Karma Karma Karma Karma Karma Chameleon
You come and go
You come and go
Loving would be easy if your colours were like my dream
Red, gold and green,
Brown, pink and blue--ooo-ooo-ooo
Okay, okay...I'm being goofy (I do, however, confess to loving this song...), but the song fits so well with my current dabblings with my Chameleon pens. I'm moving closer to 'liking them a lot,' however, that whole 'how long do I have before the 'fusion' runs out' still has me baffled. It's not as big an issue when colouring small images/sections. On larger chunks though...eeee! Speed colouring! Fusion frenzy! The results, as you'll see on a couple cards, are...ummmm, somewhat erratic. I've also figured out that 'deeper' colours need much longer fusing than lighter (light bulb moment for me...likely obvious to most), especially the blues and purples. They seem to lose their 'fuse' quickly (I can relate *grin*)
My husband-packed mobile crafting unit (seriously, how sweet is that!), included my STAMPlorations stamps, which I'll be sharing here, some Walter and Winnie, and Reverse Confetti stamps/dies, a variety of Christmas goodies (which, given the Christmas challenges up and running, was a wise choice) and a smattering of my 'always use' dies. Dewdrop inks came along, as did a couple embossing folders and my cuttlebug.
What didn't join the group - and I'm doing relatively fine without - is coloured cardstock or patterned paper. Only white. I'm finding using that solely a bit of a challenge, but given the Chameleon pens and inks, I can make 'colour' in other ways. If the roads weren't so sketchy, and the temperatures not so frigid, I'd venture across the city to see my 'local' scrapbook gal. Maybe on the weekend; maybe not. Until then...white it is. Hope you don't mind the 'same old, same old' for a while...
My first card, inspired by Happy Little Stampers January Sketch Challenge,
features two STAMPlorations flowers, coloured quite simply (let's not talk about how many tries wound up in recycle...).
My second card was sparked by CAS(E) this Sketch #104,
and an desire to stuff my face with sugary treats *grin* SSTAMPlorations donuts - delicious!
My third card is 'just because'...prompted by a desire for sugar, sugar and sugar...
Isn't that a sweet row of macarons? Can you believe I've never eaten such a treat? Seriously! Where have I been!
All my cards are heading to STAMPlorations Anything Goes Challenge
Today, we have a furnace guy coming to give quotes on new furnaces (one of t my mom's furnaces has required two service calls during the past week...yeesh), a trip to the bank, and then nephew baby-sitting while Ms. T goes to her ballet lessons. Once she's done, both will be here (along with my wonderful sister-in-law). Excited!!
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
