Hey friends! I have a card to share today using alcohol inks and alcohol lift ink.
Alcohol lift ink is fun because it does exactly that: lift the ink. This is an alcohol ink background I had laying around so unfortunately I don’t know the exact colors.
I used the Heart Mandala background stamp from Simon Says Stamp for this project. I inked it up with alcohol lift ink and stamped down onto my alcohol inked background. After lifting up the stamp, I dabbed the stamped area with a paper towel and then rubbed over to remove all of the excess ink.
I’m left with a gorgeous ghosting effect.
I did this process twice on the inked background. The second time, I don’t think I removed all of the excess ink so when I rubbed over it with the paper towel, it sort of smeared but I think it looks amazing!
Now the ink that the stamp picked up from the background – we can use that!
Put a piece of cardstock down and stamp. This gives you a 2-for-1. I didn’t use that in a card today but definitely saving it!
I trimmed the panel down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and added to a white card base.
I finished this off with the Friend word die layered together 3 times for dimension. The top layer is from the Simon Says Stamp Matte Silver Mirror cardstock and it’s soooo gorgeous! I die cut the shadow layer from a vellum and added to the front of the card.
I love the reverse sentiment strips from Simon Says Stamp so I found one in my stash that fit with my die cut word and added it with foam squares.
So much fun!
