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!

Ooh I love it all!! The markers are my fave - fantstic colour range!

Maureen said...

I would love to see what your favorite color combos are for different hair colors. I have a fave combo for brown hair, but can't seem to find the right combos for blondes and redheads. Also, I'd like to see your choices for black hair (particularly Asian hair). Thanks!

Kim Ross said...

How do you choose just ONE product? If pressed, I would have to choose the blending solution because there are so many fun things to do with it!! Thanks for the chance to win! :)

nannyjkm said...

I do wish the Copics were available in Australia. I just love what you can do with them,( although I am still learning. )I have recently returned from a
wonderful holiday in the US and Canada where I bought a very small
selection of Sketch Copics.
Thankyou, Jane

Fay said...

My favorite Copic product is the Colorless Blender. I can't get over what a "miracle" this solution is!

leenda said...

Lovely card! Your daughter will cherish this card one day! My favorite product is all the Sketch markers I can get my hands on!!

Elaine said...

Hi! Beautiful job as always! I'd like to see how you 'make snow' with copics....I know it probably involves a blue or shades of, but can you show us some options?

Tricia said...

Your card is lovely - I wouldn't have known you don't make them all the time if you hadn't mentioned it! It is hard to choose a favorite product but I will say I love the range of colors available - I'm crazy about color!

Doris said...

I don't have any of Copic products, nut I saw many wonderful exasmples of using markers, i want to laern how to use them:)

snappystamper said...

All the Copic line is great!!! Thank you for your awesome tutorials!

Lynette said...

I love your blog. It was your blog that gave me the confidence to buy some markers. Although I have been reading your blog since day one I am still a newby. I get the impression that you more often blend your colors without the blending pen. What would be the advantages/disadvantages of blending without the blending pen or is it just a matter of how experienced you are.

Donna said...

I bought a beautiful stamp for Christmas cards. It's a little lamb looking up @ a magnificent star, all enclosed in a snow globe. I colored with watercolor crayons, as my attempt @ using copics was NOT GOOD. Any pointers for coloring lambs and snowglobes?

DebbyG said...

My favorite is sketch markers.

Susie said...

I LOVE my Sketch markers. All of my other coloring tools have been sadly neglected since I began acquiring my Copic pens. berkerster@gmail.com

Deb said...

Love your blog! It gives a beginner like me some direction!!

Shelly said...

I have been using the markers and LOVE them, so many possibilities. My next thing to try (can't wait!) will be the air brush system!

Carrie said...

I love the sketch markers and the results are amazing when you know how to use them. I took your certification class and it was awesome. I have read your blog since day one and I gain more knowledge from each article - thank you.

Bev said...

I don't have any Copics yet, but hope to purchase some markers soon. After reading some of the blogs that use them, I can't wait to try them!

jbcorson said...

LOve them all, but seriously love the blender pen and the glitter pens!! Thanks

Terri said...

I LOVE all things "Copic" but since I just purchased the Airbrush System (I got Kit #1) I would LOVE to see things that can be done with it!

Amy Johnson said...

Thank you for the opportunity to win some blog candy. My favorite copic product is of course the copic markers. I absolutely love them. They are so bright and easy to color with. As far as tutorials, just keep on showing more coloring tutorials. I can never get enough.

Tracy said...

My fav is the Sketch markers and I love that the ends are marked! Great details on your card.

Peggy Maier said...

So glad you started this blog! It has been invaluable to me. I'm subscribed thru your RSS feed so I don't miss a thing. I guess my favorite product would be that wonderful little blender pen - it does SO much (AND takes care of those mistakes, too!) I find myself using Copics every time I make a card-my other coloring tools are feeling neglected. I don't have many Copics, but am adding more slowly but surely!

Karen said...

More coloring and blending tutorials. I have a beginning set of Copic Sketch markers and I love them, but I am truly a beginner so would love some more help.

DeniseB said...

I have a mixture of Sketch and Ciao markers, so I'd have to say they are both my favorite product. Love the brush tip on them.
DeniseB

Becky Carafa said...

