After spending the last ~20 weeks of 2017 telling myself I’d participate in the Weekly Ink Project (and never quite getting around to it), I’m determined to stay on top of the more manageable 2018 incarnation from the start :P

 

For those who can't read my handwriting, this is Kyo no Oto #07 Hisoku and (Sailor) Kobe Nagasawa #64 Sumiyoshi Yamate Jade Green.

 

 

I would have disregarded these two inks if I saw them separately. But here they look very nice together.

I like the seagreen and jade together, very much, and like LG says, if used singly, while I would still like the seagreen (I expect) I doubt the jade would get my attention much. So definitely a win, in my book, to combine them on the page like this!

WOW! I love this combination!! The top portion looks like an amazing sunset.

Glad you thought to try it, and now I need that KWZ :-)

Some warm colors on a cold winter's day. [Apologies if the photos look a bit washed out —I took them in direct sunlight]

Not washed out at all on my display. Beautiful choices and drawings.

I thought the monthly challenges might save me some money, but everyone is bringing their A Game, and it's two-for-one! This might cost me more since it's not even mid-January, and I'm already :drool:

I agree that doesn’t look washed out at all. Such a warm combo, perfect for winter.

 

It has become a habit of mine to create a new thread on Sunday for a new week, then I realised it’s now monthly, LOL.

 

 

True, but we can always contribute more than once, if we are motivated and inspired, n'est-ce pas? ;)

Edit: Oh, this picture so does not bring out the warmth of the Winterglow red and so reduces the complex dirty Rikyu-Cha to an almost brown-black. What are you gonna do? Guess we'll have to settle for this:

I agree. Happily, if you google a distinctive part of the text, you soon find this link where you can read the complete tale.

I recall this from I think it was one of the Harry Potter movies. (or a variation of it)

Yes, the fairy tale from the seventh and final book in the Harry Potter series. I still enjoy re-reading the series from time to time :)

Oh I seem to remember this... Is it the tale about the origin of the elder wand or something?

I believe so. I didn't read the books, but listened to most of them on audio books. But I seem to recall this from the movie.

Hey! Noihvo! No fair ending mid-story. We need to know what happened to these three brothers! :angry: :)

These three weren't nearly as close as I thought they would be. Just three blues I happened to have in pens at the moment. I didn't fool with color balance or anything, but my perception of ink on paper (Tomoe River) is somewhat different than the scan....

Indeed, it did get my attention. :D Thank you!

 

I like your match - not so different from mine. Clearly I need to work on my handwriting or something. :) Today I discovered that the Robert Oster Midnight Sapphire looks amazing on Tomoe River paper, so I'm pondering another writing sample to show it off (but it's in my Hobonichi, which is the only white Tomoe River paper I have, and I'm not sure how it'll look in my cream Hippo Noto - I guess we'll see).
