A Match Made in Heaven!

More than a month after our announcement that Flourishes would be adding Copic Markers- we are happy to report - each and every collection is now in the store!

When we started to put together the names and colors in each of our Copic Collection Natural Blending Families, we knew that we really needed the perfect paper to serve as our canvas for these wonderful markers. We searched high and low and tested paper after paper until one day, in a place we least expected to find the paper of our dreams - we found it! It was a match made in heaven!

Introducing.....

We will now carry this fabulous paper in Classic White and Classic Ivory. Both are 100 pound cover weight paper (270 gsm - grams per square meter) offering a wonderful weight for either layering or as your card base!

The Classic White offers an extraordinarily bright white surface - the brightest white we found - and smooth finish to help deliver rich, vibrant colors and sharp images with startling results. This hand-picked paper blends your Copic markers like no other card stock and won't dull or gray your colors like other papers. This is truly the best paper for Copics that we have found in the marketplace (and we've tried them all!). As you'll see in the store, you'll be able to pick up 25 sheets for just $4.99.

While the standard that we placed on this paper was to work with Copics, we are sure that you will find many other uses for this wonderful paper as well. Our design team tested it to the max and also found fabulous results with colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits as well as watercolor pencils. We know you'll have fun taking this fabulous paper for a "test drive!"

Since it has been awhile since we first announced our Copic Collection was coming, we wanted to showcase each of the collections again for you to peruse!













Aren't those colors delicious? Coming up Wednesday, right here on the Flourishes Newsletter, we'll give you a little insight into how we came up with each of our natural blending families. And, Thursday we'll follow it all up with some basic coloring lessons. Bottom line, we love the way these colors blend and we know, given the right knowledge, you'll have beautiful results too!

This is a GREAT idea!! I am so glad you decided to sell them this way. This makes it easy for those of us a bit overwhelmed by all the choices!

I am so glad these are in now, I have been patiently waiting and you have new cardstock, too!! It is really hard to find some of the things "I think" I have to have locally. I am having to check stores when I am on little weekend travels, so thank you so much. Order will be coming.

This is the perfect way to purchase these markers... I know my friend and I have been kind of confused as to which ones go with what..... thanks for taking all the guess work out of it!

THANK YOU! You've opened a new door for many of us! I've been investigating how to use/purchase COPICS and very puzzled about exactly where to start. I'm thrilled Flourishes has come to my rescue! I'm looking forward to my first purchase and the next few days of learning how to color with these markers. Thanks so much!