I have a mix of sketch and ciao, but will have to say I like the sketch better because the color is right on the cap where I can see it! And your card turned out very nice!

Book Bling said...

I love all your tutorials but the one I need is where you come to my house and help me :) Can we work that out? More on blending and color combos would make me happy.

lia said...

I love the spica glitter pens!
I would love to learn more about air brushing!
Your card is beautiful!
stampinstro@aol.com

Amanda R said...

I love copic markers for the brush tips and the fact that I don't get marker all over the place while I use them. Great for messy people like myself!

Anne Holliday "Connie" said...

The Spica trick is so cool.

Sally said...

I'm with everyone else - how do you pick one product? I love the sketch markers, the colorless blender, and the Spica glitter pens! I've loved every Copic product that I have gotten! Excellent company with excellent products!

Tessa said...

WOW! I didn't know you could do so many things with Copics. I don't know that I have a favorite product. I just know about the markers.

Fjola said...

Sketch markers, blender pen and solution, spicas, multiliners...they are all right there at the top of my list. Your card is beautiful. It's great to see the markers used for things other than paper.

cards4u said...

Thanks for the chance to play! I love my Sketch markers and black multiliner.

maiahs_momma said...

LOVE the sounds of that :)! Love these markers, even though I don't have many. Thanks for a chance to win these goodies :)!

Beautiful card. I'd like to see more on blending colors!!

Shawninaz said...

I recently purchased the airbrush sprayer at a convention. I'd really like to see some tutorials and techniques on this great tool.

Carrie said...

Well I don't have any copics yet but I love all that I've seen. Keep up the good work and Thanks for the chance to win.

Linda Stamps said...

Being relatively new to the copic world I'd have to say my fave is the sketch markers ~ since I only own those (2 to be exact). The first time I put them to paper I heard angels sing! They're sooo nice to work with - of course you already knew that.

Joyce Pritts said...

This is just beautiful. The detail in that butterfly is amazing. I love marker because they are so easy to work with and have so many possibilities.

Brooks Studio said...

Hi Marianne!
Sketch markers are my favorite, but the ABS is a close second! I'm still on the learning curve with that gizmo, but am excited every time I take it out to play with.
Thanks,
Jan

Lila H said...

Well my favorite is the Sketch Marker(s) - cause that is usually where it all begins..... from there the airbrush system...

Kimm said...

I would like to learn how to color sky and clouds. Love the Copic products!

Holly said...

Well I think you did a great job on your card Marianne! My favorite copic product is the sketch markers. I use them all the time now!
usyungs@gmail.com

kc_froglady said...

Marianne this is wonderful! So pretty and I love that you used the markers to color on the buttons and the little pearl as well as the flowers - I do that also :) Custom fit coloring LOL!

Donalda's Blog said...

Oh what a awesome card. I love it.
I have to say the sketch markers are by far my favorite and I don't know what I would do without them.

As for tutorials hon you have done a awesome job teaching us so many things. You are just grand dear and thanks for a chance to win a prize. Now to go play

christina d said...

I'm new to the blog, but I would love to see techniques done with a limited supply of colors. I'm just getting started on getting markers and I can just get the basic primaty ones. Also the blender would be my fav marker.

Lori Barnett said...

Well the Sketch Markers are my fav!! I mean really.....who doesn't like the markers?! LOL And what a cute card you made :) Happy WCMD everyone!

I have a mix of ciao's and sketches and love them all!! I love your shading tutorials and would love to see as many as you'd like to show us!

Clearly Inspired said...

Awesome blog candy! Thanks for the chance to win! The markers are my favorite.

I would like to see more about shading. I can't seem to learn enough about it.

bagherra said...

I love the color combos like in the pumpkin. I'm just staring with Copics so they help with my buying decisions.

Lovetostamp said...

I hated to color until I purchased some of the sketch markers. Now I can't stop coloring. I would like to learn more about air brushing. I always look forward to reading your tutorials each day.

Lauraline said...

My favorite Copic product? I love them all! I can't choose between those three: Sketch markers, airbrush system and SP multiliners.

Charmaine (CharmWarm) said...

