Playing around with Dr. PH Martins copper plate gold calligraphy ink ( thanks to Mea who mentioned the white colour) and liquid white Aero colour from Schminke with a dip pen. Since I simply love dip pens these inks are perfect!  I am so fascinated!
I’ve started to write a series of love quotes and adding some spontaneous drawing to it and then finishing it off with other ideas I found in scrap booking.
I am doing this on the black pages of a photo album, I might add some photos to it later.
Love to hear your comments!

Gita,

Oh, this is lovely, such fun. A bit of whimsy and romance.

Keep at it.  I want to see more.

It’s difficult to choose the right love quote .. there are so many..
Here’s a bit of embossing, too.

Gita,

I love the top half, but my bad eye is rejecting the bottom half as too busy.

Love the black and white with just a tiny bit of color.

You are right Mea, I trimmed the photo from the busy words. Looks a lot better. 👍🏼 I have learnt too many techniques in card making until now that I have to slim down their implementation.
In real I shall cover up the bottom with a Photo collage.

Thank you Mary- Lou. I just love this ink!

Bob Marley’s thoughts about Love was more than I could fill this page. One needs patience to read through these small letters. 😐
