My gothic valentine

Printed in time for Valentine's but not posted as I've been away, and they weren't dry.  These are some of the results of the first attempt at printing the card collagraphs I made from the laser cut scraps.  Not at all my usual style, but the designs were shaped by the February themed project and the shapes that I had, they remind me of bookplates or ornamental type.  These were done simply by adding ink with a roller and printing them in the relief press, tomorrow I'm going to choose some papers to try and get some finished prints for the project, and maybe try my hand at intaglio.

For those who prefer a more cheery valentine how about this card I made (and sent for a birthday) from more laser offcuts.
