Valentine's Day

To raise some degree show funds some members of the course are running a Valentine's day stall so I was thinking of making some things to sell on it. I wanted something cute and fun so I began thinking about animals with Valentine related features, I didn't want anything too complicated or obscure as it's only Val day, no need to get silly! I didn't really want to design cards so I've been making mock up animals with movable joints using push pins. These are the original drawings:

and the card/movable mock ups:

and some screen captures of Illustrator tests:

Ideally I want to screen print the outlines onto appropriate coloured card and make them in sections so that they can be pieced together and reproduced quite cheaply but I need to do a bit more planning.
