Calligraphy computerized

All this by lettering just one word!
After much experimentation,
I inserted the 3 images below to a Microsoft word doc, created transparent edges, layered them, printed a copy, then scanned it to be able to add it to the blog.

I lettered the original SOAR using Walnut Ink in a 3/8" Techniquill pen, then dropped in the green Dr.Martin's Luminescent Acrylic Ink. When dry I used a metallic green gel pen to doodle around the edges.

The following are playing with it on the computer in the Nero Photosnap Image Viewer program.

Right: Emboss,
Find Edges

Above: Invert Colors, Remove red, Water Effect
Below: Invert Colors, Kaleidoscope
