Hello and happy Valentine's Day, friends! If you are like me and need a quick last-minute Valentine (and don't want to get out in the pouring rain, like it is here today!), Copic Marker has you covered! They have two different downloadable FREE pieces of Valentine artwork you can print off and color, with two different print color options per image as well! You can download those HERE. I chose the squirrel image because we have about 5 or 6 squirrels at any given time that are playing in the trees, woods, and creek behind our house (and ON the house) ... it is quite entertaining to watch them!
You can watch a video of the fabulous Chihiro Howe coloring the same squirrel image I have, by clicking HERE.
Here's how I colored the squirrel image:
The squirrel tails were colored with the W-series markers shown above, using long flicking strokes to create a hair-like texture.
To finish the card, I used Lemon Atyou Spica Glitter Pen for the border, flower centers, and accent dots:
To make the image into a quick card, I die cut it with Taylored Expressions Stitched Rectangle Stacklets, which can be found here or here, framed the image with TE's Lemon Meringue cardstock, then mounted it onto a Lollipop card base. I left a sentiment off the front of this card, so it could also be used for any other occasion, if needed.
Enjoy your free downloadable artwork, folks, and Happy Valentine's Day!
