World Cardmaking Day

Today is World Cardmaking Day , and so to kick of this day for papercrafters we are sponsoring a prize drawing. All you have to do is post a comment on today's post about either your favorite Copic product or what tutorials you would like to see me show more of.

You have just over a week to post. At midnight on Sunday the 12th I will randomly choose 3 winners for our prize packs. Each pack is worth over $75 and is a great way to kick off your holiday cardmaking. I have chosen colors that are great for the holiday season and I think you'll have fun with the Spica glitter pens, Colored and Black Multiliner SP's, and the nice assortment of Sketch markers.

Check out Debbie Olson's blog for more companies who are celebrating World Cardmaking day. Have fun making cards today!

In honor of World Cardmaking Day I made a card. For those of you who know me this may seem like a shock- Marianne is actually making a card (by hand, not arranged on a computer and mass printed). I know, I know, Marianne is crazy for trying to make a card, but we all should step out of our comfort zone sometimes.

This is the card I made for my daughter's first birthday last week. I used a lot of Copic stuff on it, though at first you probably can't tell.

The easy part to see is the butterfly. This is a stamp from Lockhart Stamp Co. stamped onto Neenah Classic Crest cardstock with Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I can't remember what colors I used, except I know the purple is BV04.

Next, the antennae and sentiment I wrote with a 0.05 Multiliner SP. These pens are so smooth and so useful. I also used it to touch up lines on the butterfly that were mis-stamped. See the little yellow pearl in the corner? That was white before I colored it with my Y15 marker. I got those from Ellen Hutson.

You can't see it, but I took a clear Spica Glitter pen and scribbled a little on the edges of the white paper and pink paper, so that it looks like the paper is glittery even though it's plain.

Then, the silk flowers were white when I got them from Imaginesence, but now they've been colored. The pink one was airbrushed with RV14 then I touched it with a marker to make the spots, the yellow one was just colored directly with Y15 and YR65, no airbrush. The buttons in the middle of each flower were also white, but I dabbed with the tip of my marker onto each one to give it the mottled look

Be sure that when you leave a comment you either sign in so I can find your e-mail address to notify you, or add your e-mail to your comment. This makes it much easier for me to find you without hunting you down (Sorry, this prize is open only to residents of the US and Canada. You can still leave me a comment if you are from another country, I just can't send you a prize).

Have fun making cards and come visit me today if you're in Savannah!

I love the copic brush tip markers. I would love to see how to use the glitter pens and I would LOVE to be the owner of some of them also!! I love your help in learning how to better use my copics

Hope said...

My colorless blender is my favorite--I use it on almost every card I make. I also love the blog, I've learned so much! thanks, Marianne!

Sandy Hulsart said...

My favorite Copic product is the blender pen. Anything that will erase ink when I color out of the lines has to be the best creation in the world. Thanks for the chance for some blog candy. Happy Cardmaking Day.

Becky said...

I am pretty new to the Copic scene so I just have some Sketch markers. I do have to say that I love those and can't wait to add to my collection and would love to be able to try out some airbrushing and the glitter markers.

I love the Spica pens to add just the right touch of bling.

Renee V. said...

I have only a handful of Copic Caio markers and I love them. I also love the Atyou Glitter pens. They are fabulous for adding the perfect sparkle in a project!
This is really nice of you to offer this prize package! Thank you for such a wonderful and helpful blog too.
Hugs,

Kacey Elliott said...

Oh wow! This would be a fabulous prize considering I do not own one Copic product yet - this would be a great start! My husband said to pick some stuff for my birthday and so I came to check out your blog for some help (highly recommended by many stampers!). I can't give you a favorite yet, but I'm sure I will love it all! Thanks for offering such a fab prize!

jeneaevan said...

I love all of your tutorials and am just discovering the spica glitter pens.

Marcia said...

Copic markers have changed my rubber stamp preference. Prior to getting hooked on Copics, I only chose stamps that I didn't need to color. Now, I look for outline stamps so I have something to color. They're sooooo awesome! I'm thinking about dabbing into airbrushing with Copics in the future...we'll see. Thanks for your great tutorials!

shannors said...

