Copic Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to a very special blog hop!  

I am excited to announce my participation and publication in the latest book in the series

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 colouring 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 favourite project from the book - and a chance to WIN your own autographed copy! 


Here is my card that appears in the book
showcasing no-lines stamping and incorporating both Copic and coloured pencils

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 30th June UK time

I will then announce the lucky winner here on my blog in July

Can't wait for your copy? 
Copic Coloring Guide Level 4: Fine Details is now available at many USA stamping and scrapbooking stores. Visit your local store today and ask about availability.  It is also sold through the Annie’s catalog, accessible online at Annie's.

Unfortunately it will take a smidgy longer for my fellow Brits to get a copy
so why not leave a comment for your chance to win one of the first to hit our shores!!

Now it's time to hop on over to  Michele's blog

Carol said...

Very cute 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.

Janine said...

Wow Jane, your work in print! Congratulations and very well deserved. Your colouring is fantastic, beautiful no lines colouring.
I've not plucked up the courage to try this technique yet, but have bought memento desert sand in readiness :)
Hugs, Janine xx

I absolutely love your card. I'm amazed at the no lines technique, but have yet to try it in my own coloring. My favorite part is how you've incorporated the non-traditional fall colors (teal and purple) from the paper in her clothes to make it all coordinate.
