After taking another class with Gemma Black "Adolf Bernd style" thought I'd practice... 

I used only combintions of 2 colors: Winsor & Newton Permanent  Crimson and Winsor Blue. Amazing how many variations one can get... The card is from the summer's week long 100 teachers event.

Just took a ZOOM class with Jacqueline Sullivan hosted by the Edmonton Calligraphy Society, so thought I'd use what I created during class...

I LOVE Liesbeth Boudons style of lettering. I sprinkled my paper with Bister powders (red, yellow, blue and brown) and then with a Parallel pen and water wrote out the name. It looks so much like prehistoric type lettering hence the use of a dinosaur stamp...

The card was an alcohol piece I did a while back.
