Alcohol Lift Ink Techniques


– [Jennifer] Hello, and
welcome to another video. This is Jennifer McGuire. Over the past several months, I’ve done many videos
showing fun things you can do with Alcohol Inks from Tim Holtz. They are so much fun to use for
creating unique backgrounds. Well, today I’m back to
share some more ideas using a few new products
that Tim has come out with that are really cool and allow you to get more
out of your alcohol inks. One of these new products
is Alcohol Lift-Ink. This is a brilliant
ink pad that allows you to lift ink off of an
alcohol-inked surface, and stamp it on another paper, so you can get two cards at once. And I’m also going to show you how you can use it with stencils. There are many other techniques, and I’ll share some of
those in the future. So here is a look at the
Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift-Ink. This is a very unique clear ink that is designed
specifically to lift color from an inked, nonporous surface, and transfer it to a porous surface. Now that sounds complicated,
but it is very simple. Basically, when you create
an alcohol ink background on something like Yupo paper,
you can stamp with this ink, and it lifts the color off of it. And then you can stamp it
onto regular card stock, and leave some color
behind on that card stock. So you’ll see it in action
today, and it’ll make more sense. But this is the special ink
that we’re going to use. I will also link to a video
that I did a while back where I showed how to lift ink from an alcohol-inked surface. But with this ink, you can actually transfer
that ink to another project. But if you want to, you can check out that
other video for more ideas. When creating alcohol ink backgrounds, I like to use Tim Holtz Yupo paper. Yupo paper is a synthetic
paper that is non-porous, which is perfect for taking alcohol inks. Now this, it does feel
like a plastic paper, and you really can’t tear it. In the past, I used the
regular Alcohol Ink Yupo, but now they have a heavy
stock Alcohol Ink Yupo, which is 144 pounds. It’s nice and thick,
still die cuts nicely. It works great for
alcohol ink backgrounds. And that’s what I’m
going to be using today. You could use either version. Keep in mind the techniques I do for the backgrounds where
I’m applying alcohol ink, you could also do with
other nonporous surfaces such as acetate. Okay, so we’ll stick with
the white Yupo for today. And I’ll tell you if I end
up using anything else, which I will do later in the video. The best way to understand
these new products is to start creating, so let’s start with this pair of cards. I have a piece of Yupo paper. Remember, Yupo paper is nonporous, so that means you can
use alcohol inks on it, and the color will move around. I’m applying different
Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks. I ended up putting a lot of color down. You definitely don’t need that much. A few drops would be fine. Now to get this moving quickly, I have a little mist
bottle with rubbing alcohol like you find at the grocery store. I’m gonna spritz that on there. I don’t often do that. Not sure why I decided to do it today. But you can see that it reacts right away. Now here is an alcohol ink blending tool. It has a piece of felt
on the bottom of it. That allows you to dab
around and move color, and get some really neat looks. I’ll be using this again
later in the video. Now my favorite way to
move the color around, is to blow air through a straw. I find that really works well, and it’s easy to control where
things move a bit better. You can also use Tim
Holtz Blending Solution, which moves the color
differently than rubbing alcohol. I’m putting some onto one
of the felt tip applicators, and just lightly dabbing
it onto the background. And you can see the fun
reaction that you get. Again, if you’re new to this,
check out my beginner video. I’ll link to it here, and it
talks more about these things and shows a closer look. But once I’m happy with my background, I just set it aside to dry for a bit. Next, I trim the panel
down to be about 3 3/4 by about 4 1/2 inches. But keep in mind, all
those leftover strips and pieces can be used on another card. You can even die cut things from this. So don’t get rid of any of those pieces. But for this particular card,
I just need that one size. I keep a little bowl with
my alcohol ink scraps. Next, I’m cutting a piece
of regular white card stock, good old-fashioned white card
stock, to be the same size. So what I have is a
nonporous piece of paper covered in alcohol ink. That’s the one on the right. Then I have a piece of porous paper. Regular card stock is porous. You need a nonporous that’s inked up, and a porous, which is plain card stock. And we’re gonna lift the color
from the alcohol ink surface and transfer it to the card stock. Now that may sound complicated, but the basic gist of it is, alcohol ink on Yupo paper, and the other piece is just card stock. Okay, so let’s get going with
the alcohol lift technique. For this technique, which I
did on the backgrounds here, I used a new Gina K. Designs
