Prize Drawing and Gift Card Set

Hey everyone, let's start today with a little prize drawing. If you read down two posts, you'll see that Marianne with Copic is celebrating her 1 year blog anniversary this week. Today's my turn at the give away and I'm offering up a set of Copic multiliner markers, pictured below. I will run the drawing through Sunday 8:00pm. You can enter the drawing by posting to this blog post, just leave me a general comment or better yet, let me know what you'd like to see done with Copics. I'll pick a winner on Sunday evening. Be sure to leave your name and email address in your comment. Anonymous posts will not be accepted. Thanks for playing along.

Multiliner SP 4pc. set, black, assorted sizes Now for today's post, I have some wonderful cards to show you that are for my mom's birthday coming up. I know she'll love these K & Company papers below, so they were the starting point for my color selection.
I'm working with Karen Lockhart's new Rose of Sharon image. Karen does the best flowers!! I'm going to show you my coloring progress as I go along. I started with the leaves and used two tones of green markers. The left image shows the YG93 that I went over twice to get some deeper shades of color. The right image shows the finished leaves using YG95.
Below are some flowers that I did in blue tones. I had to google some photos of Rose of Sharon flowers because I wasn't sure of the colors. They come in a variety of colors from blues to pinks and whites with beautiful pink centers. The flowers themselves resemble a hibiscus flower. The image on the left shows my first layer of BG10. The photo on the right shows the flowers after using the BG72 and BG75 markers. I like to leave some white or almost white areas in my coloring. Those little specks of white are good....my high school art teacher always told me that.
And below are the colored baskets, the left side showing E31 and the right image showing some deeper tones that I achieved using E55.
The photo below shows some shadowing that I added using W1 and W3 and the blender marker (0). The left image also shows an outline I did around the flowers using a YR31 yellow marker. That yellow really helps the flowers to pop off the page.
I achieved the same look using shades of pink in RV42, R85 and RV19.
And here's my finished cards below. I used a Spellbinder's Oval Nestabilities Die to cut out the images. Sentiments, ribbons and buttons for all cards are from Papertrey Ink.
And here's my blue colored cards.
And check out the glitter atyou Spica pens from Copic. They are SO shimmery and pretty.
Here's my little assortment with envelopes, all ready to be packaged up for my mom. I like to keep the sentiments generic in nature so that she can use the cards for any occasion.
And since my mom has a hard time using any of my *too pretty to be used* gifts, I thought that Lauren's Desktop Organizer Timeless Template would be perfect. It's open so that cards can be slipped in and out....she can keep the box pretty but still use the cards. I love this template, it's one of my faves. You just print them off...cut on the solid lines.....score on the dotted lines....and assemble. And this box is sturdy so it will hold up well. Easy peasy for a girl like me who never likes to measure or read directions .

I'm hoping to stamp up a few more cards for my mom so she'll have a few refills on hand. We'll see how long this gift sits before she uses it. Gotta love our moms.

Hi Mish, Beautiful cards. I would love to know which copics are your favourites and which colours you think are the best to start off with. I am thinking I should buy some but don't know where to start.

Sam said...

Wow, what a great giveaway! I'm just getting to grips with my first set of Copic sketch markers (not very good at using them yet!), so the Multiliners would be a fantastic addition. I'd love to see some Copic artwork of cats as that's what I'm trying to learn.

Janet said...

I love your cards and would love to win the multiliner set. I "had" one multiliner and somehow the tip got bent. I've been wanting to buy more, but haven't gotten around to it. Winning a set would be great! Thank you!

Janine said...

Fabulous giveaway!! Thanks for the chance... Your gift card set is fabulous too. I love that template from Lauren... I use it all the time.

Chris said...

Wow what a wonderful giveaway. I love my Copic markers although I am not ways near as good with them as you are. I love the cards that you create. Always so beautiful

Karen said...

I also love Karen's flowers (and all the rest of her stamps) you always do the best things with them. Beautiful desk set. Your mother will love these and I bet she won't use them for a few months. As I am sure you know, mothers can't bear to part with anything their children make for them (no matter how old they are). Have a great weekend.

KarenR said...

I always love your cards and especially those that use Karen Lockhart's stamps. I am just learning to use Copics so any and all information is great for me.

Melody (lacyquilter) said...

Your cards are gorgeous. Wish I knew how to color.

Jannette said...

