I thought it would be a nice little addition to card making if I could personalise them with a handwritten sentiment but I didn’t like the Faber Castell brush too much so took it as an excuse to place a little Cult Pens order. I decided to buy a few different varieties of pen, in different colours knowing that as I learnt and (hopefully) got better, different pens would  ...
