Instructions:

1) Stamp image using Memento black onto Neenah cardstock.

2) Start coloring the image using the Brush Nib. First color the biggest flowers, infusing the nib for 8 seconds.

For the small flowers and areas, infuse for 2-3 seconds.

3) For the circles, use the Brush Nib and infuse for 5-7 seconds. For the flower center, color directly using the bullet tip.

4) Once this panel is ready, cut one edge using the die. Cut a piece of silver glitter paper using the same die.

Adhere the glitter paper behind the main panel.

5) Cut the word “hello” from the main panel and then cut 4 more times using a blue cardstock.
Stack and adhere all the hello words, keeping the main panel layer on the top. This technique is called in-laid die cutting with some dimension.

By Kasia Frezja
kasia said “I decided to color the film just at the edge of the petals because I like the natural look of this film, yeey :)”

Supplies: Chameleon Color Tone Pens: Aqua Marine (BG4), Bubble Gum (PK3), Rowlux Illusion Film.

Instructions:

1) Die cut big shot flowers from Illusion film, keep the waste as you can use as a stencil.


2) For the page separators glue together 2 larger flowers , make holes and then color around the edges of the petals with the Aquamarine Chameleon marker, use the bullet nib and don’t infuse to get a strong vibrant color.

VLUU L310 W  / Samsung L310 W

 

The page separators are now ready to add to your journal.

 

 

 

3)  To make a fridge magnet  paste 3 different sized flowers together, attatch the magnet behind the flowers and paint edges of petals with chameleon Bubble Gum pen. Add a sparkly gem to the centre to finish.

We just love how the petals grab the notes on the fridge, now you can make your own blossoming fridge designs!

 

Silk Chameleon Roses

Hi Crafters!
Monica here, sharing a newly found love “Silk Screen” art.  I received a couple of printed images on what is called silk screen and I thought to myself “oh goodness now what can I do with this?!”  Until now, I had never even seen the art before but, immediately I fell in love with.  So in love I am ordering a couple pieces, available here!
IMG_2333
As you color on the material with your Chameleon pens you will see the color begin to bleed through the material. I kept thinking oh my gosh, it is not going to stop, but there is an item called “Gutta” which is the gold lining you see along the outside of the image.  This lining or “Gutta” keeps the color from bleeding outside of the lines.

I used Chameleon Pen V04 to color the flower petals and YG3 and GR3 to color the leaves.  As I colored the petals I infused each time for approximately 10 secs and infused the petals for about 6 seconds.

I then took my blender pen laying down some of the solution to bleed through the purple color, this gives it lighter coloring.  Afterwards I used a couple of my Spellbinder dies to create the base of the card.  Matting the centerpiece with a piece of purple paper from Creative Memories.

I hope everyone has enjoyed my post and be sure to come back and check out the other amazing Silkcraft art cards from the design team.

You Are Loved Silk Card

Hi, Ilina here with this striking silk card.
ilinacrouse_chameleon_silk1_1

Supplies:

Silkcraft pre-printed silk design, Chameleon Deluxe Pen set, Basic Black card stock (Stampin’ Up!), White card stock (Neenah), Candy Dots (Stampin’ Up!), Magnolia vintage labels 9 stamp set (Just Rite stampers), Versafine onix black ink pad.
Instructions:

1) Start by coloring your silk image:

  • For the flowers I infused my pen for 20 seconds (brush nib) and used the following colors: Seville Orange OR4, Purple Grape PR4 and Aqua Marine BG4. For the Seville Orange flower; after I colored the petals, I went in with the Crimson Red RD4 pen (bullet nib) and with a flicking motion I colored the center of the the petals. Then went over the flower again with my Seville Orange and colored it infusing the pen 20 seconds (for each petal)
  • I colored the background with the Deep Black pen using the brush nib with no infusion.
  • Last but not the least I colored the frame, using the Olive Green pen OL3 with a 15 second infusion for each half section, then starting from the center I colored either towards the left or right, then repeated the same for the opposite side.

2) Cut your card base from black card stock measuring 4 ¼” x 11” (Scored in half at 5 ½” )
3) Cut 5 ½” x 4 ¼” piece of basic black card stock and cut a square 3 ¾” x 3 ¾” at ¼” from the top and sides. Then cut 4 ¼” x 4 ¼” white card stock and cut 3 5/8” x 3 5/8” square in the middle.
4) Trim your silk image to fit in the window you created in step 2.
5) Adhere the white window under the black one, so you can see little white trim. Then using glue dots adhere the silk image underneath.
6) Adhere the whole panel onto the card base.
7) Cut into a rectangle to fit the sentiment and stamp the sentiment.
8) Add your candy dots to the sides and adhere it to your card.

Chameleon Pens Meets Illusion Film

Hi everyone, Monica here sharing an interesting new and amazing product called Rowlux Illusion Film.

IMG_2113-1

This film is almost like a piece of plexi-glass but thinner and gorgeous in comes in a mulititude of patterns and is so shimmery. To really see the true beauty of it you must purchase some for yourself. You can emboss, cut, put through a diecut machine, and most important color them with your Chameleon Pens for an amazing color.

IMG_2108

 

Now on to my project. I created a white on white card with just a touch of color from my Chameleon Pens.

First I ran the material through my Sizzix Bigkick machine and punched out these cheery Lynn Magnolia flowers as shown here.

IMG_2109-1

I then took my Chameleon pen V04 and colored each flower. For the flower centers I infused for about 10 seconds so you could see a gradual color change in the flowers.

IMG_2111

Once I had all the flowers colored I then took my embossing gun and heat set the flowers. What is so nice is that the material begins to bend and curl the longer it is applied under the heat. This gave the flower an amazing shape.

IMG_2112-1

I then put all the elements together to give the finished card shown below.

I hope everyone enjoyed my post and thanks so much for stopping by!

Now color using Deep Violet towards the base of the petal using brush tip and feather strokes. Use Summer Sun marker and blend using brush tip and feather strokes from the base of the petal to the tip. This will blend the violet and orange.

4) For the green area around the flowers, use Spring Meadow brush tip and infusion time of about 40 seconds, color from near the flowers towards the corners. Repeat for all the 3 corners. Now take colorless blender and color in circular motion in the green area, from the flower side towards the corner. This will push the green color a bit and give it a nice uniform look.

5) For the four corner square, color using Blue Violet brush tip and infusion time of 8 seconds. For the orange stripes, first color using Warm Sunset marker brush tip and infusion time of 22 seconds. color from edge to centre.  Now take the Orange marker and color using the brush tip in the whole stripe.
Overlaying the colors allows you to make new colors!
