Return of the Cockatoo.

 I started off with some new ink to print the cockatoo again, but in the end I found that it wasn't just the ink that was a problem, the paper was too. It was too lumpy and bumpy, and I ended up getting a better result with smooth card. I've cheated and removed the lino carving marks before up loading the scan.
 Here I've printed it over a piece of card that I previously printed digitally with variations of a bunch of gum leaves that I had pressed. The marks of the lino carving show up here and don't look so good.
Just for fun I inverted the image and quite like the result. Plenty of fun fiddling to indulge in here!
