  1. Hello Jennifer, I am an avid follower of your blog and because I live in the UK I almost never enetr for your giveaways, as I think it 1) probably won’t be me anyway that wins and 2) in case I miraculously did, it wouldn’t arrive due to posting issues or 3) you won’t send abroad for some things. But this looks sooo cool! I would love to have a copy of this book and I am not sure I could get my hands on one over here. I am a colouring junkie, I love all sorts of techniques, so choosing a favourite is almost impossible. Having said that, Distress inks and Copics are my most used mediums and I love blending my Copics with the use of an acrylic block for subtle colour blending, so I stick with that for today! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Many thanks for the generous giveaway and I will keep my fingers firmly crossed now!!!
    Love, Alexandra

  2. What a great book for someone to receive. Thanks for the opportunity. I am new at this and have eagerly tried anything anyone has shown me in coloring. When I started scrapbooking a couple years ago, I used the markers that matched my ink pads and then moved up to the pencils/crayons they had. Now I am trying out copic markers. I like them all and use the medium I think will give the effect I am looking for …. and how much time I have to do the project.

  3. I love color pencils. I find I have more control with them. Although I am trying to practice my Copic skills, to find more control with the application of color. It is still difficult not to put too much pressure or color on the page with them.

  4. Copics are my favorite. I hope someday to get a class so I can learn to color as well as you do. I’m still new with Copics but I love them.

  5. Awesoem! I will have to look for this magazine. My favorite way to color is with an aquabrush and regular stamping ink. I am still learning though.

  6. Wowzers! It’s early and already 308 comments. You certainly have a great group of followers. I have a bunch of sharpies. I am pretty much the amature when it comes to coloring. The book looks great and your article looks fascinating. Maybe will go by the bookstore and take a look. wonder if my 40% coupon will work at Joann’s. Hummmm!

  7. That’s a hard one. If I had copics, they would probably be my favorite way to color my projects. So I guess my favorite is using inkpads or watercoloring. Thank you for the chance to win.

  8. I like to use my ink pads to color chipboard. I’m using distress inks a lot, too. Just bought some Copics and getting the hang of those! They’re addicting!

    Thanks for the chance to win. Can’t wait to see your article in the issue!


  9. My favorite coloring technique is definitely using Copics! The smoothness and blending ability you get from these markers makes images look really great.

  10. Can’t wait to read your article! I use markers and watercolors; I took a class on using Copic Markers, and loved their look, but can’t afford them yet! If I had them, though, I think they’d be my favorites.

  11. I love using an aqua painter picking up ink refill dropped on a plastic lid. Also use watercolor crayons. Have pencils but don’t seem to use those much. Also like to spritz on color with the Smooch Spritz. Would love to win the book. Would also like to try copics, but don’t won’t to invest the money in them right now.

  12. Hey Jen! Sorry I don’t get on here too often…I would like to visit blogs more often but just don’t get the time. ๐Ÿ™ I couldn’t pass the chance to win this amazing book! I love to color with my PrismaColor colored pencils. I have just started coloring with Copics, but haven’t really invested much time learning the ropes with them. There is something about my colored pencils & the way I can blend the colors together & leave highlights where I want highlights. Thanks for the great giveaway! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. My favorite way to color is to use water-based markers and a blending pen. I have Copics, many of them, but they just don’t like me. Maybe your article will help!

  14. I like different coloring techniques. Colored Pencils and Gamsol is one of my favs now, but I haven’t tried copic markers yet. I like spray’s, too.

  15. My favorite way to color is Prisma colored pencils , Gamsol, and the nibs for a dove blender jammed into an ink pen that has the inners taken out. My LSS sells them and they are marvelous.

  16. I just recently started trying out copics. Would love to learn more. But, my favorite way to color right now is with Shimmerz paints. ( They are the best!!

  17. I’m not drinking the copic kool-aid yet and I really don’t want get into them due to the expense, but I LOOOOOVE to color with distress inks. pat the pad onto my craft sheet…spritz with water and/or mix in some glimmer mist/perfect pearls and get out the paintbrush!

  18. I like to push the lids of my ink pads down onto the pad which leaves ink on the inside of the lid (or dab the pad onto an acrylic block or craft mat) and then use a dove blender pen to pick up the ink and use like a marker to color design. It’s also a great way to match inks of stamped images.

  19. I love using chalks with my water brush. I can more easily layer the color on images and can better control the shading.

  20. I love my chalks… and water color pencils for color. I don’t own any COPICS yet… but hope to try those out soon.

  21. Fun article I bet! My favorite way to color is anything QUICK! I use colored pencils, markers, inks, stickles…you name it! ๐Ÿ™‚ Always varies–keeps it exciting! ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. I love to paint with Twinkling H2O’s. I also have some Copics that I would love to learn more how to techniques on.

  23. I love to color! ๐Ÿ™‚ I find it fun to use chalks, pencils, watercolor crayons…you name it. ๐Ÿ™‚ My latest craze though is using Copics. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of the CK special issue.

  24. i am still exploring various ways to color. just got my first pair of copics last month. but i do have lots of prismacolor pencils and have the spica pens and really like both of them. nothing like a little spica glitter to glam things up.

  25. I love paper piecing–it takes forever…but I love it. I also use Sakura gelly pens. I love those too! And distress inks….and water color pencils…just love it all:) THANKS for the chance to win!

  26. My favorite way has been to use alcohol inks with water pens filled with blender solution, but after reading your blog, I had to try the copic markers. Right now I only have 8 but I LOVE them.

  27. Since I cannot afford Copics at this time, my favorite way is with stamp pads, and also have some re-inkers. Looks like a very good issue.

  28. My favorite coloring is copics right now, but I still love using my colored pencils and Gamsol. The pencils travel in a much smaller container when I go out.
