Default How did they do it pg 106 of SU catty

So how did SU get the train image like that. Any guesses? I think that is just beautiful!

Looks like they may have used one of the Spectrum pads and maybe misted the stamp after inking it.

In the back of the catty they list the different ink colors. Maybe they just sponged it on? I don't believe they carry the spectrum pads anymore.

If I read correctly, they used the markers instead of the pads. But that doesn't explain the *smokey* look. I bet they did spritz the stamp before stamping on the paper.

You are right! I just tried to think of how I would accomplish that look without giving a thought to the fact that they don't sell the spectrum pads anymore. I guess I wouldn't make a good demo... here use this products that we don't sell anymore!

And as somebody else pointed out, they do list the colors of markers used.

My guess is that they used the markers directly on the stamp and then stamped it on the paper that was misted with prior to stamping. It's a very cool look!

Think that smokey look comes from the pattern the stamp makes. I do concur with the use of markers and misting, not sure if it was the paper or the stamp, but it does look way cool. Can't wait until mine gets here to try it!

Well let me know when you do, because I want that look.

To me it looks like some kind of resist technique. Train stamped in VersaMark, heat embossed, and then the color added to the background.

But if you look at the stamp, the train itself has hardly any ink...it's the background that gets inked.

I wonder if the ink was put on a sponge than the paper sprayed with just a little mist. I have been looking at this on the online catty, do the supplies list glossy paper?

Did you notice the tree in the sample above the train is also colored the same??...that, too, lists the marker colors.

I am going to have to agree that misting the rubber after coloring sounds like the most probably way to do it.

The color of the train is the CS, it says Sahara Sand (Vanilla Navy & Mustard are listed & you can see where they are used so it narrows it down)...but the washed out antiqued colors had to be done using the markers since that's what's listed in the supply list.

It looks a lot like an old technique I learned from my demo years ago, she called it batik. We stamped with versa on white mulberry paper, heat embossed with white, then spritzed the paper with re-inkers diluted in little spray bottles. Here is the link to the samples we made. http://www.stampinkristie.com/Nov_batik.html

I did a series with the lighthouse set that sort of had the same effect. Here's a link to one where I described how I did it:

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...&ppuser=118754

Each of the lighthouses came out slightly different from one another using the same technique. They could have easily done it simply using the baby wipe technique.

I definitely thought "spectrum pad" when I first saw it but of course they don't sell that anymore.

I have loved working with the lighthouse set so much that the locomotive was one of the first on my shopping list, too!!

ETA: Well... duh... I didn't even look at the supply list!! Using markers and misting would definitely work - but that's quite a lot of markering. If you have reinkers, the baby wipe technique is loads of fun!

Nancy, your light house cards are gorgeous. I'll have to give that technique a try.

Does anyone still use the puffer thingy that you put on the tips of markers to create an air brush effect? that could be what was used in the sample??

Thanks so much ~ that technique was so fun, I made a stack of those lighthouses... couldn't stop LOL!!

I had one of the color spritzer things - and studied video tutorials - and it still didn't work well for me. My DH got a great deal on a hobby airbrush set for models and said I could try that out though ~ apparently a lot of the big discount stores are discontinuing their hobby/model areas and clearing out that stuff. The color spritzer was loads of work and I had no patience for it. Would be a fun way to color stamps though if you have a knack for it.

I don't see how this could be a resist technique...isn't the train a negative stamp? The train itself couldn't be stamped because it's the raised part of the image, right?
