Dashing Through The Snow

Happy Wednesday Everyone!
It's time for a new challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge Blog
'Sistah' Marsha is our hostess today and the theme she has chosen is:

Dashing Through The Snow!

What a fun theme and I decided to make the snowflake the
window looking out onto my wintry scene.  I hope you like it!
 

This Impression Obsession 'Large Snowflake' die (DIE093) makes the perfect window looking out onto this wintry cabin in the woods scene.  The stamp is by Inkadinkado (#99417) and I've probably had it for at least 10 years.  

After die cutting my 'window' I ran the panel through my Sizzix with a Carta Bella snowflake embossing folder.  After everything was popped up using 3M dimensional tape, I added Star Dust Stickles to each snowflake.


The sentiment is part of the Sue Wilson Festive Collection 'Peeking Snowflake' die set.
Sue Wilson Designs - Festive Collection - Peeking Snowflake
 And, the sky was colored with a makeup sponge and a little blue chalk dust.  For the cabin, I colored it ever so lightly with a Spectrum Noir alcohol marker.
