Avery Elle & Chameleon pens week

Hi again!

This is my second post today, if you're looking for my Lawnscaping Sketch challenge, lick here or just scroll down. Thanks!!

It's Chameleon Pens and Avery Elle week!  This week the Avery Elle design team is playing with some amazing pens from our friends over at Chameleon.  These pens work so well with our stamps and dies!  After visiting here, be sure to check out the Chameleon blog for even more inspiration!  Be  sure to comment on our company and designer blogs throughout the week to be entered to win one of two prizes - a $50 Avery Elle Gift Certificate or a pen set from Chameleon!  The winner of the Avery Elle Gift Certificate will be announced on the Avery Elle blog on Monday, April 27th.


Our friends at Chameleon kindly send us a pack of markers to play with them, you can imagine my happiness being an alcohol marker lover!
I chose the pastel tones set and  used the markers to color the balloon, cute rabbit and Ellie. The markers are a bit tricky to use at the begging but having all the hues with just one markers is really awesome :D

Welcome

I created a baby card using Ellie and We R Family stamps and dies. I combined kraft cardstock with some patterned paper from Avery Elle as well for a non-traditional baby color combo.

I hope you like my card, you could see more examples using these markers during all this week on the Avery Elle blog :)

Hugs!

Supply list:
- Chameleon pens: Pastel tones set
- Avery Elle stamps: Ellie, We R Family
- Avery Elle dies: Ellie, We R Family
- Avery Elle papers: Everyday collection, Sorbet collection

I have been curious about these markers since I first saw them. I don't own ANY alcohol markers yet and while I wait for the budget to allow I have been doing my homework on them all. These DO sound interesting!
