Shepherd Watch: Chameleon Pen Collaboration

I am really excited to share my Stampendous! and Dreamweaver creations with you this week! We are doing a collaboration with Chameleon Pens, and we are showing off some of the wonderful techniques you can do with these unique pens. Did you know that we feature Chameleon Pens throughout our July catalog? Almost all of the samples in it feature these markers!

Chameleon™ Art Products is a company determined to change the way you think about marker pens. They pride themselves on having developed real innovation that enhances your ability to maximize your creativity. Their markers bring color control and simplicity to your art, and you can create stunning 3D effects, smooth transitions, highlights, and shading gradations all with one pen.
When you combine this simple coloring versatility with Stampendous® and House-Mouse Designs® images, you can create fantastic projects quickly. Stampendous stamps are beautifully enhanced by the simple blending made possible with this range of innovative markers. The colorless blending tool acts as a "foolproof" finish for your project. You won't believe the stunning range of colors that can be achieved with these markers, and the array of original projects you can create with the combination of Stampendous and Chameleon.


  1. I stamped the Shepherd Watch image on to Mixed Media White Paper, and then colored the image with the Chameleon Pens listed in the supplies. I tried to really showcase the color change factor of the Chameleon pens in the sand. I repeated the color change over and over again to give the sand depth. Once the image was colored, I cut the cardstock down, and rounded the corners. 
  2. Next, I cut olive green cardstock to 5" x 6 1/2" to create her card base. 
  3. I then took cream cardstock and inked the Quatrefoil stencil with Chestnut Roan ink directly from the pad. I trimmed the piece down and rounded the corners. 
  4. Then, navy blue cardstock was cut to fit as a mat around the Shepherd image. 
  5. Two coordinating pieces of May Arts ribbon was then cut to fit around the stenciled piece of cardstock, and they were glued down. Then, the cream cardstock was glued to the card base. 
  6. The navy and stamped image layers were attached to each other next, and then adhered to the card with pop up dots.
