So, I had posted earlier about how to turn plain white invites into someting special…well I think I found a solution. Painting the borders of the invites black (very carfully) ans putting stencils of our antique-ish design on the back of the invite pocket envelope type thing. Now, I don’t know exactly if there are other people who have attempted hand painting their own invites? But I think I’m liking the look of how they are turning out so far. The lines are clean for the most part, but still not perfect which I actually don’t mind. Since it’s kind of vintage themed anyway, I feel that a little imperfection adds to that feel, and my FI actually likes it. 🙂
I know that it probably sounds like these might turn out looking like a hot mess, but I promise once I finish one entirely, with the envelopes and everything that I will post pics. I have to order different colored envelopes so that won’t be for a while, but ya know. lol
So has anyone else hand painted or stenciled their own invites? What was your experience?
