Alcohol Lift-Ink ~ Big Sexy Leaves ~ Power Poppy


Happy Friday y'all!!!  It's that time of week again.  Have you tried the new Alcohol Lift-Ink by Ranger yet?  I purchased it awhile back and haven't had the chance to try it out until yesterday.  And oh my is it fun!!!  It's magical!

These two cards are super CAS, but nothing about creating them was.  I have never used Yupo cardstock before, or Alcohol Lift-Ink.  And I haven't used my Alcohol inks in probably a decade.  So, I had to experiment first.  To learn how to use Yupo and the new Alcohol Lift-Ink, I watched Tim Holtz's video tutorial found HERE.  It's full of useful information!!

After seeing this magical ink, I knew Power Poppy's Big Sexy Leaves Background stamp would work beautifully with this technique!!  And since I am SO READY FOR FALL, I started by creating an inky background with Fall colors.  I used up my whole pack of Yupo and have some pieces that mixed the blues/greens along with the Fall colors and I love the mix, but I didn't let things dry properly (learning curve), so I ended up using my monochromatic pieces.  I plan to try my hand at mixing colors again though.  The leaf and butterfly were diecut from a couple of the other practice pieces.

Now, I realize there are a few of you crazy people that are still trying to hold on to summer, so I included a summery palette too.  I love how versatile this Big Sexy Leaves background stamp is.

The sentiment is from the Power Poppy set Dynamic Duos: Peonies and Tulips.  I wanted a bold script so it would pop over the busy background.



That's it for my projects today, but there are a lot more projects for you to be inspired by.  Check out what the following Bloomies have to share today:

What a great effect with this stamp Tosh, and it gives it such different looks depending on the tones of the colours you used. Very snazzy!

Wow, Tosh! What a fabulous set of cards! I watched the Tim Holtz video and was shocked at how you could create the amazing backgrounds and then lift the ink off...and also use that on another project. That is amazing. I love how you've used these Big Sexy Leaves and love the classy frame. It's amazing how the colors change the mood, and I love the sentiment you used along with the sweet dies using some of the Yupo paper you had left. (Giggled when I heard Tim pronounce Yupo. I didn't know it sounded like that. I've been thinking to myself "UP" instead of YOU...haha!) Thanks for sharing these amazing cards...I love them! Hugs and love! xoxo
