Printmaking Cards

My printmaking project involved cutting up cereal box cardboard in a variety of shapes and then gluing them on to another piece of cardboard… approximately 5 x 8.

I used gouache and painted the raised design on the cardboard and printed it on white card stock. After the paint dried I added black marks with my Micron black pen.
I’m happy with the results. I’ll be making more of these.

The reason I made the print was to make a birthday card for my grandson. He is a musician and he plays the guitar and composes music.

I think my grandson will like this card. 🙂
It’s always fun to see how the printed color turns out on the cut out shapes.
