It's all in the details

This corner detail is taken from an invitation suite we finished this week. The couple were inspired by the decorations they saw on a trip to the Taj Mahal so we incorporated some of that imagery into their invitations. They were printed in (hand mixed) champagne gold and antique gold inks, mounted on antique gold backings and the liners were a beautiful handmade ivory and gold marbled paper. Deliciously decadent.

Of course, I'm a sucker for architectural details.

Oooh, those came out really lovely! Even better than I was picturing from your sketches!

Thanks, Kelly. Getting the colors right was key - it's hard to mix a champagne gold! (key, tons of t-white).
