The Uni-Ball Signo range of gel pens are so wonderfully juicy and smooth flowing. For this project, I’m using a set of 0.7mm DX pens in pastel colours.
I stamped the images in a faint colour then traced and coloured them. I hand lettered using the blue pen as well. Full details below.
- Die cut the circles with a circle die. My die makes 3.75″ wide circles.
- Stamp the image with the Desert Sand ink.
- Trace and colour the images.
TIP — The gel ink stays wet for a little while so to avoid smearing, start tracing from one side to the other to prevent crossing paths. After tracing leave it aside for 2 or 3 minutes to dry.
- Write the sentiments. Again leave it to dry.
- Add hearts and dots around the sentiments. Leave to dry.
- Stick down sequins, enamel and blue pearl dots.
- Pad around each circle with a blue ink pad. I used the Aegean Blue colour.
- Punch a hole and string a piece of twine.
