Chameleon Pens and Vellum

Did you know that Chameleon Pens are perfect for parchment and vellum, the ink dries quickly and will not crinkle the paper unlike other coloring mediums. Parchment and Vellum also have the added advantage of giving longer blends as you are coloring on a slick surface.

Annette shows us how easy it is to use with this Birthday card.

Vellum Birthday 1.2

Supplies:- Chameleon Pens: Fawn (NU3), Bisque (NU1), Spring Meadow (YG3), Bark (BR4), Hot Cocoa (BR2), Crimson Red (RD4), Warm Sunset (YO3) and Sky Blue (BL3).  Vellum, The Paper Nest Birthday Balloon Ellie, Mama Elephant Woodland Gifts, Laser Printer, Tim Holtz Burlap stencil, Tsukineko Radiant Neon and Memento tuxedo black ink pad, Neenah textured card-stock and Glue Dots.


1. Print digital image on vellum using digital printer.

2. Color digital image. When coloring you will see that you do not need to infuse the color because it transfers on the vellum light. For shading just layer the colors.

3. Trim colored image.

4. Make card blank from card stock. Using stencil and ink pad create a colorful background.

5. Adhere the colored and trimmed image to card using glue dots. Finish the card by stamping the sentiment.

Annette chose not to infuse the image but if you use the darker tones you can achieve some amazing blended effects, why not give it a try!
