What you need:
Paper, portrait format, from 80 g, Faber-Castell pencil Castell 9000 HB, Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen B ink pen, in black, Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen Metallic 1.5 ink pen, in gold, silver and copper, Ruler, Eraser

Step 1

Write the text with the pencil. Be sure to use generous curves for the letters, as the lines will become thicker later.

Step 2

Now we thicken all downwards strokes. Simply draw a second line parallel to all downwards strokes with a slight spacing.

Step 3

Trace around the letters with the Pitt Artist Pens 1.5 in metallic shades. The good coverage means that no erasing is required later.

Step 4

The final step is to fill the contours of the letters with the different colours. Don’t forget the little heart! Finished!
