Colored Crackle

Welcome! For today's project I used the colored crackle technique on page 53 in the latest book by Tim Holtz, A Compendium of Curiosities Volume 3. I die cut the window from chipboard and then followed Tim's technique. For the view outside of the window I stamped the pine tree, an older woodblock stamp, on a scrap piece of manila cardstock and added a few snowflake remnant rubs. Next I adhered a little patterned paper, embossed brick and the window to a cabinet card. One holiday card down, a dozen or so to go. Thanks for stopping by!

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Good 'ol days over at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.
Happy Holidays over at Inspiration Emporium.
Compendium of Curiosities 3, Challenge 14 over at Studio L3. The Funkie Junkie Boutique is sponsoring this challenge with a $25 shopping spree.
