I don't know anything about Chuck, but I'm so glad you picked this technique! I have Iridescent Ice ep on order, but in the past I have used DD and clear ep. I tend to overheat it though, it doesn't sparkle as much when I do. I hope the II EP works better for me.
I'm going to try and get to this challenge early tomorrow morning! I think it will go great with the Prima's ways to use it challenge!
Here's one from my gallery and I used regular cardstock. I don't think it allows the diamond effect to show up as well as glossy would but I wasn't smart enough to read all the directions when I tried the technique. On Regular Cardstock
Also for anyone that has a Micheal's near by, they do have a irredescent ice look alike that works just as well, here is what I posted in another thread:
I did get some Stampendous embossing powder that is called Kaleidoscope, and it is a very similar match for Irridecent Ice. The one I got from Micheal's is a 1 oz jar and I used a coupon. I find that I can not tell the difference when it is on the card. Now, I do have both of these, and the stampendous equivilant of Hologram Highlights as well. As always these are just my opinions. I had a hard time finding the Kaleidoscope when this one ran low. One thing I noticed, it is harder to tell with the Kaleidoscope when it is heated ok. I have burned it more then once, with the SU one you can definately tell when it is heated and set.

I just did a search and Julia S uses 50-50 ratio. Give it a try and report back.
I do???? Maybe it was julia s (all small letters)
Anyways...I love this technique so it will be lots of fun. I have also done it with dazzling diamonds and the heat and stick powder and just on whisper white cardstock instead of the glossy. Wish I'd checked this thread last night!!
I used the kalidescope EP though I don't know how well it shows up in the scan. Also, in honor of the newly posted 2006 retirement list, I dusted off my Bug Builders set which retired last year. Dusted Retired Bugs
