Very nice! Great victorian vibe. 

Thank you @dragondazd, you are welcome!

Indeed I had such things in mind during drawing.

It's time for June Ink Quartett.

 

At first a drawing with the four inks. It is dedicated to @amberleadavis, a greeting card with best wishes and a small discovery about the origin of ghosts. 😇

The ink colours are not to see that well, so I decided to make a photo from my ink database cards as well. There is a calligraphy headline, a swab and one line of text with every fountain pen I ever used the ink. This time also with the four pens of the month.

OOOOO Thank you!!!!

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Create a Ghostly Avatar and I'll send you a letter. Check out some Ink comparisons: The Great PPS Comparison 

Don't know where to start?  Look at the Inky Topics O'day.  Then, see inks sorted by color: Blue Purple Brown Red Green Dark Green Orange Black Pinks Yellows Blue-Blacks Grey/Gray UVInks Turquoise/Teal MURKY

The July Ink Quartett is special. It was a lot more effort to find four fitting inks - I had to try a lot this time. The setup that limited my choices was in the self restriction to use only fountain pens that I got for birthday. Santini Libra Voyager and Waterman Perspective Champagne were out, as I had used them before (in October, December and February). There were only four remaining:

Pelikano 2 (received 1968) - Dominant Indistry Leaf Green

Parker IM premium (bought by myself 2017) - Rohrer & Klingner Scabiosa

Harley Davidson (received 2021) - Pelikan Edelstein Ruby Red

Conway Stewart JR Mirage (bought by myself 2022) - Pilot Iroshizuku tsuki-yo

 

And here is my drawing for July:

Unfortunately, the colours of the fine lines are not well represented in the photo.

 

Same as last month, the swatch cards with pens:

(damm, I missed the entry with the Pelikano)

 

My oldest and my newest fountain pen, both are in the July rotation. The 54 years old Pelikano 2 is the smoothest writer of them all, the newest is the most beautiful.

One life!

Thank you for doing this, InesF!  You always manage to come up with interesting designs.
