INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROJECT

1. Create a base for your lettered design: Using your Tombow Dual Brush Pen in #800 鈥 Baby Pink, letter the word 鈥楽leigh鈥 in the middle of your card. This will create a base for your lettered design. Remember to use heavy pressure on your downstrokes and light pressure on your upstrokes.
