Hi everyone, Andi again bringing you my latest Monday Matchup! This week, I got to use the Monteverde DC Supershow Blue with a Monteverde Mountains of the World Black Mountain fountain pen. I love getting the chance to use new products. If you’d like to learn more about why I’m excited about this matchup, keep reading!

Today is my birthday! So, I wanted to do a drawing based on something important to me. I have always been a big fan of Julie Andrews and she and I share a birthday. Based on this fact, a quote from her and a drawing of one of her most memorable characters seemed very appropriate. I began by using the pen to draw an outline of the figure. I took a Caran d’Ache Waterbrush pen and bled the ink into the parts of the drawing that I wanted to fill in. Then I used the pen to write the quote.

I really love both this pen and ink. The feel of the pen is nice and it had a great weight to it, not too heavy, not too light. I enjoyed the very simple sleek look of the pen as well. The Monteverde ink is a rich and beautiful color. It brought my drawing to life and made it jump off the page. This duo is great for just about any writing task. There were no issues with dry time using this ink. The pen is sleek and sophisticated for work, school, or journaling on the go. It is a classic looking pen.
