September Card Chain Challenge Reveal

Today is the day all the cards sent for the Sept Card Chain Challenge are revealed over at the Card Chain Challenge blog.
This month, I sent a card to Kath in the UK and I received a card from Robyn in Australia!

Here is the card I sent to Kath in the UK.

This month I used the colors suggested as well as the Friendship theme.

I took a panel of Yupo white cardstock and dropped Alcohol Inks onto it, using Butterscotch, Dandelion and Moss AI's.  Then I blew the inks around with a rubber bulb until I was happy with the look. 
(you can also use a straw or canned air to blow them)

When the ink was dry, I inked up the Bell Flower Vine from Lavina with Alcohol Lift Ink.  I carefully pressed the stamp onto the inked panel. 
(it can be slippery and if it slips it smears the image - how do I know that??!) 

I carefully lifted the stamp off the panel then pressed over the panel with a clean cloth.  Then I rubbed over the panel with the soft cloth to remove any residual Alcohol Lift Ink and the negative image is revealed where the ink was lifted!  
(before cleaning the stamp, you can press it onto a piece of cardstock to capture the lifted image and make another card)

I added a Big Chat Sticker for the sentiment.

This is the white card panel I off-stamped after lifting the inked stamp off the Yupo. 
I had stamped the vine several times over the alcohol inked panel and off-stamped each time to capture the image before cleaning the stamp.

What a great background using these colors, Julia! Perfect for Fall! The piece using the lifted ink is just as awesome!

I’ve never played with yupo and alcohol inks, but what an amazing color effect you’ve created, and such a cool effect when lifting the ink with a stamp too. Super card!

The card is lovely and so is the “extra” panel Julia, such a pretty effect!

Two cards for the price of one. Perfect. Your leaves are so dainty and pretty. I bought some alcohol lift ink a while back and I think it is still in its wrapper! Must change that xx
