Zig Calligraphy Pens

Hi everyone

Last weekend I was creating some fun shapes and designs simply by using and mixing the calligraphy pens.
These pens are dual tip meaning that you have a small and wider nib so perfect for everything!
As the summer seems to be coming to an end I decided to work with some of the Autumnal colours.

When you mix the pens together you can create some awesome effects on your lettering.  The swirls were made by using the thin nib.  The leaves are created the same way you create the flower petals which can be found {HERE}

For this card I used lines and circles to create a ribbon effect and loved how it turned out.  As you can see on the 'Thank You' section there is some pencil lines.  This shows you how it can help to position your letters.  Once the ink is dry then gently rub the lines away.

Here the same techniques are used but in different colours and you will also spot the Kuretake Brush and Scroll pens.

Have a creative weekend and thanks for stopping by
Beckie :)
