I got that effect once, when two prints had stuck together and I pulled them apart. lol. Your image is wonderful.

I suggest that you could also apply this to make something like coral. It's a good work, but I don't think it comes out as strong as a tree.

Is it also possible to do one colour and then another after?

I can see the look of coral in this.

Adding one color and then another is very possible. To do so the first color that has been applied must be dry then the printing process can be repeated for the next color.

Would you mind me asking , How did you gey the tree branches to that effect?

Thank you!

The branches were made by applying a dab of paint on the painting surface and pressing a piece of paper on top. After pressing, I then pulled the paper away from the painting surface making sure I was pulling from the top edge of the image. For example, if I pulled the paper up from one of the side edges, the branches would be "growing" sideways. If I pulled from the bottom edge, the branches would look more like roots.
Note, the amount of paint will have to be experimented with to get the "just right" look you want.
Good luck!
