You'll love the beautiful designs you can create with the Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift-Ink Pad by Ranger Ink. This kit includes one alcohol lift-ink pad which has clear ink that is designed to lift color from non-porous surfaces and transfer to porous surfaces, as well as one .5oz reinker bottle. These can be used with clear or rubber stamps to remove ink from backgrounds, with stencils and more.
This is lots of fun. Being able to remove alcohol in from an image leaves a very cool ghosted look.
And then being able to stamp that image on card, genius!
The ink does make the stamp a little slippery/slidey when you place it on top of the alcohol image background, so be careful not to move it at all. Or better yet, use some sort of stamp positioner.
I found that ink must be new, hours old vs a print from weeks ago to get good clear lift. Even so had a lot of incomplete butterflies,stamp I was using most), did figure out but was disappointed that of course it wasn't as easy to do as video showed. Will keep at it though , cool use of alcohol ink
I really like the effects that can be obtained with this product.
You can remove color from your project and also transfer this same color to another surface. You can create great images.
When I received my ink pad in September 2018 I did not realize the dry was just about dried out. I finally tried it again a year 2019 after reinking the pad. It took 3/4 bottle of reink to moisten the pad which I think is a lot. I still did not get a good left. I plan to continue to try.
