Hello, My Creative Friends! My name is Jessica Sanders of ColorMeCreativeArt. I am super happy to be here with you, and the amazing Chameleon Team. I live in Houston, Texas with my wonderful husband and four awesome kids, who are growing up so fast! I am a full-time artist/maker, blogger, and YouTuber. I have been making art my whole life. It began with painting-by-numbers with my dad, craft and painting projects with my grandmother, and progressed to variations such as painting my walls with faux finishes, painting with my children, making maps using computer software, mosaics, and finally to painting on canvas and art journaling. My passion is exploring art, creativity, and art supplies, which is how I fell in love with Chameleon Pens!

Print your fish on white vellum finish cardstock.
Color each fish using different color combinations.
Fish 1: Fuse the VO4 pen with the BL3 Color Top for a few seconds and color from the top of the head down. Then re-infuse to color the tail starting from the tip.
Fish 2: Fuse the BV4 pen with the VO4 Color Top for a few seconds before coloring in the same way as fish 1.
Fish 3: Fuse the GR4 pen with the BG4 Color Top for 10 seconds, then fuse with the BL3 Color Top for 10 seconds to create a 3-color gradient. Color the fish from the head to the tail.
TIP: Overlap your pen strokes to help create a smooth finish.
Use coordinating pencils to add details to the fish e.g. small scallop shapes for scales.
Fussy cut the fish.
Stamp the sentiment and assemble your card.
