Darling Butterfly

I haven't printed any 4"x4" blocks in awhile, I have been working larger and larger. But after tearing some 12"x16" sheets I had long 4" strips that I didn't want to waste. I used some old blocks but this is a new carving and it is the cutest thing I have ever made. I wouldn't say that I normally do cute, but I like this little thing. It is delicate and pretty. The warm colors are nice as well.

I am not even close to being done printing and it is nearly 5pm so I had better get cracking. It is our four year wedding anniversary tomorrow and since we are both busy with other things we have decided to go out tonight instead. I want to get a solid hour or two of printing before going out. Here I am printing in my nice clothes. I am pretty good about not getting all messy. Of course now that I said that I will get ink all over myself and ruin this skirt.

This is lovely, Marissa... Diaphanous was the word that came to mind while viewing this...

Thank you. The lines inside were very delicately carved.
