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 a new book by Colleen Schaan and 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, explains the coloring/numbering system, details how to pick good blending groups, teaches a number of blending techniques through illustrated tutorials, and de-mistifies 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.

I was excited that Colleen picked one of my cards to be featured in her book. The stamp I used for this card is called Ophelia, designed by Crissy Armstrong  from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps. Crissy’s fairy stamp are so much fun to color! 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 or to purchase the book (also available in PDF electronic download).

  112. Wow, this fairy card is simply gorgeous and your coloring is so life like. I consider myself a beginer and am still aquiring my color collection of copics. I started with floral images (the easiest), and am working way up. I think faces, skin, & hair, are the real challenge and am working way up to accomplishing techniques in those areas as I feel those are the hardest to make look so life like. So your card would definitely be a starting point to achieving that. I would definitely love to be able to color at your calibur.

    Color combos…there are so many to choose from. I colored some areas with grey to give depth to a white paper cup using c-0, c-3 and c-5. The cup had a tan lid which I shaded with E50 and E53. I will reach for those color combos again.

  248. Oh Beate, your card is fabulous. I enjoy learning from you on Splitcoaststampers. I just know that this Copic book will be filled with lots of info and this book would be a much loved resource. I’m pretty new at Copics and purchased RV11, RV17 and RV19. I have discovered that the latter two are too similar and the RV11 is too different. I really need work on blending!

  249. OMG this book would be wonderful!! I am just getting into the Copic world and everything is a favorite! Will be checking out this book and looking to order it…although winning it would be a blessing!

  250. As usual wonderful card! My favorite copics are the browns, no maybe the greens, or the yellows…..oh phewy! I love em all, lol

  251. Wow! I love that fairy!! My favorite combo is Rv55&66.

  252. Hi, Well I only have one Copic at this time, it was a gift and I’m bitting at the bit to learn how to use Copics and start collecting them.
    I would love to find a class in my area but haven’t been able to so far (zip 53215) if anyone know of classes. I’d travel up to 50 mis.
    Anyway the Copic I have is BG 39, Duck Blue and I guess the next colors I’d like to get are BG09 & BG13.
    Thanks for the chance to win this book!

  253. Your card is absolutely beautiful.I love the trio of R81, R83, and R85. Would love to win this wonderful book. Thanks for the chance.

  258. I love g21, yg63,67

  259. I am a pastel girl-I like the pinks & lavenders.

  260. Hmmmmm … my favorite Copic color combo is … and I did sweat bullets over this … R81, R85 and either R83 or R89 depending on how much color I really need. For me, you can never have too much color … eye shadow maybe … but not on paper! Copics are the perfect blend of color and congrats on your card design. 🙂

  261. I don’t have a favorite color combo since I don’t own any Copics yet. However, I know enough to realize that I need this book to learn the proper techniques.

  262. I love pinks and reds but my favorite color combo is R81, R83 & R85. Will have to buy this book if I don’t win!

  263. I love the pinks and the berry colors the best and of course you need the greens to go with that. Your card is super!!

  264. I agree with Joyce, R81,R83 andR85. They work especially well with flowers.

  265. I am very new to copics – a book like this would be a big help to me – I am only working on faces/skin right now and using E0000, E00, E21

  266. My favorite color combo is R22, R24, R29.

  267. No particular combo, I just reach for what ‘looks’ good…that’s why I need that book! Your coloring is amazing!

  268. i am just beginning my journey with copic markers, but i do enjoy using them to color images on the cards and projects i make for family and friends. i enjoy using the ripe avocardo trio from paper trey ink YG93, YG95, and YG97. love your work, beate and i appreciate a chance to win this great resource.

  269. I don’t own any Copics yet, but I’d first select some colors that would make a beautiful Cardinal (bird). Those colors would no doubt work very well for any number of flower blossoms, too.

  270. I am fairly new to copics, but one of my favorite combos is B91, B95, B97.

  271. I love the reds and blues – R59 and B97 being 2 of my favorites. Your shading is so well done!

  272. Oh this is a beautiful card – her hair is gorgeous! I love R20, R22, R24 for flowers. Thanks for the chance to win.

  273. That is what I love about Copics…the color combos seem endless. I love coloring embellishments to add to my cards and scrapbook pages. It is awesome to take a plain white embellie and color it to totally match whatever I want. LOVE IT!!!!

  274. I love the E70s with the BG series.

  275. I have recently signed up for a Copic class at CKC Valley Forge…I can’t wait to give it a try, I can only wish to color so beautifully as this. I’m sure to have a favorite color combo really soon! Thanks for the opportunity to win Copics!

  276. Absolute stunning. Can’t quit looking at all the wonderful details and coloring!

  277. Beautiful work! Newbie to coloring and don’t even own any Copics yet. . .but love summery colors.

  278. Your card is very magical! I like bright,cheery colors for the most part so I guess a favorite color combo of mine would have to be YR04, YR07, and YR09. Thanks for the chance to win!

  279. Pick just one color combo? You can’t be serious? There are just so many different combos to try and I keep buying more markers so the number of combinations just keeps growing. Maybe once I have them all I’ll be able to pick just one! :>)

  280. WOW! Gorgeous card – your coloring is amazing! I’m pretty new to Copics and so far my favorite combo is R81, R83, and R85. Thank you for the chance to win!

  281. Hmm – I don’t know what my favorite Copic color combo is because I haven’t used Copic yet – I would love too. I like all colors so it would be hard to decide! Not even sure which ones to buy first 🙂

  282. Hmmm favorite color combos . . . How to choose

    I am not the least surprised that you are one of the artists in this book! I have followed you and your wonderful tutorials trough SCS for some time now. Your card is simply stunning! Your coloring ROCKS! I would so love to add this wonderful book to my Annie’s Attic collection. I mainly water color because I just don’t feel my Copic coloring is up to par. I NEED this book to help me sharpen my skills. Why not learn from the best right? 🙂

  317. I am just absolutely amazed how beautifully you colour and shade! I dont have that many copics so it is difficult to choose a combo. I am still learning how to use my copics, so every day is a new experience using them, so learning from the experts gives me so much more insight into the wonderful copic world.
