Happy Tuesday!!! Sharing my first Easel Card Today!

Ok, so this week has been a first of many for me as far as creativity goes and I'm so proud to show you my first Easel Card that I made for a couple of challenges.  In fact there were many firsts that I tried with this card: 1. it's an Easel Card, 2.  I used a new technique using embossing in clear and then coloring in the flowers on the egg with water color pens and markers, 3. I used all new stamps and my new Martha Stewart glitter.  Thank you so much for looking!
I tried to get a good close up of the egg I made using clear embossing powder and my H2O brushes with ink, but this is as good as I could get!  I used my brown Stampin' Up Ink for all of the stamping.  The chick and the hot air balloon were colored in with my H2O brushes and various inks.  I used my stickles in white and blue for the balloon part and covered both the balloon and the chick in my accent gloss.  The flowers came from my stash and I spritzed them with White Glimmer Mist.  I destressed around the egg and my stamped sentiment ( which came in my 100 follower prize pack that I won earlier this month! ).  The pink paper was ran through my Sizzix Texture Boutique and Swiss dots cuttlebug folder.  Oh, and I almost forgot!!! The egg wobbles thanks to my first time use of my wobble stash!

Challenges for this card are:
K Andrews Simply Sunday Challenge: make a project with some sugar and spice!
Creative Sisters Challenge #3 : spring theme
Kleirrs Kreation : National Craft Month

Happy Crafting!
