Ever since Big Nutbrown Hare told Little Nutbrown Hare “I love you right up to the moon and back,*” we have been using the phrase with our loved ones to express how much we love one another. I originally designed, cut and printed “Love You to the Moon and Back” as my annual Valentine print for my boyfriend. I had so many compliments (and requests for prints) that I decided to print more and make them available for purchase. This print makes a great gift for your significant other, child or parent.
“Love You to the Moon and Back” is printed in a dark midnight blue and the heart is hand tinted with red acrylic paint. This linoleum block print was drawn, cut, inked and printed by hand in my studio. Due to hand printing no two prints will be exactly alike. Ink coverage may vary slightly from print to print; however, this adds to the originality of each print.
