TIO #147 - waste/rubbish, chipboard and male

It's Silvia's choice of recipe at DragonsDream Tag It On this fortnight - and she has requested Waste (or rubbish), chipboard and male theme. Don't forget you need to use at least one real stamp on your tag, and have fun!

I have been making a secret project for something and had need of sandpaper. So the used sandpaper is my waste element - I die cut "umbrella man" by Tim Holtz using it, and then added some distress ink.

My tag background is my stamp - it's the large number collage stamp also by Tim Holtz stamped in Chipped Sapphire distress ink, and Iced Spruce applied over and round the edges.  I sprinkled some water from my fingers allowing it to wicker a bit before drying, to give an appearance of raindrops. (they don't show up in the picture very well).

I took some chipboard letters to spell out rain man (didn't have room for umbrella, lol!) and painted them black.
Hope you have fun with this challenge - good luck!

Loving the use of sandpaper - and it probably sharpened your die too ;)

I think Rain Man suits him better than umbrella man actually.
