46 shades of grey...

Hello everyone,
I'm here to talk to you all about Copic greys! 

Copic make 46 different shades of grey in four colour families - Cool, Neutral, Warm and Toner. 
To show you how different each grey looks I have coloured four very cute little dogs, one in each of the copic grey colour groups.
Each colour of grey brings its own tone and feel to a picture.  You can see here how different they are.
Cool Grey (C)
Cool grey has a slight blue tint to it which makes it ideal for colouring snow and anything white.
Neutral Grey (N)
Neutral grey is actually a true neutral grey.
Warm Grey (W)
Warm grey has a hint of brown.
Toner Grey (N)
Toner grey is halfway between neutral and warm.
Copic Greys really are a very useful addition to your Copic collection!
They can be used on their own to create the colour grey or they can used over the top of more vibrant colours to soften them or create shade.

If you are n't sure which colour grey to use for your project then it will help you if you think of the colour wheel and use Warm Greys with warm colours and Cool Greys with cool colours.
I have used the little dogs I coloured in grey to make a very quick and easy card.
The red accessories are coloured with Copic R59, R37, R43.

Love this card! First of all, I like the card and puppies but then it's brilliant the way you've used all the different shades of gray.
I've just purchased some of the Copic T colours and love them.
