I think this goes here (rather than 'other reproduction techniques') because while these do employ printmaking they also employ collage, and I think they are more art than a 'reproduction technique'). {I wish that board were called "printmaking, etc." but oh, well...}
(Hey, sweets4ever, feel free to correct me if I've placed this in the wrong place.  Smiley )

Anyway, without further ado, I carved a lino block with a unicorn and many umbrellas and printed it on a variety of Japanese papers (cream kozo, and patterned chiyogami and katazomi-shi papers) and am making a series of multimedia pieces:










Hope you like them Smiley

It's hard to pick a favorite.  I love all the colors.  And your unicorn definitely stands out.

This is awesome! I think its cool that this post is here, you did do some lino carving and original printing, thats stuff is a pain to do and you did a good job. Wink I love the orange umbrella!

unlike using watercolor masking rubber to trace and toss watercolor paint over  a sheet of paper "watercolor stencil",that's kinda a reproduction technique in my opinion lol.

Thanks!
How to categorize things isn't always straightforward. Wink I also printed this block on fabric... I don't know what that would be.
