I don’t normally share all of my clients invitations or inspiration / color mood boards, however this tropical blend was so gorgeous not to share! As you can see, at My Personal Artist we have a lovely array of colors and options for tropical invites! The combination of colors are truly endless.

This post was created for Sheila (a lovely stylish bride-to-be) to view the color cardstock options available for her tropical wedding invitations folders. I call this mix of tropical colors TROPICAL BLEND. I find this color combo to be softer than normal pop of hot pink hues tropical blends. Botanical and earthy with a splash of sea. So very beautiful!

Modern Ombre Watercolor Save the Dates

Modern beach wedding save the date cards featuring broad watercolor brushstrokes perfect for a tropical destination wedding!

You may have heard this before… We loved the watercolor trend so very much that we did it OVER 10 years ago! Recently, when Carson asked me to create a watercolor save the date card for her daughter’s wedding in the Bahamas I was in LOVE! Of course I took on the “challenge.” Why in quotes? It was my job as a designer and artist to take this ‘current trend’ and modernize the look, give it a twist to make it mine. Well the watercolor technique is HOT again this year and continuing to be hot for 2013. In 2004, one of the first watercolor wedding invitations I did was similar. I know, right? That was a WHOLE decade ago. Well, I guess like fashion trends, wedding invitation trends come back! So much fun and quite lovely if I may say so myself.

The paint flows perfectly like the seashore kissing the sand. These wedding save the dates will make a splash!

Blue watercolor paint is also a perfect choice for a destination wedding at the beach or tropical venue. Now that the watercolor is created,  I can easily change the color to green, aqua blue, mint, fandango pink, red, khaki brown, beet red, purple, and more!
