Step-by-step tutorial

Cut out the bunting template and transfer it to the watercolour paper.

Download template

Cut 10 bunting pennants using the template. Now use the coloured watercolour pencils to shade in the front of each pennant in different colours. It looks best if you choose pencils form the same colour family.

Go over the shaded areas with a water brush. Make sure you go over the lighter colours first and then the darker colours.

Blend the colours while they're still wet to create lovely colour gradients. Leave everything to dry completely.

Print off the lettering template and cut out the individual letters. Then take the first letter and shade over the reverse side using the 6B Mars Lumograph pencil.

Place the template on the pennant shaded side down. Use the HB pencil to trace over the outline of the letter, so as to transfer the design onto your pennant.

Take a brush pen in a colour of your choice and colour in the letter.

Now paint the letter in watercolour using the water brush, creating lovely effects.

The colour will be more intense where you have used more colour and less intense where you have used less.

Once everything is completely dry, use the black 0.3 mm pigment liner to go over the shadows as per the template.

To create an even more effective look, use the grey brush pen to draw a thick grey line next to the black line.

Now decorate the background using the 0.3 mm pigment liner. One or two hearts or flowers will look sweet.

You can also colour the backs of the pennants by simply repeating the above steps. The lettering can be done using the pigment liner in black or in bright colours.
