It’s not everyday that wedding professionals from around the world sing the praises of your designs.
As an Independent Designer for Minted, I recently participated in their wedding invitation design challenge. When I got married, I dreamt of a destination wedding in Hawaii. With bright hibiscus flowers, soft sand beaches and a ‘watercolor painted sky’ as our backdrop, my husband and I would be wed in paradise. Although my dreams of a destination wedding never came true, I did my best to create a lovely nature-inspired outdoor wedding.
‘Painted Sky’ or ‘Watercolor Sky’ is a bright and bold invitation suite, perfect for a destination or outdoor wedding. I created this modern design in four color ways. These choices include hues of blue, orange, pink, purple and yellow. With names like ‘Mango Tango,’ ‘Blue Hawaiian,’ Strawberry Daiquiri’ and ‘Tequila Sunrise,’ your wedding ought to be a party!
After submitting my files among over 1400 other invitation designs, Minted selected my design as an Editor’s Pick and is currently selling this as a new design for 2013. Minted also announced their special prize winners on Julep just a few weeks ago. As a brand new offering for their cards, the luxurious TripleThick paper is the best in the industry. ‘Painted Sky’ was chosen as a runner up for the ‘TripleThick Award.’ It’s simply an award for the best design to showcase the beauty of the TripleThick.
Just across the pond, The Pretty Blog sang the praises of ‘Painted Sky’. The Pretty Blog has over 18,000 facebook followers. Christine and Nicola are the creative sisters behind this blog.
