Since getting serious about card making back in early 2017, I’ve been slowly amazing a respectable collection of alcohol markers. I decided to commit to Copics because it seemed like they were the “it” marker and most of the card makers I admired and followed were using them.
And while I wasn’t exactly a skilled colorer when I started (and still am not!), it didn’t stop me from buying markers every so often to build my collection. Side note: I also inherited a TON of markers from a blog reader who decided she didn’t want hers anymore. And that was pretty sweet!
I’m still learning about these markers but I think part of my problem was not really knowing which marker to grab for what, and even though I have this wonderful hex chart showing my colors, I wanted to create a portable, larger swatch collection to help me when it came to picking out colors for projects.
I decided to use some of the new Waffle Flower swatching tools to create a new reference for my markers. This swatch ring can be next to me when I’m envisioning what colors to pick and I store it in my big crafty cabinet away from direct sun exposure.
Here’s a short video showing you how I created my swatches.
