Slowly Sloe

Winter is coming and so are the sloes. 

I recently added sloes to the foraging series of cards. I think it ended up with eight printings but I may have lost count. Three photo-stencils were used, combined with temporary blocking techniques using a wax based screen filler.
(Sorry about the poor photos).

First two colours, pale yellow rectangle over-printed with opaque  grey.
Screen filler was used to further block the grey stencil and over print greens
