M and P

I recently scribed the envelopes for invitations being sent out by Madeline and Pedro, and wanted to post a few pictures here. I think their suite turned out lovely; the invitation calligraphy was done by Bernard Maisner, which didn't hurt in the glamour department. I think that not having exactly matching scripts ended up looking really fresh. I loved it.
Every detail was crisp and exquisite, down to the white, beveled edges of the pieces.
And last but not least, here is Sebastian, trying his hardest to sabotage my little photo shoot. At least he looks great with the colors of the suite.

Betsy,
The ink that you used on these envelopes is gorgeous. Is it actually an ink, and if so, what type and shade? Or is it guache? Of course, your calligraphy is gorgeous, also. Love this color combo.
Thanks,
Helen

Mom Dunlap- I'm so glad you like the suite! And I agree- Sebastian does look really handsome.

And Helen, it is just gouache, yes. Thanks for your sweet comment. :)

Courtney, I use a pointed, split metal nib. Thanks for stopping by!
