    My Little Tulip


    Hello and welcome! Marie here with another mini video.

    I Know from personal experience how difficult it can be to know what markers to buy.
    I did not understand Natural Blending Families and I ended up buying markers that did not blend well.
    I eventually collected all the markers but I wanted to make it easier for those starting their collections.
    That is why I have been sharing Copic Color Combos with you on a weekly basis.

    Today I will share a Cobalt Gray-Blue Copic Color Combo
