#797 – Alcohol Ink – Ink Lifting

Hello and welcome!

Another card using one of the alcohol ink backgrounds using a plastic sheet (see the post here). This time, I tried ink lifting the alcohol ink on the sheet.. just a bit differently! 😉

Actually, I did want to try lifting the ink using Archival ink, but while I was setting up the stamp along with the alcohol panel in my MISTI, I saw that the stickiness of the stamp had already lifted up some ink from the sheet. “Hmmm… maybe I should do that a couple of times…”.. and so I did! And this is the result –

The stamp very cleanly lifted off the ink from the sheet after a few times.. and I cleaned it off with a few mists of spirit/alcohol. By the way, no harm done to the stamp by cleaning with the alcohol.. and it cleaned pretty well too. 🙂

Anyway, I then trimmed down the panel and foam mounted it on a white card base. For the sentient, I first die cut several pieces of ‘HELLO’ using Lawn Fawn Quinn’s ABCs, then after stacking them, I heat embossed them in silver. To accompany this, I stamped the ‘Beautiful’ from the same stamp set, Ellen Hutson Mondo Sakura, fussy cut it and adhered it beside the hello. I then added quite a few silver and white gemstones on the flower centers.

One thing that I did note – the sheet is a bit prone to any harsh influence. I think I had scratched my nail on one side, and that took off the ink! Of course, just rubbing or placing it on anything else, or even adhesive to add those embellishments didn’t affect it. Just a note of warning to anyone who plans to use it! 🙂

So, now, I am joining the following challenges with this card –

#792 – Stamping on Alcohol Inked Background

Hello! I made a card from one of the sheets with alcohol ink applied – I had written a post on it some time ago. This is one of the backgrounds I had made then, but hadn’t used.

I adhered it to a piece of a light yellow card base, trimmed it and stamped the image from Ellen Hutson Mondo Sakura using Archival black ink. Actually, my initial idea had been to use the ink to remove the alcohol ink. But that resulted in the image being so invisible, that I decided to do the reverse and stamped it in black ink.

Since I was using my MISTI, I stamped the image once again on a light yellow card base. I also stamped the sentiments, from the same stamp set. I then trimmed the card base and also foam mounted the alcohol ink panel on top. Finally proceeded to add some multi colored gemstones for embellishing.
