Step-by-step tutorial

Print off the templates, cut out your desired word and shade over the back of the paper with a soft pencil. Now place the template on the paper (SnapPap) with the lettering upwards. For this project, the dimensions of your paper should be about 35 cm x 10 cm.
Then trace over all the outlines of the lettering with the HB pencil, transferring the design to the paper.

Go over all the outlines of the lettering with the pigment liner 1.2 and fill in.

Tip: The pigment liner is available in a line width of 0.05 for delicate lettering.

Now shade around the lettering with a light green watercolour pencil (shade used here: olive).

Then go over the light green colour with a water brush (a paintbrush and water will also work, of course). The water will create a lovely soft look.
Before you do anything else, leave everything to dry completely.

To create a vintage look, crumple the paper slightly once it has dried, and then smooth it out again.

Finally cut a little triangle out of each end.

Position the lettering centrally in the embroidery hoop and clamp it. Decorate your embroidery hoop with ribbons, flowers and other pretty features.

Tip: Use superglue, it holds for a particularly long time.
