Another Alcohol Lift-Ink Test, but with ArtFoamies!

Another Alcohol Lift-Ink Test, but with ArtFoamies!

Hello wonderful crafters,

I know I know, my fourth post in a row on Alcohol Lift-Ink but I am hooked. This time I had played with rubber stamps and stencils as you have seen but I wondered, would it work with my Artfoamies. Guess what, it did! but it has to be clean. If you have paint caked on your Artfoamies it probably won’t work, but if you have some clean ones give it a go. For this play, I used my 8″ x 10″ Yupo Alcohol Ink white cardstock paper. I wanted very bright colors, so I grabbed some of my neon alcohol inks in Lemonade, Raspberry, Pool, and Gold. I blended them using the Alcohol Ink Blending Solution and added some shimmery gold accents. I first tired a butterfly Artfoamie that didn’t give a very clean print but still had a cool aged effect. Next, I tried a new circle Artfoamie and that gave a clear print and very cool transfer onto a Dylusions Media Tag.

You can see the video here: Alcohol Lift-Ink and Artfoamies Play

Check out the colors:

 

I hope these last few posts have really gotten you excited about the Alcohol Lift-Ink and wanting to give it a try. It is just such a great new technique to add a great ghosting look to your tags, cards, whatever you can think of. Now, this will be my last post for a week or two as I have some family coming into town and I am going to take some downtime to spend with them, so as always happy crafting! Stay inspired, and create art every day.

Under the Sea- Alcohol Lift Ink Mermaid Background

Under the Sea- Alcohol Lift Ink Mermaid Background

Hello, Lovelies,

Happy Saturday! I am back again with yes more Alcohol Lift-Ink because I am obsessed right now with seeing all the fabulous ways I can use this new supply. Today I bring you a fun summer themed background. I used the  5″ x 7″ Alcohol Ink Yupo paper and my new mermaid stamp to create a luscious, cool under the sea background. I’m not sure what she will bloom into yet, whether it’s a card or a tag, but at least I have the background for my stash.

This one was very easy:

  1. I used the Alcohol Ink Yupo Paper
  2. I applied several blue and purple colors of Alcohol Ink
  3. I used the Alcohol Blending Solution on a felt applicator to add more movement
  4. I used the Alcohol Iift-Ink and my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to stamp the mermaid image
  5. I then used the stamp on a distress tag to transfer the alcohol ink that lifted.

Voila! Instant card background.

You can watch my process video here: Alcohol Lift-Ink Mermaid Background

Here are some stills of the vibrant colors. Makes me want to go swimming!

Are you ready for summer! I sure am! I hope this brought you some summertime inspiration. Time to break out those alcohol inks and put then to new uses! Happy Crafting!

Friday the 13th – Alcohol Lift Ink Skull Stencil Background

Friday the 13th – Alcohol Lift Ink Skull Stencil Background

Hello folks,

I am back with a special post for Friday the 13th! I was sitting at work today thinking about the awesome new Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift Ink and about Friday the 13th, and about the cool new skull stencils I got and I couldn’t wait to get home to have a play. I got home, tucked into my studio and made a quick messy alcohol ink background on 8″ x 10″ Yupo paper then tried the Alcohol Lift Ink thru one of my new skull stencils and cool doesn’t cover it. I found my new addiction folks, but I need to do it sparingly until Ranger gets stocked back up on their fabulous alcohol inks.

First layeredrd the alcohol ink with blending solution on the background

Next, I then stamped with the Tim Holtz Newsprint stamp and the Dylusions Cobweb stamp using black Archival Ink.

Last,ly I laid down my stencils and used the felt applicator with Alcohol Lift-Ink Reinker on it to go thru the stencils to create the white areas.

…..I hear those wheels turning!!!

This will be great cut up for a nice card front and maybe some artist trading cards!

New Product: Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift-Ink Review and Play

New Product: Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift-Ink Review and Play

Hello there lovely fellow crafters.

I am so excited for my video share today for art journal Wednesday because it is a new product review. I was able to get my hands on the new Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift- Ink by Ranger before they sold out and it came in the mail last week. As you can imagine, I could hardly wait to dive in and give it a play. Today I will be sharing with you some tags that I cut out of the Ranger 8″ x 10″ Alcohol Ink Yupo paper and used for my demo/testing. I had to wait for a not too hot day as well because it is so important when you use the Ranger Alcohol Inks to make sure you are in a well-ventilated room, or you will be “extra happy” with your work when done if you catch my drift. Therefore I braved the Florida 90 degree humidity threw open my window and below is how my tags turned out.

Some key items to note:

  1. Make sure the stamps you use have been cleaned, or the residue will transfer.
  2. Give the paper a bit of drying time before stamping if in humid weather
  3. If you stamp, remember to dab with a clean paper towel a few times to reveal the image then rub
  4. If you use the Lift-Ink Reinker, you can put it on a felt alcohol ink applicator and use it thru stencils. The more you rub thru the stencil with the felt the more that will come off before you clean up with the paper towel.
  5. Lastly, have fun layering! Looks awesome with alcohol inks.

Here are the stills. The photos don’t do them justice. It is so hard to capture the lusciousness of the metallics and swirls. Amazing!

Stampfest 2018-Tim Holtz!- Craft Haul

Stampfest 2018-Tim Holtz!- Craft Haul

Wow, well what a weekend that was. This past weekend I got to go to Stampfest 2018 in Kissimmee Fl and I had so much fun. It took my hubby and me, about an hour to get there so we arrived just a few minutes after they opened which was perfect timing. It was held at a hotel in one of their conference center/ballroom type rooms. There were 25 or 26 vendors and Stampers Anonymous was there and the wonderful Tim Holtz was demoing. I was lucky enough to be there early and get a photo with him before he started demoing for the show. Let me tell you if you get a chance to go see Tim Holtz in person, take a class, go to a demo, do it. He is so funny and has such a great personality, so much fun! I will definitely be looking to see what classes he has coming up this year or next. We ended up spending about three hours at the show before it started to get a bit too crowded and booth lines got long, but I still got a great stamp haul. After the show, we puttered around Orlando a bit, went to lunch and Ikea, then headed home. Overall it was a great, overwhelming fun weekend and I can’t wait to do it again.

You can see the full VLOG about it on my youtube channel here: https://youtu.be/x3xBP16D3DU

I will also include some shots of the day for your here and some of the goodies I got. A full list of items purchased is at the bottom and there is a lot! Enjoy!
