For my reception I wanted to create a unique invitation, something  different to the other invitations I have made. I love nature and the free flow 
of henna designs so I based my concept from an Emirati inspired henna drawing I did with a touch of rose-red colour as an accent. I wanted volume and depth so I hand-cut
flowers, added gems and played with the shape of the oval.
 
 
initial sketch, trying to figure out the placement of flowers around the oval 
 
added the flowers and flourishes and started with the ink
 
started to  apply colour to get an understanding of balance
 
finished up the drawing but I thought it still needed a bit of tweaking so I later made edits after the scan
 
closeups of the drawing before the scan
 
final invitation with the flowers added on in relief as well sequens and glitter
 
closeups of the details
 
Thanks for looking!
