Nestled amongst the trees, a mysterious house crafted from sugary delights stands, masking the sinister motives of a cunning witch.

Bright, punchy pink!

This ink is super bright and punchy in color! Loads of shimmer and is a lot of fun to draw with.

Doctor Danger

Although categorized with the purples, I find this to be like a plummy magenta color? In my head, it's a violet coded pink. it's a perfect fit with The Ribbiting Pond as I hand letter this year's vernal equinox cards, wet for a shimmer ink, which is nice for a right-handed using a glass dip pen. The shimmer seems a little subtler on this ink than a couple of others, but that might just be because the ink color and the glitter color are close in value in my eyes. :)

This ink has a lovely magenta color with a pink shimmer that looks great. It writes well and dries relatively quickly.
