Hello hello!

I bought a print gocco machine two years ago...and only JUST used it! How mad?! I was a bit scared - what with the expensive screens and lightbulbs, I just knew I'd stuff up. But I didn't! And it was painfully easy and do-able.
So I printed up a tonne of cards using a "Merry Christmas" design I doodled up one night while watching Come Dine With Me (best show ever!)


I used kraft brown cardstock and some white too (not shown here)

I was umm-ing and ahh-ing over whether to print in black or in colour but stuck with black so I could fill in the gaps with colours like below! I think the colour will look better on the white cardstock where the colours cand stand out more Smiley

Hope you like!

Let's stick to regular Monopoly. The game is crazy enough as it is; how can an iron be a landlord?

I just had to check out this post, I recognized the Gocco from the thumbnail! Wink I am a big Gocco fan, but I know what you mean about the expensive supplies. I made my Christmas cards on my Gocco this year as well, and have only used it for one other project!

In any case, your cards are super cute! I love the fun lettering you chose, and the colours make it super duper extra awesome! Cheesy

ohh thanks Graciechan! means all the more coming from a fellow Totoro fan Cheesy

Print Gocco is a small little screen printing machine. It's pretty small but so fun and easy to use!
It uses old fashioned one-use lightbulbs that transfer your design (which has to be photocopied for the carbon or something...) onto the screen which you then ink up and use over and over again!
It's smaller than normal screen printing I think, but to me it's a lot simpler and less messy.
I'm terrible at explaining things Smiley but here is a good link!
