Alcohol Lift

My first attempt using the Alcohol Lift, definitely need more practice!

I used the Glorious Bouquet  as my stamp and I did like the effect even though I felt the 'lifted' image was pale and this Yupo piece didn't have a lot of definition, and not wanting to waste a pretty background..…….  I die cut an oval frame and used an old Moon Glow Embossing powder in Cosmic Blue with Versamark to add detail.

I've used the Tim Holtz Flower Jar stamps and dies with purple shades of Distress inks and used Glossy Accents over the jar.  I thought about adding a sentiment, but it's Yupo, so didn't want to stamp and  heat emboss and risk it warping.

Thanks for calling in,
Avril xx

What a pretty card, nice to see someone (other than the pros) trying out the lifting technique! Not something I see myself attempting for a while yet however....no ink or yupo for that matter although I did almost buy some on my recent trip.

It's a lovely card Avril, beautiful vibrant colours. I gave up on the lift off pad, gave it away to a friend to try!

Your card does look beautiful Avril, you found a super way to use the technique results. I think this is one I will pass on though, as it does seem quite hard to get good results.
