Copic Coloring Guide Blog Hop!

 Welcome to the Copic Coloring Guide Blog Hop!  We've got 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 beginner and intermediate coloring artists alike.  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 beautiful coloring card projects separated into beginner, intermediate and advanced skill level.  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 is a cute little project that I did for the book. If you have taken the copic intermediate class you may recognize the coloring with a radial light source (the lamp).
This image is "Bedtime Story" by My Favorite Things.

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).

How 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 your FAVORITE COPIC COLOR!  Posting will close at midnight on Saturday (July 9) and the winner will be posted on Monday, July 11. 

Make sure to visit each of the designers blogs to see their favorite project from the book and for a chance to win your own autographed copy!

Do I have to pick only one color Sherrie?! If I have to I'd say R81--it seems to be a well used color. Thanks for the chance to win and I have to say, your certification classes are superb!

Darla said...

Well, to be honest I have no idea since I only have colored pencils to play with, but maybe someday! Your sweet little card is beautiful!

Cassie said...

Hey Sherrie, your coloring is definitely something to model. My favorite color has got to be the new BG53 (and all those colors close to it, haha) They seem to get the most love. Thanks for the opportunity to win :D

JoAnnG said...

I love the yellow greens - YG01, YG21, and YG25. Green is my favorite color!

Susan said...

your card is adorable! Awesome coloring!!
I do not have any copics yet, as I do not know how to use them, so this book would be great for me! But I would say Flesh tones as to me, people are the hardest to color correctly.
Thanks for the opportunity!
Susan

scrappingnana said...

Your card is adorable. Love your coloring. I just got 3 fleshtone Copics last week to practice with so I don't have a favorite Copic color, although blue is my favorite color, so I would choose any of the blues. Thanks for the chance to win this book. I think it would be a great help.

Colleen Schaan said...

Now this is something I could really use and will have to look for! As for fav colour... just one?! lol I'll say BG09!

Hope you're doing well!

diana said...

I don't own any Copics ... yet! My favourite colour would probably be a red or a pink because I'd love to learn how to colour floral images. ;-)

Cassie said...

I LOVE YG25!
Thanks for a chance to win this book.

Lori Craig said...

I'm still carrying around a beautiful inchie that you colored at CHA in my wallet. I think about you every time I see it. Love your coloring skills and your ability to teach different techniques and concepts. Just adore working with you, Sherrie! Hugs!

soozle said...

Thanks for sharing your beautiful card. I would love the chance to learn how to use my Copics to achieve similar results to you. My colouring is very basic so it would be a real thrill to learn properly! I would love to learn how to achieve the shadowing that you have done it is just extraordinary! Lucky we have talented people like you to show us how. At the moment I love the newish BG53 but I am needing to purchase many more, so that I can achieve this shading and shadowing - hopefully. Thankyou so much from an admiring cardmaker

Jennie Lin Black said...

Sherrie, eveyone's card is beautiful.. however I must say this is one of my favorites.. Love your shadows and highlights.. I really MUST have this image.... Hugs girlfriend! My favorite color changes everyday.... today I am in an RV00, RV63, RV55, RV19 mood... variety and hot! Love you!

GailBDevlin said...

At age 67, after years of knitting, sewing, and some stamping, I am now addicted to card making. Having just begun, my supplies, equipment and knowledge are very limited. I do love to color flowers but at present cannot afford Copics.

Patty Sue 2 said...

I love how you card shows the light from the lamp and the shadows created! Fantastic! Love all colors and I am trying to experiment more!

Adelina said...

Ha! I acutally had to go look at what it's called - BG10. I use it for showing the ground on my cards. Like under a person that's standing or shadows. I love it!

thestampinglady said...

My favorite color is BG32 AquaMint. I only have a handful so I'm just a very basic beginner. Thanks for the chance to win.

Anonymous said...

Love the card but choosing just one color is hard, I'm loving the Teal/aqua range at the moment :) EJ

Marsha said...

If I really have to name one marker, it would be R35. It gets a lot of use. I love your card. I am still intimidated by "people" images. I feel safer with florals. They seem more forgiving. Maybe this book would get me past this block.

Jo Lee said...

My favorite color is VO4 Lilac. Now, if I could just learn to bring my images to life like you do! Your work is amazing.

Luv 2 Create said...

Super cute card!! As far as a favorite, I really couldn't pick just one. I have a few favorites in each of the color catagories, but it really depends on what type of image I am coloring, and matching paper. I will say that my least favorite is lilac, and my favorite color is red, but that doesn't really answer your question.

