Inspired Ink – A Vintage Hawaiian Wedding Invitation

I am thrilled to bring you this  Inspired Ink hand-picked by Amanda from Ruffled Blog!  Amanda sent over the loveliest inspiration board to enlighten my creation and I am so glad she did.

This week it is all about giving a vintage edge to Hawaiian wedding themes.  Now let’s not be afraid of the word theme here (I know, I know it is overused at times).  The word Hawaii, for me, conjures images of soft sands, crystal waters, vibrant blooms and warm breezes – what better wedding inspiration – right?


The choice of kraft paper allowed the sweeping painted details in ivory acrylic to really pop!  A simple tied program on apricot shimmer cardstock was a fun, unexpected contrast of materials.   Overall I wanted to infuse warmth and vibrance with a touch of refinement.  The envelope liner even sports a bit of painting in the upper right to unify the look (Imagine a liner cut from vintage Hawaii posters – hmmm…).

Thanks again Amanda!
