    Great cards Annette. I love these sentiments too. I saw a great video tutorial on Stamping Made Simple (with Stacy) a while ago on Chameleon markers and I find them intriguing. I don’t have ANY alcohol markers yet so they are also a possibility. (Still comparing and doing my homework BEFORE I begin my collection!)

      Chameleon pens come in two parts Iona, a mixing chamber with toning medium in and a dual tip pen, the term infusing refers to placing the mixing chamber on either end of the pen nibs and letting the toning medium infuse into the nib, you can see a video that explains it more at http://www.chameleonpens.com

    I can’t wait to get to try these pens. How nice to have just one pen rather than having to pick between several shades when trying to give dimension to a project.
    The feathers are beautiful. the balloons are fun – with their patterned background.
    thanks for sharing.

  11. Vicki Smith

    I am desperate for Chameleon pens but can’t afford them right now. All of the projects are so neat and the gradation of color seems easy to achieve with these pens. Thank you for sharing!

  12. Niki G.
