Get some Color, Sir!!

Hello everyone!!

(Please excuse my late post, I had a sick kiddo last night)

Today I wanted to share with you how easy it can be to snip off a few small parts of a stamp and make it fit a new use!!

I took the Umbrella Man


$8.75 - 3" x 1.75"

and I snipped off his umbrella!!



Then I threaded some twine and put together this tag:


other products used: Momento Black, wooden spool, twine, Basic Grey's Lime Rickey, black pen, Distress ink and stain, water, manilla tag, old book, VLVS Miracle Tape.

Thanks for stopping by again!! -DeeDee

I've also entered this tag into the Spotted Canary Summer competition - keep your eyes peeled for the voting to open!

Very cool DeeDee! I did something similar by adding balloons to a stamp. You can scroll way down to see. I have this umbrella man stamp and love how you've used it here! Thanks for sharing.
