Christmas tree made with rubber printing blockA dodgy Christmas tree, cut in a Speedball printing block. Fun but there is so much to cut away - painting is easier. I originally thought I would be able to register the block on the cards and have another block with ornaments etc - obviously didn't think it through - so I ended up using marker pens and stickers to finish them. Some of the stickers are covering accidents with the ink - the printing block is kind of floppy so it's quite hard to avoid getting ink where you didn't want it. Anyway they have a kind of chunky handmade look that I like.
