Altenew & Chameleon Pens Friend Friday Week 2 + Giveaway

by May Sukyong Park

Happy Friday! Welcome back to another Friend Friday with Chameleon Pens. We are sharing some colorful projects using the products from Altenew and Chameleon each Friday this month.

Each Chameleon pen goes from as light as a hint of a tint to rich tones, eliminating tonal gaps in your collection giving you the ability to create stunning effects such as 3D, smooth transitions, highlighting, shading, gradations and blending, all with one pen. It brings colorful control and simplicity to your project.


To celebrate this fantastic collaboration, we are giving away THREE $30 gift certificates to our online store. Three winners will be chosen at random from the comments left on any Friend Friday blog posts and will be announced on October 7th, 2016. Don’t forget to visit the Chameleon Pens blog for a chance to win a 5 pen pack of your choice.

Today we have Sveta and Lydia sharing their amazing projects using Chameleon Pens which work brilliantly with our floral stamp sets.


Hello, it's Sveta here! I'm so excited to share my project for Altenew and Chameleon Pens collaboration! I have the Cool Tones Set of 5 Chameleon Pens which includes my favorite colors and decided to use it with my favorite Persian Motifs stamp set. I like the ombre look that I can easily achieve with these markers. The colors are vibrant and go well on paper.


I did a heat embossing of my flowers before coloring and used coordinating Persian Motifs dies to cut them out. For my next step, I used the Dodec Star die set and adhered all parts on a cardstock base. Then I used “Thank you” phrase dies from the Majestic Bloom die set and cut out the sentiment from Dodec star plate.


I've colored a piece of cardstock with Blue Violet (BV4) Chameleon pen and adhered it on the back. Then I filled the sentiment “pool” with Glossy accents.

Altenew Striped Florals and Chameleon Pens_1Hi, there everyone! Lydia here and I'm so excited to share a card I made using Altenew products and the 5 Pen Pastel Tones from Chameleon.

Altenew Striped Florals and Chameleon Pens_2I stamped images using Striped Florals with  Sapphire ink. I stamped and masked the images around a pencil guideline to create a wreath-like image. The Crisp Inks work well with the Chameleon pens with not much bleeding at all.

Altenew Striped Florals and Chameleon Pens_4I used the gray from the set to color the leaves and berries- going from light at the tips/tops to dark at the base. I used Bisque for the flowers and buds. I really like how soft the blending is. The sentiment is from the Floral Shadow stamp set.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
