A new year, and this time a new decade, brings time to renew focus on what we love. For me, it's calligraphy! Earlier this month, I spent some time making new envelope samples, to showcase some of the inks I've been loving!
It's so much fun to dream up fictional addresses for samples. I tend to pick characters and couples from favorite books and movies, although historical figures could work too! Ms. Bridget Jones above was done in shimmering ink: Bronze from the Finetec Pearl Colors palette.
With the same palette, using Red, I tried out a much more whimsical style than what I'm used to, for my favorite time-traveling duo.
Black ink on a crisp white envelope is classic! Here I used Iron Gall Ink.
These white envelopes are from Cards and Pockets. I've tried a handful of their colored envelopes, and the quality is wonderful. I'll be sharing samples of calligraphy on colored envelopes in the coming weeks.
