Tips and Tricks

  • The pens have a double tip for fine illustrations and great brushletterings

How it is done:

  • Fold the paper in the middle to make card. Then make a sketch of the two Christmas baubles with a pencil.

  • Color the bauble with a light pink and then add a few strokes with a darker tone.
  • With a brush and water, watercolor the painted color and blur it.
  • Paint the other bauble in the same way. Then let everything dry well and use the Aqua Pen to paint letterings into the baubles.
  • Fold the second card as with the other motif and make a rough sketch for the holly branch.
  • Color the leaves with a green tone and the berries with a pink.
  • Then paint both with brush and water. Let the illustrations dry well.
  • In the meantime draw a sketch for the lettering.
  • Finally, trace the lettering with a grey Aqua Pen and add small details such as leaf structures etc.
