My First Easel Card

I've been seeing several of these cards on other blogs and thought I wanted to try. It was very easy to make and I will definitely make more in the future. The image I used for this card is a digi from Squigglefly. I just love the Shy bear images. I printed the image on photo paper and embossed with clear powder before the printer ink dried and it gives a really cool look. I colored using my Tim Holtz Distress inks and my nibs. When heat setting the ink it fades into the previous embossing  for another cool effect. Just a technique I did by accident on another image and trying to perfect it. Nothing like waiting till the last minute but I made this card following the SSHP05-Saturday Spotlight- In So many Words. Great challenge for this easel card as while being displayed it will say so much.
