Diamine Inkvent 2022 Day 8: Jingle Berry

It’s day 8 of the Inkvent calendar already, and things are about to get bright and cheery…

Day 8’s door

Inkvent day 8’s ink is the fantastically name Diamine Jingle Berry. You really can’t get better than that for a Christmas themed ink name.

Jingle Berry is a rich fuchsia pink ink that’s labelled as a standard ink but has a good amount of outlining and some shading. It’s also called Jingle Berry, which automatically makes it the bestest of inks. I don’t make up the rules, I just follow them 😉

Diamine Jingle Berry is bound to make you smile: it’s the combination of the wonderful name with a truly joyful colour. It’s a dark pink, which means that it’s going to be legible on both white and cream papers, if legibility is what you are looking for in this ink (hint: you aren’t. You just want to have fun).

Once I saw what today’s ink was, I broke out my brand new and ridiculously pink and glittery (with some grey to tone it down) Franklin Christoph Model 03 Iterium Sedona Spa fountain pen, with the Nagahara fine cursive italic nib and embraced the delightful joy that is this ink. I’m glad that Diamine showed some restraint and didn’t try to glitterify this ink, as the result would have been too over the top and somehow also a bit banal. As it is they created an ink that I am tempted to add to my collection, even though I’m not normally a fan of pink inks.