I LOVE my Copic markers, period! I think my new favorites, though are my T1, T5 and T9. I never used to color with black because it just looked so flat. Now with these grays, I look for any excuse to color something black! LOl

Cindy said...

These are the best markers available on the market....
I want them ALL...I don't have
a favorite I just LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

Stef H: said...

EVERYTHING is fabulous. I started using Copics (and I only have about 14 of them - so far) when I first saw your "I Like Markers" site. ALL your work is beautiful. I am awed by what a talented artist you are and your information has added to my creativity. You are one of my very favorite sites & I love getting your emails. My goal is to one day own ALL the Copic pens!

Stef H

Pamm said...

I am so glad you started a blog....love the Copics...even a beginner like me can color! I need more colors!!!!The sketch markers are my fave.....my husband thinks that I have lost my mind, can't imagine why I NEED so many colors! TFS

Toni said...

I love my Copic Ciao markers and I am so happy I found your blog. I have learned a lot on the use of these great markers. When you stamp a image what ink are you using, so that it doesn't run when filling in the image with the markers? Thanks

Jill said...

I LOVE Copic Markers! Granted I only have seven of them but they are my favorite!!! Love your Blog! I've bookmarked it so that I can come back and visit!

Jackie said...

I love the sketch markers! I would like to see a couple of tutorials on the airbrush system (unless you already did that and I missed it). I don't have it yet, but I hope to one day soon.

Jodi said...

my new favorite (they all are) are the SP multiliners-I LOVE THEM!

Carmen said...

I love my Sketch markers - and I love all the tutorials you do... every time I read one I learn a little bit more!

Susan said...

Hi Marianne! This is the way to get comments on your blog - lol!

I would love to be entered in the drawing because I just LOVE Copics. My favorite item from Copics is Marianne! But seriously, I don't think that is what you meant ... so I will say I love the Sketch Markers. They are just amazing to work with.

However, I just ordered the ABS-1 air brush system so that may be my new favorite by next week.

Thanks for the rockin' class in Charleston. I learned so much!

Susan M.

Kimbo said...

I love the colorless blender and all the neat things that you can do!!THanks for all of your wonderful and tireless tuts!! You rock Marianne!!
Kim

Diane said...

I don't have any copics yet, but have seen the limitless possibilities from these wonderful markers. I would love to win them! Thanks.

Debbie Fisher (debbiedee) said...

I am just new to Copics and own 5 of them. Any thing you share is helpful to me. I would love to win more of them.
Your card is stunning!

Jennifer said...

I love the vibrant color you get with the copic markers but I LOVE the sparkle you get with the glitter pens!!! Thanks!

stacy said...

I just bought my first set of Copics...very exciting. I am looking forward to learning from you and the design team. Thanks

kerry said...

OK....after taking the Charleston Certification class, My FAVORITE product has to be the colorless blending solution....There are so many more possibilities with this product that I would have never learned about had I not seen your amazing creations...One is now posted on my blog for WCMD
www.thestampingbug.blogspot.com

Thanks for so much inspiration!
Kerry

scrappycandy said...

I love the fact that you gave so much detailed help. I am a newbie. And thanks for the giveaway..how fun!

Just Jo, Joe with no e said...

I love the colors of the Copic markers - such a great variety! But I love the glitter of the Spicas...they often add just the perfect touch!

Aimee said...

I would have to say the markers are my favorite... I use them so much when making my cards and I always want more of them...

Kim said...

Happy Card Making Day! Woo-Hoo...I am off to create shortly! Wonderful card...it's beautiful! I would love to see more tutorials of shading with different directions of sunlight...I still can't get the concept of the different dirctions of sunlight and how to shade properly! I love my Copic Ciaos!
Hugs~ Kim

Cindy said...

I don't own any copics, yet. I started with prismacolor markers to see if I could do anything with them. So far so good, so I may end up being a copic convert, particularly because that airbrush thing looks like a gotta have item. I love all tutorials because I can always get something out of them or be reminded of something that I may have already known. Thanks for all your time you have to put on this blog.

marycrispness said...

