This week in conjunction with our Friday Challenge, we have a big announcement to make ... JustRite now has a selection of 96 expertly-chosen Copic Sketch markers which may be purchased as singles, trios or quads! The number one question people have about Copic markers is which colors will work together nicely to give a great shading of color. Our design team has done all the work for you -- Our quad and trio sets are designed so that you can be assured they will work together to give you a perfect blending group!
For those of you who have already started your Copic collection, you can use our selection to easily fill in your color assortment. To make organizing which markers you have super easy, we have this great 2-page reference guide you can download and make your JustRite/Copic wish list: (click here to download the PDF file > Download JR Copic Chart 8 2010
You can find our Copic color selections from the Product page of our website HERE -- just click on the Copic Marker graphic in the middle of the page, or you'll also find Copic Markers listed on the left side of the page under "Categories" for easy navigation, no matter which product page you may be on. Then just click on Copic Sets to see our selection of trio and quad groupings, or the Copic Singles graphic to purchase markers separately. We know a lot of you are already avid Copic collectors, so we are also offering all of our colors as singles if you need to add to your collection that way.
So your JustRite Friday Challenge #032 today is to work with this fantastic fall color combination, which includes the corresponding Copic colors to help guide you. (Copic markers are not a requirement of the challenge, the colors are only given for reference):
You may also add a neutral of ivory/cream and/or kraft, if desired. You'll find the YG95 Pale Olive color in our Olive Trio, the E25 Caribe Cocoa in our Latte Trio, and the YR18 Sanguine in our Orange Trio. Hopefully this challenge will help us all get into the mood of Fall since it's back-to-school time and September is just around the corner, even though the thermometer is still hitting triple digits here in the south where I'm located!
I stamped the bird with Memento Rich Cocoa ink onto an olive die cut piece of patterned journaling paper (Making Memories). Then I colored the bird with JustRite's Copic Orange Trio (YR12 & YR16) and E21 from our Latte Trio, and Toner Gray Quad (T2 & T5), to resemble a Baltimore Oriole. The nest and tree were colored with our Sandy Quad. W1 & W00 (from our Warm Gray Quad) were used for shadows:
I sponged the outer edge of the die cut paper with Memento Desert Sand ink and adhered it to the 6-inch piece of orange and green patterned papers (Cosmo Cricket). Some zig-zag stitching and ruffled ribbon complete this piece. I haven't quite decided if this will be made into a greeting card or home decor piece (displayed on an easel, perhaps?) -- it measures 6-inches square!
