Berries and Birds - Decal print on a wooden block

I've recently added Berries and Birds as a decal printed wooden block to my Folksy Shop.   It features my design of two birds playing amongst blue and purple swirls in a forest.

A lovely tactile object and really pleased with the results and becoming quite obsessed with making them! Originally a hand pulled screen print A3 in size.

My artwork is mounted onto a block of square spruce wood letting the natural variants of the wood appear through my design  - making each block unique!

 Based on my original screen print I have reproduced the artwork onto decal paper and then carefully placed this onto a hand sanded wooden block

For extra protection the artwork has a coat of varnish - The sides remain natural.  Each block has a pre-drilled hole in the back (diameter 5mm) ready to hang off a nail on your wall... 

Block dimensions: W 93mm, H 93mm, D 18mm

Inspired by my garden, the surrounding parks where I live and of course the birds.

Here it is in the box I made for it!