Hi Marianne - Happy WCMD!!
I love ythe brush tip on the skettch markers as well as the range of colours - but my favourite thing would have to be the magic of the blender pen.
Thanks for all your tuturials - they are tremendous and oh sooooo helpful! :)

Monika/Buzsy said...

Happy WCMD! I only have Ciao markers so they have to be my fav... I just love simple coloring tips... something that a beginner can easily do. :o) TFS!

guyandcindy said...

Wow!! How generous! Happy card making day and keep up the good cards!

Sandra Douma said...

I loved to see a lesson in a video, if you could upload a video showing how to blend the colors

my favorite lesson I believe was about coloring fur (9/11/2008)

would be great to win one of these sets ! I am learning a lot here, I bought some copics originals , thanks for doing this !

Ilina Crouse said...

just one favorite copic product?!? That is a hard task. WHile I love the sketch markers, I would say the multiliners, as I can fix a image which hasn't stamped completely, or I can add details with it and look as it has been stamped :)

Paula said...

Your card is lovely, Marianne! You did a fine job! Happy birthday to your daughter!

Kiera said...

I love the selection of browns, but most of all I love the Colorless Blender...which seems to be a common thread in the comments!

Janet said...

I love the copic sketch markers and the glitter marker things:) They are the best markers on the planet!! I love them all!!!

Noel Thomas said...

Markers, Markers, and more markers. Those have to be my fav.!!!

Have a wonderful WCMD!!!!

Mari said...

Hmm, black hair seems like an excellent idea, but I'd also like to see a tutorial for bunched fabric. You know, like robes wrapped around a figure? Actually, any tutorial you're willing to post is great! :D

Nicole said...

Your blog is amazing! I would like to keep on seeing blending techniques. You give us beginners, alot to practice with. My favorite is the sketch marker color variety & also the blender, but hard to choose just one. Although the airbrush system is next on my list sooo.. we'll see if that quickly becomes a fav. Thanks so much for the awesome opportunity to win some stuff!! YAY! Good Luck to everyone! "Happy World Cardmaking Day" also. GO COPICS!!!

paradise45 said...

I just recently found your blog and enjoy your easy to understand directions, theories and coloring techniques. I have been learning a lot from your blog. The pictures and diagrams are a big help to a copic newbee like myself. I have yet to buy my first copic marker because I don't know exactly where to start.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Love the markers, but I'm really coveting the air brush system! LOL

I'd love to see a few videos demonstrating various techniques. I'm such a visual learner!

Happy birthday to your daughter - fabulous card Marianne!! My favorite Copic product is their sketch markers (cuz they have a nice brush tip and I can also use them with the airbrush kit) and when used in combination with the Spica Glitter Pens! I sooooooo wish I was closer to Savannah!!!!!! Happy WMCD!!!

Skye said...

I hvae only recently aquired some sketch markers, so those have to be my favorite. I keep looking for things to color now! I would love to see more tutorials with the colorless blender. I have one, but have yet to get the hang of it.
I love how your flowers turned out!

Lesa said...

I was wanting to try some of the Spica pens and what better way than to win them. Thanks for the great opportunity.

onewin said...

I think your card is beautiful, and it has given me some ideas to use my markers for scrapbooking. I have just begun using the ciao markers, and I am slowly building up my collection. I also have all the glitter pens which I LOVE and wish they made these in more colors.

Thank you for your great tutorials.

I love all my copic markers, but I'd have to say that the blender marker is a favorite...it holds so many possibilities!

Sue C said...

I don't have any Copics yet, so I can't coment on my faves, but I just discovered your blog (from Debbie's), and am VERY excited to learn! Copics are something I've been toying with the idea of getting, but I'm kind of intimidated by the number of choices. Have you or could you post a good beginner's selection of colors? Thanks!

Storky46 said...

Great card! Love what you do with Copics. I am new to them myself, but I am hooked! I would like more beginner stuff...particularly on blending from one color to another. Thanks!

Nettie said...

My favorite is the sketch markers. My DD bought me some and the rest is history I can't color without using them now.

anni said...

I just love your blog and can't thank you enough for writing all the tutorials! Just a wealth of information!! Thanks for the chance to win!!

