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.

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 PatinaMermaid 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!

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!

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.
