Adding colour to the wings

I have finally found the time to print the second layer on my butterfly print. I have cut out some more of the lino to give the wings better definition and add more detailed structure.

  

I went for a peach colour, with quite a lot of white as a base for the ink. This has helped to limit the amount of the background yellow that shows through. (With the two colours so close, there was a risk they would just blur into each other).

Now to cut again.
