Tag Tuesday-Men

Meet Jacob Fairdealer seller of tea and coffee.

The background for Mr. Fairdealer was made by adding linen, brushed corduroy, and vintage photo distress inks to the tag, stamping with a Studio 490 fly speck bg, and topping it off with Glimmer Mist in pecan. I then embossed the tag with one of Tim's new Texture Fades embossing folders and sanded. Other stamps from Artful Illusions and Pink Paisley.

You can see all of the tags for the Tag Tuesday Challenge on Louise's blog Kard Krazy.

How creative Sarah! I'll take a pound of earl Grey and a pound of Sumatra blend! LOL. Love your coffee and tea peddler tag!
and some day hope to have some of those texture plates too!

I did not think you'd struggle with a masculine tag at all. Your background is very distinctive, I immediately clicked on it to see details. Thanks for sharing those. Wonderful tag!