stamp set called Just a Little. I thought that artsy flower in the bottom would be perfect for this technique. I like that it has the cool
outline and solid images. And then, there also has
little dots around the flowers, which I thought would be
helpful with this card design. I’m using my MISTI Stamping
Tool to make the process easier, but you can use an acrylic
block if that’s all you have. I’m placing my floral image
right where I want it to stamp, and then closing the door on the MISTI. We’re going to ink this stamp up with that new Alcohol Lift-Ink. Make sure your stamp is clean. Since this is a clear ink
with a white felt pad, you don’t wanna get ink on it. So just make sure your
stamp is very clean. So I’m inking this up well. And then I will stamp it firmly onto the alcohol-inked background. This is a big stamp, so I
put a little muscle into it. If it’s a smaller stamp,
you don’t need to. Okay, so when I take this off,
it won’t look like much yet. Just set that aside. Now take that white card stock, the good old-fashioned white card stock, which happens to be porous,
and stamp that image onto it. I like to do it right away if I can. Basically, we lifted the
alcohol ink off the first piece, and transferred it to the second piece. And it amazes me how much
of that ink transfers, and how crisp of an image you get. I love two cards from one. Next, I’m taking a paper towel. I find that works best. And I’m dabbing off the Alcohol Lift-Ink from our first piece. I like to dab until I don’t see any shine, any wetness from the ink on the paper. And I rotate the paper towel around, so I have a clean spot each time. Once I don’t see any
shine, I like to dab away, or rub away, the excess Alcohol Lift-Ink. And you’ll see your
image magically appear. It’s such a cool look,
like this ghostlike image. So beautiful. This works with pretty much any stamps, but I like the kinda
artsy stamps like this that offer really cool design. Okay, so now we have two
pieces for two different cards in two very different looks. I did clean my stamp off
with Hero Arts Ultra Clean, which is my favorite stamp cleaner. So it’s ready to go again. Next, I have a Birch Press
Thanks Sugar Script die cut. And I’m going to use that
as a positioning here, because I thought I was gonna
use the thanks greeting, but in the end, I changed my mind. I have my Tim Holtz Trimmer out, and I’m holding the two
stamped backgrounds together, so I can cut them both at once. I’m cutting a diagonal line,
or a angled line, on one edge. I just decided I wanted to have some angled lines on this card. So then I want to cut again,
but perpendicular to that. Sorry, my engineering
ways are coming out here. So I’m lining this piece up, this edge, with a straight line grid on my trimmer. And I will cut again. So I end up with kind of like
an X through our background, kinda towards the bottom. And I’ll do the same thing
with the other piece. I will rearrange these pieces
to be together on our card. You could’ve left them
connected if you wanted to, but I thought this would be a fun way to add a little bit of interest. I also left a lot of the image together, so that you could really see the pattern that we created with that technique. Okay, so now it’s time to arrange all this onto the front of a card. I have a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2
inch white note card. And you can see how
I’ve arranged my pieces, but I separated them a little bit. Here’s where I thought
I was gonna use thanks, but I felt it was too squashed there, so I ended up switching
to a different die cut, and I’ll save this one for later. I like that this card
design could also be used for a horizontal card. Okay, so I decided to add these
pieces with some dimension. So I glued craft foam behind the pieces. I used Gina K. Connect, which is a nice, strong liquid adhesive, glued it to the corner of a
piece of white craft foam, and trimmed away the excess. And I’ll do this to all four pieces, and then glue them to the
card with the same glue. Now if you look up there at the top, you’ll see a die that
says, oh, hello there. I use that, it’s from Simon Says Stamp, to die cut the word, hello. And that’s what I decided to use on the sentiment for this card instead of the thanks that
I had originally planned. Once I have all of my pieces positioned with a little gap between, I want to stamp a sentiment into the gap. I’m using the Altenew
Needlework Motif Stamp Set. This has lots of thin sentiments that are great for tiny areas. Used it many times in past videos. So to do this, I’m using
my MISTI Stamping Tool, which is very helpful to stamp on a card when there’s some dimension on it. Sorry, my head keeps
gettin’ in the way there. I placed the sentiment into this gap on the front of the card. And then I’ll stamp that
with a dark teal color. I’m adding the hello die cut that I got from that Simon Says
Stamp Oh Hello There Die that I showed you a few minutes ago. I actually die cut three of the hellos, and glued them on top of each
other for a stacked look. People have asked why
I stack them together. It really is just to help
