Copic Coloring Guide, Level 2: Nature!

Pin It



Good morning and welcome to a very special blog hop!  I am excited to announce my participation and publication in the new Copic Coloring Guide, Level 2: Nature!

Authors Colleen Schaan and Marianne Walker have partnered up again with the team at Annie’s Attic 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 next step in the Coloring Guide series, offering information and educational material for crafters of all skill levels.

From the introductory suggestions for creating a Copic journal and tips for working with digital images, to explanations of advanced blending techniques and detailed tutorials for coloring specific objects, the book presents useful information in an easy-to-follow format. 

A bonus CD comes with the book that 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 favorite project from the book - and a chance to WIN your own autographed copy! 

I'm still pinching myself, trying to believe that I actually have a project in this publication!  This card below featuring the "Take Off" stamp set from The Cat's Pajamas is my contribution!  This was truly one of the funnest cards I've ever made, and I'm so proud to have it included in this awesome book, alongside some truly awesome Copic artists!



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 on Friday, March 9th at 11:59 p.m. and I'll announce the winner on Saturday.  Winners will be announced on the individual designer's blog.  

Tammy Hershberger  (woohoo... that's ME!)

Can't wait for your copy? 
Copic Coloring Guide Level 2: Nature is now available at many stamping and scrapbooking stores. Visit your local store today and ask about availability.  It is also sold through the Annie’s Attic catalog, accessible online at AnniesAttic.com

Thanks for sharing in this excitement with me today, and good luck!

Hi Tammy, Your card is adorable and beautifully coloured. I love how you picked a map as a background, it ties the title together with everything else. I have been colouring now for a little over one year and still haven’t tackled landscapes due to a lack in confidence.
