Favorite Copic Color Combos - DT Lissa

Hey, y'all! It's Lissa again! This week, the design team is sharing their top 3 Copic marker colors combinations and I HAD to share mine with you!

Mine are based around 2 things. 1.) I LOVE foxes! 2.) Christmas is coming very soon!

My first color combination I'm sharing is the one I ALWAYS use for foxes. You can make it lighter or darker by adding more or less of the darker colors in. I found this color combination when I was looking up photos of foxes, I found a photo I liked, printed it, and used my Copic swatches to match the different colors. I love that it's not too red, not too orange, and not too brown. It feels just right to me! It works great for CDD images because there are a TON of foxes in the shop!

My fox color combo is (dark to light) YR27, E33, YR16, YR12

The second color combination I'm choosing is my Red color combination. I LOVE this bright, Christmassy red for my Christmas cards, and it's my go to red for everything.

The color combination for red is (dark to light) R59, R39, R29, R24

My third and last color combination is the one I LOVE for a nice Christmas green. And, it's easy to make your highlights and shadows with this one. It does take a little more blending though.

The color combination for green is (dark to light) G28, G46, YG17, YG23

I'm attaching 3 photos to show the use of these color combinations. These adorable images are from Santa's Helpers. Aren't they cute?!?! Plus, I threw in a couple extras I always use too.




Now, I couldn't just color up these cuties and not use them in a card. So, I decided to make my first Christmas card of 2017. I think I have a long way to go, but as long as they're using CDD images, they'll all be A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!!


So, now, to make my project, I pulled out my Shake It Up dies and also my Inside Scalloped Circle dies. I used the circle from the Shake It Up dies along with the medium scalloped circle from the Inside Scalloped Circle dies to make my frame.

I cut an additional 2 circles, from Bristol Smooth cardstock, from the Shake It Up dies for my background. One circle I inked up with Distress Inks, and the other I cut into the 2 snow banks.


You can see my adorable little scene inside my shaker. I LOVE how this came out!

As you can see below, I cut the base from some dark brown cardstock, and then cut the plate from some silver metallic paper. After stamping my sentiment, I attached it to the base with brads.


This card did end up being a bit thick, so it's one that will either be shipped in a box of presents or hand delivered.


I do hope you like my card! Thanks for letting me share my top 3 color combinations with you!