I LOVE the Copic Sketch markers. I just recently purchased a bunch and this has moved me in a different direction in my art to use all those wonderful line image stamps that I possess but don't use. Coloring has always been one of the hardest challenges for me, but not any more! Thanks for all you do - you're blog is FANTASTIC!

Maria Gurnsey said...

My favorite product is the ciao simply because it's all i've ever used. But I really love em!!!

Pat said...

With every new Copic-colored card I see, they are moving up higher and higher on my wish list. It's awesome what is being done with them. So, my favorite would have to be -- anything I could get my hands on to try!

Melissa said...

Thanks for all the great tutorials, Marianne! I love your blog, and check it every day for my copic fix. :)
With winter coming soon, I would love to see a tutorial on coloring snow and snowmen. And I will second Maureen with her request for color combo suggestions for different hair colors.

Nancy said...

Wow! I didn't know that you could use copics on flowers, pearls and buttons! I'm new to the copic world and have yet to see my first markers (which should be in the mail by now) and I look forward to learning how to use them.

I would like a tutorial that could show how to get the color to go from dark to light until it disappears... not sure what that's called... in decorative painting we call it "floating" - which I can do - I just have no idea how to do it with copics. A video would be nice. ;) LOL

Am I too vague? I'm a beginning beginner so talk to me like I'm 5 and I'll be good. LOL

Lorraine said...

I love the Sketch markers and the blender pen and have an airbrush system on my Christmas list! I follow your blog like it's a class that I'll be tested on later. Thanks for the great tips and I'm looking forward to the continuing education!

Karen said...

I would have to say I love the spica glitter pens as these are the only ones I own. I would love to try some copics. What a generous blog candy.

nina said...

Can't say I have a fave since my first set of Copics (Ciaos) are on their way - but I'd have to say your site was really instrumental in my decision to try them, so thanks! And thanks for the chance to win...

kristinorth said...

I love my Sketch markers! Of course I'm still learning to use them! I'd like to see more basic blending on stamped images. Thanks!

inkedx2 said...

Would love to win some Copics! I would love to see some ways to use Copics to make background.

Thanks for a chance to win soe goodies!
Robbie

Stacy said...

I don't know about a favorite product, but would love to find out how and which colors to use for dark hair. I have straight black hair and can not reproduce the look on paper, it ends up looking like a scary black blob on the images little heads! Ick

Lynn said...

My favorite product is the blender. What fun to play with!

Deb Neerman said...

Tooo hard to pick just one!

I use my black and blender markers the most though, that's for sure!

I'm an email subscriber and I'd just like to say thanks for all the insight and inspiration!

Angie said...

I have never seen airbrushing with copics so I would love to see that! Thanks so much and happy WCMD!

Angie

Debby said...

Well the markers are fabulous as you know. I have say my favorite product are the spica glitter pens. I use them on everything!

Katherine (beadfreak22) said...

I adore my Copic Sketch Markers!!! I rarely make a card without them anymore. The Spica Glitter Pen is on my wishlist. All of your tutorials ROCK, but I'd love to see more on coloring skin. Thanks for being such an awesome teacher and inspiration!

flourishes said...

I would have to say I love it all...finding Copic markers was the one best thing I have found since I have started stamping....well not including top grade polymer stamps. The wide range of this product gives the stamper complete flexibility and control. Awesome all the way around!

Katie Renz said...

Hi Marianne,

I of course love the markers, but also adore the Spica Glitter Pens. I use those all the time for accents.

I can never get enough of shading and shadowing.

Northern Light said...

I'm so happy to have discovered this blog. I want to learn more about the spica glitter pen and also about airbrushing. Thanks for all the inspiration and incredible tutorials.

Sandy

Mary said...

I can't get enough of Copics! (and my collection is growing!) Great card you created. I love your beginner tips as that is where I am at and check in often to see what's new. My favorite product is the sketch markers!

skyviewstamper said...

I love my markers! I wish you would offer a certification class for us beginners! I know I have so much to learn about the markers and your blog is perfect teacher but real life would be awesome!! Thanks for great chance to win!!

kathy.jackson25@comcast.net

wsdanielson said...

