Day #2 Includes Lots of Shimmer and Sheen!

Today we are in for a lovely ink surprise! It’s a beautiful green ink with lots of shimmer and sheen.

Inkvent Day #2: Diamine Garland

The label on the side of the bottle shows this Garland ink includes some shimmer and sheen.

Check out this next picture I took. Do you see it?

There are bright bits of blue shimmer sitting at the bottom of my tiny bottle. I already know I’m in for a real treat.

Let’s take a look at my swatch card and writing sample. Looking straight on I can see what looks like halos of red which makes my writing appear to glow a bit. Depending on the lighting, my swatch card shows a dark teal green ink color.

Here’s a close up of my writing sample that shows the gorgeous red sheen with bits of blue shimmers.

I’m saving the best picture for last. This is one stunning swatch card I have in my possession. Sigh! 🤩

From my writing samples, I can see bits of the teal green ink color surrounded by the red sheen and sprinkles of blue shimmer. Gorgeous, isn’t it?

Here’s a quick pen & ink sketch on mixed media paper:

I’m thoroughly enjoying this lovely ink color and I’m looking forward to using this in some of my pen & ink artwork. This is definitely on my wish list and I hope Diamine produces this color in their larger bottle.