the die cut stand out against a busy background. It makes a big difference. So here’s a closer look at the first one, where we did the alcohol ink, and lifted the color away afterwards with the Alcohol Lift-Ink. I also stamp the matching envelope. And here’s the second card that we used where we stamped that
ink that we lifted off onto regular card stock. And I created a card with
the same card design. I like that this technique
allows you to get two cards with very different looks. Let’s do another example of
this where I use the pieces, but I interchanged a
couple of them for fun. I’m just going to show you
this one pretty quickly. I started with a background
of using alcohol inks in green and blue colors. And this time, I’m applying the color using that felt alcohol ink applicator. Now this alcohol ink
applicator is the same one that we use for blending, but instead of putting foam on it, we put a little piece of
felt that Ranger sells. So you can actually use the same tool, and just switch out what’s on the tool. Here, I’m adding a little
bit of Blending Solution. And then using my straw
to blow air onto it to move the color around. Once I’m happy with the results, I just set it aside to
dry for a little bit. So I did the same
stamping as I did before. I stamped the Alcohol Lift-Ink
with that floral image onto the alcohol-inked background. And then I stamped it off onto
a piece of white card stock. So we end up with two beautiful images. This time, I just trim some
strips out of it horizontally. So I hold the two pieces together. That way, they’re cut in the same places. And I cut a little bit from the bottom. Then I moved it, and
cut a little bit more. Not measuring at all, just making sure that I had three pieces that showed enough of the image that you could see that
continuous floral pattern. So I’m going to glue these onto my card, but mix them up a bit, so that each card has a
little bit of the white piece and a little bit of the inked piece. I put craft foam behind
each of these pieces like I did on the last card. And added them to a 4 1/4 by
5 1/2 inch white note cards. I like that the stamping is continuous across the different pieces. I used that script thanks die
cut that I showed you earlier on both of the cards. On this one, the top die cut is cut from some alcohol ink scrap paper. I also added a few
sequence here and there. So again, I was able to create two cards from one inked background
using the Alcohol Lift-Ink. I also really like that
with this technique, you can make two cards pretty quickly. Okay, my next example using
the ink shows two cards that are made from one
alcohol ink background, but with two different designs. This time, I’m using the Gina
K. Tropical Tidings Stamp Set. This has lots of images that would be great for this technique, but I’m using the one on the bottom left. So I’m placed my alcohol-inked piece that was left over from my
first card into my MISTI. I’m inking up the stamp
with the Alcohol Lift-Ink. Again, always be sure
that you’re stamp is clean before using this since you
have a white pad with clear ink. So I’ll stamp this onto our
alcohol-inked background, and then I will lift off that ink, and stamp it onto a piece
of regular card stock that’s porous card stock. So I stamp it on there, and look at the beautiful,
soft image I get. If you want it to be darker,
you can repeat the process, which I’m gonna show you here. I’m putting my alcohol ink
piece back into the MISTI. Notice, I didn’t wipe any of it off yet. I’m going to clean my stamp
so I can be sure it’s clean before I ink it up again
with Alcohol Lift-Ink. And I’ll stamp it again onto
my alcohol-inked background. This lifts more color, which I can stamp again
onto the card stock right on top of the first image. And here, you can see dark, crisp, very good image we get from that. Now back to our alcohol-inked piece. I’m first going to dab
away some of the ink with a dry paper towel. I’ll do this until the
shine seems to be gone. Always rotating my paper towel
so I’m using a clean spot. Once the shine’s gone, I can start buffing it
to remove all of the ink, and you’ll see the image pop out and give you beautiful results. From these two pieces, I
made two very simple cards. The first one with the
alcohol ink background. I trim the background down and
matted it on white card stock before adding it to a pool note card. I then created a stacked thanks die cut that I glued to the card
allowing the background to show. For the other card, I cut a tall strip, and then I added a stacked thanks die cut from pool card stock, and added a pool card stock strip down the side of the stamped piece. So there again, we were able to get two
cards from one technique. Okay, so for my next two cards, I thought I’d show how you can use the Alcohol Lift-Ink
Reinker with stencils. So let’s start with our
alcohol ink background. I have Yupo paper again. I’m squirting lots of different colors of alcohol ink directly onto the paper. Again, I’m putting it on pretty heavy, but you can go lighter if you want to. I decided to kind of
