Paisley printing

I carved one of my paisley designs onto Ezy-Carve printing block.  It was harder than I expected to get fine detail but then I haven't practiced on this for ages.  I did print it and was reasonably pleased for a first attempt.  I put in the texture lines for, well, texture.  As you can see from the shape, I didn't have a whole piece of block.

  1. That's come out so well. I really like the texture lines, they draw the eye in to the design.

  2. Thanks - before I have always tried hard to avoid texture lines, just wanting the image, but they do add to it.

  3. Oh I do love printmaking! Wonder how this would go on fabric - maybe with your stitching detail on the top?....
