Wild Ink Press: Part II

Yesterday I began a series of posts about my recent photo shoot with Wild Ink Press. Weren't those beautifully quirky and fun cards? Wait until you see the amazing new designs Rebekah has created recently, free drawn by hand based on distinct themes. There's something even more special about letterpress when the card design is drawn by hand - a bit whimsical and somehow more authentic, especially with these two designs that are always handcrafted in their original forms.

If you've ever been to a party or stopped at the Thursday Night Market here in Chico to have henna hand-decorated on part of your body (usually a hand and wrist), you'll know how amazing it is to watch free flowing lines connect and create an intricate design. That's what Rebekah's done on these new cards, with three distinct front patterns.

I love the negative space between the two contrasting portions of this card's design.

Beautifully printed detail...

To contrast the earthiness of the henna designs, I love the softness of these hand-drawn lace patterns. The colors are pastel and delicate, and intently match the beautifully floral patterns.

I think I loved green the most, not because it's the best of the three patterns or because it has the most detail or intrigue. I think I love it because it reminds me of the intricate mechanisms of fair ferris wheels. Am I crazy?

I hope you enjoyed these additional designs from Wild Ink Press and my capturing and interpretation of them!
