I've Got Your Number

Some days, I kick back and play with making table numbers. The size of them allows for me to work with stamps, inks, and card stock, differently than making a card. 
I got a little carried away with this one.  The idea was to create a French Market theme.  It ended up more of a French collage with a shabby chic style mixed in.

This "Golden Chandelier" collection, I made for a client.  The base of the table number and matching escort card is navy blue with an ivory top sheet.  The inks are custom mixed dark blue.  The chandeliers are hand-stamped in ultra gold metallic ink.  I used two inks to create the aged effect around the cards.  These came out so beautiful.
This was some of my first botanical collection table numbers.  I did a two-tone effect inking part of the stamp in plum and part in green. 

This is one of the most popular tent number images.  It is a beautiful oak tree and the detail on it is amazing.  The numbers are in a deep russet red and the tree is hand-stamped in sepia ink onto ivory card stock.
This is another French themed table number.  This collage of images has a Paris theme.  I used six different images and four different colors on these pieces.  Gold, red, brown and black.
This was another "special" request from a client.  She liked the black damask pattern and wanted me to create a coordinating theme for her favor tag, escort cards and table numbers.  I used ivory card stock as the base and layered gold metallic paper.  These were labor intensive, but came out really nice.  I call this my "Luxe" collection. 
Moonlight and magnolias are very popular here in the South.  This botanical magnolia image is hand-stamped in sepia ink.

This was a quick table card I made for a client that was having a beach themed wedding.  She like my little starfish.  These little guys seem to be dancing across the bottom of the card.

Well, as you can see, I enjoy making these fun table numbers.  It's easy as 1, 2, 3!  Sorry, that was a little too write.

For those in the States...Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
