* pine cards

Posted on May 30th, 2006 by maitreya. Filed under Gocco/L Letterpress.


These are for the Gocco swap organized by head full of pixies. Pine needles, printed with 2 screens, each of which I screwed up in a different way. Together, though, they are surprisingly good. This was my first foray into using multiple screens, and my first time mixing custom colors. You would think with all this ink, I could find a color to use, but you would be wrong. It’s a silvery-green on top of silver on grey card stock. Each one is different, and the scan doesn’t do them justice.

    I used to have gocco when I was little but forgot
    about it all.
    It is very pretty pine you made. I like a bit of green there.

    Those are so neat – I really love the layering. And I second Blair – you have definitely awakened my Gocco envy too.

    I love when mistakes/screwups turn out to be “surprisingly good” ! These are so beautifully simple and simply beautiful. I’d love to get the gocco but worried about not being able to get supplies in the near future…do you think its going to be a problem?
