All Occasion / Snow Staircase - linocut print

My first venture into the field of block-printing! This card is based off a photograph taken by my husband, of a curved staircase covered with freshly fallen snow. As you can see, one of the inhabitants has been intrepid enough to venture outside, leaving deep imprints in the snow banks!

I made this card by tracing the photograph, and then tracing it onto the linoleum block over a sheet of carbon paper. I then carved out the image using the cutting knives. Once that was done, I rolled ink over the block, pressed it into cardstock, and voila, a new card was made!

This card measures 4 1/2" x 6 1/4".
