This card is very fitting and I did not realize it until I just uploaded it. I took a leap this past weekend, I bought my first Copics! I know that I said that I was happy with my Prismacolor pencils but curiousity got the best of me and I had craft money that was burning a hole in my pocket. I bought 12 sketch markers at Inspiration Station in Stafford Springs, CT on Saturday when I met my SCS friend Elizabeth in person for the first time.
Since I color alot of animals, I bought: 0, E31, E33, E49, E57, E99, W0, W2, YG03, YG17, YG67, BG000. This covered my browns, grays, greens and gave me a light blue for shadowing. I colored some digital images that I printed out on Georgia Pacific White cardstock first. It worked pretty good. I noticed that the color can run out of the lines so I was careful not to get too close to the edge. So I stamped a few images onto PTI White to see the difference and it is much better.
I had to play with them as soon as I got home. I LOVE THEM!!!! Then I ordered 19 more from Carpe Diem since they were on sale for $4.25 each and had free shipping when you spent $80 on Copic Sketch markers only. So I got 2 of each of yellow, orange, purple, pink, blue, flesh, warm gray and 4 red and one more brown. I should be happy for some time. I want to play with these before getting any more so that I know what shades of what colors to buy next.
