COPIC added 12 NEW colours and they are here! They are all added in my on-line store.
Pictured here are the 12 colours. Please note that I have them all individually. The picture just shows them in a case.
The colours are:
G43 Pistachio, G46 Mistletoe, BG57 Jasper, BG90 Gray Sky, E84 Khaki, E89 Pecan,
BV34 Bluebell, V22 Ash Lavender, V28 Eggplant, RV52 Cotton Candy, R56 Currant, YR27 Tuscan Orange
She made a chart showing the new colors in context of neighboring colors. The new colors are in Bold Italic type, while the other colors are existing colors that fit nicely with the new ones. Please note that she used X-Press It Blender Card to color the swatches, and she saturated it thoroughly. That means that you would be able to get lighter colors on the light end of the spectrum if you don’t totally saturate your cardstock.
These colours are available in both Sketch Markers and the Various Inks (refills). That brings COPICup to 358 glorious colors!
Remember, once you purchased 12 markers, you receive the 13th for FREE. You do not have to purchase all 12 at the same time. I keep a COPIC club card on file for you and will let you know once you have reached your FREE marker.
Go to my on-line store HERE to purchase yours. If you have any questions, or if there are other marker colours that you would like, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I can bring in all of the COPIC colours.
Today is the start of a new challenge over at our Challenge Blog “Scrapbook Essentials BC Challenges”. We are featuring The Welcome Home collection by Bo Bunny today. This week’s challenge is a colour challenge:
The Design Team has come up with some fabulous samples for you for inspiration. Make sure you head over to our Challenge Blog to see all of the samples. If you have any questions regarding the products we use, please leave us a comment and we will be happy to answer your question.
Here are 2 samples for you to start with.
The first sample is by the Illustrator of the Essential Stamps Teresa Winstone. She has created a wonderful card with so much detail. She created a layered background using Bazzill Cardstock as well as Welcome Home pattern paper and distressed the edges of each. She followed this by also inking them with Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Peeled Paint and Walnut Stain). She hand cut different flourish details out of the Welcome Home pattern paper and added them in 3 more layers and adding Stickles glitter glue to the top flourishes. Did you notice that she used the Flourish Fillers 1 stamp set to add even more detail on the background paper? She coloured in a portion of the rounded end of the flourishes using COPIC markers. The butterfly image from the Natural Butterflies 1 set is stunning. To keep the butterfly light yet colourful, she left some white space. Notice how precise her cutting was around the antennae! A little Cinnamon coloured Stickles glitter glue in the bottom right corner adds just an extra touch and helps to ground the card.
The 2nd sample is the card that I created. I used the Bo Bunny Welcome Home collection to create the backgrounds. On the top light brown pattern paper, I stamped the butterfly bush using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut stain. The 3 butterflies were stamped on scrap white cardstock, coloured with COPIC markers and hand cut out. I inked the edges of the pattern papers with Walnut Stain distress ink, border punched the green cardstock with the Martha Stewart border punch. Where the small holes are punched out, I placed dabs of Liquid Pearls White Opal colour. The ribbon at the top of the border is 1/8″ velvet ribbon (antique gold).

I just wanted to send out a quick e-mail to remind everyone that I am carrying COPIC markers and I also have a COPIC refill program. When you purchasing COPIC markers through Scrapbook Essentials BC, I will automatically keep track of your COPIC marker purchases and with every 12 markers that you purchase, you will receive the 13th for FREE! COPIC refills are $2 each.
I have been a certified Designer since 2008 and love working with COPIC markers! If you are interested in learning COPIC colouring techniques or would like to enhance on the skills you already have, just send me a message through my request page. That will give me an idea of what levels everyone is at and what instructional classes to design.
Have a colourful day!
