Frozen Hugs

This is my sample for the CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers today which is to work the word "freeze" into our card. I have been hearing about the ice storms on the news and thought of that while making this card. I wanted to do a background with alcohol inks but was out of glossy/yupo paper. I did have a piece of white mylar though, so I thought why not. I followed Loll's tutorial and put down the alcohol inks on some aluminum foil then smooshed the mylar into the inks. It was dry almost the minute I turned it upright! For my tree used grey paper and added glitter marker to parts of the limbs then covered the tree with Wink of Stella Brush and attached on foam dots. I die cut the sentiment twice in a thin strip of glossy paper that I found and dragged one piece in some of the Eggplant ink then shadowed with the white. And, yes there are sequins to finish. Thank you for visiting today.
