I Love This Paper!

I’m such a paper geek!

I love the look and feel of this 90# Stonehenge printmaking paper. The color is called “Kraft”. Its such a nice warm brown.

I started carving on this new piece a few days ago. I’ll use the color of the paper for the main color of the pods so I’ll cut that away first.

Then I used that plate to print a darker shade of brown to represent the shadows of the pods. This whole design has to be printed in stages. I hope it turns out the way I want it to. The picture doesn’t show the textures and embossment very well, but so far so good…on to carving the next color…
