Snow White the Warrior

Did you know that Snow White was actually a bad ass warrior? True, we all love the traditional story of her gentle ways and her little dwarf friends, but let's really think about this. Why did the Evil Queen envy her so much? It wasn't just because she was the "fairest of them all". 

Yes, she had a natural beauty that all noticed, and was dearly loved by the seven dwarfs and all her woodland friends, but she was also extremely strong both mentally and physically. So she was a huge threat to the Evil Queen. 

You can see it in her eyes and stance. Don't mess with Snow White!

But the Queen just HAD to try and bring her down, like she would be that special if there were no Snow White.

And we all know what happens after the "Evil Witch Outside" gets her way and poisons Snow White. In my version it occurs right at the end of winter during a snowy day. 

For this project, I used the Double Layer Window - Ornate, so that I could add a layer of 12x12 Clear Plastic for Windows along with some Golden - Mica Flakes - Pearl  and Dimensional Snow.  This gave my window an extra cold appearance. 

When you open the tin and look inside, you can see that spring has officially arrived and soon Snow White's Prince will come and take her away to live happily ever after. 

Below you can see how I gave depth to the sleeping Snow White by cutting around the back of her pillow and inserting some paper flowers. Don't be nervous to cut within an actual image. It can really add so much to a project. 

So there you have some ideas for using a Blank Altoids Tin. Be sure to check out all of the different Altoid frames and inserts that Alpha Stamps carries. You might even come up with a fairy tale of your own!
