Valentine prints!

I've had a print Gocco for a couple of years now, but rarely use it because the screens and the bulbs are expensive and have to be ordered. But I decided it was time to make some Valentine prints, so here it is! I also did some in red, but I think the pink looks better. They're 4x6 on acid-free cardstock and are available for $5 in my Etsy shop. Signed and dated on the back. The perfect way to show someone you love them all year round. I posted this on Craftster, and most people that replied said they would love it as a card. But my thoughts are that cards often get thrown away. Whereas a print is more considered a work of art. Though cards can be considered art too! So I don't know. I'm not making these into cards. These are meant to be given as small, affordable gifts that can be framed and hung on a wall.
In other news, my show in Lafayette went pretty well. I sold 3 pieces, which is great. I will put most of that work into my solo show at Boxcar Books, which opens February 6th.
