I finished my 20+ prints for Nicci's Fine Art Valentine project. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. It is a simple design, but I used a 4-color reduction printing technique which is semi-complicated. I started by printing the background all light green. Then I cut away the things on my block that I wanted to stay light green and printed with dark green. Then I cut away the parts that I wanted to stay dark green and printed pink. Then I cut away what I wanted to stay pink, and finally printed red on top. It takes a lot of careful lining up, and I'll never be able to make any more, since I cut away parts of the design as I go. Anyway, it is nice to check one more thing off the to-do list! And - I'm actually feeling like I might be getting better from my cold/flu extravaganza, so that is good news!
