Grungy Monday 7 - Color BlockingDI

Ok, So does everyone love, love love the challenges that Linda offers us each week? I sure do! Not only does it get me off my duff and using my stuff...I am learning fun new techniques each week!! If you don't know what I'm talkin' about - check it out here. Tim Holtz is our 'man', and he's got all the techniques, tools, inks, and stamps! My entry this week uses the totally famous brolly man - which I FINALLY received from my pre-order. It was completely painful watching everyone using him, and me sitting in wait. SO...I hope you enjoy the entry. I used Faded Jeans, Weathered Wood, Stormy Sky, Broken China, Pumice Stone, and Scattered Straw DI. Brolly man was cut using paper from the Lost and Found Stack (which is on clearance at Michaels (but the way)). The saying is from TH. Enjoy

  1. What a totally delightful creation! I just do not have the wonderful imagination people such as you have! Although I wasn't in love with Umbrella Man when he first appeared, he became more attractive all the time. I'm so glad that I got the die.
