Rain Forest


Tricia  is an environmentalist so was wanting a natural look for her invitations, as the ceremony was to be held in a beautiful garden filled with waterfalls and palms .  I used natural parchment card with raffia on this trifold invitation.  The design was simple but effective.   The fronds were sprayed with glimmer mist creating dimension and  resulting in a very subtle shine which  lifted the invitation while still maintaining its natural feel.


Sand, Sea and Surf


This is a sample I made for a beach wedding.  I like the combination of  the vellum overlay and the raffia.  I was trying to capture the feeling of a wind-swept beach.