I'm a long ways from owing all the copic markers but what I do have I use all the time. Using that blending pen is what gives me some trouble. I'd love to win a set of multiliners to go with the rest of my little set.

Love your cards! I have been wanting to get the Multiliners to compliment the Copics I had bought for school and now they are for crafting! NAy information on how to color with Copics is what I am always looking for. It is nice to see the step-by -step type of pics.

Cindy H. said...

These cards are beautiful!! I can see why your mom hesitates to use them. They'd have to be for someone very special!

Your cards are beautiful! Thank you for sharing your talent with us!

Patricia said...

Hi Mish! I love, love, love your blog. I'm still such a newbie concerning Copics. They fascinate and terrify me at the same time. You do such a wonderful job of explaining everything, whatever you care to share about Copics is great with me!

melanie said...

Beautiful cards...awesome giveaway! I just bought my fist 52 copics and am taking classes. They are awesome, but I will have to practice practice practice to be as good as you with them!

Sandy said...

Your cards and projects are so fun to see. Thanks for sharing all that you do with us. I just love seeing how you color with the Copics. It sure helps that PTI is selling the Copics to match their colors.

huntla1 said...

Love my Copics. I have had them for a while and they all sit on my workspace so they are my go to coloring medium. I would like to see the refills come in sets. Maybe the sets don't have to be as large as the pen sets. I think it would make buying the refills easier.

dolcreations said...

I forgot to leave a comment regarding the copic contest you are having! What would I like to see with Copics..the sky is the limit for me..what ever they have to offer..I would eat it up!!!LOL
I just started with a collection of maybe 20 markers and I LOVE them. It took me a while, but once I figured them out. There is no stopping me now. And with blogs like yours to inspire...WOW!

Just gotta remember you can put a smile on someone elses face too when they receive them! LOL

Wow..Copics, I don't own any so I'm always interested in seeing how you use them. I've never seen this particular set at all.

Thanks for the chance!

TheQueenMom said...

What a beautiful set of cards for your Mom. Great idea putting it in something she can keep and you can refill!
I'd love to check out the Multi-Liners, but they keep getting bumped down on my must-have list...

Lorie said...

Oh, my goodness..this post is packed full of wonderful information...thank you! I appreciate seeing step by step directions on how to blend the colors together.

Ann said...

StampinginKansas said...

Great cards! I love Lockhart stamps. What a great giveaway. I don't have copics and was wondering what colors you would suggest to start with.

Whimsey said...

Man, I'm not receiving my feedblitz updates and just feel lost! :D

What a great giveaway; thanks for the chance to win. My FAVORITE thing to see with Copics is coloring and shading; I can never learn enough.

Thanks for the great inspiration Michelle!

Crafty Num Nums said...

I love your cards!!! I soooooo wish i could use copics like that. I havebeen wanting the multiliners for awhile, just have not justified them yet since I am still learning the Copic. This would be a perfect time to add them :)

Sharon said...

Mishie, those are beautiful. I get serious Copic Envy everytime I visit your blog (because at this point I don't own any! Sob!) A suggestion for a basic starter set would be handy advice! sworley61@att.net

Elizabeth Bracco said...

Love the cards. I am such a fan. You always make it look so effortless. I bought a set of multiliners for my teenage son for Christmas and he is just starting to use my copics to color. I think using quality tools makes a big difference in the finished artwork.

Diana said...

I love the card set you made! Thank you so much for posting a tutorial; I know it's a lot of work, but it really helps to see the coloring process.

I'd like to see how to color medium-sized areas with Copics, because I'm having such a hard time with getting a smooth, blended look.

Thanks for the chance to win some multiliners!

Karolyn Loncon said...

I'll bet your mom will love your card set - absolutely gorgeous. I'd love to see how YOU use the Multiliners . . . I received one in a Copic Certification class package, and like it complete lines that got missed when stamping. How do you use them? I'd love to add more Multiliners to my Copic bucket . . . thanks for the chance to win!

Denise ~ Paper Ponderings said...

Such a beautiful card set. Wowzers! I always want to know which markers you'd choose if you were just barely beginning. I think I have four markers to my name Ü

Now for the contest. Since today is my birthday, I think I should win the markers! :)

Cyndi said...

Awesome a chance to win something. I just purchased a few copic markers from Hobby Lobby just the other day, they are all at 30% off. I've been practicing every day but don't have the technic done. I'll have to poke around on your web page to see if you have tutorials. What are Multiliners?

