A Valentine's Day craft for your special valentine!
Draw a circle with a pencil using paper circle stencils (a compass may damage the paper). Consequently, use a somewhat stronger paper for drawing on and cutting out. Alternatively, you can also use an appropriately sized glass as a stencil.
Gently draw your lettering using a pencil. You can divide up the available space well in this way.
Use a Pitt Artist Pen® or a different felt-tip pen in a lighter tone and draw your lettering on the gift-tag word by word.
Take your time doing this. Use more pressure to create thicker lines and less pressure to keep the lines thin, thus creating a beautiful writing style. To get that light-to-dark-effect add more layers of the lighter color and blend it out.
Your gift tag is now complete.
Sketch the rose petals using a watercolor marker in different rose tones.
Then use a fine brush and a bit of water to give the petals a natural look. This effect will bring the rose petals to life. Let it dry properly.
Now use our Albrecht Dürer® Watercolor Markers in two or three different green tones to draw the flower stems and the leaves.
Then use a fine brush and a little water to mix the different tones. This effect will bring the branch and leaves to life. Let it dry well again.
By using a Pitt Artist Pen, a watercolor marker or any other felt-tip pen, you can now add a few green points to give your tag the finishing touch.
You can use a little clothespin to attach the tag to your gift.