Bravo! Beautiful card :) You should definitely do and show more!

I've just started using Copic pens and am trying to get the hang of using them. Any kind of tutorial would be helpful to me.

Saundra Grose said...

I love my sketch markers; people are always commenting on how intense the colors are on the cars I make and want to know what I used. I check your blog out every night and have learned so much and do appreciate your taking your time to instruct us all.

jean said...

i love working with the copics and am learning so much from your blogs. i would love to have the airbrush stuff but am afaid of it!! i still have a long way to go but am hopeful!! Thanks for all the help. Jean jeanmoe@gmail.com

Laura said...

I love my multiliner pens. They are so versatile!

Anne said...

I have really been enjoying the posts on specifics - how to color pumpkins, water, bushes etc. Other things I would love to see would be how to color:
- money
- clouds
- large surfaces (like background walls, sky etc)

P Myers said...

I do not have any of the copic products yet, but I have seen so many wonderful cards that have been made using the markers. They are definietly on my list. What a range of colors too!

Terri said...

The sketch markers are my favorite

DeeDee said...

OMGoodness....I only have a few Copic Sketch markers....but I sure do love them....I'm asking Santa for more!!! Any kind of tutorial would be great since I'm pretty new to Copics!!! THANKS for the FUN!!!

Bunny Cates said...

I would love to see a tutorial (including colors) for realistic foliage and flowers. Plants are so versatile and can really beautify ANY project, but getting a good color combo escapes me!

Jen said...

The markers are amazing! I can't believe the color range that there is with Copic. I would like to try the colorless blender pen, but I have not been able to yet. Happy card making.

Among The Stars... And Within Yourself said...

I am hooked on these markers! Maybe you could teach us a short art lesson. What I'd like to see are some "stylized free-hand flowers and leaves with an outline around them. Not necessarily with a black outline. The other thing is I've had my best luck with cougar white cardstock. SU cs is really splotchy for me. Maybe you could show some examples on how some cs is better/not better than others! Thanks! Angel

dorism6220 said...

I'd like to see what markers someone just starting out should get especially if they can't afford to buy alot at once.

I really like how the colors of the flowers match the paper.

retiredheather said...

I absolutely adore spica pens. They are wonderful. I only wish I had them all.

Nice card! Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge of Copic Markers with us! My favorite has to be the tutorial on the shadowing!

Kristin said...

I recently took the Copic plunge after resisting for over a year. Your blog actually helped me to take the plunge...you took the guess work and fear out of choosing my first colors and helped me understand not only how they were used but how to buy whatyou NEED! Thank you so much and Happy WCMD!

LucyL said...

My favorite are the skecht markers, I love love love them...

Amy said...

The only Copic product I've been able to try so far are the glitter pens and they are fantastic!!! Thanks for sharing the goodies!

Your blog is one of my absolute favorites! All of your tips are so valuable! Thanks so much!

I adore my Copic markers. Nothing can compare to their ability to blend, remove color and make my designs shine!

agreenegg said...

I don't own any Copics yet, but your tutorials are wonderful for any type of coloring. I like to color detailed flower images, and I am never quite satisfied with my shading, etc. I would love to see some tutorials on how to color florals to get a realistic look.

Thank you for the chance to win one of the awesome prizes.

Blessings,
Cyndi

Carla said...

I can't wait to get some of these - saw them in use today & I must have!! Those flowers are awesome! Thanks for the opportunity to win some! Carla from NC (carken98@yahoo.com)

Nancy said...

I love the range of colors! I don't have any copics yet, but used them once at my LSS. I haven't been quick enough, as soon as my LSS get the Copics in they are gone in a flash!

MediaLuna said...

To me the best product is the Copic ciao markers, great product for students with low resources.

Sara Peatross said...

Great prize! I would love to see more about color combos to color people, especially hair and skin tones.

luvhymns said...

beautiful card, I'm in awe with the coloring of the copics. I've been studying the blogs on them for weeks now and can't wait to experiment. smiles, .B.

Ddmac58 said...

What a great opportunity, thanks for the chance to win some great blog candy! I love all the tutorials on shading and which colors blend with each other.

lynzei said...