do a rainbow of color. So I put a line of each color, but I stop and I use a straw to kind of blow the colors
together and move it around, so it doesn’t look perfect. I also like to put drops of
the Blending Solution on, so it moves even more. You can even use a brush
to move the color around. Just be sure to clean it when you’re done. So keep applying color
and Blending Solution, and moving it until you’re happy. After I got that first part moving, I decided to go ahead and
add some blue and green ink. Again, putting on Blending Solution and moving the ink as I go, so I get a really fun-looking background. Once I was complete, I
let it dry for a while. And then I’m taking this new
Gina K. Lovely Lace Stencil and putting it right on top. This is a beautiful stencil that’s perfect for this technique. I’ll tape it on the back, so that the stencil doesn’t move when we’re doing the technique. Now for this, you need the
felt alcohol ink applicator, like I mentioned before. And onto that felt alcohol ink applicator, I’m putting the Tim Holtz
Alcohol Lift-Ink Reinker. So this is the Reinker for the ink pad, but we’re actually just
using drops from it for this technique. I’ll put a few drops of the
Reinker onto the felt piece. And then I’ll pounce this around and move this around over the stencil. Now make sure you don’t have
too much Reinker on your felt, or the excess will creep under
the stencil and make a mess. So I like to kind of press
it onto my work surface to remove a little of the Reinker before bringing it to my stencil. When you tilt it in the light, you’ll be able to see the shine where the Reinker has landed, so you can be sure you’ve
covered all the areas. Also, you’ll find that the
applicator that we’re using will pick up some of the color, and you’ll end up with lighter areas wherever there’s an exposed
area in the stencil. So you can see it reacting already. Once you’ve covered the whole area, I like to take a paper towel,
a dry one, and lay it on top, and just press to try to remove some of the excess Alcohol
Lift-Ink and the color. I’ll rotate my paper towel,
and do this a few times. And you’ll see the open
areas get lighter-looking, because we’re lifting the color away from all of the open areas. Once I’ve removed a lot
of the excess by dabbing, I’ll take clean paper towel spots, and rub away the excess of the ink. So you really soften all those open areas. Once you’re done, you
can remove the stencil and check out the cool effect. If you need to, you can
buff away additional ink, and you really get a nice, crisp look that is just beautiful. I trim the colorful panel down, and die cut a heart
window with a heart die. And I can save the die-cut
heart for another card. I added that with some foam adhesive onto a 4 1/2 by 5 1/2-inch note card. I stacked three friend die cuts together, and then added a black die cut on top. And I glued that into the heart opening. I then stamped a miss you
always sentiment underneath from that same Needlework
Motif Altenew Stamp Set that I showed you earlier in the video. I decided to keep this card very simple, so the focus would be on
the unique background. This stencil technique is very fun. And one of the other
great benefits of it is that if you create an
alcohol ink background that you don’t really love, but you were just
experimenting and learning, you can use this Alcohol Lift-Ink
technique with a stencil, and give it a completely new look. Okay, I have one more
stenciled card technique. This time, I started with
an alcohol ink background on Yupo paper again, where
I used the felt applicator to swipe the ink back and forth
diagonally across the panel. So that’s how I get that striped look that’s really beautiful. So I have another Gina K. Stencil. This is another new one. And I’ll tape this onto that
alcohol-inked background. And again, I’ll use my
felt alcohol ink applicator to apply some drops of
the Alcohol Lift Reinker. I made sure I didn’t have
too much of the Reinker, just a couple drops. And this time, I’m
really moving it around, swirling it around, and I
found that works great, too. You’ll see right away that the
background starts to soften, so we know we’re lifting that ink away. Once you’ve covered the whole area, you can use a dry paper
towel to dab away the excess before removing the stencil. Once I see less shine on it,
I can remove the stencil, dab away the rest of the ink, and then rub it away to buff it to get a nice, smooth result. Now I turn this into a card just like I did on the last example, adding this simple friend die cut and lots of love stamped below. Simple designs like this
are great for showcasing any kinda alcohol ink background
technique that you may do. So there you have an introduction
to the Alcohol Lift-Ink and the fun things you can use it for, along with your alcohol ink backgrounds. So I list all the supplies I used below in my YouTube description. In the middle, I link to one of my early
alcohol ink background videos. And I also link to a
video that Tim Holtz did where he introduced these products. Thanks for watching. We’ll see you soon. Have a great day.

