Waaaaah! I had been saving this envelope for years. (Since 1999 or so!!) The cattail and bird were done with a flat brush by my calligraphy instructor and mentor, Ellen Simon. With my son, Matt, participating in his wildlife practicum up in the U.P. of Michigan this past summer, I thought it would be a good time to use it. I added the lettering with ZIG Calligraphy Markers. Evidently, it didn't arrive before the practicum ended.
This is an exercise in how to make a calligrapher cry.
But, I did get the envelope back - so -
I guess I got to have my cake and eat it too.
(Shouldn't it be "eat my cake and have it too"? That makes more sense to me...)
Happy weekend everyone.
Go forth and flourish!
