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 2nd with subtle coloring since it is stamped second. 1st  one is bolder in color since it was stamped 1st .You can see my 1st Tag by clicking here. TH only allows for 1 entry but I wanted to do the 2nd one to see how the subtle look Tag would look. You can click here to see the details of TH Tag.
