Stampotique Designers Challenge #47

The theme this fortnight over at Stampotique Designers Challenge is Altered Items.

I've had this clothing tag sitting in my bedroom for months and months (and months - the store closed down about 6 months ago...!!) and I have been reluctant to throw it out (nor the other 3 or 4 that were sitting alongside it) because you just never know when you might just need one for something.  Thanks to Stampotique Designers Challenge for providing the perfect opportunity to use one!

This is the before photo.....


 And this is the after photo....


** Edited to add: This was chosen as a favourite

Pretty cool huh?  Don't forget if you want to join in the challenge you have to use Stampotique stamps :)
Thanks for stopping by :)
