Altenew & Chameleon Pens Friend Friday Week 2 with Sveta and Lydia

Hello! It's Marika here today to have fun with the Earth Tones Set of Chameleon Pens. Aren't these pens a lot of fun? I tried no-line coloring technique and added details with my pencils. I love this technique and I usually combine other alcohol markers but this technique worked so well with these pens as well.

First, I stamped the flower images from Bamboo Rose set with Altenew Blush Crisp Ink onto a smooth card stock. Then I added my base layer with Chameleon pens: I used BR2 (Hot Cocoa) for the flower and OL3 (Olive Green) for the leaves. I used the lightest tones from each color and left the lightest areas to be almost white.

Then I added details with my pencils. For the background, I stamped a few flowers from Bamboo Rose set with the same Altenew Blush Crisp Ink. I added a few sequins and used Label Love set to add my sentiment.

I wish you the most beautiful day! Enjoy!

I thank you for the opportunity to possibly win a set to create my designs with. I am a colorist on a few design teams. These would showcase your designs so beautifully. Keeping all my FINGER AND TOES CROSSED!! Thanks for the giveaway.
