Chameleon Color Tone Markers with JustRite Papercraft Clear Stamps, ButterBeeScraps Filigrees, and a touch of Mixed Media - Love the Simple Things Card

Hello everyone!  Today, I have a beautiful floral rose card using the New Chameleon Color Tones Markers with a touch of mixed media.  This is the card I was planning on posting last week but my youngest son was sick with a really bad cold which turned in to an ear infection and he was home from school for a couple of days.  All is well now--he is feeling better and back to school.

Here is the card that I designed.  I love how the floral image turned out and it was so easy to color using the Chameleon Color Tones Markers.  With the different shades of pink and green how many different colors of markers do you think I used?  I think you might be surprised.  :)

Check it out--only 2 markers!  Are you surprised? I love how many color tones can be achieved with the Chameleon Color Tones Markers!  The Deluxe pen set includes 22 markers--20 Color Tone Markers, Black Fine Line Detail Pen, and a Colorless Blender Pen.  These are permanent alcohol ink pen system.  They are double-ended and have a super soft brush nib on one end and a bullet nib on the other end.  There is a refillable mixing chamber that has toning medium in it.  When the mixing nib and marker nib touch in the chamber this is where the magic happens and the color changes giving you multiple tones in one marker. 

After I colored the image I then I die cut it using S5-131 Matting Basics A from Spellbinders Paper Arts®.  Next I used a doily stencil and applied Liquitex Light Modeling Paste.  When the paste was dry I inked around the floral image using Ranger Distress Inks-Antique Linen, Spun Sugar.

Here is a close up so you can see more of the detail from the stencil.

I wanted to modeling paste to pop a little more so I used white acrylic paint and dry brushed over parts of the paper.

Here is a close up so you can see more of the details.  I used a sentiment from the same stamp set and Rich Cocoa ink to stamp.  Then I used S4-462 Labels Thirty-Nine to cut/emboss the label shape.  I added Bronze Filigree Corners HD901-B and a Bronze Butterfly Charm.  I added some paints to the filigree pieces and buffed them so some of the metal would show through.  Then I used SS10 Clear AB Pointy Back Crystals and SS16 Clear AB Flat Back Crystals to accent the pieces.  To finish the card I added a few AB sequins.

Here is a close up of one of the corner filigree pieces.

I just love how this card turned out!  Please be sure to check out the New Chameleon Color Tones Markers.  Also--Monique, owner of ButterBeeScraps is on vacation so the store is currently closed but will reopen October 3rd.  I can't wait for her to open back up--she has new goodies to add to the store so be watching for an announcement on that.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
