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 the new book that I wrote with 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, clearly explains the coloring/numbering system, details how to pick good blending groups, teaches a number of blending techniques through illustrated tutorials, and de-mystifies 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.
There are so many great projects in this book! The designers who contributed are AMAZING and they were so much fun to work with. I'd like to thank them ALL for sharing their talents with me and with our audience. It was REALLY hard to pick my favorite project... it actually changes every time I page through the book, but today, here is MY favorite project...
I just LOVE all of the layers in this one... and the card itself is ALL about coloring! LOL The background is a digital image called Jungle and the little head-hunter guy is a rubber stamp called Chief Hambooli. Both of the images and the sentiment are from Hambo Stamps. It was so much fun to color this scene...and the instructions are included in the book!
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). You can also find the book at many of your favorite local stamp and scrapbook stores.
