Wedding Invitations

On the weekend me, my little sis, Eyal and my WEDSM (wicked-ex-defacto-stepmother (and you think YOU KNOW complicated kinship systems !)) made the invitations to the wedding! We had such a great time doing it. My brother's defacto-girlfriend-sweetheart suggested we paint little cards and use them as something original. With a little help from the arts supply lady ("now don't forget to have FUN, I see too many couples stress about this!") we ended up around the coffee table on cushions painting and drawing our little hearts out.

With plenty of good food (Indian take-way) a couple of bottles of wine (not for the little sis), and some delicious organic chocolate we rode the wave of creativity all weekend and produced 72 beautiful little cards. We had a break to watch "Sex and the City" movie, but it couldn't compare to sharing stories, swapping ideas and complimenting each others skills around the table with our four little paintbrushes and box of pencils.

In fact we would have done more if need be (Eyal and I were excited to find a few little cards still unpainted). The secret was adding tracing paper over the top with the details printed on it. It looks awesome. We are having doubts about our ability to 'let go' and send them all away to their new owners!

Here are some pics.

Notice the three up the back with the tracing paper over the top.
