kathy ribbon writing

for several years the local calligraphy guild would make birthday cards for all the members. this was the last one. we called it ribbon writing. you don't really need an exemplar. you just write a big loopy name. then go back and write it again, overlapping the second line. then color in the ribbon with colored pencils. and add a drop shadow with a soft gray or very pale blue bullet marker. it wouldn't hurt to pencil the name first. after you did 10 or 12, you'd be able to write names without penciling.
