I am super excited about these hand-painted invitation mock-ups we created yesterday! Not only because I think they have fabulous potential, but because it is so out-of-the-box for us!  These gorgeous hand colored Peony invitations were inspired by a potential client who mentioned in a consultation that one of the flowers she would be using were peonies (and you know how gaga we are over those).

Each flower starts off with a Persian Blue embossed outline, and then each petal is filled and shaded, by hand, using a combination of artist chalks and pencils.  The petal tips and outlines are filled in with a gold ink.

This design is the first "rough draft" if you will for what will eventually become a custom pocket folder invitation.  A hand painted layered peony or monogram seal will complete the exterior.  The flowers are so reminiscent of the kinds of patterns you'd find on a fancy tea cup from the 1940's.  Love!!

The interior invitation has two embossed peonies with gold ink detail, and chalk and pencil coloring. 
Now that I have gone out on the limb, I have to say... I can't wait to explore this new-to-me invitation style.  Perhaps soon you will see a hand-colored line on our website.  Stay tuned!

Thanks so much for the encouragement, Tiffany! This was a totally "out on a limb" design for me, but I was kind of obsessed with the idea, and had to get it out there. I can't wait to experiment more!
