Alcohol Lift - Ink Technique | New Concord & 9th stamps and dies


Hello Everyone! I've been waiting to share a card using the Alcohol Lift ink for almost a month. I tried it out once before and didn't get very good results so I've been doing some research and watching Tim Holtz's videos on it. So in this video I used the Alcohol Lift Ink to transfer the ink from the Yupo paper that I used in my last video to a Neenah card panel.

Watch the video here.


I really like the results I got this time. Using one of the small leaf stamps from the Concord & 9th Thankful Leaves Turnabout stamp I hand stamped it into the lift ink pad then onto the scrap alcohol ink background. Since I was only using the background as a pallet I was able to wiggle the stamp around and really get all the alcohol ink moving then I stamped it on to the Neenah card panel. This ink is really slick so I'm using 2 hands to help steady that stamp so it does't smear. 



After I filled up my panel with the multiple color leaves I grabbed 2 of the smaller splat stamps from the Concord and 9th thanful leaves and grateful for everything stamps. Using my Distress Oxide ink in Peacock Feathers I and MFT Extreme Black ink I stamped those around the panel. Then I trimmed it down to a 3in x 4in panel. 


I die cut the Grateful Leaf die from the alcohol ink panel and also a corrugated cardboard card base that was given to me a while ago. I loved the texture that this brought to the card. The texture does get squished down a little while die cutting but I didn't think it was a big deal. I also pulled out the Concord and 9th Bitty Thank You die and used that with the Simon Says Stamp Peacock Teal cardstock. 

I also white heat embossed the secondary sentiment on black cardstock and adhered that below the Thank you die cut on top of the grateful leaf. 



I took the die cut leaf that I cut out of the Alcohol lift ink background and adhered that to the inside then I used the Grateful die and cut that out of black cardstock to attach to over the top. I love how scripty this die is and that fact that you can use just the grateful word or the for you portion. You can also cut it apart very easily to spread across your card and use separately.
