Alcohol Lift-Ink Technique + Simon’s October Card Kit
Hello friends! Have you tried out Ranger and Tim Holtz’s Alcohol Lift-Ink? If you haven’t then you will want to check out the Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit, Sketched Flowers! Because this gorgeous, Fall inspired kit has not only 3 beautiful Alcohol Ink bottles included, but also a ful-sized Alcohol-Lift Ink pad!
Today I am using this unique ink pad to create a set of simple and elegant cards. These cards also feature the large, Sketched Flowers stamp set that is also in your kit box!
I really adore the large floral arrangement in the Sketched Flowers stamp set; it is literally gigantic! The florals cover any portion of your card perfectly, and in each of the cards I created today, you can see how I stamped the flower cluster in many different orientations.
The Alcohol Lift-Ink pad is designed to specifically be used with your stamps and alcohol inks. The formulation of the ink in this pad is safe to use with both rubber and clear stamps. As the name suggests, the ink literally “lifts” the alcohol ink from your Yupo paper and leaves you with a ghosted image that is simply beautiful!
You may notice that some of these backgrounds have flecks of gold foil on them! The gorgeous foils are from Gina K. Designs and Thermoweb; and the best part? There is a special assortment of Fall-inspired Fancy Foils in the kit too!
In the video above, I’ll walk you through how I created these Alcohol Lift-Ink cards, and share some tips I find helpful when working with this ink (plus how to add the foil to your backgrounds!).
I love the simple yet classy look of these cards. With their organic mix of colors, sketched florals and clean build, have a very artsy feel to them. The way the ink creates such a defined, crisp impression is a testament to how amazing this ink is. Never before could we achieve this kind of effect at this beautiful of a level!
I hope that today’s video has inspired your creativity using the Sketched Flowers kit and that you will try this technique on your own! Thank you SO much for visiting with me; I will be back again very soon with new inspiration for you!
