A Tag Card by Amanda Southern

Hi Everyone

I’m with you this Tuesday with a tag card that I have made.

And here’s how I did it:-


I started with a No.8 manila Tag, I love that you can throw virtually anything at these.

I started by sprinkling some grey Brusho Crystals on the tag and spraying lightly with water and dried with my heat gun. I then stamped some of the background stamps from the new Finnabair stamp sets in red Archival ink I then overstamped all this with one of the background stamps that looks like an old stone wall with black Archival ink. I then stencilled the numbers with gesso and a stiff brush some additional stamping finished it off.

I then stamped my figure, one of the silhouettes from Dina Wakley’s Silhouetted Women, with Versamark onto matt black card. I then heat embossed with white embossing powder and then cut it out. To make it less white I airbrushed Copic pens, any alcohol pens would do this, using a hand held spritzer. Before adding to my tag I added some machine stitching to my tag. My sentiment which works around the stamped word SEE is from Tim Holtz Small Talk.

I finally added some hand punched hearts stapled on using Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. I then cut and scored myself a suitable card blank to mount my tag on.


Items Used:-

Archival Ink Pads - Black, Vermillion
Dina Wakley Stamps - Primitive Icons & Silhouetted Women
Finnabair background stamps from the following sets – Dirty Walls, Never Too Late & Dream On
Matt Black Card
Tim Holtz Distress Spray Bottle (I actually used a different one but this is the same)
Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher


Thanks, and I hope you like it.

See you next Tuesday
