Pinterest didn't have to much inspiration for deadly invites, so I looked at a lot of mexican folk art. Elyse and I came up with different ideas and we finally decided on a Mexican shadow box that opens up to little trinkets and skeletons in scenes. Of course, this would have to be 2D so it could fit in an envelope, so I got to work.
I used acrylic paint and did calligraphy for the words.
|Arrived! Printed on velum to give it a sense of a shadow box, and some depth.|
|My hope was that it would look like an ofrenda on it's own, a day of the dead alter.|
