A Chameleon Dahlia

Color Tops Dahlia by Jen Timko | Dahlia XL Stamp by Power Poppy, Chameleon Pens, Chameleon Color Tops, SplitcoaststampersI know this week has been full of posts from me but I have one more for you!  I was part of a Product Focus for Splitcoaststampers on Wednesday and now I have a little more time to share that with you.  As you may have noticed, I have been featuring the Chameleon Pens and Chameleon Color Tops lately.  These projects are part of the review of the Color Tops and today’s card is my final project for it.

I recently got this gorgeous large flower image, Dahlia XL by Power Poppy, and could not wait to have time to color it.  I knew immediately that my first time using it just had to be with the Color Tops.  Just to put the Chameleon system to the test, I used only one pen and one Color Top and the results are a real wow!  The depth of color on this is really extraordinary.  You can read my thoughts on the pens (and those of the whole Product Focus team) here:  Color Tops Product Focus

I created a short video showing a little more on how the pens work with the tops and how I colored part of this flower.  Sometimes it really is just easier to show you!

Once I finished all the coloring, I created a pretty simple card since the flower did all the work.  I stamped a sentiment from another Power Poppy set, Vibrant Thanks, using Versafine Onyx Black.  Then I put it on a layer of Wisteria Wonder (SU) that is a lovely match to the Lavender tones.  I cut the flower so that I could use both sections on the image layer (and yes, I did hesitate just a second before cutting into all that coloring).  A few sequins from Studio Katia and SU to highlight the Turquoise as a finish.

If you have any questions about these pens, I’m certainly happy to answer.  Just drop me a note here or send a comment over at Splitcoaststampers for the Product Focus team.  Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope you have a great weekend!

Stamp: Dahlia XL (Power Poppy), Vibrant Thanks (Power Poppy); Ink:  Momento Tuxedo Black, Chameleon Pens, Chameleon Color Tops, Versafine Onyx Black; Paper:  Thick Whisper White (SU), Wisteria Wonder (SU); Accessories:  Misti, Sequins (Studio Katia and SU), Mini Dimensionals, Dimensionals

FMS290 - Flower Hugs by Jen Timko | Mondo Hydrandgea Stamp and Dies by Ellen Hutson, Lovely Stamp by Ellen Hutson, Chameleon Color Tone Pencils, Chameleon Color Tone PensI have been waiting for today because I have something super awesome to share with you!!  Not only do we have a great sketch by the lovely Kim Singdahlsen at Freshly Made Sketches, I also finally get to share some information about a product review I did for Splitcoaststampers!

I have been using the amazing new pencils from Chameleon and I created this card by combining the Chameleon Color Tone Pens with the Color Tone Pencils.  Wow, they are great together!  I shared details and my thoughts on paper choices over at Splitcoaststampers so please check the entire review from the review team here:  CHAMELEON COLOR TONE PENCILS REVIEW

To help you understand a bit more of how the products work together, I made a quick video showing you how I did the coloring:

I made the flowers the star of the show but I could not resist adding a doily that seemed perfect for the sketch!  I used Night of Navy Baker’s Twine to coordinate with the blue in the flowers and thought this great sentiment from Ellen Hutson’s Lovely worked beautifully with the sketch.

The Freshly Made Sketches design team has created some beautiful work to inspire you and the Splitcoaststampers Review Team has samples that show many facets of these new pencils.  I’ll be back tomorrow with another card I created for the review.  Until then, have a great day!

Supplies:

Congrats by Jen Timko | Dotty Angles Stamp Set by Stampin' Up, Clearsnap Petal Point InkI get to share some projects I have been holding on to that are part of a product review for Splitcoaststampers.  Many of you know my long standing love of “Splitcoast” because it is always full of creative inspiration, techniques, tutorials and reviews.  I was asked to take a look at some Clearsnap Petal Point Pigment Inks that are being released in two new color groupings (Sunset and Boardwalk).  Please hop right over to see my thoughts and the analyses of some amazing stampers (and their projects!) – Product Review.  If you want to see the whole gallery of work with these inks, CLICK HERE.

In my review, I mention how I was playing with the ink and trying new things.  I reference a card on kraft (Crumb Cake) card stock and an ombré card.  I wanted to share those here too since I had not put them on my blog yet.  I love the pretty Sunset color family for my Congrats card, don’t you?!  The strong colors from the pigment ink are fabulous on this background stamp!Just for You by Jen Timko | Beautiful Day Stamp by Altenew, Clearsnap Petal Point InkIn my flower card I was able to use the Boardwalk ink to get a gorgeous look on my Crumb Cake paper.  I love how the Dune color is a match and yet shows up beautifully with the line image flower.  While you are over at  Splitcoast, take some time to look around and appreciate all the resources.  You’ll be glad you did!  Thanks for stopping in today.  See you soon!
