This weekend I found some wonderful paper invitations at a thrift store.  As I used the first invitation, I discovered a new adventure for us.

 

PM me with your name and address and I'll send you an inkvitation kit.

 

The kit includes the metallic blue envelope, the invitation, the RSVP card and envelope, and the little ribbon.  I will put everything into a different envelope.  

 

In return, I ask that you:

  • Create the inkvitation and send it as a letter or an invitation to to ink to someone who needs cheering up. I'd suggest you can even use it as a Co-Razy-View (CRV). If you post pictures of your Inkvitations, I will send you another special letters / kudo.
  • Send the RSVP card back to me filled out with your inks.  I will use the RSVP cards in the 2018 fade test.  

As a special thank you, I will include some Tomoe River Paper and a sheet of FP friendly metallic paper.

 

I have twenty sets available.

I sent you one too.  (Well, really I sent two because I could do that for 2 oz, but didn't include extra paper because of the weight).

Done and going out in tomorrow's mail.

Ink used: Diamine Cocoa Shimmer
Pen: Jinhao 992, F

The ink worked well, even on the shimmery blue envelope. The photo uploader won't let me attach my pics at a normal size/decent resolution, but here they are in their out-of-focus glory. 

 

Thank you, Amberlea. You'll get a list/writing samples of currently inked pens. I sealed the envelope before remembering to take a picture, though.

M - The box came in and the books are AMAZING.

Oh good to know. Yes they are aren't they? I look forward to seeing them again in scanned form.

 

I also should let you know the inkvitations came in the mail today - and that made me look here. Have been having a little computer trouble last week, so off the net for about a week starting last week monday; I did not see your post before just now...