  1. I've created some backgrounds using alcohol inks several months ago. Can I use this technique on these backgrounds, even though they're weeks old?

  2. I have seen Tim's video on the Alcohol Lift Ink Pad and you just created more beauties. As always, you throw in lots of tips and tricks throughout your videos to help us to our best. Can't wait until I get my pad this week! Thank you so very much.

  3. I just got my alcohol lift ink supplies a few days ago so now I will have to use it. Your cards were beautiful. Love them. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week.

  4. Awesome techniques Jennifer, can’t wait to try the lift, products on there way!💜🤗

  5. Way Cool, love love love this technique.. guess I need to invest in some alcohol inks and lifter.. gotta love Tim Holtz, thank Jennifer xoxo…

  6. I wonder if you inked a jelly plate and then pressed it over the stencil if it would pick up the image and then you could stamp that onto cardstock…

  7. Got my pad yesterday and I'm hoping the inker comes in soon. Thank you again Jennifer for sharing your awesome talent. Makes playing around less frustrating when you get me off to a better, knowledgeable start.

  8. Cool new product. Just when you think Tim Holtz can't come up with any more products then BAM! He does it again. Beautiful cards. The Friend card (2nd from last) looks like Batik material, very cool.

  9. Truth…I wasn’t impressed with the lift ink until I saw your video. Ahem….RangerInk…Jennifer shines!!!
    Thanks for spotlighting different products. 😘

  10. Wow! These are beautiful! You are so creative – you have quite the knack of coming up with creative card ideas. I love the way you get 2 cards for the work of 1. These would make a great set to give as a gift (in a box) or to send individually. Thanks for sharing your time and talent.

  11. Hi Jennifer…. Thanks for another great video. Please just be careful when you spray your alcohol in a spray bottle. They do not recommend this action as this forms a mist that you will inhale and can cause trouble for your lungs. Take care.. and crafty hugs to you xo

  12. Hi Jennifer love your videos. Can you tell me what the difference is between the yupo paper and the paper photos are printed on. Are they similar? Could you get the same effects?

  13. I bought the pad as soon as I saw it on Tim's launch video. Bought only the pad until I see how much I'd actually use it, and now I see I need the re-inker too for sure. Jennifer, I love your engineering mind and how it helps you to think differently! Please don't ever apologize for that. The more complex, fiddly, and technique-y it is, the better!

  14. I hope you know that I am drooling over here! I just LOVE how these cards look. I want alcohol inks so baaaaad!

  15. Thank you 🙏 I love alcohol inks; they were the first inks that i used when i started crafting. This is so much fun!

  16. Is Alcohol Ink — whichever brand — the same as the ink for the re-inkers? Or do we have Distress Ink, Distress Oxide, and Alcohol Ink, all by Tim Holtz?

  17. Jennifer, this may be one of my all-time favorite cards of the bazillions I've watched you make! Really gorgeous and an unusual twist. Thank you so much!

  18. Gorgeous cards and fun technique! Shared on my FB group page, Roberta's Artistic Adventures.

  19. How fun. You made some really beautiful cards. Will the alcohol lift ink work if the metallic mixatives are used on the background? Thanks for another terrific video!

  20. Each card and design are absolutely beautiful. An inspiration to try accomplish such attractive designs without making a muddy mess. Here we go…thanks Jennifer ❤❤❤

  21. You're a mechanical engineer? Me too! I no longer work as an engineer, also like you. I would love too turn my papercrafting and mixed media art into a career, I'll definitely be looking into how you did it for inspiration. 😊

  22. Thank you Jennifer I'm getting some of that ink…I have the Yupo paper so now I need the ink……………pat

  23. I find the Simon Says Stamp Ultra clean is VERY comparable to Hero Arts' Ultra Clean stamp cleaner. With any dye inks, I find that's the best cleaner. Anything water based doesn't get your stamps ultra clean! It is oily though.

  24. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  25. Hi Jen! I watched Tim's video when he introduced the lift ink. I instantly bought it online for me and 2 friends! I've been using it and I love it! I don't only use yupo, but I also use photo paper! Only a certain kind works though!

  26. I do like adding a twist to alcohol inks…this is sort of like "ghosting" and gives a really nice effect…especially with the stencils. Using a stamp for a second generation print doesn't wow me …at all. This technique reminded me of using Brilliance inks to stamp (used as a resist) and then inking over them with multi color ink pads. Rub off ink on the stamped image and you have a beautiful resist background.

