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!!!

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!
