My new Umbrella Man is part of Grungy Monday

I'm apologizing to at least two early Grungy Monday posters....for duplicating the color and for using the Umbrella Man.  However, I have just 3 acrylic dabbers, and aqua was my choice to match the Umbrella Man cut from Shabby Vintage paper.  The Umbrella Man die is brand-new, too.   Linda's choice of techniques for the week is from Tim's 2007 12 Tags of Christmas series.    I did use a white tag with aqua and pearl dabbers.  Weathered Wood and Bundled Sage were my choices of distress inks. Check out all the other great creations on Linda's Studio L3 blog.

This is just lovely - love how the Umbrella Man just 'pops' out of the tag. Really must buy that die!

Hello Evelyn.
What a lovely Tag.
Please do not apologise for duplicating, you work is always inspiring, your colour choices here are wonderful. I have not made a tag for awhile.

Beautiful, BEAUTIFUL use of the technique, Evelyn! The colors are so pretty, and the Umbrella Man looks fabulous with his light-hued paint. You've made this your own, and made it wonderfully!
