Wow! Thank you so much for playing along with the alcohol ink/lift challenge.
There were so many inspiring entries that it made choosing a winner very difficult!

Sarah's card is beautifully CAS and her lift technique really made the stencilled design pop amongst those pretty colours.

Congratulations, Sarah!

Message from Cathy
Hi, it's Cathy here. Alcohol inks are so much fun to play with!
Just remember to work in a well ventilated area.
You can apply the inks directly through a stencil onto glossy card or yupo paper.
or place a stencil onto an inked background and watch the magic happen as you remove the colour with lift ink or blending solution.
I hope you can play along this month!
