More Alcohol Lift Ink

Hello friends!
I have been experimenting more with Alcohol Lift Ink with my alcohol inks. 
Today's card is one of those that did turn out...

Yes, Virginia ...
Not all alcohol ink creations come out as planned, hoped and expected.
I am using this Xmas Sprig as my example.

it's the most wonderful time of the year-001

 If you are not familiar with Alcohl Ink, this is pretty much what you do. 
I started out with creating colorful background with the mix of alcohol ink and Alcohol Blending Solution on Yupo Paper.
it's the most wonderful time

 Once it is dried, I stamped the Alcohol Lift Ink and waited till it's dry. It doesn't take long to dry, however, it does take a while to start to see the lifted images. I buffed the surface gently with a piece of dry cloth. It is so neat to see the imprint!

This is when you can actually stop the process since part of the ink has been be lifted and leave you a subtle texture/imprint on your glossy paper.

I decided to add more color, so I stamped more in Expresso Distress Oxide on top and one the side.
it's the most wonderful time-002

Once I stamped the sentiment..... and I felt that there was no embellishment needed.

edited: would you believe this card was created with the exact same stamp...but different medium?
