Two images I colored made it in the 2011 Copic Catalog. I am sooo stinking excited. The name of the stamp sets weren’t listed, so I thought I better do it here.

The first image is from Crafty Secrets Roses Stamp set. It was stamped on Express It! Blending Card in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Copic Markers. I didn’t write down the colors and I colored the images back in September, but I think the colors were R27, R29, R39, R89, BG93, BG96, BG99.

I love this Rose image. It is sooo much fun to color!

I love Crissy Armstrong’s Fairy images from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps. For my second image I chose the Bird Fairy. Again the image was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I am sorry, but I really don’t recall all the colors used on the Fairy. I know there were quite a lot.

Wait until you see the rest of the artwork in that catalog. I can’t believe my images made it in. All the other artwork is hand drawn and colored and really takes your breath away. Copic added each artist’s name and blog address to their page.

Have a wonderful day! Try to stay warm. It’s snowing here …. again. Just the thought of shoveling snow AGAIN makes me sigh. Both boys are home sick with colds. Winter is so not my season and living this far North is definitely not for the Johns’ family! 6 more months….

Hugs and smiles

  1. Beate, this IS very exciting news!! I’m so happy for you! The rose image is stunning. I love all the depth you’ve created with your coloring skills. You rock!!!

  2. How stunning! It’s about time you were acknowledged for your creative and beautiful artworks!

  3. Congratulations! Your work is outstanding and the rose is to die for. The fair image looks lifelike. TFS!

  4. Congrats Beate… your work is STUNNING!!! I’m not surprised it made it in… way to go!!!

  5. Congratulations Beate! That is AWESOME! But, OF COURSE your gorgeous coloring would make it into the catalog! You rock those markers, my friend!

  6. Congratulations, Beate! I can see why they chose your work – it is outstanding! The rose does not look like a drawing that’s been colored. It looks like a real, 3 dimensional rose is lying on the table – that’s just how good you are with shading. The fairy is also one of my favorite stamps. She is so beautiful, and you colored her perfectly.
    I wish I could send some warm weather your way. I live in southern Alabama, and although we’ve had some pretty cold days this winter, yesterday was beautiful – in the 60’s sunny, and breezy. It felt like spring.Of course, it will be back cold this weekend, but we don’t have to deal with the snow.
    Take care!

  7. How exciting for you – but no surprise to any of us.
    I’d send warmer weather if I could, but it’s below freezing here too.

  8. Hi Beate, we’ve spoken on here before, and I am faithful follower. I read and learn more than comment. 🙁 sorry. I do believe you remember me from SCS, as we have spoken about it before.
    My previous “name” was mrikitty. You may or may not remember the story of why I am no longer a member. At any rate, the people involved with getting me off the site were in wrong to begin with, and are no longer part of that community. I am reaching out to members in good standing that might be willing to speak up on my behalf, as it has been 3.5 years now, and everyone deserves a 2nd chance especially, when it was a bogus issue in the first place.
    If you are willing to help me, please email me at:
    susanscraps AT comcast DOT net.
    They still have my gallery up, which is not fair and can be “stolen’ if you know what i mean…to me it would only be fair to let me back in.

    Thanks, Susan

  21. Congrats! Your coloring is amazing and you truly deserve it. Got some more copics per your recommendation. I know you hate winter and I will be sad when you leave, but I hope it is really warm at your next destination. Just think how happy your heart is with all that shoveling exercise:D If we lived closer my son would shovel for you. He loves it. He even asked for a shovel from Santa…he got it! Santa is no fool. That just means less shoveling for him *wink* Heading to SS today, but with kids in tow so it won’t be as much fun. Hope your boys get better. Hugs!

  22. Beate, your roses are absolutely breathtaking. I cannot imagine Copic NOT wanting to feature your coloring – you are amazing!!! Congratulations, my friend!!!
