GPP Street Team Crusade #8


The Green Pepper Press Street Team has crusades, or challenges, on their blog. This is Crusade #8, to show a cheap tool or trick for art. This is my first time answering a crusade! This pen came to me from my grandmother when she passed away. It is silver, beautiful, ornate and I love it. But it didn't write, it was out of ink. Rather than get new ink for it, I started using it to score my cards. So for the past several years, this has been my scorer for eveything! Works great, the tip is sharp but rolls because it has a ball point pen nib. And I feel so elegant using it!
