Blog Candy


My plan was to have blog candy when my counter hit 1965, which is the year I was born. It hit and surpassed that while I was in Maryland, which means I’m offering up some long overdue blog candy. You'll get these adorable stamps from Imaginisce, along with various patterned paper, ribbon and some stamped images from my new Whipper Snapper, Riley & Cafe Hanna stamps.

All you need to do is add a comment to this post telling me which Copic color you use to color images that have denim in them and which Copic color you use to color blond hair. The blues & yellows I own simply aren't the right shade. So I need some help.

For those of you that don't have Copics, which Stampin Up colors do you use?

I’ll draw a winner on Friday morning.

I must not have the right Copics yet either. When I use SU! markers, I like Brocade Blue for denim. I haven't found a good color for blonde yet. Good luck with your search. I hope someone can help you out! :D

I don't have copics!! how sad is that? I also like brocade blue, so saffron is good for blonde hair.

Hey, thanks for the chance to win!!!

I have SU! markers. For denim, I usually use Brocade Blue, but sometimes use Bordering Blue. I've never found a yellow I'm completely happy with for blonde, so I'll often use pencils I can blend instead. If I HAVE to use a marker, then I usually go for Summer Sun or So Saffron & add in some bits of brown.

No copic here yet either. I use brocade blue for denim. I don't like any of the SU colors for blond so I usually use various shades of my prismacolor pencils.

Thanks for a chance to win such fun blog candy.

Hi Sandy,

I don't own copics YET (working on it) but for SU colors :
Denim - night of navy - using blender
Blonde - I like so saffron better than any of the yellows.

I am in the majority here and don't have copics, along with SU! Brocade Blue for denim. For blonde hair, I use the Barely Banana on the ink pad lid using the blender pen on the edge of the ink. Not ideally blonde, but it works for me.

Hi for denim I use B93 with B45 or B45 with B39. Check this blog for a tutorial on Denim:

She did skin today. Maybe she'll do hair soon. I ususally use Y21 and Y17 or even a little E33 for blond hair. Thanks for the blog candy chance!

Hi Sandy,
I only own 3 copics so far and none of them would work for that. In the SU markers I have I would probably used navy (maybe it would blend?) and barely banana for the blonde hair. Brocade sounds good, but I don't have it!
Nice blog candy!

Yikes, only one copic here E00 skin color...Just got it to try it out. I only have two SU markers and lots of Marvy and Zig markers. I just got a 48 pack of Prismacolor Markers today, I like them just as good. Haven't tried out many yet though. Lovely candy....Thanks, Kathy Hering...

I am sadly out of the Copic loop, but I love painting with reinkers. I use ballet blue with shadows of night of navy for denim & barely banana is perfect for blonde (with lowlights of creamy caramel & a weak wash of highlights of yoyo yellow, heehee) Thanks for the chance to win some fab blog candy & congrats on your blog traffic. Your work is gorgeous! :0)

Hi Sandy!
I don't have these copic colors....
I do sometimes use SU Creamy Caramel for hair....that's not really blond though.

Hello! I use Brocade Blue when trying to color denim. As for the blonde I usually end up using my water color pencils with my water pen. Sorry! Love the blog candy that you are giving away!!! Your new moose cupcake stamp is way cute!!!!TFS!

I don't have copics of SU... deprived I am!!!

Bevie Pearl said...

I have Y13, Y 15 and Y 19
I think I use Y13 for hair.
The Y19 is a nice golden yellow.
My favorite blue is B21 (Baby blue),if colored alot, it makes a nice light denim, if that makes sense.
I wish I had more copics. Isn't more better? LOL

I only have a few copics and don't have the ones for these two things. So Saffron is a good one and so is the brocade blue. I have also found a prismacolor marker that works AND one of the Koh-i-noor pencils works well!
