Hello blogging friends! Today, I am very excited to be sharing a brand New product with you! Have you heard of Chameleon™ Color Tones Marker Pens?
This past January at the 2014 Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) Trade Show Chameleon™ Color Tones Marker Pens were selected as one of the Hot 20 Awards for 2014!!
I feel very fortunate and honored that I was chosen as one of the limited number of designers to test the markers. I have been playing with then for a little over a week now and I am really loving them. The markers are alcohol based but the really cool thing about them--they give you the power to change color! Chameleon Color Tones brings color control and simplicity to your art. Create stunning effects such as 3D, smooth transitions, highlighting, shading, graduations and blending, all with one pen. Each pen goes from as light as hint of a tint to rich tones, eliminating tonal gaps in your collection. One pen multiple tones! For more details you can click HERE to check out the website.
Check out all of the color tones you can get from just one pen! Pretty amazing! To achieve the different color tones the marker is inserted into the mixing chamber and then it is infused with the toning medium. This changes the color at the source and allows you to go from a hint of a tint to the true vibrant color of the markers.
The markers are easy to use and to put it very simply you just color with them--the markers to all the work for you. I love being able to get such a wide range of colors from one pen.
These are the five markers I used to color the daisy image--Y1, YO1, YG1, OL1, BR2. The beautiful daisy image is from CL-02004 Hello Daisy Cling Stamp from JustRite® Papercraft. After I colored the image then I used S6-010 5x7 Heirloom Legacy die template from Spellbinders Paper Arts® to die cut the image.
Before removing the paper from the die template I inked the inside edges with Ranger Spun Sugar Distress Ink.
I stamped the sentiment on to a piece of light yellow cardstock and then I die cut it using S4-425 Elegant Ovals die template. I edged the die cut with a little sparkle using my Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen. Then I added one of the Silver Filigree pieces from ButterBeeScraps. I cut the filigree piece in half and attached it to each side of the die cut.
I also used the Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen pen on the daisy to add a little bit of sparkle. I just love the shimmer from that pen!
For the base of the card I used a light yellow cardstock and for the mat I used pink lemonade. To create the mat I used S6-001 5x7 Matting Basics A die template.
If you have any questions about the markers please let me know. I would love to hear what you think! Don't forget you can click on all of the images to enlarge them and see all of the details.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
