Steampunk gets a Victorian lilac make-over!

I have a couple of new designs to share (here and here, if you just can't wait for the blog post!), but before I do, I wanted to share a recent custom order, using the Steampunk inspired wedding invitation design as its starting point.

When Stephanie and Archie first contacted me, I have to admit I wasn't convinced the copper backing and embossed stamping detail would work well with their ivory and Victorian lilac palette.  But in the end, I just loved the color combination!

Unfortunately, my printer didn't print well on the copper envelopes (although it's done just fine in the past on metallic "champagne" and silver...strange) but the solution we came up with really tied the entire design and palette together, don't you think?

I'm usually only a fan of wrap-around labels if they're necessary - otherwise I prefer to print directly on the envelope - but working on this order might have converted me!

Congratulations, Stephanie & Archie!
