Okay so I did this a couple of months ago for a swap and realized I never posted it! Roll Eyes  This was (I think) 8x10" slightly simplified version of a scene from Alice in Wonderland with Tenniel's illustration (since that was my swap partner's preference).  I sent the cut along with a print (holy crap, SO hard to do) but hopefully onyxnox is enjoying it in her crafting!

In case you're wondering, yes, it took FOREVER


Forgive the mistakes, I'm terrible at printing but I'm working on it!!

The cut itself...

Thanks everyone!

I didn't mention this though I suppose I should (since this is reproduction techniques  Roll Eyes) that the image-to-lino was done freehand.  In case that was worth mentioning.

Holy cow, RMGS, that is just *killer*!  I remember you posting a few months ago in the HPC thread about issues while carving -- but just look at this!  I'm uber-jealous.   Wink  That's such a gorgeous looking block...

Rocked, Pinned, adored.
