ECS challenge for March is rainbows. 

I pulled out my Copic wide pen which I had altered the tip making it a straight edged broad nib. It's 3/4"w. It was dried out so I dropped some Copic alcohol refill on the tip (Crimson and Ultramarine). Gave me some interesting effects on my calligraphy paper. But for what I wanted the tip was  bit too big for my main word and the colors to overpowering - so...

I covered part of the tip with masking tape, added "Maize" (a lovely yellow) and some 99% alcohol and started writing my "Rainbows" word. The yellow didn't really show up other than the ink was less intense. So I added a line of Derwent Inktense watercolor pencil "Sun Yellow" on the right edge. Much better. Then added the rest of the quote using a 3.0 parallel pen and Sumi ink in one of my funky styles.
