i'm terrible at studying historical alphabets. but i love to find quirky writing that somebody else did that reminds me of something old. this is the first attempt of this style. i liked it enough that i pulled out graph paper and worked out some more accurate letters.

this is colored pencil and i blended (smeared) it by scribbling across it with a blue pencil that was lighter than the paper.

the tiger circus stamp was perfect for this envelope, but it was too tall. so, i used up the last of my firecracker stamps because....that stamp always gave me fits. i think it is pretty, but i never found a way to use it that i loved.
