A little space boy and his alien friend - in lino at last, it's what we've been waiting for :)
Cutting tentacles out of lino is fun, I must attempt a creature with more tentacles than this....
I have been busy carving out zig-zags which is exactly my idea of fun....it has resulted in this rather shiny golden monkey puzzle tree which you can find living just here on Etsy
With copper ink rolled out for another project I had to have a little play around and these birds were very keen to be printed in copper - how could I say no?
Lots of birds feathers have a beautiful sheen to them, often almost metallic so it seems like the right ink to use...
Now I want to try all the other lino blocks I have in 'shiny' too!
