When you have the full set of 96 Tombow Dual Brush Pens, there are LOTS of green colours to choose from if you’re writing anything with a Spring theme! I have been practicing my flourishing and decided to add some swashes and loops when I wrote the word “March.”
Then I thought of St. Patrick’s Day, and drew and coloured some little shamrocks for a fun effect. Because the Dual Brush pens are double ended, I used the bullet nib instead of the brush tip for the shamrocks. If you would like to download and print this, click HERE or on the photo below.

I continued the green theme with the word “Spring” and created this as a video on Instagram, with the flower pot illustration. I love using the colour green this time of year. It makes me feel optimistic that the snow will eventually disappear. ha ha
The MonoTwin is a permanent marker with two ends of different sizes of bullet nibs, and I used the .8 mm tip to draw the flower. The ink is quick drying so you can use it with the waterbased markers and not worry about drying time or waiting. Love it!
The third lettering design created with my Tombow pens is the word ‘lucky’, which I posted on Instagram as a video. This technique is called “faux calligraphy” and is a wonderful way to achieve some fun calligraphy effects without the precise execution of a brush pen. Anyone can change their cursive into calligraphy using this method.
I always use Tombow Mono Drawing pencils and my Tombow Monotwin Permanent marker for this technique.
Here is my video that shows you how:
