|The original sketch, cut down to fit on the block.|
|The image has been transferred to a Speedball linoleum block.|
|The flowers have been cut away so they will show through the white of the paper.|
|Ink on the block, rolled out and the first test prints made.|
|A close-up of the test prints.|
I always to test prints, so i have a good idea of how the ink is transferring and the best way to clean the image up. I then file away the test prints to and the original sketch to refer to later (and in case something happens to a block and I need to recreate it).
UPDATE: The cards have been printed and are for sale in my Etsy store. Check them out here.
