Inkvent 2019 – Day 25: Happy Holidays (shimmer & sheen)

Merry Christmas everyone! We’re between the morning excitement of gifts followed by breakfast, and the main family dinner, so…..

Today brings us to the end, with Happy Holidays. The label doesn’t state standard, shimmer, or sheen on this final bottle. Initially I thought it was just a shimmer ink from the first touch on paper, but when it hit the Rhodia paper, that changed in a hurry.

I also assumed it was blue looking at the label, and having peeked into the bottle. But after the first pass on the Pelikan Pad, I thought maybe it was a deep green. Then I got some on my finger – definitely blue for the base. Another complex colour with a lot of range.

Definitely not your run of the mill inks in this set. I will likely follow this up with some final thoughts, but it’s time to get ready to go. Happy Holidays everyone!