This is awesome!!! I would love to learn the radial light source!!!

As for a single color, next to impossible!!! I <3 all my Copics equally when it comes to the richness of the colors whether it is bold or soft. I can say there is a trio out there that I reach for hands down anytime I color an image with a person (which is more often than not) in it and that is - E00, E01, & E02.

Thanks for a chance to win!!

I luv all the Violets so V17 would be my favorite! What a beautiful card - thanks for sharing!

Kel said...

What a great giveaway, looking forward to this book whether I win or whether I have to buy -- my favorite Copic color -- to use to just because - since shades of purple are my favorite color in general -- I choose V09

I'm brand new to the world of Copics. I don't have favorite colors yet, but I love the BV family.

Margaret said...

I love using my Copics. It's hard to pick just one color since I have all of the Sketch ones. My favorite is the one that I'm using at the moment. Would love to have a signed copy of the book.

Hi Sherrie...very cute card...the moon and stars are the perfect added touch for this little scene. Right now I don't have a favorite color, but I know it will be in the violet group. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Sharon :o)

sharon g said...

B29 is my favorite at this very moment. In 2 minutes it will change.

Sandy said...

I LOVE the coloring on your card. The shadows, cast from the light, are done perfectly! I want to learn how to do that! My favorite Copic colors are the BlueGreens, and my most favorite one is BG53.

Margaret said...

Tough choice since there are sooo many colors! I would have to say that my favorite color is BG10. It's followed very closely by B000. I use them both very frequently when coloring images.

Love your card. I have a few of the Pure Innocence images, but haven't had plyed with them yet. Your coloring makes me want to pull them out and make a card this instant. :-) Thanks so much for the chance to win!

Oh my gosh how cute!! I hope I get to take an intermediate class this year!! My fave color is RV23....but most of the pinks get a lot of use from me! LOL

Shirley N said...

Just beautiful, love your shading--one thing that I find most difficult. This book is a must have, thanks for the chance to win! Hard to pick one color--does the colorless blender count? lol

Pixie Camembert said...

Hi, Sherrie. I am a subscriber to your blog - just an FYI. This image is the cutest ever! I'll have to jump over to check out these stamps. New to me! Never understood the rubber stamp obsession...now I've got it! Favorite color as of this second is V25 Blackberry - but it will honestly change any second...just too many luscious colors to choose one!

Wilma Z said...

Your cards are gorgeous. I love your work. If I have to choose only one favorite color, I guess it would be BG10. Thanks for the chance to win!

Mary T said...

Love Copics and having this book would certainly help me increase my skill. I like to color flowers mainly. I love YG11, YG13 & YG17 for leaves and grass and R83, R85 & R89 for roses. Thanks for the chance to win!

Catherine Kraft said...

Your card is really cute and I love the shadowing, something I'm not sure how to accomplish. Hopefully I will win a book so I can learn! Right now I am working on Violets/Pansy's so purples and greens are my favorite shades. If I have to pick one it would be V06. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

Laraine R said...

Great card!! I don't have any copics yet but if I did it would be the blues!! I would so love to win this book!!

Sam said...

I Love V09 ... such a great shade of purple

Julie K said...

Call me crazy but I like how the Co1 and C03 work together in shading.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Linda S said...

I tend to go to BG10 A LOT! Great giveaway! Thanks.

Lori Rider said...

Wow, your card is amazing. That light just glows! I want to take the intermediate class so badly!!

One favorite color - I don't know if I can pick one, but I love the BGs!

Sherry Kushibab said...

For today my fav Copic colors are BV0000, BV00 and BV01 - I am working on flowers. What an adorable card, I just love MFT stamps - sweet.

Donna said...

Favorite color, that is a toughy, as I use so many daily, but I will give my answer this way, B91 I have 2 of and that one gets filled the most often, so I must use it a lot, I have other favorites, but I love them all.

Thanks for a chance at this wonderful book , that i hope will improve my coloring skills, I love taking my copics class's but some times at home by myself I think a book like this might give me a boost.

And awesome job on your card, you all are so talented. God Bless and thanks again,
Donna

Lynn said...

Your card is so cute. I don't have a favorite yet since I don't have any. My favorite colors are blues and pinks.

Gena Porter - aka GDP2001 said...

I love RV14. That with RV13 works great.

Stampintonya said...

Welllll if I can only pick one, I am going with a purple (my fave color anyways). Let's say V15!
