Snowflake Cards with Alcohol Lift Ink

Hello friends!

I am back to playing with alcohol inks. It has been a while. Recently, I have received some amazing cling stamps from Penny Black and the Fab Flakes are perfect for alcohol-inking.

(all highlighted products are linked at the end of this post)

As usual, I created an artsy blue background with alcohol ink along with the Blending Solution. I decided to use the Alcohol Lift Ink. It has been a while....

I think it is best to use a slightly solid image for the lifting link. In this photo, you can see the lift image on the left.Noel 
 
On the right, I white-embossed the VERY detailed snowflake. We have been having a few snowfalls here and there. I am feeling snow-inspired. With the re-inking of the Alcohol Lift Ink, MISTI is a must! Noel -001
 
This is the beauty of alcohol-inking. You just never know how it is going to turn out. 
👉👉 edited: You may know that I am a thrifty stamper. I, for once, bought the Alcohol Lift Re-inker/refill!And boy, what a difference it makes! The Alcohol Lift Ink has to be juicy...to soak up the alcohol ink.
