Woodblock Card "Design K"


When I saw this post over at Yardage Design I realised the limitless opportunites to create custom prints using something I have easy access to - woodblock letters!


I do intend to do some fabric work, but I'm much happier experiementing with colours and designs on card...


I decided to make this initial design into a simple card for a friend's birthday...


I adore the textures created thanks to the combination of the woodblock itself and my slightly messy brushstrokes when applying the paint!


Every single impression is unique, stunning, and they just work together so well! I love that they make a bold, statement print, and it is so versatile, too.


Expect many more to come ;)

  2. Stunningly simple but so effective Helen - love those brush strokes...I think I'd have tried to make the colour even, knowing me - but it is so much more interesting with the individual variations.
    Hope to see many more letter designs and patterns.