I love the sketch markers. They are my absolute favorite. I do really like the airbrush system as well. It gives such an even layer of color.

skimac2002 said...

Your blog is always so helpful. Can Copics be used on acetate? I guess I should do a search.

Kylah Marro said...

I admire the Copic markers very much, but that's all I have done is dmire them. I have yet to buy any and try them...I am a little scared HAHA Someday soon I will buy them and love them just as much as everyone else. Thanks for some awesome blog candy...if I win I will be a very excited girl with her very own copics!

scrapping4twins said...

I just discovered the copic markers and right now my fav color is RV00 Water Lily which matches the new Stampin Up pink. I"m slowly adding to my collection!

amazingpapergrace.com said...

My favorite product is the sketch markers - I love that the colors seem almost limitless and that if your heart desires you have the tools you mix your own.
--Becca

n8tvtexan said...

WOW! Marvelous card! All I've tried is the Copic Sketch. Now I gotta go find more. LOVE the airbrushed flowers!!!!!

Jana said...

Hard to pick a favorite Copic products... Love Sketch markers AND the Spica glitter pens! I used them both alot!

I must admit that I haven't yet searched your blog but if you haven't done so -- how to color with markers and create surfaces that look shiny -- glass, metal, etc.

Erica Hettwer said...

I love all the beginner info you give. The more the better! :D

ScrappinShelly said...

I LOVE the look at your markers give a card. Nothing quite like it!! I would love to win one of your prize packs.

Latisha said...

my favorite Copic thing is the Sketch marker, I LOVE THEM :)

Lisa Hjulberg said...

I love your tutorials, but my work is still so lacking. I don't know what I'm doing wrong! Maybe I'm too critical. Anyway, I especially like the ones where you focus on blending certain colors. I'm also pretty stumped about picking the right colors to blend together because the numbering system isn't consistent across every color family; i.e., there aren't matching numbers across the spectrum. What then? But thanks for all you do... your site is one I turn to often. I just hope someday you'll come to or near California so that I can attend your workshop in person!

Lisa j said...

I love copics....I just got mine and have been having fun experimenting. I love your posts and have them saved so I can refer back to them. I am going to purchase the airbrush attachment next....I can't wait to try that out.

Rhonda said...

Happy WCMD to everyone!! I am SO loving my Copic markers (and GinaK's marker club), AND I especially love this blog - I'm learning so much about how to use my Copic markers!! Thanks for a GREAT blog!

PS - PICK ME!!

lynnskie3 said...

I do not own any copic markers yet but love evrything I see done with them! Maybe I'll get lucky an "win" some to start my collection!

Erika M. said...

Let's see I like the Copics - my fav is the colorless blender - it definitely gets a workout.

Mindy said...

Love the sketch marker and the blender pen! Keep up the great tutorials!

Rebecca said...

I'm fairly new to copic markers and would like to see more tutorials on techniques. Especially color combinations for holidays. Thanks for the chance to win.

Cindy K. said...

I got my Copic's and was scarred to use them till I found your blogg.
Thanks so much for helping.

TC said...

I don't have just a favorite Copic product. I LOVE THEM ALL! I love the 00 and 000 colors for Inchie backgrounds. I use the Spica glitter pens for bling everywhere. Although purple is my favorite. And I use the Copic markers to color everthing. I use them more then my water color markers.

Shari said...

Hard to name a favorite when I love it all! I use the Sketch Markers and Spica glitter pens the most.

maggie said...

I just got a few colours and having problem creating a nice shading for dark skin... any tips you can share?
Thanks

Jessica Purvis said...

The only Copic product that I have so far is a clear Spica glitter pen, but I love all the colors that Copic offers and hope to someday own them ALL! Thanks for the chance to win.

artfulwhimsies said...

I dont have any copics yet~ but I would so love to have some. the examples of cards done with them are like no other!!! I hope I get the chance to play.

Christine said...

I've learned so very much from your blog - including lighting and shading tips that translate well to using colored pencils. I'm a new copic user so it is nice to see techniques that allow me to use what I have in the copics and stretch their usefulness by also using my prismacolor pencils. I wish art had been this fun when I took it in school!

usafcole said...

