Fire and ice challenge

Hi all
I am a member of a fab facebook page called Showing off the Sue wilson style. It is run by a friend Paul Ford and he has set a challenge for anyone who would like to join in . The challenge is to use the fire and ice technique and make an easel card using sue wilson [ from  creative expressions ]dies,any shape any size just as long as it has fire and ice and is an easel card.

Here is my version. i used a very old striplet  die called  Tethered hearts and cut it 3x to make a background panel. i added a sheet of double sided adhesive paper to the front of it and turned it over to add the{FIRE} guilding flakes to the backside where the sticky shows through the die cut holes . a. To achieve the ice part you just peel off the paper from the front section of adhesive sheet you stuck on and add iced snow crystals to cover the entire sticky sheet .
then just use it for the background panel .Sue wilson has a video  tutorial on how to do thisFire and ice  technique on youtube ...easy and so effective

I used striped nasturtiums dies also by sue wilson to create the flowers but i used guilding wax to colour them .

The sentiment is a die from sue wilson from the  mini expressions range which has been also coloured with guilding wax.
The stopper part of the easel card is made by using the tethered hearts die which had the same fire and ice technique applied but i added an extra die cut to the top after i did the technique to make it look neater
