Here is another image that I colored using my new Chameleon Pens. I love the effect I got on the dress using just one pen. Chameleon Pens can also be used with other brands of alcohol markers. I also use the Chameleon Pens to color her hair, skin, shoes, and the waterlily.
This is one of the first card I made with my new Chameleon pens. They are alcohol markers like Copics or Spectrum Noirs but the difference is that you can get several different tones of a color from one marker. Like all alcohol markers, there is a learning curve to these but its not that difficult to get a beautiful shading effect. Chameleon pens can be used with other brands of alcohol markers.
I dug out one of my MFT Flopsey stamps to practice coloring with the Chameleon pens. The background paper is something I made several years ago with my sister's Tim Holtz re-inkers, alcohol drops, and metallic pens. This piece does look like a heavy rain storm.
The sketch is from is from Split Coast Stampers SC597 and SC600.
