New thoughts

This week someone asked me if I had any rehearsal dinner invitations with the place settings on them. I did not, but I am always willing to try to do new things. So, I sketched out a plate and the silverware and lightly painted it on with greyish silver. Then tinted it in a light shade of Tiffany Blue. Finished it off with the new monogram of the bride and groom.

So, here is my first attempt in acrylic , watercolor inspired design....
Hoping to do some more this week..

This is a poor attempt to show the actually card, but you get the picture and the look that I am going after.
Linked to Sunday Sketches Here

Have a great week!!


  1. I love the sophistication of this invitation. I am visiting via Sunday Sketches - I'm #5. Blessings!

  2. This is lovely, Jane. I really like how your silverware and plates turned out. And I so get you on photos of the artwork not always turning out. I find it's really difficult to capture artwork with alot of blue in it and ones with pink. Grumble. :) Hugs

  3. This is beautiful. I love your spirit of being willing to try something new. I am sure the bride and groom will be excited to see this.
