Photo by Birds of a Feather (http://www.birdsofafeatherphoto.com/)[/caption]Rossini and Mike decided they did not want to carry their STD travel theme over into their invitation suite so we started over with something new. I wanted to draw in something about their venue (outdoor wooded space) so I decided to paint some trees and grass as the main image. I then used Illustrator to create illustrations with Rossini and Mike’s likeness as the bride and groom.

I used watercolors to also create washes for all the invitation pieces and envelope liner. Each watercolor piece was painted then scanned into Photoshop to maintain the depth and range of colors watercolor provide.

The tri-fold pocket was created with eyelets and then held together with wired, gold, ribbon.
