The new Alcohol Lift-Ink Pad from Tim Holtz opens up a whole new easy way of creating with stamps. Once you’ve created a palette background with your Alcohol Inks on a non-porous surface (plastic, vinyl, metal, yupo), you can then use the Alcohol Lift-Ink Pad to lift off the color with your stamp. The end result is a ghosted image in the background as well as a multi-colored inked stamp that you can then transfer to paper. Incredible!
