CTD #507 Using Alcohol Ink Lifting

Happy Saturday!

ITs been a while since I did a challenge. Im trying to adjust to a new work shift and luckily I no longer feel like a zombie!

The Color Throwdown Challenge this week used the colors, lime green, green, aqua and eggplant.

I had just gotten the Alcohol Lift Ink and had to play. 
I used Alcohol Inks in Citrus, Limeade, Eggplant and Mermaid.

The eggplant came out way darker in the finished inked piece but I loved the outcome. 

After it tried I used the Lift Ink with with Simon Says Stamp Center Cut Star background stamp.

I also wanted to play around with adding gold foil to the sticky bits. 

I used to do nail art and have a bunch of nail foil and luckily it worked!
After the piece tried a few minutes , I laid down the foil and stuck to this sticky thicker bits!

Since the purple was so dark I decided to put onto a purple matte 
and have the sentiment also be purple.

The sentiment is the Simon Says Stamp Painted Happy Birthday Die that I cut out four times to add some dimension.

I then coated in clear embossing powder to give it some shine!
