New Beginnings

Noon Moon is back in business thanks to Brett's request for some custom greeting cards to send to his Murcal customers this month. This is the first time I'm using text in a print, and the first time I'm using more than one plate (3 total) to make up the print. The center greeting and the company name are their own plates so that we have the option to change up the design in the future. I bought a mini Speedball soft rubber brayer so that I don't make a mess with my larger brayer inking up the smaller blocks. It's nice to finally have a second brayer! I wash them frequently when I take breaks or switch colors so having 2 in rotation keeps me moving.
Stay tuned for a new Valentine's Day-inspired print that I'm carving tonight- Lovebirds!
