Default does this technique have a name

So I'm adapting something I saw at a stamp show where the guy from Stamper's Anonymous put 2-3 shades of distress ink directly on a craft sheet. Then he spritzed with water and laid his tag directly on top of the colors and kind of smooshed the paper around. After pulling it up, he hit it with a heat gun and then applied more layers with sponging.

I used regular dye inks on a piece of wax paper and it seemed to work pretty well. Just wondering what this is called - besides "smooshing color around."

thanks
Nancy

I would check on Tim Holtzs blog- sounds like his area of expertise...he probably would have a name for it.

I kind of like "smooshing color around" though!!

O - I bet you're right. The guy was channeling Tim Holtz completely. My mom thought he was Tim and was about to ask for his autograph.

Tim Holtz does do something just like this. I can't remember what he calls it though!

Yep, I was about to say the same as tweedcurtain - Tim Holtz calls it "wrinkle free distress" (probably because he does basically the same thing having first balled up the paper and flattened it back out again so this is that without the wrinkles!).

Definitely Tim Holtz style!!! (I use this technique all the time, and I learned it from him ) That style is such fun to use on tags and cards!!!

I've seen the technique done with alcohol inks. There are several videos out doing the technique. Each person has a different name for it.

I learned this technique by watching Tim Holtz's first 12 Days of Christmas Tags series a few years ago. Jennifer McGuire also did a lot of these techniques on the 2 Peas website. There is a whole series of videos there.

LOL, no kidding! Sometimes I just have to giggle about it. There just aren't any "brand new under the sun" techniques. Something may have been big a decade ago, fallen out of favor and then resurrected, but it doesn't make it "new." It just has a new name. It's kind of unfortunate because it really can add to the confusion of newer stampers.

My first thought was the "smackin' acetate," too, only I was thinking of the version that was introduced before it was called smackin' acetate, lol! I think it's just like when you first hear a song and like it. Even when you hear the original version of the song, it doesn't sound as "right" as the version you heard first, despite the fact that it was a re-make.

Whatever...as long as nobody gets upset about "copyrights" or giving credit, it really doesn't matter, does it?

a very long time ago people did this with aluminum foil from the kitchen... on freezer paper. (before craft mats were made) and so I have also seen people call it "foil transfer technique" I do this alot too... but i don't bother to heat gun dry it because when i make background sheets i tend to do a bunch of them at once and just spread them around the window sills and flat surfaces and let them all dry...

You are probably thinking of Ted Cutts from Stampers Anonymous...he demos alot of Time Holtz products. I took a class with Ted Cutts last year at Adventures in Stamping in Akron. He will be doing the same class this year and Tim Holtz is also doing a couple of classes which I may try to sign up for.
