Still riffing on Judy Detrick's wonderful "Decorated Caps" class for the Friends of Calligraphy a while back! For these I used my largest broad nib and drew the letters in J. Herbin cyclamen ink, then dropped in my old standby, Spectralite 56K gold (which conveniently comes with an eyedropper installed).
After the letter was dry (sometimes with a little paper-towel wicking to take away the puddles) I added the rest of the name with pointed pen, full bleed.
Thank goodness for thank-you notes, which give me a great excuse to play!
As always, a beautiful notecard helps to inspire...
