AI Lift

Hello there
I'm glad you popped in...

I've been playing with alcohol inks and in particular the alcohol lift technique whilst trying to get some inspiration for this years Christmas cards

I ended up making 4 cards from one piece of 5x7 Yupo so there are a few photos here. What I should explain too is that other than the square/rectangle dies, I used only one image die... Remember the die I used here? A sort of semi circular one that had a stag a deer and a few trees... Well with some snipping here and there, I was able to just use half at a time...

 So this is the left half of the die cut out and you can see the AI lift just using one branch stamp

The next card uses the right side of the die... minus the fir tree

I added some gold paint here and there and the sentiment comes from the same stamp set as the branch made by Woodware.
I also did a couple of DL sized cards, simply because I seemed to have quite a few DL size envelopes in my stash - Here you can see part of the fir tree as well

And the last one

So in all 1 piece of Yupo, 2 die cuts and 4 cards - For all of them I die cut or used left over die cut squares/rectangles. Once you get used to it, it's easy to adapt your square or rectangle dies to be an exact fit for your image and that's what I did here.

Thanks so much for your visit... Enjoy your day
