Chameleon Pens - It's a "Yes" For Me!

Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Card!
Happy Monday!
$84 + Shipping Amazon
This card was created for the Paper Smooches Sparks "Anything Goes" Challenge found on the SPARKS blog here!

Chameleon Pens peaked my interest on YouTube and I began to  research these curious new pens.  Making a long story short, after three weeks of checking out everything I could find, I bought the large 20-pen set.  I was sold when I realized I could get all the different shades I needed of a color with one pen.  They are alcohol ink pens, exact same qualities and results as Copics, but the need for 6 green pens (or more!) for example, in different shades is gone.  For me, it takes the frustration out of not having the exact color I wanted for my image. 
Three colors required for this card.

This cute image is a Heartfelt Creations stamp called "Feathered Friends".

So what do you think?  A quick disclaimer though -- there's a learning curve, it took me a couple of tries to figure out the way the ink flows and the blending technique, but now I find it's a no-brainer for me!  Let me know your thoughts!

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
