Wahooo…… I’m BACK …with a splash !!

Well I finally got time to really sit down and actually color, admittedly it was a quickie session… but I got to color and dang but it feels good. Here is a really cool image by Cute As A Button “Bathtub Mermaid” and as if you didn’t guess already… yup I gave my new Chameleon Pens Color Tops a whirl. Add on a splash of Sakura Gelly Roll for some glitz and glam and detailing.. and voila!

I mounted her on a ply wood art tile/canvas  using double sided sheets of adhesive tape and inked up the edges with 3 tones of Color Smart Ink pads.  I’ll add a protective waterproof layer before hanging her in the bathroom.

This is my challenge image for July for the Cute As A Button Challenge Blogspot… come on over and play

HAPPY MAIL!! Chameleon Color Tops Kickstarter Kit

Super excited to finally have my Chameleon Color Tops from the Kickstarter program a few months back.  No big unboxing .. lil man tore into this box the second we got it haha.  He likes Happy Mail as much as his momma does.

Ok..so for those who of you who don’t know what a Kickstarter program is.. a brief explanation.  Kickstarter is used by companies to raise funds to get new products into production and I guess probably gauge the public’s response to an idea to see if it is worth continuing with before committing to Big $’s  in production.

Anyone who was involved in this one will tell you… the public responded… in a big way lol.  this project was open for funding for a month.. and met it’s initial funding goal in the first 2 hours of  going live.  If you are a Chameleon Pens fan… that would come as no surprise to you at all LOL.

Various reward levels are available to suit funding partners of all budgets.  Funding commitments started at $10,  all the way up to a whopping $400+ for those people who just wanted it all. Each funding level had it’s own rewards associated with it.  Basically you select how much you want to pay in to fund the project and you get the rewards on offer for that level BEFORE they go on sale to everyone else.  Much as I would have loved to go all out for the “LOT”, I just didn’t have the funds available to do that * sigh.  But I did jump in and get my  Color Tops… and then on top of the regular rewards there were also goal rewards. As funding offers flew in .. a new goal level  reward was added in…so on top of my color tops… I also received a bunch of extra goal rewards. The detailer pen, an additional blender pen, extra tips and color cards… there was also free online classes offered which we all received  when the funding period closed.

Ok so..what did I pay? and what did I get …  a $70 pledge got me the full range of  the brand new product “Color Tops” plus the extras mentioned above.  If you know what tip to tip blending is, and already know the concept behind how Chameleon Pens work…. then this will  be easy to understand.  Instead of coloring with one color and achieving your tones with the blender tops on each pen…. you can now tip to tip blend EASILY, ACCURATELY AND ….in COLOR!!!   yup.  The exact way you blend with your current Chameleons using clear blender.. but in color.

I am not going to gab on forever about this right now… expect a new post real soon, probably with video. If I can find a quiet minute to make a basic one I will.

One Happy Crafter… thanks Chameleon Pens!!!  comes as no surprise you blew the funding goals out of the water again this time.  And for all of you who missed out on the Kickstarter again this time… The new products will be available soon 🙂  If you haven’t seen these pens before…and this is your  first time hearing the name … WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN !!!!  lol

Quickie Grad Card & a fond farewell to KennyKStamps

I had a request for a last minute graduation card last week, and this was what I made her. I already knew the perfect image for it, “Graduation Girl” by KennyK the young lady in question looks just like her. So I grabbed that… and a few more * whistles innocently. Hey Cmon.. the store is closing … and they are such a deal… and I had a few spare bucks in my paypal…. How could I NOT go shop the closing down sale and grab as many as I could before they are gone?? what am I .. crazy, me an lil man love our KennyK’s ??? LOL

Ok so here it is.. it’s a super simple card Image was print and cut on the Cricut, then colored with Chameleon pens and a detailer.  Mounted on a panel of this cute Preschool type paper with apples and math  on it… and mounted on a simple top fold card.  The inside had a  simple sentiment and  a money pocket added..and I used these fab foiled star and balloon stickers that I have in my stash from Walmart that I got on clearance.  Absolutely love those foiled stickers, so useful.  I added a few more balloons and stars to the edge of the envelope.


Be sure to drop over and check out the fab closing down sale and Facebook party over at KennyK stamps…
