The is to challenge you to recycle those inky paper towels.
You can use your saturated inky towels to transfer some ink
for a unique and artsy background,
or simple use your inky paper towels to create backgrounds or die-cuts.
Lots of fun and a great way to make use of leftover ink.

CAS Mix Up July Monthly Picks


July's challenge was a new technique for many of us and it was such fun to see all the creative ways of lifting alcohol ink.  As always the choice of winner was very difficult.  

Thanks for playing along with us this month!

Our Top Pick for July

We love the colors of Stephanie's alcohol ink background and the crisp lifting that makes these wildflowers show off beautifully.  Great job, Stephanie!
