Half way through the challenge, there’s some time to play with Bonnie’s CAS Mix Up Challenge theme of Alcohol Ink Lift. Our Special Guest Michelle and the design team have come up with some pretty cool cards to get you started.
For these cards I used a Hero Arts Konnichiwa Floral Blossom stamp to “lift” alcohol ink off Yupo Paper and then placed the ink onto the cardstock. I heat embossed both the Yupo and cardstock before assembling these cards. My first was the blue where I rubbed instead of dabbed the Alcohol ink, UGH, so I rescued the piece by white embossing the Yupo. The second, I forgot to completely clean my stamp so I had left over blue ink (on the left side) which I stamped onto the white window card. Finally the third was the one I was truly happy with. This technique creates interesting impressions full of colour, once you keep in mind all the steps. The Peek a Boo window die cut is from MFT.
The challenge is really worth giving it a try. Can’t wait to see your CAS cards in our gallery. Thank you so much for stopping by, HUGs,
