12 Tags of Christmas {day 4}

I can't believe I made it through day 4. I've also been spending a lot of time on a new painting for our living room. I like to change up the artwork pretty often, so this time 'round I needed something teal and red. I'll have an update on it tomorrow!

One more piece of personal news: I have a job interview this week!!! You have no idea how many jobs I have applied to in the past 5 months, and not even a single response... but this is a real job, related to my skills and education! Even if I don't get offered the position, I'm just really excited somebody finally recognized me :) So keep your fingers crossed, please!

Ok here is Tim Holtz's tag for day 4...

And here's what I made...

my tag day 4
What I did:
-With a white cardstock tag base, I covered my craftmat in blue and white water colors, swirled them around and then placed the tag on top of them all.
-Once the tag was dry, I stamped blue snowflakes (inkadinkado) and a white flower in the top right corner (inkadinkado)
-I cut out four snowflakes using a Lettering Delights Fancy Snowflakes SVG set, glued them along the edge, and covered them with Glossy Accents
-I cut the snowman with a free file from Make the Cut software and my Silhouette SD. The '25' was also cut with my Silhouette.
-I put blue and white ink on my craft mat, put water droplets to swirl it around, then dipped my snowman on top so it has a light blue uneven coloring. The '25' was inked blue, covered with silver Stickles, then covered with Glossy Accents and glued onto the snowman.
-I added blue and white Stickles to the snowman, gave him a scarf with Stickle buttons, and added two buttons to the bottom right corner.
