My weekend linocut project!

This weekend I worked on a lino-cut project for some little thank you cards! Thank you cards don't have to be big- sometimes smaller ones are great for little notes and a personalized one with a hand-printed lino-cut can be a lovely way to say thanks. I haven't done a lino-cut in years- my memories of linocuts are from grade 9 art class where the lino was so stiff you would have to put so much pressure and effort into carving it and invariably you would stab yourself with the carving tool! The new 'speedball' soft carving plates are really easy and quick to carve. In no time I had my thank you cards finished and printed off!
