Linocut fabric printing flamingos

This is the start of another new obsession, I scored a load of lino from a kind soul on Jumbletown and it lay around for a while until I signed up for a fabric printing swap, so I had a go. My first try was pink flamingos. And I really like it, the flamingo body and beak is hand coloured, printed using speedball screen printing inks for fabric and printed onto some vintage fabric.

 this is the lino block that I used, I don't bother mounting them onto wood as it allows me to position more carefully if I can see where the image is, although subsequent blocks have even more of the excess lino cut away.

I made a bag out of the two types of fabric...!
