Hi Everyone, and welcome back! Today I’m on the Whimsy Stamps’ Blog sharing this Spooky Night card using an alcohol ink lift and transfer technique. This was one of those, “Oops! Well let’s see where this goes,” cards that actually worked in the end.
Technique: Alcohol Lift-Ink and transfer stamp
I began by creating an alcohol ink background on Yupo paper, and then tried to lift the ink with Ranger Alcohol Lift-Ink, but I didn’t like the results. So I transferred the lifted ink image by stamping it onto white Neenah cardstock, and that is how the magic happened! Oh my! I think this Web Background Stamp looks so pretty. Look at those blues, greens, and purples. What do you think?
Next I stamped the tree branches and crows from Attempted Murder, stamped the little bats from Howling Night, and lightly blended Hickory Smoke and Black Soot Distress Inks around the panel. Then I added the distressed idea-ology “Beware” token (See a step-by-step tutorial HERE), wrapped black twine, and sentiments from the You’re My Boo stamp set. Finally, I layered with purple and black cardstock onto a black card base.
So, what do you think? I am obsessed with alcohol inks right now. Have you tried the new Alcohol Lift-Ink? I can’t wait to see what you create! Love and crafty hugs!
