One shot at painting on the invitation-

I have to say that I held my breath and fought with this blotter-like paper but I was bound and determined to make it work. The original doesn't look quite as cartoonish as how it shows on the screen. It is a 7x7 card so I had plenty of room but it was still quite small and tedious. Thank goodness for my new, tiny and much to expensive brush I bought after attending the IAMPETH conference. I say now, it was worth it. Anyway, I did it and hopefully they will like it. It also has gold dots all around which unfortunately the scanner doesn't pick up. I think that the dots actually make the piece work so I am sorry you can't see it.
 So,who really wants a 5 piece place setting anyway?
 Well, thinking back, I did!
