Posted on March 29, 2010 at 8:46am 0 Comments

Hello, just wanted to introduce myself, as you can see by my picture I am a Civil war Re-enactor, so yes I dress funny at times! I just got into to stamping and using my Cricut Expressions. I love to make cards and I want to create a scrapbook of our CW events also.

I would love to get to know everyone, drop me a line.

Thanks!

Sue Ellen

Hi, Sue Ellen. Thank you so much for your kind words. I wrote a reply to someone else asking about copic colors recently, so I'll share that with you, too. First you will want to have a colorless blender for fixing mistakes, highlighting areas and adding texture. I like to color nature images most, like flowers, foliage and animals. If I were starting over, the ones I would pick first are...

Yellows
Y17
Y23
Y21

Pink
RV25
RV23
RV21

Green (these are yellow greens, which I like better than most of the plain greens - the 95 and 93 make a nice olive green for some foliage and then layering the 03 on top of those brightens them up for more intense greens)
YG95
YG93
YG03

Orange
YR07
YR04
YR02

Lavender
V06
V04
V01

Brown
E35
E37
E51
E53
E57

Blue
B26
B23
B21

Red
R22
R24
R27

Grey
N7 (nearly black)
N5
N3
N1

That is more colors than you would need to start, but some of my most used colors.

Have you been to Marianne Walker's blog? She has some great info on her left side bar, along with some links to specific posts, that will really help you understand blending families. The info there was invaluable to me in choosing my colors.

As far as Memento ink colors go, the ones I use the most are Cantaloupe, New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves, Tangelo, Summer Sky, Danube Blue, Lulu Lavender, Grape Jelly, Desert Sand, Rich Cocoa, Angel Pink and Rose Bud. Whew, that is a lot. Oh, if you get Copics, you'll also want Tuxedo Black. That is one of the few inks that don't run when coloring with copics.

When choosing your own colors, try to think about the type of images you like to color the most and choose colors suitable for those images.

Hope that helps!

Hi sue ellen! I think the best price on Copics that I have found with shipping is iCopic because you can become a gold member there and have an opportunity to save.

Sue Ellen, On the card with bird I used my nestabilities circle and left the die on after cutting and sponged the barely banana and then after stamping my images in the circle I colored it using my Stampin' Up markers. On the hummingbird, it is stamped in black on watercolor paper and then I used chalk enhancer with my Stampin' Up chalks and aquawriter to color it. Gina has a tutorial about the chalk enhancer and I watched it and then ordered some from her. Just scroll down on the right until you see Chalk Enhancer and watch her video. Hope this helps and thanks for the sweet comments. I have only been coloring a short time and I'm having fun with it.

Sue Ellen, I can't see which card you are talking about when you sent the friend request. Let me know and I'll tell you what I did. Glad to count you as a friend.

It is in the Stampin' Up set with the cross. Refuge and Strength. I believe it is still available in the catalog if you know of a demo you can order it from. Thanks
