More Alcohol Lifting for CAS Mix Up

Hi.  There's still time to join in at
CAS Mix Up


I'm hosting the challenge this month and I chose

I pulled out an alcohol inked background from my stash.
This one was done on Photo Paper.

I used Alcohol Lift and inked up this beautiful stamp that was gifted
to me from my dear friend Loll.

It took several tries of stamping the lift ink and rubbing with a paper towel
to get a good lifted design.  The MISTI makes this possible.

Each time I lifted ink, I stamped the color onto some Neenah cardstock.

I ended up with more than one of the Neenah pieces.

Now I need to figure out what to do with the others.

I  thought the flowers need a little contrast so I took out an
ultra fine point black Sharpie and added some dots to the centers

The Design Team is joined this month by the talented Michelle.
There's some awesome designs over there.
Hope you check us out and join in at
CAS Mix Up.

I'm going to join in at

What a stunning effect with lifting off the ink on the left and then the stamped image on the right. Such beautiful colours and one amazing card.
Yes I took awhile practising this technique Bonnie but I have loved the challenge and learnt lots....I have never tried it on photo paper so that's my next play day x

Barb Ghig said...

Such a beautiful card, Bonnie! I love the pretty colors on your AI panel, and the effects of your lift technique is stunning! I also love how you used the lifted color on your white panel and how you added texture with your embossed base!
I haven't tried photo paper yet with my AI's...thanks for the inspiration :) Barb xx

Liz said...

Very clever design, I love the effect of this technique, Bonnie. xx

Jo said...

Adorable and soft and perfect. This is truly a special card with a beautiful design. Love the punch of black here and there too. The bow and card base just adds the "je ne said quoi"! A real BEAUTY!

Cornelia (fun stamping) said...

And I was just wondering of this would work with photo paper... absolutely gorgeous!

This is so pretty, Bonnie! The alcohol inked background and the lifted image are beautiful, and I love the stamped flower with the lifted ink. It's so soft and it looks like watercolored washi tape. The black accents here and there give the flower panel a finished look and the dry embossed front panel adds so much interest in a subtle way.
Thanks so much for hosting this fun challenge this month!

LOVE this card Bonnie! Gorgeous AI colours ... so bright and summery. Looks amazing with the lifted impression and then having the lifted ink stamped on the other side. So creative and clever way to use the lifted ink! The bright colours really sing with the contrasing black elements. Wonderful card, my friend! xx

WOW Bonnie what a stunning card - love the way you have matched up the negative lifted piece with the positive image, and the black really makes it pop

I Card Everyone said...

There's a wonderful 'yin to my yang' feel to your gorgeous friendship card, Bonnie - your lifting technique made it possible, and beautiful!
Sadly I've still not added that ink to my stash!

Brenda said...

What a beautiful and unique card Bonnie! I've not tried that alcohol lift ink, but it looks like it is fun to play with. You got beautiful results it looks like! Hugs, Brenda

Susan said...

Such a good idea to have the lifted-off image stamped next to the original - you got the image perfectly lined up. Beautiful soft colours on the right - a perfect contrast to the vibrancy of the AI background on the left. It is so elegant with the black border, strip, and twine bow for contrast.

This is gorgeous, Bonnie and love that you stamped the residual ink on another piece of cardstock. These colors are just so beautiful too! And a VERY happy birthday to you today!

Brenda in IN said...

This is so pretty, Bonnie. A great way to get two images and I like the way you combined them.

Trina P. said...

Wow, this is so pretty in pink. Fabulous job lifting. Can’t wait to see what you do with the stamped off images. xx

Linda said...

This is beautiful. The colours look fab and I love how you've teamed up the alcohol ink panel with the stamped version using the lift technique .... very clever. Thank you for playing along with the Craft Stamper challenge xx

This is so elegant, Bonnie! I love how the image flows from one panel to the other. Thanks for playing along at Craft Stamper Take It Make It :)

Hi Bonnie. Your Alcohol lift card is incredibly gorgeous. I love the color palatte,a nd i love the side by side stamping of the lifted ink. Thank you for your kind comment on my blog, and thank you for this challenge. It made me try something I haven't done, and I absolutely love the technique!

BożenA said...

So beautifully you combined the intense colors with the white panel, to which you transferred the image taken from the AI area. Fantastic card, Bonnie.
