Hi List 3,
My envelopes are in the mail as of today, or this eve for some. Sorry to be at the last minute, and please excuse my blobs and mistakes. I just couldn't decide on an envelope color, ink, nib, card design or anything! Have you ever been this indecisive??!! There is no end to the glorious colors and beauty I see around me this Fall in upstate NY, you'd think my inspiration would be endless! But I guess I needed to enjoy the beauty, and  wait until we had a rainy, cold day to finish my envelopes!

Thanks for your gorgeous envelopes and cards so far, it really helps me to see what is possible and to practice more!

I'm PtownK on IG and would love it if you all could follow me, Im on the newbie side of calligraphy, but becoming obsessed! I'm trying to see if I have you all, still working on it!


Mike, your card was amazingly beautiful !  I feel very lucky to have one on my wall.

As for my own cards, I only have a group picture of all the envelopes that I posted on my IG.  Could someone please post pictures of my clumsy work of art?
Thanks in advance.

I would be happy to post your envelope and card. And I would not use the word clumsy to describe your work. I would use the word exquisite. I loved your card.


Front of card--the feather is finely cut from a piece of paper and applied--beautiful work

Interior of card (plus a personal message):

Your calligraphy Nd flourishes are so stunning! I look at my envelope all the time and try to copy your writing style! Thank you so much! Kaye

Hello, Kaye,

   Just received your beautiful water color card!  Thanks.

Thanks Agnes! It was a struggle, as I mentioned in or PM message. I was going to send out blank envelops, until I got Annie To's card and said she couldn't wait to get mine. Gulp! So I got to work the last Friday nite and got the cards done and sent out on 8/30.

Received a wonderful card from Kaye today--beautiful colors--Thanks very much.
To answer your question, the ink I used was Dr. Martin's Iridescent Sequins Blue.

Thanks Mike! Glad you got it! I will have to look for that iridescent Blue, so stunning!

I just posted my pics to the spoiler topic. Great idea!

As I am pretty sure everyone has received mine as well by now, here are the pictures.
Sorry for the bad quality!

The last picture show the closeup of my two favourites…I'd really appreciate it, if the two who got these could scan them for me because I've forgotten it.  :-[

Wow Lisa! These birds are incredible! Are they watercolor?

Hi all! Thanks for starting this topic Mike, your envelope and card are stunning! And Lisa, those birds are amazing!!!!

I sent out my list #2, just barely, on August 30, so international peeps may be waiting a bit longer.  :(
Top pic is a photo of my bloopers, I didn't take pics of envelopes before sending out.

Bottom pic is from the stunning 9 envelopes I've received so far! It doesn't seem fair does it? Sorry for the simple, error laden envelopes. The gouache or nibs wouldn't flow good for me. It took me several tries to get something presentable, not to mention those pesky spelling errors!

Great learning though, for my first exchange. I learned right off from Agnes's and Michael's envelopes that my hand is too heavy and I needed better guidelines set up. Next time...

I put my pics in IG previously, PtownK.  Thanks everyone! Kaye

Thank you for the exemplar! I have been searching for an exemplar that I can begin serious practice with.
