Recently I have used the technique of lifting images from an alcohol ink background (with a Tim Holtz alcohol lift pad) quite often...

Here is the video:

 Thank you for watching!

Happy Crafting!!


  1. Very nice indeed. I sold all my alcohol inks to Sandra as I never used them, and since then lots of exciting things to do with them have surfaced. Good job she's a nice friend and shares! Love what you've done Sue. x

    1. Thank you Karen...my daughter and I have been playing lots with alcohol inks...

  2. A new technique to try.
    Looks great.
    thanks for sharing.

  3. Hey brilliant! I hadn’t heard of Tim Holts Alcohol Lift off pad! I’ve done something similar using the inks as you did then dropping other colour inks on a pad and dabbing that in background it then moves the ink around too. Xxx

    1. I only discovered it fairly recently. You can also use archival ink pads in a similar way - I have used pastel colours. Also if you use a stamping platform and repeat you can get a really clear image. A bit of playing is necessary!!
