Letters from Jan/Feb


I have come late to Copperplate. I have a beautiful envelope from an exchange, gold ink on black envelope that inspired me to try it out and I was able to take a workshop through my guild last year, so it seemed a good one to do for this challenge, to get me to work with it. I have started with the letters that seemed to come most easily. :-) I am using water colours on water colour paper. The border is with Chinese ink.

You may be just beginning with copperplate, but you show good consistency and control. I like the way you are presenting your letters.

The colours work really well along with the border - and the letters have a lovely flow.
