The rough background on this picture was printed first, then the butterfly shape was printed on top. I used lino and waterbased ink. White ink was painted on top of the butterfly shape, then I carefully drew around it with black ink, making the buttefly stand out against the darker background. Gold ink was also added to the wings, giving them a soft shimmer. This is one of two small prints using the same lino butterfly design.
