View Full Version : DBV Monigram ~ CC please!

This is my first try at both a monigram and illumination.

It's a gift for my niece who just got married. Her new last name starts with V, and I used both of their first initals.

9X12 paper (this is cropped to where I want the matt to be) with silver foil and ink.

Thanks in advace for C&C!

I like the design, but I'd like to see the length of the backs of the b and d to be longer to distinguish them from an a and its mirror image. Also, don't connect the "zigzag to the V, but let it float like the sun/starburst. I would have loved someone to make me a monogram back when I got married! This will be great.

I think it's a pretty neat idea ! Maybe you could try and enhance it using 2 colours, like gold and silver ?

thanks so much for the input! I can difinately see where lengthing the letter stems would be an improvement.

And I love the two/tone idea, since that's how my husband designed my engagement ring. (love)

I had wanted the "V" to look like it had electrical discharge zapping off...
