Watercolored Summer Party Invitation, Menu, Bar card and Place cards

A little departure from all the letterpress projects... and I was able to break out my watercolors for this one!  I hand watercolored all the text and images, then scanned them, arranged them on the page and had them digitally printed on a 110# textured paper to give it that watercolor paper feel. The place cards were hand watercolored with the individual guests names after they were printed- right before everything was packaged and sent off to the client. It was a tight turnaround time, but I think it turned out pretty cute for a mid-summer champagne and lobster dinner party. Included below are a few close-ups of the actual watercolors before they were scanned and printed. So many words were painted! And I totally got hungry working on the menu... invite
