Roxie gave us an unusual card sketch today with part of the design going off the main card. To fit in my pen flourish, I had to reposition the image panel(oval on mine) a little. After I had sponged ink and used chalks on my oval, I used my X-acto blade to scrape away some of the coloring for added texture.

Oh my - I used to have fountain pens just like that, I think they came from my grandmother's house. They had little things on the side that you lifted to suck ink into the reservoir.
Love the shaped tags you used for the bottom part of the sketch.
