 Hi There Crafty Friends

I have something a little different for you today.Playing with Alcohol Inks, and Alcohol lift Ink pad. I am not an expert and if you never done this before, I would advise you check out some videos on you tube from Tim Holtz, (The Ranger King).

Firstly make up your alcohol panel, using your alcohol inks and  yupo paper. Again their are lots of video's on you tube concerning this.

I decided to do mine in rainbow order.  


 I let this dry, then I placed it into my Misti. I placed my background stamp and used the special Alcohol Lift Ink pad to ink up the stamp. I then stamp down on to my yupo panel, Lifted this and removed the yupo  panel and put in my Neenah cardstock. I stamped down to transfer the ink that had been collected on the stamp to my cardstock. I did this technique a few times to build up the ink transferred. Then gentle I dabbed the yupo panel, with a piece of paper towel to encourage more ink to lift. Once this was clear on the paper towel,I gently rubbed my panel to reveal more of the image.   



As you can see its amazing how it transfers giving you two backgrounds.






Once I left these to settle for a while I cut them to different sizes and mounted them to card blanks.

I then started to embellish them with the various dies I have listed and sequins.I used the Hexagon die and added it to the happy birthday die. even thought they are from different company's they work together.


I hope you enjoyed something out of my comfort zone today. 

Happy Stamping
