[Technique] Contact Paper and Ink Lifting by Channin

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here with a new technique video! In today’s video I expand upon the ink lifting technique by incorporating contact paper masks!

[Technique] Contact Paper and Ink Lifting by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

To start I die cut several flowers and leaves from a 6” x 6” piece of contact paper with the Bouquet Builder Matching Dies. Once die cut I saved the die sheet as well as the die cut flower and leaves.

Next, I ink blended distressed oxides (1:Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet; 2: Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade) onto 2 A2 panels of Bristol paper die cut using the largest die from the A2 Nesting Rectangles 1 Die set.

I then heat set the panels and then removed the backing on the contact paper die cuts and adhered them to the panels. I adhered the sheet to one panel and the die cuts leaves and flowers to the other.

Next, with a wrung out chamois cloth, I lifted the ink off the panels by pressing the chamois to the paper. Once I finished lifting the ink off the surface, I removed the contact paper and then stamped and white heat embossed some flowers and leaves from the Bouquet Builder Samp Set onto the panels.

Next, I created my sentiments by stamping and heat embossing sentiments from the Rainbows Stamp Set onto strips of black cardstock. To finish the cards, I adhered the panels onto A2 top-folding card bases and then adhered the sentiments with foam tape.

I hope you enjoyed today’s video and technique! Thanks so much for stopping by!
