Yay, another watercolored wedding invitation suite! I just sent these invitations to the couple, and I can't get over their beautiful navy+mustard+silver color palette. Envelope liners are LOVE. I am never designing a wedding invitation again without an envelope liner. Haha :P
Ana wanted a chevron print, so I watercolored a couple of designs.
And then I went on to watercolor their names and the date (which was initially used for the save-the-date). I am lazy, and don't use pencils when I do watercolor, and this is one method that I will teach at the coming watercolor level2 crafternoon ;)
For the monogram, I experimented with liquid mask and used an old rigger paintbrush to do paint the m+a. And then I washed over it using a wet-on-wet technique (my fave!)
I'm happy the couple decided to go for an accordion style invitation because it really goes well with the chevron theme.
and used one of my watercolored fonts (Officine Sans) for the headers.
And the one thing I always look forward to when designing invitations is the map! This one was a simple watercolor sketch with more of the watercolored type.
Finished the invites off with simple calligraphy
