Happy weekend crafty friends!
I've received a lot of questions about my favorite Copic Marker colors so today I have a card featuring images colored with my favorite and most used Copic Markers. This is by no means all the colors I use but I would say these are the colors I use more than any others. I am not an expert at all. A lot of coloring is trial and error and practice, practice, practice!
To showcase my favorite Copic markers I used one of my favorite Simon Says Stamp stamp sets, Abby's Spring Showers. While I touched almost all my favorite colors/color families there were a few colors in the gray families that I couldn't fit into this card! All of my favorite markers (plus the few I didn't fit into this designs) are listed below the project photos.
For the background I stamped SSS Sea Glass Cardstock with the SSS Falling Rain Background Stamp using Versamark Ink and embossing with clear embossing powder. I stamped SSS Green Leaf Cardstock with the SSS Diagonal Background Stamp using SSS Fern Ink and die cut a landscape using a SSS Stitched Slopes and Borders die. I die cut clouds from smooth white cardstock and vellum using the SSS Flat Bottom Clouds die and heat embossed a greeting on the vellum cloud from the SSS Hand Lettered Encouragement Stamp Set, embossing with white embossing powder.
I adhered all the stamped, colored and die cut images to the background panel and rounded the corners on the panel and the card base with a 1/2" corner chomper.
CAUCASIAN SKIN TONES
These are the colors I generally use for caucasian skin. I'm creating another tutorial/chart featuring more skin tones/hair colors. I'll have that up in the next week or so!
What I like to use for hair, animal fur, wood.
REDS, PINK & RED VIOLETS
My favorite colors for terra cotta (like the pots on the card) or for orange tabby cats.
