Copic Colouring Guide Book 4 Blog Hop!


Hello Everyone and welcome to a very special blog hop!  I am SO excited to announce my participation and publication in the latest book in the series, the Copic Coloring Guide, Level 4: Fine Details!

Authors Colleen Schaan and Marianne Walker have partnered up again with the team at Annie’s and some of the most talented artists and designers in the industry to bring you a quality publication packed full of techniques, theory, tutorials, and inspiration.  The 64-page book is the latest in the Coloring Guide series, offering information and educational material for crafters of all skill levels.

From light source to shading and shadows, to mixing mediums and tackling detailed images, this book shows how to take your coloring up one notch further… by focusing on the fine details.  All of the information is presented in an easy-to-follow format.

An included CD contains all of the hand-drawn images used in the tutorial section of the book, along with the assembly instructions for all of the projects.

Each participating designer is hopping today to give you a peak at their favorite project from the book - and a chance to WIN your own autographed copy!


My card, "On The Porch" is in the book and I'm absolutely thrilled to be a part of this fabulous resource alongside a wonderful and incredibly talented group of women!  My project focuses on expanding the scene around your stamped image which I've done by creating a scene around this chair stamp by Flourishes LLC.  If you want to know more, you can find all the instructions and Copic Colours used in the book!!!  :)



To help kick off the celebration of the new book... each designer on the hop is giving away an autographed copy of the book...signed not only by Colleen and Marianne, but by the individual designer too!  Please comment on this post for your chance to win your copy of mine!  Commenting will be closed Midnight Sunday June 30th (US EST).   Winners will be announced on each individual designer's blog!

Very beautiful card. I would love to have this book, as I do have other Annie's Copic Coloring Books. I am rusty at doing copic shading, as all my card making supplies have been stashed away for a little over two years with our busy lifes of building our own home. We are now in, but have lots of outside projects to finish, so card making is on the back burner, as our summer is so short and the snow will be flying soon.