I LOVE all of your tutorials. I feel I have learned a great deal from your daily posts. I would love to see a video tutorial on air brushing. I like that you show your own picks of colors to use. It is so helpful - not only to me but to my LSS where I get the Sketch markers. Whenever I go in, they ask what Maryanne has taught that I need more colors for. tee hee.

Jen said...

Happy Card making day! And thank you for the opportunity to possibly win a prize. Love your daily "coloring" tutorials. It's great education

Lesa said...

Your blog rocks girl! I wanted to go to the copic certification in Washington next month, but no money! Please please make sure and do the one in Utah next year cause I am all over that! I am a sketch girl! Airbrushing and I have a thing going on. I would so love to learn from the master. Thanks for the opportunity to win! Pick me, Pick me! ;)

Trina said...

I have the ciao markers and am really enjoying using them!! I think my fav. product is the micro-line pen, because when I draw with this, it doesn't run if I want to color over it. It's so hard to find a good pen!!

Michelle said...

What an awesome giveaway! I have a small selection of sketch markers and I love them! I think lipstick red and BG10 are my favorite colors! As for tutorials, I love what you've done so far, but I particularly appreciate the coloring/shading lessons - I need lots of help in that area!

Tracy said...

oh my goodness so generous!!!! Thank you for the opportunity!! I hate to admit this but I don't actually have any copics yet so I don't have a favourite yet.

Denise said...

I would love to see more tutorials using water and ocean type things how to do water and make it look real! Listing the colors used too!

Diana said...

Hi Marianne:

I'm really loving the few Copic markers that I have...as for future posts, it would be neat to see a "real time" blending session (like a video). I don't know if I'm coloring too slowly or what, but whenever I blend, I get alot of bleeding, so it would be nice to see the technique "live" :)
Thanks for the chance to win!

guyandcindy said...

I don't have any Copic markers yet.. i was introduced to them at Comic Con last year but didn't pick any up... BAD MOVE because i have wanted some ever since. A friend at work just purchased a set and let me play with them for a while and they are wonderful. I am not a big card maker but i play with watercolors and pastels right now and i love how the Copic markers blend. I visit your blog often because i love your little tutorials, and i find them extremely helpful with my sketching skills. THANKS for them. clowry@vwd.org

Lorie said...

I just love your markers...plain and simple. They turn a so-so project into something wonderful! Happy World Card Making Day everyone!

Diane said...

I just recently purchased my first set of 12 Ciao markers and I honestly don"t know why I didn't buy them sooner. I love the vibrant color and ease of use, they just glide on your artwork and no streaking. I have since ordered 6 more new colors. Am new to your blog but just find it so informative. Thanks for all the detailed info. It is a wealth of information.

JenMarie said...

Oh, these marker ROCK! I also LOVE the spicas!!!

julie said...

I love reading your blog. I am new to copics but my collection is growing. I like how you have all different levels of posts.

Carolyn said...

Wow...we all would love to win this prize.

Thank you for all of the tips and samples you have provided the last several months. They are most helpful.

HAPPY CARD MAKING DAY!

Alyssa said...

I love my Copics, but I have just found your site. I'm sure my art will get better once I look through for tutorials and what not. I need more help picking out the right shades to blend. Thanks for the awesome chance! :o)

tjupton said...

I don't own any copics yet, but all information on your blog has helped me learn how to work better with the markers I do have. Thanks for the chance to win your very generous blog candy.

Thao said...

I love the Sketch markers the most. I'm trying to decide whether or not to invest in an airbrushing system, so I'd love to see more information on that.

2stampis2b said...

I love the Sketch markers!

Sandy in NH said...

THANKS FOR MAKING IT SO EASY FOR US, WHO ARE ON A BUDGET, TO HAVE JUST ABOUT ANY COLOR WE DESIRE! WE CAN EVEN HAVE BUTTONS AND FLOWERS TO MATCH ON OUR CARDS! SANDY IN NH

Mel said...

I'm trying to learn more about the Copics---your tutorials are so helpful!

Dawn said...

Hm... I love all the markers/pens. I don't think I can narrow it down more than that!!

