Macaulay, our daughter, is coming today from Greenville, SC, for a baby shower that her good friend and her mother are giving her. I volunteered that I would be glad to do the place cards- so here they are. Pretty good---I can always over scrutinize my calligraphy but I actually enjoyed doing them, It was a "labor of love" for sure. For the blue, I used Peacock Blue and white Windsor and Newton Gouache which is what most calligraphers use to get opaque color. I used a oblique pen holder and pointed nib.
