Have you heard of COPIC MARKERS? ... Well I heard of them a few months ago and fell in love with them :) I am still learning about them but they are so much fun to work with. You can even get a certification to learn how to use them, that is how cool they are :)

This is the first few things I learned about them:
1. They blend beautifully
2. You can color pretty much anything because they use alcohol ink
3. They will last forever, since you can refill them and change their tips
4. They are expensive ($4.99 to $6.99 each)

I saw Jennifer McGuire use them in her blog one time around last Christmas. So, guess what I did with the gift certificate from Hobby Lobby I got for Christmas?...You are right! I bought some Copics :) I followed Jennifer McGuire's color suggestions to buy my first set. I got 12 markets. Good thing Hobby Lobby had all markers 30% that week :) Then, this Christmas...guess what I did with a coupon to Jerry's Artarama and some Christmas money?... You are right! I got some more :) So here is the list of markers I got:

So in the Pink family I have:
R32 - Peach
R35 - Coral
R29 - Lipstick Red

in the Blue I have:
B02 - Robin's Egg Blue
B04 - Tahitian Blue

in the Blue-Violets:

BV17- Deep Reddish Blue
BV23 - Grayish Lavender

Anyway...I will add more information about Copic Markers as I learn more about them :) I will also post cards that I have made using Copic Markers.

Do you have Copic Markers? Do you have any suggestions on how to use them?

  2. Jennifer McGuire has great ideas for stamping and coloring with Copics. I used Copics on the first card I posted on my blog. I am working on another card right now and I will post it soon!

    Thanks, Cyndi
