Tim Holtz has 2014 Mar Tag challenge and I created this Tag using what I had on hand since I did not have the egg, feather & other stamps he used and did not have the new tool that spritzers the ink from the TH Distress Markers. I made 2 Tags. This is the first with more coloring since it is stamped first. 2nd one is subtle in color since it was stamped 2nd without reinking. You can see details of TH by clicking on the TH challenge listed below.

Created this Easter/Spring Tag using:
1. manilla folder for Tag base
2. Tim Holtz Tag die
3. TH Distress Inks
4. Inky Antics stamp sentiment 'Have an egg-cellent Easter!'
5. Paper Smooches Just A Note feather quill
6. Papertrey Ink Birds of a Feather nest
7. Hero Arts Egg
8. Easter 2011 Happy Easter swirl
9. TH blending tool to smudge the images
10. TH Distress Markers
11. TH paper distresser
12. TH Rays Layering Stencil
13. Stamp N Plus Stardust chalk on stencil
14. homemade spritzer - squeeze bottle with water & blue paint inside
15. ribbon
