For my sister's bridal shower invite, I was allowed to have free reign with the aesthetic and colors. It was very difficult to narrow it down to just one style, but I decided that hand lettered invites with subtle watercolor accents suited her personality best. This was one of my first stabs at hand lettering, so it took several hours of layering and piecing together stacks of ripped pieces of tracing paper until the whole invite came together and looked cohesive. Then came the process of screen printing and applying watercolor in layers to every invite, one at a time. which was also time-consuming but so worth it to see the excited look on her face when I revealed it to her.
I received a fantastic online response to these as well.
