Alcohol Lift Ink Stamping

Hello friends, thanks for visiting me today! I love playing with alcohol inks and I wanted to resurrect an older card design that I had created last September using the Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift Ink pad.

How I Made It
Alcohol Lift Ink Stamping

As the name suggests, Alcohol Lift Ink literally lifts the ink from your paper. This technique is fun, because it creates a stunning, ghosted image of your stamping. I created a background from Patina, Mermaid and a tiny amount of Citrus Alcohol Inks. I moved the colors around with blending solution and the We R Memory Keepers Airbrush tool. I used to blow air through a straw before I got this tool when trying to move the inks; the Airbrush makes everything so much easier!

Alcohol Lift Ink Stamping

Once the background was dry, I inked up Simon’s Sketched Flowers stamp set with the Alcohol Lift Ink and stamped the florals onto the paper. After stamping, I took a microfiber cloth and buffed off any excess ink from the paper. I was left with this stunning, floral arrangement ghosted into the beautiful teals!

To make things sparkle just a bit, I splattered on a few drops of Finetec silver watercolor. The silvery tones paired perfectly with the turquoise colors!

Alcohol Lift Ink Stamping

To decorate the card, I kept it simple and classy; I cut a greeting from silver foil paper using the Pretty Pink Posh, Lovely Script die and I paired that with a white embossed sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Flowers set. There are a few sequins tucked here and there around the card and everything sits on a square, white card base.

I hope this card has inspired you to try two things; 1., that you’ll give the Alcohol Lift Ink a try if you haven’t already, and 2., that you’ll try creating a card that was inspired by something you’ve already created. Sometimes its fun to go back and revisit those “oldie but goodies”!

Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me today. I will be back again very soon with more to share!

    Very pretty Nina. I have not tried alcohol inks yet much less the lift ink but I have to say I love the look you can achieve with it.
