Plastic Umbrella Guy!

The wonderful Linda for week 19 of Grungy Monday has us doing grungepaper piecing and plastic recycling using Tim's technique right here!!  I thought this was perfect for using the Umbrella Guy, which I have not used for a while.

His coat, hat and shoes are colored with Distress Black Soot, Umbrella Barn Door, Pants and gloves Brushed Corduroy.  Face was colored with Blush Blossom (separate cut out) the Umbrella handle colored in gold and then highlight with Rock Candy, which of course you don't see due to the plastic.  I decided to cover only the UG in recycled plastic.  For the tag background, I used Tim's Kraft Paper and sadly, did not realize that the stamped sentiment would be lost in translation!  So I just did a little redo and stamped the sentiment on a piece of recycled plasted and added brads to hold it down.  I went a little dark with distressing the tag, but we are already planning a new one!  Simon Says Stamp and Show a Tim Holtz Technique, so we are going there also!

Hope your start to the week is a great one!
