Hi everyone and welcome! Over on the IndigoBlu blog we are taking part in a special Friend Fridays blog hop with the lovely people from Chameleon Pens. This is the second week of the series with Nikki Killinger and myself getting the chance to share our projects with you.
Having taken the time to play with these lovely Chameleon Pens I decided to showcase a couple of uses for them on this mixed media canvas. Opting to stick with blue/green tones I stamped the Dinkie Dragonfly onto watercolour cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black and blended the colours across the wings and body. Once dry I blended a little Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink across them for a more vintage look and added Glossy Accents for added shine. The die cut flowers were created with the same watercolour papers, pens and inks, this time with all over colouring that would be great on a background and stamping with the map image from the A5 Grand Tour II set. After layering up lots of stamped textiles, surfaces, texture paste and gesso, dilute puddles of IndigoBlu Acrylic paints were applied. It didn't take long to get to grips with these wonderful pens and I enjoyed seeing what they could do when combined with stamps and die cuts. Here are some close ups of the various elements;
With more to see from Nikki and the rest of the team I hope you'll take the opportunity to hop over to the IndigoBlu blog and Chameleon Pens blog to see many more fabulous projects and find out more about these lovely pens.
