Many times in my design life I've been faced with the dilemma of knowing exactly what I want something to look like, and then the challenge of how to make that. While working on an invitation suite for a fantastic couple who wanted gorgeous, elegant, natural looking invitations with a hint of glam, I decided to use a tree branch motif. Trees themselves, are natural, beautiful, and simple. Then to add the touch of sparkle, I decided to try something new: hand painting a little subtle sparkle onto the simple tree branch.
Oh-and the reply cards have a matching motif and are hand sparkled as well! Did you notice the reply choices? The couple was so adorable and creative with these! I love how they really made it their own!
