Two for One

Hello TJ Fans!

I consider the September release to be the release that just keeps on giving!  With soooo many great designs, it is hard to know what to play with first!  Take this Autumn Doodles Background stamp.  What a beauty!  I have made two cards using one technique~

I learned this technique from J. McGuire; its a great one if you love alcohol inks.
I started with a piece of Yupo and alcohol inks in a fall palette.  I created my alcohol ink background and then simply stamped the Autumn Doodles stamp in Alcohol Ink Lift Ink.
I then immediately stamped the ink that was on the stamp onto a piece of cardstock that I had ready in my MISTI.

Now I still have the original Yupo paper left that I had lifted ink from.  It had a beautiful texture on it from the ghost image of the Autumn Doodles stamp.  I used this to make on of my favorite backgrounds- popped up negative die cut pieces~

So there you have it- two for one.  So easy and artsy.  And this month's stamps really lend themselves to this technique.  You can get 10% off your entire cart (minus clearance items) with code TJ10LeeAnn.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
