Blog Hop

Hello All "Hoppers"!

Today Art Impressions is doing a blog hop with Chameleon Pens and Perfect Paper Crafting

You should have arrived here from Perfect Paper Crafting

Below is my finished cards using the Ai Little People stamp called "Little Sprout" (Sku# 4317). I think this little character is absolutely adorable!

This was the first time I have used the new Chameleon Markers. I choose to use the Cool Tone set. They are really neat as you can get multiple colours from one pen. 

  The first step with the pens is to choose between 2 nibs: the soft brush or bullet nib. Then you insert the marker into the mixing chamber which holds a blending solution. The longer you hold it in the solution the lighter the color will start off. You can sort of see the color variation from light to dark on my scrap piece of paper. You can view a tutorial on the Chameleon website or click here.

It takes a bit of practice but it's really fun to play with these pens!

I was so excited to try out the Perfect Paper Crafting tool called Perfect Layers Mini and the Perfect Cutting Mat. Wow I was very impressed with how easy it is to cut perfect borders around your projects. You just line up the "catch lip" against the edge of your art and using a knife press firmly while cutting along the edge! There are 8 different border sizes! I don't think I'll use my paper trimmer ever again LOL!

Here's the simple design on the inside of my card.

Markers used:
E00, E11, R20
BL3 (Blue sky)
BG4 (Aqua Marine)
PR4 (Purple Grape)