  27. Whilst beautiful cards – PLEASE PLEASE make aware that you should wear gloves when using alcohol inks, you should never spray the Blending Solution or Isopropyl Alcohol and should be in a very well ventilated area (you actually should be wearing a mask)! These are important issues that keep getting skipped when people introduce these products. I paid a major price with my health for not knowing this and so did my pet, and since researching it found so have many, many others that have too.

  28. I just got the lift ink pad and refill today. Love seeing how you used the alcohol inks and pad.
    Can't wait to try this out myself.

  29. Jennifer, loved this enough to buy all the alcohol ink etc yesterday. Make the paper this morning only problem is that the ink drops come out of the bottle so quickly. I think you should tell your viewers they should use latex gloves. I love the outcome though. Thanks for your wonderful videos. Dotti

  30. So amazing! You are just full of wonderful ideas, techniques, and gorgeous cards. Thank you for sharing your talent with the world! ❤️

  31. I bought the Yupo paper and the Alcohol Lift Ink at Stampfest this year, but wasn't quite sure how to use them. This video is awesome. Thank you so much for a great tutorial on how to make some really unique cards!!!

  32. O wow, this is so cool. I haven't ever felt that I "needed" alcohol inks but this totally changes my mind!! This stretches what you can do with alcohol inks too, making it a little more cost effective. I always love 2 for 1's as well. I think the first 2 cards are my favourite as I love how you cut and placed the image on the card base. The stencil technique is awesome too. Love it!!! Now I do "need" these, lol!! Thanks for another great tutorial!!

  33. Love this a lot. I have the ink and the blending solution. I just have to get the lift pad and yupo paper. I know I can do it. It is magic to me. I saw on Pinterest that someone made their own small stencils using playing cards especially for the ATC cards. Love your videos

  34. Hi Jennifer, it looks like you can use the Alcohol-Lift ink on a panel that has been dry for quite a while. You did so twice with some left-over alcohol inked panels. Can you confirm that it works just as well as on a "freshly" inked panel? Thank you for the inspiration! Love how this technique emphasizes the beautiful original panels, as well as the "two-fer" feature 🙂

  35. I just tried to stamp on the background using Hero Arts Shadow Ink and it works just like the Alcohol Lift Ink. Interesting.

  36. I’ve had mine for two months and I love it and agree with all your points. Is excellent and a better size than I expected. A good investment 🤗🤗

  37. Love your videos. The narrative is always straightforward and continuous – no ahs, ers, etc. Love your work.

  38. I have a question for you totally unrelated to this blog post. You use a variety of stamps from different companies. How do you keep track of sentiments so you can find the right one for the card you are making? or the journal page? I have been asking lots of makers this question and so far no one has answered. I think it would be an excellent topic for a post/video. People talk about how they store all their goodies, but no one talks about how they find the exact words or sentiments they want to find for their work. Just curious. I have a few thoughts but I don't want to have to reinvent the wheel if someone has a system that works. thanks as always for sharing.

  39. Do I need to use the little bottles of ink or will it work using the ink pads? I only have the pads but not sure if you could transfer enough ink? Appreciate your advice and as always your fab videos and talent xx

  40. Hi Jennifer, I absolutely love your videos and appreciate all of your tips and tricks. I just received my alcohol lift ink pad but am not having similar results…my images are not clear and the lifted ink is very splotchy when transferred to cardstock. Do you have any recommendations?
    All the best,
    Chris

  41. Hi Jennifer! I just love this technique and I can't wait to try it! You had listed in your supplies Design Master clear matte finish spray. Is that something that needs to be sprayed over the alcohol ink designs? Thanks so much for you help and thanks for sharing!

  42. As usual, stunning work Jennifer. I was wondering, how long after the alcohol backgrounds are dry are you able to lift the ink. Say if I was in a hurry and left them to dry overnight, could I lift the ink the next day? When is the optimum time to lift the ink? Thank you again for all the work you put into your videos. They all get my creative juices going and I've learned so much from you. ❤️

  43. Just love your cards! They are gorgeous. Would you be able to share the color combos you used – which color inks you used on each card? Thank you!

  44. How am I ever going to remember all of these steps? Maybe I'm just too old for this technique but I just LOVE it.

  45. Can I re wet a dry alcohol ink background if not satisfied with how it turned out a couple of days later?? Thank you if anyone can reply
