Learning to Hand Letter

Lately I've been loving pretty things like this (which I actually ordered a couple weeks ago) and this (both by Lindsay Letters). They inspired me to try to learn a little bit about hand lettering. My style is different, but I'm practicing using my pen and ink (and the little kit of nibs I bought).

This is a saying I heard at girls camp every summer and I thought it would work to practice with. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. I scanned in the original ink drawing and put it on a few different colored backgrounds, but I liked how this peachy color looked. I still want to print it out on white paper and use gold foil to emboss the entire print. I think it would work really well with the "royal" concept, so I'll have to order some.
