Hen Night / Wedding Shower Invitations

I have been asked to produce eight Hen Night / Wedding Shower Invitations for a client's forthcoming wedding, and here is the finished result.... Using a vintage corset advertisement as the body of the invite I then added personalised wording to the front area spelling out "Lucys' Hen Weekend", the top of the corset was decorated with five vintage ladies all looking at their beautiful corsets, in a humorous pose.

The whole piece was mounted on to strong cardstock to give a sumptuous "expensive" feel and weight to the invite. The reverse of the card was a pearlesant lilac silky paper to which the invite wording was added. I used a pretty font, accented with birds for the wording.

All eight of the invites were then packed in tissue paper into a decorative box for presentation to the client.

These are so beautiful! I have just found you off LuLu's site. Your blog is wonderful! I am looking for some images of mermaids. Do you know of somewhere that has some good ones? I am wanting to make some soldered charms with them. I noticed you love fairies & mermaids like I do so maybe you have an idea of mermaid sources. Have a wonderful week.

Amanda thank you for your suggestion of using accetate on vintage photos & creating my own mermaid. I have never used this. I think I should read up on this technique. Also, thank you for stopping by to visit me. The photo of you in fairy wings is so pretty! Love it!
