Mount Board Hearts

A friend of mine recently gave me a lovely great big bag of mount board off cuts. Too small to use in framing and mounting, but far too good to through away. So i decided to print these small hearts on the card- with string attached, they are ideal to hang up as they are, no frame needed !

Thanks Hannah : ) as soon as Karin brought me the board, my mind was racing with ideas! It's to reuse materials that otherwise would be thrown away. Amanda x

Absolutely beautiful! What kind of ink do you use in the prints?

Thank you : ) Hi Lulu, i always use oil based relief printing inks, it's pain to use as it gets very sticky and messy and takes an age to dry (days), but i think it produces the best results and lovely rich colours. just wish i has a little helper to do the clearing up!: D

Lovely idea - I would have been overjoyed with a gift of offcuts like that too - so many bits to play with :)
Gorgeous print and beautiful colours.
