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!

Hi Sally, seemed to have missed your posts for a while! Lovely prize on offer and I am definitely a copic lover. I find them so much easier to get a nice shading with. I got my first copics as a prize and have been hooked ever since. Thanks for the chance.

beautiful cards you have made!
i'm a real copic lover, i cant find one thing that i dislike... I like the way they blend together.. how they turn blank images to real beautiful pictures!
etc.
I've put your i copic logo on my candy page.. hopefully that will be good..

Emily said...

I love your projects. They are beautiful.

I love my copics...in fact....they are my new addiction. I love that they dont bleed like other kinds of markers. I just had to get used to the paint brush like tips. Now I wont use anything else if I can help it.

I linked you up on my blog.

Oh what gorgeous creations. I love the bookmark. Thanks for the chance at this yummy candy.

Hmmm...my fave about copics is that when you're coloring skin, it's so beautiful. My unfave is when it runs low..lol..

stampinfrog said...

I have several of the spica glitter markers, I won them a couple of months ago. Oh man I use them on everything, lol. I adore them and just wish I had more colors. I have never used any other copics, afraid they are outta my budget. So I am really hoping I win these, lol. Fabulous spotlight!!

JLJ Designs said...

Sally - I don't have any Copics, but I would really love to have some. I love all the great work I see using them. I checked out the website. I really like the descriptions of the different markers, which I hadn't seen other places.

I posted on my blog here:

I have a few Copic Ciao markers and I really love them. The nip is brush like soft yet sturdy enough to colour the detail of images. Colouring with Copic is super easy and effortless, your fingers won't get tired even if you have coloured a lot of stamped images as compared to using colour pencils.
Love to win this set as I can't get this in my country. (posted the link in my candy sidebar too).

Dear Sally,

What I love about the iCopics (although I have yet to use them) is their beautiful clear colors, the wide selection, and the fact that they don't tear your paper the way that watercolor markers can (I've been doing my reading!)

Thank you for another opportunity to win a set - one of these days, I hope to be the lucky winner of these sets!

Hugs

What I love about Copics is how well they mix with other media. I've been using them a lot to highlight my bits of painting lately. Just love them. Thanks for the chance Sally - have added this to my sidebar!

KarenB said...

Hi Sally, thanks for another Copic spotlight :) What I like about Copics is the way you can blend the colour shades together. What I dislike about Copics is that I don't have any of my own yet!! One day I'd love to get a basic starter set.

Hi Sally,

Thanks for offering this lovely blogcandy and the chance to win this!What I like about copics,is that they blend well and the colouring goes fast.Much faster teh pencils or watercolourng.I have one favorite in peticulair I use a lot,and that is eggshell.I never managed to get that colour with anything else but copics.
The spica pens I really love! I only have the clear one,would love to get more,as the bling of the Spica's is so subtle,that why I like them as I personly don't like very sparkly things.I use the clear one a lot to give a little sparkle in eyes.
I've put a link on my blog: Stempelientje and keep my fingers crossed!And please feel welcome to join my candy on my blog.Have a great weekend Sally!
Greetings from Stempelientje.

Sally what great cards. I would love to try using Copics but at the moment can't justify buying them so a chance to win some would be wonderful. Thank you.

Love your cards and your coloring is awesome Sally. I still have just a few copics and buying a couple at a time. I love the way the copics shadow and they are so bright in color. Thanks for a chance to win.

Loraine Arderne said...
