My Sponser This Week is iCopic

March 8, 2010 - March 14, 2010
About iCopic
icopic is an online retailer dedicated to providing high quality Copic products backed by superior service and affordable prices. Our huge selection of Copic products and Price Match Guarantee program make us the one stop shop for supplying all your Copic needs. With you in mind, we’ve designed a site that makes shopping a breeze and most orders qualify for Free Shipping! With a shared passion for stamping and art, icopic is proud to sponsor Sally’s Creative Corner, where two lucky winners will either win a
Set of 8 Copic Ciao – Manga Muted Colors + 1 multiliner Pen

or a
set of 12 Copic Glitter AtYou Spica color markers (Set B)

My Personal testimonial: Having been a customer of icopic for some time now I wouldn’t buy my markers any place other than iCopic. I have found them to be truly knowledgeable of the product they sell so don’t hesitate ever to ask them what you need to know. Their service and mail order is unquestionably some of the best ever. Copic Markers are my favorite medium to color with. I can see the two of us having a very long relationship. I have owned several copics for over a year now and they are just as good as they were the day I purchased them. I can’t say the same for other markers I have used. Please stop by icopic and have a look around. I am sure you will be inspired to do a little “shopping” while you’re there. BTW, if you become a Gold Member…your shipping is free and they have made it so easy to become a Gold Member. I should know.. I’m one! The two fabulous prizes up for this week are the Copic Ciao-Set 8 Manga Muted Colors Markers+1 Multiliner Pen. AND the Copic Glitter (at you spica setB). If you are like me and love glitz, these are a must have in your crafting arsenal. (I don't have this set and I am soooo jealous of some lucky winner out in blogland!

What do you have to do to receive one of these two FABULOUS gifts? Simply spread the word about my sponsor on your blog. Please Simple as that! No strings attached. The 2 lucky winners will be chosen by Random Generator and posted on Monda, March 15.

****A word to my Anonymous bloggers.

******NEWS AND A NEW BLOG******

iCopic now has a new blog that features "how to" videos using copics. On their blog they tell how to start purchasing them. Fabulous! Be sure to check it out.

I thought I would try my hand a coloring an image just using the colors from the Manga Muted Colors set, however I didn't have all the colors, so keep in mind that as you look at this. (I also cheated and used other colors on her face.)
I wanted to show, that in my playing with copics, I have learned you can do some shading even if you don't have 3 verying shades of the same color (light, med, dark). With her kimono I colored the entire thing in E51, then lightly added a line of y17 in what I felt were my darkest areas , Colored again with E51 to blend the two colors together. I colored the base of the leaves with YG67 and the tips with G21. I used R59 on the fan, putting two coats on the center part of the fan and one on the rest. I then used my E51 to lift some of the color off the top part of the fan. I don't own this set of Spica at you markers so I couldn't use any of them but I would have done some highlights with those as well.

ThePurplePlace said...

I am ALSO a huge FAN of iCopics and I also LOVE my coloring with my copic markers.

I have purchased markers from iCopics several times and I am a GOLD MEMBER at the store. The service is excellent and my markers always arrive in perfect condition and very quickly.

I already have the "store" blinkie on my blog and have referred several fellow crafters to the store.

Hop on over to my blog and you'll find the store Blinkie in my sidebar along with lots of cards I have created using my Copic Markers.

Happy Crafting and GOOD LUCK to everyone.
