Sizzix/Tim Holtz Mixed Media dies caught in crystal

Hello again

I experimented with the caught in crystal technique recently, and this is the result

I used liquid floor polish instead of crystal lacquer (which Sue Wilson uses).
After coating an acetate sheet with the Polish,  I sprinkled grey glitter into it, then added Brusho crystals before embedding tissue into this and letting it dry overnight.

Making the card was quite simple, by using Tim's media dies to cut out the overlay, then shading the outer edges with a toning distress ink.

I assembled the card using foam squares for dimension,  adding a bow and beads and a 'Happy Birthday' phrase which consists of several layers of die cuts and finished with a coating of glossy accents.