Wow! What a great post! I don't use copics myself, but I always love reading your coloring process. I even occasionally use some of your coloring steps with my Prismacolor pencils. :) The theory is the same, just the medium changes.

nina said...

Gorgeous colouring as usual. I can't get enough of 'how to colour' posts so I'd love to see more of that. I just get my shading and highlights messed up all the time.

Con said...

I would like to learn anything I can regarding Copics...I haven't used them yet. And to win your blog candy would allow me to play a little ;) Your cards are great...I hope someday to be able to do cards just like you and your friends.
Thanks, Con.

Oh how I love the beautiful K and Company papers - very delicate. I haven't tried the Copics yet, but I really like what you do with the airbrush look in the Nestabilities.

Spicey Cat Chick said...

Wahoo!! I don't own any of the multi-liners and would LOVE the chance to win! I'm getting fairly comfortable using copics to color stamped images but would like to see other projects to use them for. I know they'll work to color lots more than just paper, but am too chicken to try.

Barbara M said...

Great gift for your Mom. She just might use those cards because they are so beatiful handmade by her daughter! Bragging rights here:) Copics are great I have been just been getting some as needed. I want to get a set to increase the color range .. which one?? This like furniture you know you can buy but has to right one because your going to have it for a very long time.

inkpalz said...

so, if I were on a tight budget, what are the "must have" colors that I should invest in?

Great cards. Thanks for the chance to win.

Would like to have a list of what you consider your "must have" Copic markers.

Sacha said...

I am really new to copics but I like to see pictures like you showed today where an image is partially colored and then finished so I can see how you blend the colors together. I would also like to understand shading better.

Leslie Knox said...

I love reading your blog for my daily dose of inspiration and I was so happy to learn of the Copic give away today!
Unfortunately my craft budget has been slashed to 0 at the moment and I do not own any Copics yet. But would love to see different blending techniques.
Have a great weekend and thanks for the chance to win!

yvette said...

I would like to see how you pick colors for flowers or objects that bledn together well. I never know what greens make a leaf have depth or the shades of blue for a pair of blue jeans

Alyssa said...

Gorgeous cards! Thanks for the tutorial - every little bit I can get helps! I would love to see what colors to use for ethnic skin tones. My step-daughter is 1/2 black and has a gorgeous skin tone that I don't know how to duplicate. Also, some tips on how to choose blending colors. I never would have put the reds that you used together. How do you do that?

Patti Gingrich said...

Beautiful coloring! I'm always thankful for your inspiration Michelle and appreciate the chance at your giveaway.

JeanFB said...

Beautiful job, Mish. I just LOVE it when you post your step-by-step process with your Copics. I got a small set a few months ago and find myself going back through your blog to get pointers. Thanks so much for a chance to win a set (I don't know what I'd like to see next, since I haven't yet seen everything there already is :)!)

I just love the work you do and read your blog almost every day. As of yet, I don't own any copics so this would be a great win... Thanks for all your inspirarion

Dishtowel Dame said...

What a wonderful set of pens! I would love to own those. I think they would be great for touching up little areas that don't stamp perfectly. Or they would be great for adding some little details by sketching them in. I love your blog (it's the best!) and I love Marianne's blog. I think both of you should print your blogs (blurb.com) and sell them!! I would use your blogbook for inspiration and would use Marianne's as a great reference tool for using Copics!!!

Absolutly beautiful cards! I love the Lockhart flowers too. Thanks fo much for the detailed Copic coloring tutorial. I'm just getting started with Copics and love to see the how to process. I also would love to see animal coloring and shading. I mostly got the Copic for animals and florals. Thanks for a chance to win.

Christina said...

I want to learn more about Copics in general. When you color using a dark marker, then change to the lighter ones, does it stain the lighter one's tip?

Beautiful gifts!!! I give sets of cards to the women in my family, but they're usually a random assortment...after seeing your coordinated set, I'm thinking I need to change things up. As far as Copics are concerned...just keep showing me your amazing work!

Your coloring is amazing! I would never have thought of outlining in yellow. It does make them pop!

I would like to see more of the detail in shading larger images and things like animals. I have such a hard time with it.

Kristina said...

I love the cards...I have never tried copic markers but I would sure love to!

Val said...

