Copic Coloring Guide Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Copic Coloring Guide Blog Hop!  I cannot BEGIN to tell you how excited I am to be a part of this project.  I may have actually squealed when I received the invitation.  (I’m serious.)
 Today we have information about the new book, beautiful coloring, stunning card projects… and BLOG CANDY!  
The Copic Coloring Guide is a new book by Colleen Schaan and Marianne Walker.  It’s the perfect resource for both beginner and intermediate coloring artists.  The book contains information about the different styles of Copic markers, explains the coloring/ numbering system, details how to pick good blending groups, teaches a number of blending techniques through illustrated tutorials and de-mistifies the colorless blender marker.  And that’s just in the first 18 pages!  
The book also contains over 40 beautifully colored card projects separated into beginner, intermediate and advanced skill levels.  Each card project includes step-by-step coloring AND assembly instructions along with supply lists and manufacturer information to make recreating the projects simple and easy.
Here’s one of mine from page 28. 

On this card I’ve used Being Cute is What I Do by My Favorite Things and four different coloring techniques.  They’re all explained in the book.  You can do it!  Really!   

I have two others in the book as well using images by Kraftin Kimmie Stamps

The book is published by Annie’s Attic, a division of DRG, also the publishers of the popular CardMaker magazine.  Click HERE for more information or to purchase the book.   (Also available in PDF electronic download.)

Would you like to win an autographed copy?  Each of the contributing designers is hopping today and each one is giving away a copy of the book (signed by both authors and the designer).  To be eligible to win, please leave a comment on THIS post telling us about your favorite image (or style of image) to color.  I like to color people.  The cuter, the better.   🙂   Posting will close at midnight on Saturday, July 9 and the winner will be posted on Monday, July 11.  

Be sure to visit each of the designers’ blogs to see their favorite projects from the book and for your chance to win a copy of your own!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!  I can’t wait to hear what YOU like to color!  🙂

    TFS and for the inspiration

  109. Your card is soooo dern cute!! I too like to color people images such as the Magnolias and the Stamping Bella Fairies – but anything fun catches my eye. I also like to color flowers. Well… now that I think about it, I like to color just about anything as long as it’s with my Copics! lol

  110. OK, how funny is this, I just told Debbie I love to color PIs — just like yours! So now I’m wondering if I left the wrong answer to her question, what do I like to color? Well, that’s my top choice, if I were choosing an image I would say one without too much detail because I’m still a baby with copics: shirt, hair, pants, face. So when I win this book I can grow in my abilities! Woo hoo!

  111. I love your site and I am always so happy to open your message to see what project you have created. You never disappoint.
    Okay, my favorite thing to color is people. I love doing the same image time and again with different colors of hair, clothes and skin tone.
