I’m craving a little sunshine and warmth today so I thought I’d post about a wedding in Tuscany, Italy. Katie, the bride, had seen the “Amore” graphic on my website and asked if I could create a “Save the Date” using this typographic design…. of course, I was delighted. Both she and her fiance, Ben, really liked the rough textured background on my original design which I created by applying silkscreen ink to the paper with a rubber brayer. We decided to use this technique for the background of their cards. I mixed several different ink colors inspired by the sun-bleached walls that are so prevalent in Tuscany. By applying different layers of earth tone inks, each card had it’s own unique coloring and seemed to radiate sunshine!
