One in a Chameleon...

This image was a freebie called 'One in a Chameleon' by Lawn Fawn that came with my mail order.  I felt the sentiment that came with it is perfect for my Grand-daughter's Valentine.  My 14 y.o. neighbor, Gena, made the great background after a lesson on using a straw to blow alcohol inks on glossy paper.   The background became the inspiration for the card.  It reminded me of a beam of sunlight peeking thru the clouds - perfect for a Chameleon warming itself on a stump. The little stamp set has only the one limb on which he is standing - I drew the rest of the tree stump attached to it.  The Copic colors for my lizard were matched to the background, it was fussy cut and glued down so he was in the full sun.  The panel adheres to the white card base which had been embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The diagonal lines mimic the sunbeam lines in the sky.  A tiny 'diamond' was centered in his eye.
The sentiment was mounted on 
a slender strip of the background 
cut off the front panel.

 I had already started a personal note 
before I took the photo - so I 
cropped out my message.

  1. This is just adorable and such a brilliant design, Ginny! That chameleon is adorable (I had one name Christopher when I was young) and the stump is so well done. LOVE that fab background (woohoo, Gena!) and the ray of light was exactly what I thought of when I saw your card. Beautiful coloring, as well. Thanks so much for joining our Anything Goes challenge at Aurora Wings. xxD

  3. Great collaborative effort, Ginny! You and Gena have a fine card here. Love your coloring to match the background and your drawn tree to accompany the limb is perfect; it looks like it is part of the stamp!!! What a great sentiment, too. Another stunner...

  10. Hi Ginny, sorry I'm so late popping in to comment. I've done something to my left arm - the doctor thinks it's a nerve so have been trying not to use it a lot.
    Love the fab background your neighbour made for you and the cute litte Chameleon. A wonderful card. Thanks for entering your card at Aud Sentiment Challenge Blog.
    Hugs, Sandy
