A woodcut is one of the oldest forms of printmaking in which negative space is carved out of wood to form whatever design the artist wants. This is a cheaper version of a woodcut which is made of poster board. I think there has been some confusion on the definition of a woodcut based on what's been submitted into the woodcut section, so I thought I should submit a picture of an actual woodcut and then another of a cheaper way to make one (this picture). The finished product that accompanies this one is called Bleeding Diamond-hearts, which should be on my work page.

Poster board!?! You clearly pulled this off! I enjoyed this and was thinking along the lines of a 'bleding' theme (then the description reassured me)
