Watercolor Invitations

Instead of having a printer make plates (which are not recyclable and are often cleaned with toxic chemicals), my husband and I decided to print our invitations at home.  He modified a cartouche from a 1659 map of New England with Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 and printed it out on recycled watercolor paper for me to paint.  We then scanned the image back in and printed out the rest of the invitations on post-consumer waste parchment paper (which we rolled up and tied with scrap leather cord).
