12 Days of Christmas Tags - Day 7

Have you ever just had "one of those days"?  Well today, was kind of like that for me.  I will apologize as there is not a video for Tag #7.  I accidentally deleted it when I went to copy it.  OOOPS!  It turned out cute too.  I can give you a picture though.

I distressed around the edges with Iced Spruce distress ink.  I used Barn Door and Stormy Weather Distress Markers Along with a water brush pen to "watercolor" the snowman.  I used Barn Door distress ink to stamp Merry Christmas and then ran over it with the water brush pen to give it the look of water coloring.  Crystal stickles finished off the look.  Other things I used include:

3 Girl JAM - Sterling Ribbon
#8 tag from Ranger
Saying from here.
Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
Black cardstock
Glossy Accents
Inkadinkadoo stamps - Ornate Christmas
Watercolor paper from the dollar bins at JoAnn'
Charm from eBay

Don't forget to link up a tag for the prize.  Doesn't the prize package look like fun? To clarify - the tag or tags you link up do not have to follow the 12 Days of Christmas theme.  Maybe next year I will limit it to this, but I feel that if I am limiting it to this theme, we should have started at the 1st of the month to allow you time to plan who you were going to give your little surprises to.  I want to see LOTS of tags this year though, so I can't wait to see what you make.  I am going to be linking my own tags to make it easier for you to click quickly on to scroll through the 12 days.

Rules -
1. Link up your tag. (Please no back-linking)
2. Be a follower.

I am also linking this tag to the 3 Girl JAM Christmas Inspiration Challenge.

Thanks for stppping by and remember to take some time to enjoy the little things today.

I copied your idea for a snowman for my tag #7!!! I used circle punches to make the snowman parts and then hand cut the scarf, hat and twig arms. Drew the face on with markers and used a snowflake punch and scallop punch to make the decorative element behind the snowman.
Loving all these tags inspirations from you!!
