You don’t have to be an expert in calligraphy to use a quill and ink pot – simply by playing with squiggles and swirls you can create simple but effective cards.
- Plain coloured card
- A calligraphy quill
- A pot of white ink
Practice using the calligraphy quill on a scrap piece of card. Find the best, most comfortable way to use the quill and take note of how the ink works and how quickly it runs out. Have a play with patterns.
Once you’ve practiced, squiggle a Christmas tree with a few swirly baubles, a stump and a star on top on the card. Finish the card off with a message – like ‘Merry Christmas’!
