Very cool. I see the heart, but also two birds kissing. I'm liking the Sami-e.
ditto what Rachel said - Susan, do you make your own ink?
Hey Amy, for Sami-e you buy a specific type of ink which is in a block form that you grind to make the ink. I get mine at: http://www.orientalartsupply.com/products/ink.cfmbut you probably can find Sumi-e kits online like at Amazon or your local art store.
