DSCN3254I love process!  Talking with the groom about imagery and specific color led us to three colors – turquoise for the text and a watercolor background of dusky violet and blue behind a swirl of papercut art.  There are tiny raised dots of 23K gold leaf on the text area that sharpen focus on the words and give the piece a subtle gleam. Setting the text block off center adds visual interest and enhances the sense of movement which is the concept behind this work. The finished ketubah was shipped flat (as all of my pieces are) with an acetate cover inside the folder and a small flap cut just over the signature area to make sure that nothing would snag the delicate papercut art.
