As you know POSCA has launched seven sophisticated new 5M markers in classic, rich deep colours. So, seeing as it’s that time of year we thought we’d show you how to make a Valentine’s Greeting using the new POSCA Deep colours.
This super easy card-making project is super easy to follow. In fact, it’s simply a colouring in exercise as we have provided you with an illustration temple to download, trace and transfer.
Featuring deep, delicious hues of English Green, Ochre, Prussian Blue, Raspberry, Cacao Brown, Deep Grey and Ruby Red, these new POSCA Deep Colours are showcased in an eight-piece pack with an Ivory POSCA to further complement the deeper, more classic quality of this rich new palette.
This plush new POSCA paint marker suite will allow artists and crafters to create beautiful work in a vibrant new palette – so why not give them a whirl in this Valentine’s greeting card project.
