It is nice to have your SU matches in copics to match all your papers inks ribbons etc...but as the previous poster said make sure you get 2 or 3 of the same color family for blending. When buying you should always select a light and a medium/dark marker in the same color family for optimum blending. If you are not blending then you are not getting the value out of your copics. I have a link on the sidebar of my blog that has frequently used color combinations for copics that I compiled from visiting various blogs and seeing what color combos other people liked to use. Just click on the picture of the copic marker cap. Here is a great blog post by Rachel with color selections to get you started too.
Hi Michelle and everyone else, you can use copic markers direct to stamp and it is quite easy all you need is a little alcohol hand wash gel (I have one of those pocket mimi tubes) dab a little on the end of your finger then dap this onto a bit of paper to take off the excess (you only need a very small amount) then dab what remains onto your stamp, then colour with your copic and stamp