Wow, a lot of comments. I am new to your blog but am so glad that I found it. I have added it to my reader. I have not tried copics yet--working on a budget to start getting some. I have heard great things about them. For a newbie, I need advice about color combos.

Louise said...

I love all Copics!! but I also like the Spica glitter pens for my Christmas cards. Thanks for the chance to win. (and anything you demo is great... I'm learning!

Ida P. Krause said...

I love the color ranges of the Copic markers. Those flowers are wonderful! So realistic! I loved the bubbles tutorial you did not long ago. It was fasinating to see it come together. Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

Thanks for your generosity.

my latest fave Copic thing is the super fine lined black pens. I hve .05 and .03 and I LOVE THEM! I alter designs on stamps, fix boo boo's and doodle. They are great. Thanks for a great blog!

How about an article on other things we can use Copics on.

H. said...

I *love* my sketch markers and Spica pens! I would like to see more on working with fewer colors. I have 28 markers, and thus often have 2 of a particular color. Many samples work with far more of a particular color. I find that sometimes by the time I get it to look right, it's too wet and bleeds outside the lines. Thanks for the great blog!

linstamps said...

I love all the tips & tutorials - your blog seems to be a great resource, for beginners (ME) and more advanced artists! I can't comment on a favourite product (yet...!) but in terms of tutorials/techniques, "where to start" with colour selections would help a newbie like me. (Or maybe it's already been done & I just haven't done enough looking around on the site!!). Thanks for the ongoing inspiration.

Jess said...

I love what you do here! I can't wait to actually HAVE copics, so I can try all your tips!!! I just like to good color combos. I write them down so I can keep them in mind when I can finally afford them! :-)

ellerhkr said...

I love you card and the original Copic markers. They are so great for small spaces. Love you blog too. I'm just full of love today. Thanks.

I love everything that I have seen and read on your blog it is all so very, very helpful.

I love that you can refill and replace the tips of the markers instead of just buying new ones. What a great feature!

My favs are the copic sketch markers. The colors are so blendable - so fun to color with!!!

~Michelle~ said...

Copic Sketch Markers are my favorites....just love them...Clear spica glitter pens are great too!! I love all that you have on your blog so far....and find everything that you share so helpful! Thanks!!!

Edie said...

I would like to know more about learning to airbrush and get both smooth gradients and crisp lines. And can you airbrush the blender? Is it harmful to the air while you're working?

april_sp1 said...

I love all of the stuff you come up with!! It really inspires me to try new things with my markers. I have been dying to get some of the spica markers. I would love to see some more creations using those. I really like the sketch markers!

Lueyes said...

I love all the markers, but I also enjoy using the spica glitter pens and use them on almost everything.

Erin Glee said...

I got to play with Copic markers at a card class, so those would be my favorite~really liked them AND WANT SOME! Thank you for the chance! : )

Sarah/WAstamper said...

I love their markers - original, sketch, Ciao, spica...How can I choose just one??

Linda w said...

I have both, some Ciaos and Sketch markers. I have not done alot of coloring with them but I guess I just need to start practicing more. Just remembering that one has to practice is sometimes hard. You want that perfect image right away. Thanks for the chance to win.

vistagirl said...

I haven't been able to use Copics yet, but I would love to try! I have been amazed by the results I've seen on your blog as well as many others. Thank you for the opportunity to win a set!

Any copic product would be my favorite b/c I've been drooling over them ever since I got into stamping a few months ago. I just haven't been able to work any into my budget just yet.

I am just staring to get comfortable using markers and I would love to learn how to blend my colors for a more softer look!

Jannette said...

I have a few copics and I love them! To be able to pick just one product as a favorite is not possible.

i love my copics but i'm still having difficulty with blending...i know you've covered it but any other helpful hints would be appreciated!

donatelloh said...

Thanks for the opportunity. I absolutely LOVE the butterfly! I've been reading and enjoying your blog for quite some time. You are wonderful to share so much. Thank you. My favorite poducts are the sketch markers and the spica pens. I would also love to know if you'll ever teach in FL?

Cheers!

I really want to try Copics. All your tutorials make it seem possible! Thanks!

