More Butterflies

I have been printing more butterfly linocut fat quarters for my shop. I thought that you might like to see some pictures of the process. Once my fabric is prewashed and ironed and ready to go, I roll my ink with a brayer.

I then apply it evenly to my block.

I then press the block down firmly for a count of five and lift it carefully straight up while holding the material down.

And I repeat these steps over and over again until my fat quarter is complete.

I printed a second version in hot pink as well!
