Welcome to four more Cult Pens Vinta exclusives. Known as the love potions the set consists of: two standard inks – My Heart Is (pink) and Cupid in the Sky (blue) and two shimmers – Musk Mallow (pink with gold) and Violets are Blue (blue with silver). These are the two shimmers only.

Love Potions

Swatch cards created on Bockingford rough watercolour paper. Some subtle chromo in both. A hint of shimmer too but the bleach reaction is somewhat masked due to the dramatic shimmer action.
