Recessed Window tutorial at SCS. Then it was a hop, skip and jump to creating the scene with a window! Hope you like it :) Deets are below...
Image: Colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I removed the string of lights from the image (by pasting the image into Paint and using the eraser function to wiped out the lights, then pasted it back into a word doc to print). I did this so I could use fun flock on the moose to make it look like he's covered in a blanket. Also used fun flock on the hat the mouse is sleeping in. The present image was colored, cut out, stickled, and popped up. The background of the image was sponged with Marigold Versacolor ink
Papers: (all SU! on this one) Image printed on Whisper White, window cut out of Whisper White (distressed with brown ink), card front is Chocolate Chip (embossed with Distressed Stripes folder), "bushes" are Handsome Hunter cut out with scalloped circle punch and trimmed to fit, card base is Real Red
Techniques: Window was cut out using my Cricut. See toot on SCS for how to make the recessed window card. I modified mine a bit to fit what I needed.
Layout: Mine! :) Size is 5"x7"
Embellies/Other: White Fun Flock was also used on the "bushes" to look like snow. The string of lights was created by punching small ovals (with a Fiskars hand punch) out of glitter card stock and gluing a small rectangle of black paper to the bottom of the oval. A piece of paper cord was colored black and the "lights" were glued directly to it on the image. [I tried using the smallest plastic Christmas tree light I could find at Ben Franklin but they were still too big...in hindsight, should've made a bigger card, but oh well!]
Here's close of up the window a bit more from the side.
TFL looking and can't wait to see what wonderful creations you all come up with for this image! Aloha, Kim
