Dip nib pen or brush letter

My attempt to calligraphy and to use one of my dip pens, the Nikko G. I need to practice a lot, lot more:)) The Nikko G made the job easier, sure because the black paper isn't a special quality of paper. I had a hard time with other dip pens. Sometimes the nib got stuck on the paper. The paper is copy paper of a simple chinese brand and weights 80 grams. You see this paper on the inside of the card. Nikko G made the writing on this paper easier for me. I like the flow of the Nikko G dip pen:))

The envelope is handmade with the same copy paper (black). I did the swirls also with the Nikko G. The NIkko G didn't had difficulties to make the curls. As I mention the paper is copy paper, but the Nikko G moved easily on the paper while making the swirls. The paper did feel like thin paper while I was witing on it. Lucky me, I wouldn't be encouraged to start all over again if it all went wrong!
