We are so excited to be included in the Altenew 4th Anniversary Blog Hop, we love their stamps and dies so much they are the perfect partner to Chameleon Color Tone Pens, Color Tops and Color Tone Pencils! If you are already hopping along you will have arrived here from Svitlana Shayevich's blog.

Cathy has created three projects for this special event, the first uses Chameleon Pens and Color Tops to color the Altenew Striped Leaf Cover Die.

This was so easy to create, you can see how here.

Alternatively you can download the instructions  for the Unbe-leaf-able card here.

Next Cathy shows you how you can use Chameleon Color Tone Pencils to add shading to stamped leaves from the Altenew Parrot Paradise Stamp set and how to get an ombre effect on the sentiment using Chameleon Color Tone Pens and Color Tops along with the Totally Tropical Die set.

Now watch how easy it is to create that great Ombre effect!

Alternatively you can download the Aloha Card instructions here.

Finally Cathy shows how you can combine Chameleon Color Tone Pencils and Pens to blend together on the flowers from Altenew's Happy Bloom Stamp and Die set.

Watch how easy it is to use your Chameleon pens to blend your pencils in the video.
