Wow...I'm seriously floored by your happy comments! Thank you. I'm so glad you guys like it! I'm super stoked about at the family's response. :)

@blotbot...I made teal ink using Zillers: sweet grass green, midnight blue (1:1), a couple drops of black then white (and some water) until I was happy with tone and consistency. Worked like a charm. Still no sumi for superthin thins...but decent flow :)

Star, this is really INCREDIBLE!
Congratulations, you are truly gifted!
Congratulations, again, for your upcoming wedding in a few weeks.

Notwithstanding the gorgeous envelope addressing,
I am particularly jealous of your typography skills, the layout and design work are fabulous, well done!

( On a nostalgic sidenote... When we got married fifteen years ago, all we had was a Windows 95 computer  LOL   Wow... Now I have no excuse... Next year is our twentieth anniversary... Is one year enough to master copperplate calligraphy and flourishing?    :o  :o  :o ;) )

Wow Eric, thank you!! I had no clue what I was doing regarding the typography...it was all new. In fact, I started with that, which brought me to calligraphy. It was a great project! :)

Just exquisite work, Star! Really, pat yourself on the back.

Did your fiancé see the suite step-by-step or the final product all at once? He must have been so proud! It's like a sweet punch in the face! <3
