Every so often I get a bit bored with my materials and go in search of new toys. I found a dip pen and some calligraphy inks in my studio so I had some fun with this envelope. I liked the sense of freedom and looseness that the dip pen and its slightly scratchy nib gave me - I felt a lot less 'tight' then I sometimes do when drawing with rollerball or fine tipped pens. Not knowing when the ink might run out also added an extra frisson!
