Custom style and fun monograms

Hope you're enjoying the beautiful fall weather! The first two shots were a custom style done for Jaime. She has very modern invitations and wanted something to match. She emailed me a sample of a style she was interested in, and this is what I came up with in the end, using a bronze metallic ink to match her return address. (Is bronze the new color of the season??) It was a fun style to work in. The monograms were done on Amanda's programs (her envelopes are pictured a few posts down...) Simple, clean, and very pretty!

Fun colorwork!

The first shot here was for Ahmad and Erika - the invitations were done by and while I don't have pictures of the invites themselves, I have seen them and they are GORGEOUS! The leaves and the liner were a shimmery copper so I matched the ink color and used fine flourished script, alternate caps. I can't wait to see the placecards - I have a feeling they are going to be fantastic! Lauren's save the dates were a beautiful dusty pink so we matched that ink color and used a combination of two lettering styles: Fine flourished, alt caps for the names and uneven caps for the address. I love the effect of the two styles together!!

Busy month!

Blogger doesn't want to let me post all of my pictures at once, so I'll break it up into two posts. Here are some shots of my first international job! Booked by Julie from Hong Kong and done in wispy lettering, black ink. Plus another sneak peak at what my dining room looks like on any given day... :0)
