You’re One in a Chameleon!

Happy Monday! It’s been raining all weekend with more rain to come over the next few days. So this seemed like a good day to play catch up and post the supplies I used recently on a card from last week’s Art du Jour at The Queen’s Ink.

This one really is quick and easy to put together. At first, I thought about coloring the chameleon in rainbow colors, but decided instead to stencil a rainbow background using a stencil from The Crafters Workshop. I kept the Copic colors simple as well and added a little Wink of Stella for a bit of shimmer.

Can you believe it? I made a card with only three markers!

Below are the supplies I’ve used for today’s project. All items were personally purchased except those marked with an asterisk (*) . I never share a product I do not like. Read more.
