Let Go by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone

I have a tag for you this week that uses some more of the recently released Tim Holtz stamps and stencils, all available from That’s Crafty!







What I Did:-


I have used a No.8 size tag that I had previously used to clean up diluted Lindys Stamp Gang Powders. I then set about building the background interest up stamping and stencilling with Distress inks so it all had a softer appearance. 

The next layers of stamping I wanted to be in a stronger colour so used a Ranger Dye Ink Pad. I wanted both the circles and numbers to be irregular so didn’t add them to an acrylic block I just inked them up and with the stamp just bent around in my hand, just rolled the stamp onto the tag. 

The final stamping was the main image, which is from Tim Holtz new ‘Sideshow’ set (likely to become another favourite of mine). The finishing touches to the tag include some of Tim’s washi tapes, very random stitching and my words ‘Let Go’.



What I Used:-


Tim Holtz Washi Tape
Tim Holtz Letter Stickers
Sewing Machine


Hope you like it and see you next week

Love
Amanda X
