Thankfully it's a bit cooler today, this current heatwave, we find ourselves in, had totally sapped any creative enthusiasm I had. But with it being a bit cooler today, and thankfully we've even had a touch of rain with hopefully more on its way, I have had my first play with Tim's recently released Alcohol ink lift ink pad and lift ink re-inker.
I have watched his video tutorial on you tube which you can see HERE so off I went playing.
This card uses both of Tim's techniques stamping to lift and stencilling to lift.
I wont go into the details as it can all be seen in his video.
I learnt some things not to do along the way lol.
When stamping make sure you have removed all surplus lift ink before you polish up your image, Tim does tell you that, but make sure it has all gone.
Stencilling with the re-inker to not over saturate the blending foam pad as it can leak under the stencil and you end up lifting off more alcohol ink than you would want. This happened to me
and you end up wiping too much ink off. I had to cut this piece off which is why my background ended up being pieced up with Tim's Chatter washi tape to make the size up. Having said that I do quite like how the background turned out.
Tim's does show how when you lift the alcohol ink with the stamp you can then use the stamp to stamp the colour you lifted onto a piece of card, I did do this but sadly I didn't get the image fully transferred due to the fact that I used quite a solid stamp or just pure user error, the later is more probable.
I have used a chit chat sticker to finish the card off.
I think I need more practise to perfect this technique but it's been good fun playing.
Have a fabulous weekend and enjoy the cooler weather.
