  1. I can’t wait to buy this book. Hopefully I wont have to! My favorite way to color is usually my Stampin Up markers but depending on the project, I also love colored pencils. I bought a couple copics, flesh and rosie cheek color, that I’m still experimenting with. Thank you for the giveaway.

  2. You have totally enabled me in the purchase of many ways to add color to my pages and my cards (which I appreciate!). I love to use Copics, watercolors, inks, and colored pencils on my layouts, but probably my favorite is ink. I love to use masks I make to add interest to my backgrounds, and blending inks for my titles. They’re a lot of fun!


  3. Since I do not have copic markers I like to use oil pastels and distress ink. I use the little nibs in the distress ink and then it is just like coloring with a pencil. I usually lay the nib on a baby wipe to get it a little damp before I put it in the ink. I holds more ink that way.

  4. This is all brand new to me. I barely started using stamps on some of my scrapbook stuff so right now to add color I just use different colored ink pads. And I do like adding stickles to make things sparkly. Does this count? 🙂 Thanks for your informative how to videos.

  5. Hi Jennifer, My favorite color are summer colors and I love to color with copics but aquarell is also a favorite of mine. Thanks so much for the chance to win! Greetings from the Netherlands. Margriet van Gent

  6. Distress inks and glimmer mist all the way baby! Love them! I can’t make the jump into copics – it would eat up my scrap budget! TFS!

  7. I’d like my favorite way to color to be with Copic Sketch (yes, I loved learning to spray), but alas, I don’t have an Copic’s and it isn’t in the too near budget. So, my favorite way to color is often chalks. When I can get away with it and the soft colors will work, I love using chalk.

  8. I generally use colored pencils with maybe a bit of intense color with ultra fine Sharpies – and starting to play with chalk too. Thanks so much for such a fabulous giveaway!!

  9. Coloring is tough for me. Pencils work the best…more control, can work slower, a bit forgiving, … Thanks for the chance to win!

  10. I would love to distress inks and color with copic colors.
    I would love to see more techniques in this book and hope to get one.
    Thanks for the chance! Jen!

  11. I love using Tim Holtz Distress inks (learned about that through your thinking inking class at 2Peas) and Copic Markers!!!

  12. I like to use ink and prismacolor pencils (with Gamsol, of course!). Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  13. I love using colored pencils! I haven’t gotten into Copics or distress inks but I’ve been eyeing them!

  14. I love coloring with Copic markers. Lately I have been stamping on acetate and then glittering. I love the effects with butterflies, dragonflies, etc.

  15. I’ll have to pick up a copy. Copics are one of my favourite ways to colour and I keep eyeing that air compressor and drooling.

  16. Right now my favorite way of coloring is with the SU watyercolor crayons. Love them!! Tx for all the great ideas!

    and have been using them to make
    cards lately. Am having so much fun!
    Thanks! Diane H.

  18. You had me at coloring, ha. I believe in equal coloring. I use them all. colored pencils to copics, I guess if you made me pick it would be water colored crayons. They are a femine look. Thanks JillB.

  19. My new love is copic markers with the air brush. With a little practice you can make pretty much anything you want. It’s soooo easy to change colors, layer colors, and alter unlimited objects.

  20. This may sound silly, but my favorite way to color is using Crayola Twistable Crayons or my SU markers!

  21. I like to use inks. I have never tryed the copics but latly I have been reading a lot about them and think I should try this too.

  22. Hi Jennifer, I just picked up this issue at my local Michaels. What an amazing issue!!! Of course, I loved your contribution, because I think everything you do is great. But I must say that I really enjoyed all the tips! Thank you for pointing me in that direction, I don’t think I would have picked up a copy without your recommendation. My favorite way to colour is with alcohol inks – thank you for including them.

  23. I love to use watercolor crayons & distress inks. Would love to try Copics! Thanks for the chance to win.

  25. I’m only new to copics but I love them! I also love to use my distress inks as colour on flowers/butterflies etc. I love the way they blend together.

    thanks for the chance to win!!

  26. I tend to go in phases with colouring. My current favourite way is colouring with faerie mysts and radiant pearls.

  27. My Favorite way to color is Copics, of course. I resisted forever but now I am hooked. I also love using a blender pen with shimmery chalks… thanks for the chance to win!

  28. i don’t know about favorite but how about latest? I told myself that I wasn’t going to join the copic bandwagon but when my LSS had a big sale, I went kinda nuts so I have just been starting to experiment with copics and coloring!

  29. I got so excited to see an article on Copic markers and the air compressor, I just bought mine. Now I guess I have to get that issue. I love using my Copics and excited about this new toy.
