Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Snowy Tag using Studio Light's Ini Mini Zig Zag Journal Dies

We are inspired this week by a gorgeous freezing cold mood board over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  I live in a snowy part of the world, so I'm no stranger to being COLD!  I love coats and hot chocolate and big fluffy blankets, but this tag reflects how I feel when I have to drive in the snow.  Not a fan!

To make this tag, I cut out some fun die shapes from Studio Light's Ini Mini Zig Zag Journal dies.   I wasn't sure which shapes I would use, but this set has a lot of quirky borders and loops.  The die set also comes with a row of tags that are connected so you can make an accordion type of tag journal, but you can also cut the tags apart and use them separately.  I cut my pieces out of Strathmore Mixed Media paper.

Next I glued my shapes together and added this cute girl from Tim Holtz's Photobooth images.

I painted the tag in shades of icy blue with some green accents.  I also added some stenciled snow and drew a winter hat for the girl.  I used Distress Watercolor Pencils to color the hat.

I added the BRRRRR sentiment using alphabet stamps and put the hat on my little friend here.  I colored around the square picture image with Distress Watercolor pencils and this tag was done!

Here are the supplies I used which you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