I know this might sound silly, but other than finding individual markers for sale on websites, most sets don't apply to me with the markers I already own. Do you have a prefered vendor to purchase Copics? =)

Carole said...

I just learned about Copic markers a few weeks ago and have ordered 30 sketch markers so far. So, I don't have a favorite yet, but am looking forward to trying the glitter pens. Thanks for all the info you share on y our blog. I appreciate it!

Keri Lee Sereika said...

I don't need to be added to the prize list...I just had to say...WAY TO GO MARIANNE!!!I LOVE YOUR CARD!!! I hate that you have that beautiful handwriting....but I love you nonetheless!!!

Debbie said...

I really like the copic original markers and your tutorials are so helpful. what a great give-a-way. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Froggy said...

hmm..i am new to the world of copics and the sketch markers are my favorite so far...I only have 12 of them though! LOL Love your blog, its helping me learn to use them tremendously!
Thanks! Happy WCMD!

Courtney said...

I love my modest collection of sketch markers! I think I would like to see your favorite color's too and what you like to color the most. Thanks Marianne, and the card is cute!

Holly Craft said...

Very pretty card! I love all the Copic products...I love to write with them and color with them! Love the Spicas too! Just wish they could come across as beautiful in photos as in real life. Have a great time in Georgia!

Alicia said...

I love the the 100's of color combinations with the Sketch Markers. I also love how vivid the color is!

I'd be lost without your tutorials. Thank you for sharing!

Hugs and Blessings
Alicia

Hurray for world cardmaking day! I love my COPICS... Since then, I haven't touch my regular markers. Thank you so much for the awesome iMarkers blog! =D

vannasmom said...

If I had to choose just one , it would be the colorless blend ... Ihave heard great things about that!1 Never tried it though!!
thanks for a chance to win!!

Charmaine said...

I haven't had the opportunity to try any of the copic products yet...but hope that changes soon as I see so many wonderful things made with them.

Charmaine

Jennifer Love said...

What an awesome card! I LOVE to use my Copic markers to alter things to "go" with other things I've colored. Just superb! Keep up the good work. heee!

Rachele Funk said...

I love the fact that the markers come in 2 sizes so I don't have to buy the large one of the colors I won't use as much and that they have color tones - light, medium, dark- in the same color. Makes them so easy to blend! WOOOHOOOO

Jan Hunnicutt said...

I'll soak up anything you have to tell us! I'm still back in July trying to catch up on your blog! Your card is great, I love the way you used your markers to color embellishments that "were" white. My e mail is; gonestampin@gmail.com
thanks for a change to win!

Brenda said...

Lovely card, the butterfly is beautiful. I don't have a favorite as I don't have any yet. I do love coloring and would love any help that you can give. Thanks for the chance to win. Have a great WCMD

Dawn said...

They all look fabulous, but I just don't have the budget for them yet. I love that they don't overlap and the shading is really nice. Wish me luck so I can start working with them!

Deborah said...

I have just "discovered" the multiliner pens and they are awesome, but the Copic markers are still my favorite product. I use the blender less than I used to after taking a class from someone who had been to your workshop.

Jeanine said...

I would like to know more about choosing your markers for blending and color combatability (if thats a word).
Love the blog.

Elaine said...

I'm new to your blog, but I'd love to learn more about light sources and shadows. Thank you for this oppty!

Lori A. said...

Beautiful card! What I love about Copics is how blending can give so much dimension and "realism" to pictures.

Nancy said...

A chance to win just by talking about Copics - how cool is that?! I love coloring with my Ciao markers but after seeing all the great airbrushing, kinda sorta might need to get a few Sketch one day! I'm anxious to get the multiliners for my own drawings too. The Copic product I use ALL the time is the Spica pens. Oh my -- it's hard *not* to use them on everything!! Love my Copics!

I love all of my sketch markers even though I'm not very good at blending them. I also like my Spica Glitter markers for everything! I would like to a have color chart I can carry in my purse so I know which markers I have and which one's I want to purchase. It would also be great if it would tell you which colors coordinate your together by number.

JC said...

I love the markers! I need to get some more!

