  • “Denim” blue – B39/37/34/32

  • White blonde hair or khaki pants – E55/53/50
  • Grey – (cool) C9/7/5/3/1


Kim:
  • Colourless blender - it's THE best for so so many techniques,
  • B60 I like for shadows around my stamped images,
  • E40 I use for shadow tones on white,
  • Generally I will colour match my markers to the patterned papers, I select the colours that I think match on scrap paper, then just use them for my image.

Elaine:
  • Colourless Blender - an absolute must have.  I wouldn't be without it for fixing mistakes and for various techniques.
  • All of the light pastels (sketch only): B0000, BG0000, BV0000, C00, G0000, R0000, RV0000, Y0000, YG0000, YR0000, V0000, W00 I find these invaluable for blending and leaving contrast areas.
  • Greens - I love this combo for leaves/grass: G20, G21, G24, G28, G29
