Love You

 Hello all!  Another example of my Fire and Ice Technique here.  I started with a piece of black card and covered it with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I die cut two of Beeca Feeken's  Lacey Tier dies in black card and cut them in half with my papercutter.  I peeled the backing paper off of my sticky sheet, exposing the adhesive sheet.  I attached each of the halves of my die cuts to the four side edges.  I used the waxy side of the backing paper to burnish each of the die cuts down firmly.  I covered the remainder of the sticky sheet with the Summer Meadow gilding flakes.  Next I covered the entire background with another sheet of sticky adhesive.  I peeled back the backing paper and covered the entire piece with Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow.  I used a piece of Rubit Scrubit pad to refine the Iced snow and remove any excess.  I matted it with a thin white layer and a wider black mat.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the Delightful Circles die.  I cut a black mat layer from the Delicate Doily set to give it a bit a of a lacy backdrop.  I added some flat back pearls to the sentiment and the card corners.  A double white pierced mat finished it off.  Finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Your fire and ice technique is so so lovely and obviously very popular with Wilsonians.
