2016 Topic #9 Mono Printing {Challenge}

O my this will be the quickest post ever!
Lino printing fun to join the PaperArtsy Challenge HERE.

I'll edit and add details later!

O my that was close....just 3 minutes to spare for the deadline but linked it was LOL.

So mono printing, how exciting I thought, I used to love lino printing when I was at school, so I purchased a cheap kit with the bits and bobs and eventually last night gt round to carving.

I really wasn't sure what I wanted to do, so thought I would keep it simple and make a background to a card.

I wasn't sure the best way to make it multi-coloured, co cut my lino in half to make two so I could layer up.

I then had a play around with colours, I was gutted as I couldn't get my fresco paints to work as they just dried as soon as applied to the lino. I didn't think about mixing with anything till after the event LOL so opted for ink pads but the purple was just too strong.

As the background was quite busy I needed something bold to sit on it and came accross my ELB13 stamp set, perfect.

SO a nice simple card and these are the two lino blocks, I really enjoyed this.

Be back soon!....Thanks for stopping by and leave a message if you fancy!
Happy Craftin