Linda Palmer said...

I love Copic Markers. I have a few and love how smooth they are. I've been reading your blog since you started it and have learned a lot, but I still have a lot to learn about shading etc. Thanks for a chance to win these awesome markers.

Sara said...

I can't tell you what I love about copics because I don't own any!! =) But I still subscribe to your blog and read it every day because I am living with the hope I will one day try these fun markers out. If I win it would certainly give me a great start. =)

Jennifer said...

I only have the Ciao markers right now so those are my favorites, so far.
I can't wait to watch my collection grow.
I can't think of anything in particular that I would like to see, you already have so many great tutorials

Jeana said...

I don't have Copics, yet! I would love to, though.
I think the airbrush thing would be my favorite Copic Product. I used to have that tool with the squeeze thing on it. I used it all the time. Copics would be the grown up version of that thing!!!

nancy said...

I can't comment on the Copic markers because I haven't taken the plunge yet. Very Very close especially after ready all the comments. I would love to see more tutorials on gift ideas.
Thanks for this great opportunity

I have learned sooo much from your blog. Thanks for sharing your knowledge of Copics with us beginners. Like some other posters I would like to see some help with combos for blondes & redheads. As for my favorite product.. if says Copic it's on my list of favs.

Cindee Stacey said...

I've learned so much from your blog and it's really helped me to get better with using my Sketch markers. I'd love to see some more color combinations! Thanks for the chance to win COPIC stuff! And your card is wonderful! You should make them this way more often! :-)

What a Treat!! I don't have any Copics yet, love seeing all the examples of their seemless blending. I like how they layer to create depth to an image, with a huge array of color selection. THanks for the chance.

Heidi Kimmerly said...

I love the markers which are my favorite,,,, love the tutorials that you give as well - love the blender solution - that stuff is magical! Thanks

Peggy M. said...

I love the Copic Sketch markers, particularly their blendability. I would love to see you do more color combos like you did with the sand color marker, especially your computer generated triads, etc or could you teach me how to generate my own?

Mary Kelly said...

The blending capabilities of Copics just leave me speechless! I'd love more tutorials on highlights on anything and brown hair.

Jennifer Roach said...

Ohhh what a fabulous prize. I just enjoy learning as much as possible about colour combinations and shading.

Julie said...

I would love to try my hand with some Copics!

Expressions of a Creative Mind said...

For me it's toss up between the Copic Ciaos and Spicas, how can I choose just one?

And you're in Savannah today...Ahhhh!!! I could have come and see you.

minnamade said...

I'm pretty new to Copic. The multiliners are very impressive - so smooth and the finest lines I've ever been able to produce.

Looking forward to trying out some of the markers next!

Kevin and Amy said...

Wow, awesome blog candy and very cute card. I found you through Debbie Olsen's blog, so I've seen lots of Copic inspiration over there. I am not yet an owner of any copics, but I'm fascinated by the air brush system. It adds such depth to whatever project you are working on!

Angelina said...

I love the markers!Happy Card Making Day!

Claudia said...

Wonderful blog ! I'd love to see a tutorial for people like me who have never used Copic's before.

SilverDragoness said...

I love your tutorials very in depth and helpful. I really enjoy the ones on shading. It would be nice to see one on sky/bodies of water. I think the blender pen is one of the coolest products because of the unique effects you can create.

Carolen said...

It would have to be the colorless blender pen. Still don't have the airbrushing system. But I must say, I adore the Spica glitter pens and use them on nearly every card!
Thanks!

Desiree said...

I want you to do tutorial on how to make shadows with copics. I know you have done it before, but it is difficult, and I want to se it on clothes and people. Thank you!

Godchick said...

Oh...how fun! I love the Copic markers *of course* and have also developed a particular fondness for the Spicas. I'd love to hear some ideas on hair colors as well, particularly for redheads.

Pat (mspfd) said...

My absolute favorite thing about Copic markers are the colors that make coloring and shading faces so easy. I could not live without my skin white marker and blender! Wish I had the whole range of Copic colors. It would be a dream to win -- Thanks for the opportunity.
