Warm hugs.!

  Here's another winter based mixed media project :)
I couldn't resist using Olaf image hehe.. 
You can check out the full journal spread Here. This time around i challenged myself to bring out that feel in a smaller canvas & also increase the glitter factor a bit.. So here it is..

I started with a neena solar white CS for the base..
Gave a tissue paper coating with glue, colored using distress paints (salty ocean, picked raspberry) for the bg..
Added some splashes with snow marker & uniball signo pen (for controlled ones)
Stamped some random patters with versamark & embossed with wow clear sparkle EP
Fo that ice tree branch i used glossy accents, uniball signo silver gel pen & some gemstones..

Olaf is pretty much the same as my previous project..
I don't have a die or a die cutting machine for that matter ;) i wrote the word "hugs" in brustro white iridescent paper & fussy cut it..
Distressed the edges..

I took another cardbase slightly bigger than that & stuck all around with glitter tape (generously sent to me by dear friend Sathya,who specifically asked me not to hoard things ;) & which i happily obliged, yay)
Stuck the whole panel together with tacky glue..
& it's done :)

I made this for a swap challenge here at
& am glad my swap partner liked it :)

Hope you liked it. Do lemme know your comments. They mean a lot :)