I am a Copic newbie as the LSS I instruct for just brought them in. In fact, tonight we had Sherrie Siemens in tonight to teach us a little and I played the rest of the night with the small collection I have. I am looking forward to adding some more pens to my colour families so I can blend more. I am sharing your blog with the gang at work so we can all learn. thanks for taking the time.

Have fun in Savannah, I grew up there. Please eat some hush puppies for me!

As far as what tutorials I'd like to see... more grass and sky. I feel like they add SO much to our images, and I've still not perfected my airbrushing techniques.

Thanks.

Melissa said...

Gotta say my favorite is the colorless blender. Such a perfectionist... I didn't like it when I accidently colored outside the lines when I was a little kid and I still don't now! The colorless blender has saved many a picture by allowing me to "erase" my boo-boos.

yoga mama said...

I don't own any Copics! I want to learn how to use them. I hope i get picked! that would be cool! mahalo for sharing your talents.

jstopka said...

Love, love, love your blog and tips for using copics. Thank you for sharing.

kathydaisey said...

I have just started to collect Copics, but I have been loving my Spica glitter pens since Ellen Hutson first started selling them. Thank you for all of the inspirational information that you blog!

Bill said...

right now my favorite has to be the medium brush multiliner. I find myself reaching for it all the time for illustration.

Elena said...

Very beautiful card! Thank you for this give away! May be a tutorial how to start your Copic collection? What is better for begginners?

9kids said...

I have never used copics and sure would love to try them ~ a beginner's tutorial would be a blast!

Tami said...

I've just found these markers and am in love!! I would have to say the blender is my favorite!

Leslie said...

Hi, I can't pick a favorite - I really want to try the airbrush system. Thanks so much.

Cyndy said...

I don't have any copic markers yet. My favorite scrapbook store just got some in and I plan on getting a couple this week. I wonder if I could only start off with 3 what would be the best colors to start off with. Any suggestions?

neskegley said...

I am new to copics. After seeing so many beautiful creations, I am definately thinking of investing in a set.

Elaine said...

Thanks for a chance to win! Unfortunately I don't own any at this time but I've seen such great colored projects using the markers that I hope I am one of the winners so I can join in on the fun of making some nice colored items!

IamDerby said...

I love copic sketch! I am an addict!

mitch47 said...

Love your daughter's card. She will treasure it when she gets older.
I also love my Copic markers. I have a combination of the Sketch and Ciao markers, and I am slowly adding to the collection, as I save up enough to buy more. I am hoping to get some Spica glitter pens soon...maybe for Christmas.

mrsr1 said...

I just ordered my FIRST set of Copic markers and can't wait for them to arrive. Would like to see beginner info (if it hasn't already by published).

sgc said...

I love the refills for the markers. I use mine so much--and it is wonderful to be able to refill them rather than have to buy a new one. Love the colors!

Amera said...

I would love to see tutorials on skin colors - or maybe it's just me! I feel like all my people end up looking flat and one toned!

Jennifer said...

I have started collecting this amazing markers & LOVE them... every time I buy more, my wish list grows again! Can't get enough! Thank you SO MUCH for the chance to win... woohooo!!

I love that with your markers, even a very untalented person can color a beautiful picture. They are very forgiving and allow you a second chance to get the coloring right. Thanks for the chance to win!

Kathy R. said...

I love all of the colors!!!! They are so easy to work with!!! I would like to see how to work with the air compressors, both the can and the large machine!!!

Linda said...

I am constantly amazed at all the different capacities that you can use the copic markers. I am just starting to acquire these, a couple at a time, but love the options they provide to my cards. Thanks for sharing all the ways you made use of the markers. Your card was beautiful.

scrappycandy said...

I would like to learn about all the advantages of copic markers and how to look "professional". Email: cbee@inbox.com. thanks so much!

Priscilla Heistad said...

I love your card. I love how you free-handed the sentiment...fab!


I hated coloring images before I "met" Copics. Now I color lots of images and sometimes don't even make cards! I love adding a touch of Spica pens at the end.

Yvette said...

