This post is part of a video blog hop to share a new marker chart that my friend, all round good egg and fellow blogger Sandy Allnock has created. More on the hop below, but let’s just chat a minute about organising markers. I currently use a chart to organise my markers by colour then shade according to the number on the cap. I also store my Copics in line with this chart so that I can easily pull markers in a light, medium and dark shade from a colour group. That’s pretty much how I colour; when I need a red I pull R22 R24 and R27 etc However, Sandy has organised her markers according to how they appear to the eye and although its early days for me using Sandy’s Hex Chart I can say that I was amazed that when placed next to each other how many similar colours of marker I have! Seriously is there a difference between Y23 and Y32?! You can find all the details about the Hex Chart here.
As this is a video hop, well I guess I had to get my act in gear and make a video LOL. I chat about the Hex Chart and also share my findings on using the Misti stamping tool along with a little simple masking and basic Copic colouring with the cute Baby Party Animals set from Simon Says Stamp :D
I only bought the Misti recently; at first I wasn’t sure I needed it as I saw it’s potential for making multiples of cards which I rarely do. However, as stamping friends got their hands on this tool and I saw how useful it was for re-stamping a mis-stamped image, stamping light ink colours several times to darken them and many other techniques and I began to realise that the Misti was something I needed. I’m not disappointed; even in this video I make a stamping blooper which the Misti fixed :D
A very simple card using the Baby Party Animals set stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Solar White. Some simple masking and finished off with a sentiment from the Flowers On My Mind set :D
Well now as part of the Video Blog Hop it’s time to hop on over to the delightful

such a sweet card and I appreciated watching how you color and how you use the Misti, something I’m just starting to use. Great ideas, thanks so much.
Love your sweet card. I think I am going to love Sandy’s chart!
Such a cute card, love the little critters. Thank you for the video on using the Hex_Chart.
Love the little kitty!
Thanks for the great video. Love the hex chart and the explanation.
Just watched your video and I must say a great BIG thank you. I don’t own any Copic markers but after watching what you did I may venture out and buy a few. You are clearly artistically talented (which I am not) so I truly appreciate the video since you explained what you were doing. I am very visual so thank you again for your video ! Adorable card TFS
Yay, glad you liked it and hopefully helped :D
