I admire your prints, they're really lovely  :3    By the way, I tried to understand, how you make several layers of colour on prints, but couldn't.  Could you tell, please, where I can read about this technique?

Nae, thank you for your feedback! There are couple ways of doing multiple layers on "relief print". What I usually do is I carve out a board a little, print with the lightest color, clean the board and do some additional carving and print, and finally finish up the carving and print with the darkest color (usually the line work). This is called reductive relief printing since you keep removing more from one board.

There is also a way of using multiple boards to carve for each colors. If you google "ukiyoe" (japanese traditional wood block printing) you can get a better idea.

Let me know if you have any more questions I'd love to help.
