Mirror Stamping with Chameleon Pens

Tanya shares the Mirror stamping technique with us today, combined with Chameleon pens.


By Tanya Batrak



Tanya explains her inspiration for this technique” I like that Chameleon pens can draw on different surfaces, and vellum is one of them. This ability will help you if you want to try a mirror stamping technique.”

Materials Used: Chameleon Color Tones Deluxe Set; Warm Sunset (YO3); Olive Green (OL3); Deep Violet (VO4); floral stamp; watercolor paper; American Crafts ribbon.


  1. Stamp image several times on a scrap piece of paper to make a border. If you are happy with the result, now you can proceed on a card.BATRAK_29march_technique_step1-5
  2. Make 4 ¼ x 7”card from card stock.
  3. Draw a horizontal line with the pencil to divide the front side of a card in two.
  4. Stamp image several times over the pencil line to make a border.
  5. Color each image with the brush tip using Warm Sunset, Olive Green and  Deep Violet infusing each color before coloring for 3 seconds.
  6. Cut a piece of vellum (3×7”).BATRAK_29march_technique_step5-6

  10. Die cut the flower petals or cut them with scissors. Color each petal with the brush tip  using Deep Violet infusing the color before coloring for 5 seconds. Add strokes with the same color with the bullet tip. Adhere all petals together. Color the center of a flower with Warm Sunset and adhere it on the flower.BATRAK_29march_technique_step10-11

      Yes we were intrigued by this method too, of course you can still do it the more traditional way; stamp onto a palin rubber stamp and then transfer from the plain stamp onto the paper.
