COLOR PALETTE INSPIRATION | + amazing engagement photo[shop] magic | Victorian Trade Cards ~ E.W. Hoyt & Company

E W Hoyt & Co. trade cards

I came upon these trade cards during a search for inspiration, particularly that of a German bent.  You’ll notice they advertise Hoyt’s German Cologne.  The only thing German about the product is its name; nonetheless, the inherent beauty of the art overwhelmed me and thus I had to share.

Here, a mix of good teeth and cologne cards.  Their sepia tones and vintage appeal make them primo inspiration.

These colors brought back the memory of a heavenly engagement photo taken [and edited, of course] by Sloan Photographers.  I want this, so badly.  The thing is just SO. COOL.  When it’s this beautiful, staying inside the lines just won’t do… click on the image if you’d like to see it large and in charge.  I recommend it.
