Depending on your vision, why not start off by purchasing a few samples to try out these great tips and tricks to add value to your DIY wedding invitations.
1. Punched and Cut-Out Accents
When it comes to adding accents, you can always use specialty paper or even card stock in a different colour to enhance the look you are going for in a non-traditional way (such as with a layered wedding invitation). With the aid of speciality equipment such as punches or a utility pen knife, you can definitely come about some interesting shapes to add to your handmade wedding invitations, and even the DIY envelope too. Come about pretty punched flowers or even a leaf design to create a beautiful tree design by applying the cut leaves of varying colours around a watercolour painted bark, and carry the same theme forward onto the envelope by using a bold colour on the envelope liner and trailing it with leaves.
2. Watercolour Ombre and Sponge Treatments
Ombre is such a fun and lovely treatment to use on paper or even in fashion. This would be ideal if the bridesmaids were to wear ombre-shaded dresses, or will have ombre hair colouring as a styling feature to tie it in. Using this technique on your DIY wedding invitations can be a wonderful addition, as it gives it character and depth. You can use a sponge with watercolours to achieve this look or even to come up with various textures based on how it’s applied. Dabbing, streaking or splotching the watercolour paint onto your invitations kits can definitely add to the look that’s already present on the paper, and if it already comes with a certain base texture, then it will only accent it more, giving you a truly unique look. Consider these tricks when you set about creating your DIY wedding invitations.
