Hi,friends. Happy Saturday!
This week the challenge theme at Our Creative Corner is
 your favorite Tim Holtz's technuique hosted by Linda Coughlin.
Here is my take on it.

This vintage photo on the tag is from Magic Moonlight Free Image.
And the technique I used is photo distress.
There is a step by step tutorial on Tim Holtz's blog.
To make the letters on the Philosophy tag white, I applied Gesso on it.
