Pretty-In-Pink

June 27, 2017

It’s time for a poetic party and you’re invited! This week join Cathy Andronicou as she explores the range of possibilities available with our newest collection, Poetic.

There’s nothing like a pink flower to bring to mind all things dainty and feminine. Cathy’s given our Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-545 Lustrous, this soft color scheme on her clean and simple card for today.

So how can you achieve this same fresh look? Cathy’s got ya covered with today’s tutorial!

STEP 1: Stamp Lustrous onto white cardstock using Memento Angel Pink ink.

STEP 2: Fuse the Chameleon Green Apple pen with the Olive Green Color Top for 3 seconds and color the leaf of the stamp, repeat this process until all the stems and leaves are colored.

STEP 3: Fuse the Chameleon Peony Pink pen for 8 seconds and color the flower petal. Repeat until all the petals, buds and berries are colored.

STEP 4: Use Chameleon pencil #22 to add detail to the leaves flipping between the darker and lighter shade.

STEP 5: Use the lighter end of Chameleon pencils 8 and 9 to add shade and dimension to the petals on the flower and berries.

STEP 6: Stamp the sentiment (30-433 Be…) with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

STEP 7: Add the Creative Die, 51-353 Cut Out Borders, to finish.

      HI Doris the Chameleon pen is an alcohol pen with a separate chamber with blending solution in, you put this chamber on the nib of the pen and leave it there for several seconds ( this is fusing) , this then lightens the colour of the ink in the nib allowing you to get blends of colour from light to dark with just one pen.

    This is beautiful. Thanks for showing the use of the pencils with the markers. I just purchased the Chameleon pencils recently because they seem to blend so well. I will try this technique with my Tombow markers and see if it works as well!
