The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

My first attempt at Gocco printing didn't go as well as I had planned. I tried to save supplies by using the same screen for the black and white AND colour prints, making positioning the card very difficult as you can see below (L-R: good to bad to worse)...


The black and white only prints were much more successful.


I also tried black and white and red and white sheep note cards. Unfortunately the far left sheep lost part of his nose in the printing process.


In other news...

Mr. Pigeon 015 is now for sale on Etsy.


Mr. Pigeon 016 arrived safely in London, is now called Bubble and aspires to become a tank top model!

Hello! I love your cards and the pigeon! i went to see about buying it but don't have paypal or secure access to internet at home - only at work - I sent an email to your etsy account! I wondered if there were some arrangement we could come to - either to buy this pigeon on Monday when I go back to work or to wait for the next one to fly the nest!!

We all love the sheep (my girls are looking with me). Did I dream it or did you once have the pigeon pattern for sale? I'd love to buy a copy ...

We both loved the cacti cards and the sheep look great too. Bubble is having his first tank top knitted as we speak!

Pigeon no 15 is now happily ensconced in his new home!! I think I'll need to get on with the tank top knitting otherwise he might get jealous!! His name is Poop!!

the third cactus, with the outline and the colour separated is the best one. believe me, there's nothing duller than perfection ;-) Great work! (love the pigeon with the beer jar)
