With a Friend

Hello!

Today i am on the Art Impressions blog and we are having a fun hop today with Chameleon and Perfect Paper Crafting



On my card today i used the AI stamp set With a Friend WindowChameleon Earth Tone Set and Perfect Paper Crafting Mini Layers.

I started by stamping With a Friend Window in black ink on some white card stock. Next i colored the scene with my Chameleon Pens. I used the Earth Tone Set, which worked very well with this image! (i used a blue Copic Marker for the sky)

I took some real close up photo's so you can see the shading i did on the chair, cats, trees and ground. It took a little practice but i really like the result!!

Next i pulled out Perfect Paper Crafting's Mini Layers tool. I decided to mix up the widths and i mated the image with some colored card stock that matched the Earth Tone coloring i did. This is really handy tool for matting, SOOOO easy to use!!

I practiced a little first and a little tip for you, adhere your colored panel first! You really don;t want it to move on you!! To finish off my card i just adhered my layered panel to a square white card base. The whole card measures 4 x 4!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Make sure you stop by the Art Impressions blog to enter AI's giveaway and then hop on to Chameleon and Perfect Paper Crafting!!

  1. What a sweet image! I was wondering how those pens worked, I'm glad you like them. That chair brings back memories of my grandparent's place on the lake in Northern Wisconsin - great memories!
