Copic's now available!

Crazy for Copics! That is totally me...crazy for Copics and I finally have enough in stock to start selling them through the internet store. Just go to www.TheStampingStudio.com and then click on "Store" and then scroll down to the catagory Markers/Pencils/Crayons.

I have decided to sell these in sets of two perfectly coordinated colors. Copic alcohol markers are made to blend beatifully but you need at least two markers to do that. They say you should have a color and then a "friend" which is the lighter color. What you normally do is to color the image in using the lightest color, then take the darker color and add shadows, then take the lighter color again and color over the image again to blend the two together. That is what I have done with the leaves below.

I attended a Copic Certification Class with design team members Pat Jaynes and Suzanne Milam and we learned so much usefull information including what colors will go together. Between the 3 of us we have taken the guess work out of chosing what color to purchase that will blend well together. The sets below are the two marker sets we have come up with for you.

You may notice that we do not have yellows, browns and skin colors... these are back ordered at the moment and we will add them to the store as soon as they come in. We will also be adding more great colors!

Great job on showing how the markers blend Melissa. So glad you have a good supply now. They go fast, don't they? For those of you out there who have never tried these markers...they are the absolute best on the market. No streaking and oh so easy to use. I know I love these markers!!!!!!

Copics are the best...if you ever use them, you won't want to use anything else. Love the way you showed the markers....colors show up great and blend beautifully.
