Yay, I finished printing up my Christmas cards & made some bonus tree hangers too!

My aim this year was 'simple but effective' and I was inspired by both old prints in books and my visiting Robin Redbreast in the garden!

The tree hangers are white sheets cut up, printed on and stitched with a puffy filling and some vanilla beads so they smell yummy!



Hope you like!

I love the lino block!  I have some of the pink stuff, maybe I'll do this as well.  I was going to hand paint them this weekend, but didn't have the time.  I'll start thinking of ideas and sketching!

Yeah, it turned out that I liked the lino as much as the print!! And it was pretty quick to do once the lino block was made.

I've got some air dry clay around here somewhere so I think I'll try to make a tile of the Robin, I know it works well with plaster - but I haven't got any!

I think then I might even frame the lino up...!

You know, I have that mini-mite dremel that the hardware stores sell around halloween for carving pumpkins.  I bet it would make clearing out those large spaces in the block a breeze, though I love the 'swirls' you worked into yours.  That way, if ink does manage to get there, it at least looks like part of a design.  Very neat.

That sounds like a good tool, might have to look that one up - thanks! I am a bit odd in that I don't like 'clean' prints, I like them to look a bit, erm, rustic I guess is the word. I've just finished a snowman one and managed to make the cut away bits look like blizzardy snow, yay!
