Teddy Bear Birthday Card

Can you believe this was the last weekend of June... Holy Moly!

Each posting I am going to have either items on sale or tip of the day. It can be anywhere from Copics to a simple tutorial.

Tip of the day:  Copic Markers

The number one question when starting to buy Copic Markers are "what should I buy first"  These are my recommendation for starting a Copic collection.
  • E000, E00, E11 - Flesh tones for Caucasian skin. R20 for blush 
  • Y00 or Y11, Y02, Y04, Y08 - Yellow
  • E29, E25, E35, E50 -Browns for wood and hair
  • R22, R26, R29 - bright red
  • YG21, YG24 - Green for grass and plants
  • B21, B24, B27, B29 for bright blue.
  • RV 00, RV21, RV25 - Bright pink .
  • C00, C1, C3 -  mimics "white" clothing and can add depth and a shadow to the outside of your image
  • V12, V15, V17 - purples
  • YR12, YR15, YE17
  • Copic Blender is a must have to lighten or remove color. 
Remember you should have three markers in the same color family 2-4 numbers apart.  This is so you can create shadow and light areas to create a 3 D look. For example:  blue's you could eliminate B29 or B21 depending on the depth of color you are looking to create!

Hope this helps
