Coffee filter flowers, verse and bird carve

Another take on the coffee filter paper...
Ironed the filter flat, inked it with a background stamp.
Cut spiral flowers and leaves from it. Also used cashmere dryer lint for 
the nest under the bird!  Branch is watercolor crayon.

New carving.....New cards

 Here is a carving I made from a sculpture located in
Nikko, Japan. It is printed with Brilliance
Pearlescent Chocolate Ink, on unbleached
coffee filters. That paper is interesting to print on.

 Here is my bunny carving, also using one of ggdesigns
pussy willow stamps. Embossed a strip of paper 
using Zing metallic finish embossing powder, then 
cut the top edge into grass strips and glued 
down to bottom edge.Top of card is shaded using 
good old fashioned colored pencils.

 Recent bird carving, verse carve.
Shaded with colored pencils.

 Another version!

Here is a card using one of my favorite  ggdesign
images, her poppy.It is a two piece carving.

Fish , Verse carvings

Card made with fish and verse carvings I've done 
recently. The 'sea weed' was done using dog food bag
'paper' I made using alcohol inks. Gives a nice 
shimmer to the sea weed.
