12 New Sketch Colors

There has been quite a buzz in the Copic world with the recent release of 12 new colors of Sketch markers. The colors in this release are: V20, V25, RV55, RV63, RV66, YR30, YG61, BG53, BG70, E23, E81 and E87. Because Copic has never retired a single color from it's line, this brings the color range of the Sketch collection to 346 beautiful colors.

Here's a color comparison project that I put together. I've used most of the 12 new Sketch colors to blend. I've noted the colors used on each sample. The new colors used are noted with a • next to the reference numbers. Couple of editorial comments: 1) YR30 - drool...for anyone who enjoys adding a faint glow behind their images, usually with YR31 and blender - sometimes mixed in an empty pen, you'll *need* this color. 2) BG70 - perfect compliment to a favored combo BG72/BG75. 3) Surprisingly, one of the colors I was least excited about became a favorite when I colored these balls of yarn, RV55...a beautiful shade of bright pink. {love}.

And here's a fun card using the Roses in Teacup image from Lockhart Stamp Company and new Sketch colors. (BG70, BG72, RV63, RV66, YG61, YG63 and W1)

Don't forget that we have a Magical Challenge going right now. One lucky person has the opportunity to win all 12 of the new Sketch colors from X-Press Graph-X Supplies!
