One in a Chameleon

This prompted some interest on Wednesday. It was on my desk, awaiting the last few bits of colour. It’s a Pink Ink stamp, if you’re familiar with them you’ll know they’re a bit larger than average, and always come with flourishes and a bit of text. If you’re keeping up with the trend for large cards, these are perfect. If you like an image that can be coloured, well, this range is for you.
I took this at the best angle I could get to show the shimmer paints. Some of the colours are actually Shimmer Paints, others are Pixie Powders. All used as paint with a water brush. It didn’t take hours to paint, and it was a nice thing to do sitting quietly for however long, but I won’t be making a stack of them. I like it almost as much just as a line drawing on a card. An exercise in embossing, for sure!
This is a 10 x 7 card, and with the swirls and flowers (which are separate stamps in the set), it makes a really nice statement card doesn’t it. If a chameleon can make a statement.

Fab cards, both with and without colour - it is big though, as you say it certainly makes a statement!

ROFL- we know what the fox says, what statement does the chameleon make??

Goodness, that colored chameleon is amazing. You are skilled with those shimmer paints and pixie powders. You did a fabulous job coloring and detailing this card. Even the colorles one is amazing, but the way you colored the first one really made me smile.

I like both the coloured and uncoloured version Julia.

It is gorgeous and I just love the flowers that came with the set. They are so unusual and so pretty, and beautifully coloured in. Can see what you mean in just using it as an embossed image but I think I would still colour those flowers to make the little fella stand out against them if leaving him embossed.
Love it!
