Printing Xmas Block

I like the reddish brown color. I've been playing around with tapping on accent color, but I don't like how it's coming out. This may be a one-color block afterall.
I practically recarved the whole block. I have a tendency to "draw" too lightly on the board. Someday I'm going to design a block that calls for bold images. ;- j

Almost Ready to Print

Faux image -- mirror scan of the block, colorized in PaintShop. About to print and see what needs recarving. ;- j

Poking Along on the Block

Lost the weekend to holiday doings, but I'm back to work on the xmas card block today. Carve, carve, carve.

Christmas Block

Block in progress -- mirror image scan. This'll be the Schuyler House Christmas card. I put the castle on one of the mugs. And I put a sleeping cat on the hearth for the absent Kitty (who worked for Schuyler House).
