New Copic Products Part 4 and Winners!

ETA...Please note that I have updated my copic certification details page. You will always be able to find that info at the tab at the top of my blog. Click HERE for that info.
I have a card to share with you today along with the winners of the copic swatchbook draw. This is "My Umbrella" from the Pure Innocence line at My Favorite Things. I keep going back to her as I love her little umbrella!
I paired her up with the DeLovely Cosmo Cricket paper and stickers.
I also used one of my favorite Die-namic dies from MFT, the JUMBO Scallops.
I paper pieced her jacket and umbrella...but remember to do your copic shading even on your paper pieced items so that they look cohesive with the rest of your design.
Here is a little close up of one of my favorite parts. I took my copic multiliner and drew my puddle. I also colored a light reflection in the water, making it just a shade lighter than my original image. I covered it in glossy accents to complete the water look.

Today we have one more new COPIC product to share, and I think you'll all agree, this one is very exciting!

12 New Sketch Colors
Have you needed more pinks? Been wishing for a purple that isn't pinkish? Wanted a brown that could be green or brown depending on what you match it with? The new 12 colors have been carefully picked and have been through months of color testing. Now Copic is pleased to announce 12 new colors of Sketch markers.

Throwing in my hat for a chance to win the new swatch book, especially since I will *NEED* the new sketch colors!

I just started using copics, I have limited colors, but I love them! They are the best on the market for sure! I'm learning through videos and other tutorials, slowly but surely I'll get there! Awe, the swatch book would be wonderful. For me it's hard to tell by the lids, what color they are. I could take it with me when I shop for copics! Yeah!!!!

If you could e-mail me your addresses right away (link on my sidebar) that would be fantastic! Congrats on winning your own swatchbook!
