I am slightly obsessed with my Gocco, and so last night I decided to play with it some more.

After my simple first attempt and test prints , I thought I'd try something a little more girly and detailed this time.

So after much umming and ahhing, I opted for this floral print to go on some grey note cards with matching envelopes. The card looks white in the pics, but trust me, it is grey)

They are not perfect, but all in all I am quite pleased with them. I had a few issues with the ink blotting at the edges of the card, but oh well. It's all trial an error, and a learning curve. As they say practice makes perfect.

Need to get more bulbs and screens.

Did I mention the rather scary warning that features on the side of the bulb packet?... Something about the bulbs containing chemicals that may cause cancer, reproductive harm and birth defects. Eeeek! That can't be good at all.

Gocco-ing Mad

The severe lack of posting has been due to the fact that I am obsessed with my Gocco PG-11 printer.
Shopping for clothes and other stuff has now been replaced by wanting and craving Gocco accessories and ink. I want it all!

Anyhoo... just to show you I haven't been sitting on my laurels here is my handy work.

*Plain greeting cards

*Splodge card

As you can see, I only did one design - a fountain pen - as my tester. As it turned out quite well (I think), my mind is now brimming with ideas.

Have a look at all the other Gocco-ers out there and their wonderful creations.

I'm off to Gocco some more.
