Tag Tuesday - The Manly Tag!

New Players- IMPORTANT - please remember to leave a comment when you post your art tag on Mr. Linky! It sends me an email that alerts me you have posted a tag!

There were so many lovely pink and green tags this past week! Thank you for playing.

In honor of Father's Day coming up here in the US, let's make a Manly Tag! Make your tag with a Masculine theme.

I cut up a copy of an old humorous postcard I had and touched it up with Micron pens and brush pens. I stained the tag with a color wash and distressed inks, used Micron pens again and added some ribbon. The metal pieces are from Tim Holtz, except for the brad. For any readers who may not know, back in the day when automobiles were becoming popular, some of them had to be cranked to start and some had a new fangled starter button you just had to push. The cranks were difficult, sometimes even causing injury to the person trying to turn it. I love the drawings!

This is the first tag I ever made for a Tag Tuesday challenge! I've had a rough week with health issues and I hope you don't mind if I reuse a tag from a year ago. 

Thank you for visiting the other artists - we all appreciate a kind word (me too!).