Thanks for all the information you post on this blog. I am just trying to learn about Copics and get more into them. I would love to see some techniques on using clear, non-porous surfaces such as acrylics. Thanks so much!

Tamara said...

I don't have any favourite copic product because I don't own any yet. I love the idea of being able to blend without causing the paper to pill, and I love the spectrum of colours, and that you can take away colour, and move the colour around, but I haven't had a chance to do any of this for myself yet.

the Daily Scrapper said...

I would love to see some more shading done with just one marker.

Felicia said...

I left the states (to move to Germany, husband is active duty Air Force) right when the Copics were becoming popular and I opted not to get any just yet because I know I'd need someone to teach me how to use them right. Man I wish I had bought some. Now I have to order online but have no clue what to order first! It's so hard to decide which colors. Thanks for the chance to win!

Patti Gingrich said...

Nice job on your card Marianne! It's so soft and pretty. And thank you for the chance at the Copic goodies! My fave are the Sketch Markers...so many colors to choose from and I like the brush tip nib. Thanks for continuing to share all of your wonderful tips and techniques for Copics! ~Patti

Karen said...

Thanks so much for the incredible tutoirials, they always make sense to me and are easy to follow! I would like to see you come to the Dallas/Ft. Worth to teach a certification class soon. Best regards, Karen Easterling

Michelle said...

Well since I only have the orginal copics, I'd have to say those are my favorite! Although I've heard a lot of people talk about the sketch ones (and all the color choices there are) so trying those would be AWESOME! Thanks for the chance to win this awesome prize package!

Incredible CreatAbles said...

I have a question regarding the multiliner markers. It seems when I go to use them no ink comes out. The store where I bought them won't exchange markers. I don't know how full they were to begin with.

Char- The Mad Shopper said...

It has to be my sketch markers. I am slowly building up my collection.

lmb27 said...

I love the copic markers with the airbrush! Thank you for all your help. lmb27_81@yahoo.com

Janet Swofford said...

Great blog candy! I would like to see more on the basics of using copics. They are still scary for me!LOL Thanks for the chance to win.

SusieQ said...

Marianne - you're card is very nice! I love how you used the Multiliner to freehand the sentiment and the antennae.
In terms of what other tut's I'd love to look at, it would have to be how to use the principals that you have been giving us regarding shading and shadows in small areas. I love to use Stamping Bella stamps, and trying to achieve shading and shadowing in the small areas (e.g. face) is challenging - any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Michelle said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE all of your markers but I am especially attached to the Spicas!!!

thebragal said...

I don't see my post, so I am trying again. I'd love to see a post about colouring ground that is sand or dirt with sparse grass. Thanks

Tara said...

I am now on the search for copic products since reading so much about them on Michelle Wooderson's blog! I'm sure they will quickly become an addiction!! LOL!!

Lisa Cox said...

WOW what a GREAT prize:) I have been looking at all the images that everyone is coloring with copics. There so Beautiful. I just got my first Copic. Its the black one. I really want to try them. Maybe one day I can get some into my stash.:)

Thanks for the chance to win them.

Lil said...

I would like to see more on how to color faces in all skin tones and shadowing. Also how to create textures.

aguilar2 said...

I love my Copic Markers. Now my decisions to buy rubber stamps are based on which ones I can color in with my markers. I love all the shades of red that I can get. Red is absolutely my favorite color. I enjoy being able to read all the techniques that you put on your blog. So very helpful, many thanks!

Liz

Lil said...

I would like to see more on creating facial tones and adding texture.

resmith said...

I am new to the copic world.I have been wanting some for a while so a couple of my girls gave me a set to start with. I love how the color and the blending effect. I just recently purchased an airbrush system. Can't wait to give it a try.

jules said...

all of your markers are great. I do not own any, but a good friend of mine does, and she is kind to let me use hers.
i love the variety of colors. that is what is the favorite about your markers. and what you can do with them.

Nancy ~ Inkcicles said...

It is a Happy World Cardmaking Day indeed! My favorite Copic product is my black multiliner. I love it because no mater what coloring technique I use with my stamps I can go back with my multiliner and trace over the line to really make them pop.

Your tutorials have been instrumental with just about all my Copic coloring! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

:-)
