Muted Color Border Award

Once the color palette was chosen for this award, and the layout was carefully plotted, I used a technique of adding drops of color to the pen with a tiny brush each time it began to run low of paint.   This allows the colors to blend in the pen and create a smooth transition of color within words.

The thin lines on the border are created with a ruling pen, and the inner border line of color is painted with a tiny brush using the same colors as were used in the lettering, just further watered down.
