Junk Mail Art - Layer Three - Block Printing - Part 1

 Continuing on with a little demonstration of my process for turning junk mail into art postcards, I am preparing to add a block print to these two postcards.  Both began as a piece of junk mail, had gesso applied with a putty knife.  One was printed with bubble wrap and the other was painted with blue and yellow paint using a putty knife and also printed with circles.  Next, I plan to add a block print and am going to use the one below.  I've not yet used this printing block on any of my postcards.
This printing block was carved several years ago and sits in a box with about 75 others in my collection of hand carved printing blocks.
