Wood block print - a recycled game

This piece of pink silky oak got repurposed into a printing block. Before launching onto fabric, it is being tested on cartridge paper.  Gentle rubbing, a brayer and then the third was burnished with a soup spoon. The ghost print in the top left corner was a pleasant surprise. Then it was time to empty the brayer across the cutting board, add some depth and shadows and create the final print. And last but not least, the splash of red ... just because.