Beautiful cards! I love how you have coloured the flowers. I would love to know how you choose which Copic colours to use to colour flowers! Thanks for a chance to win the Multiliners! I'm new to Copics and would appreciate any information as to how to use them effectively.

Anita Kurtz said...

Great coloring tips! Thanks for the chance to win :)

Mrs.Lumpy said...

Beautiful creations!!! They are so many things I am looking forward to seeing done with Copics, but I am really looking forward to seeing the air brushing. I am going to the the ceritfication classes with Sally Lynn in Smithville on Sunday...I am sooo excited!!!

I can't say enough but how much I love your blog! I especially like when you show us step-by-step, like you did today, how you color your images wth Copics. For me, that really helps to see how to blend the colors. I especially need help with the "base" you use to ground the images. For me, coloring anything that doesn't have lines around it is as a guide is difficult.

Thanks for the chance to win. Love the cards you made today. I love copics although I am still learning how to do better with them!

Stampin_melissa said...

I love seeing how you use copic markers.... last month I purchased my first ones!! I have 6 colours and love to see lessons on how to use them!! :-) How wonderful it would be to add to my collection!

Karen T said...

I'd love to get a chance to try the Copics. They're not in my budget right now. Thanks for the chance. I love all the cards.

Barbara said...

Beautiful work Mish. I look forward to coming to your blog.... artwork, a bit of family and friends etc.
What are multiliners... is this something new? enjoy the weekend

Mimi said...

I'm in love with your cards from the paper, the Copic colors to the stamp. You did a beautiful job chosing and blending the colors. I would love to add the multiliners to my Copic collection. It's quite addicting.

Valerie said...

Wow! I would love to win these Copic liners as they would come in handy when I draw little animals like bunnies in baskets, squirrels in trees etc. Thank you for this opportunity!

MaGoooo said...

I LOVE what you do with Copics!

I'd like that know what your favorite color combos are.

Thanks for sharing your work with us!

Jan Marcham said...

I can't tell you how much I love your creations! Yours is the first blog I look at every morning. I don't have much experience with Copic markers yet so anything you can show us would be most appreciative. I'd love to learn about shading. Keep those beautiful ideas coming!

Becky P. said...

Wow! As usual you have outdone yourself. You make using Copics look so easy, but I am still too intimidated to try them. Or maybe I just don't quite have the patience to try them. My coloring skills are still at a 6 year old level. LOL! I continue to learn so much from you, thank you for a daily dose of inspiration.

JKB said...

Gee, copics are new to me, so any tutorials would be great!

vampyrelucia said...

I love the coloring on the flower stamp.
I am also putting in for the multiliner set.

Hi, I really like your cards today. So simple but so beautiful. I would love to win the markers. I only have one liner pen and it's almost dry. I use it for everything!

At the moment i only own two multiliners. It sure would be great to win this set. Thanks, Nellie.

tinkerfeet said...

I love your blog. I do water colors, but I think I am going to try copics.

Jen said...

Thanks for the chance at yet another great prize!

I'd like to see more Copics used on scrapbook LOs. I've spent so much money on them, I'd love to use them on more than just a few cards a month!

scubasubie said...

Wow I really like your coloring. I'm learning how to use copics and your technique is awesome!

Pat said...

I really appreciate all of you designers enabling us poor addicted followers! :) Thank you for sharing your talents and gifts with us--the less fortunate!

I am new to copic markers and don't know which ones I should buy first. I would like to see more on shading and how to do this. I would love to win this set

Amy said...

Well I'd enjoy seeing how you'd color on the stamps. I read on someone's blog you can use the copic's on your stamp just use staz-on right away on them and your stamp should be good. Should I believe them?

Kristina said...

Thank you so much for your wonderfull blog (and great treat).

One of my reasons to follow your work, is because you display which colurs you have beeb using for what. The last post where you show in which order you use the colurs are just great... More of that please ;-)

Your shadows are perfect every time... I'd love to see you do a "how-to" for us new-bees...

Any way thanks aging

Hi Mish! I just love all of your gorgeous cards. Thank you so much for sharing your inspiration and talent with us! I have never tried Copic markers before, but since reading all about them on your blog - I am dying to give them a try! Thanks so much!

Ann said...

Hi Mish,
I look at your blog post daily. Wonderful!
Your knowledge, talent, and spunky spirit keep me spellbound for hours.
Using the copic markers, I would like to see anything about ranch life in Texas because I'll be doing a family heritage album. Included will be, cowboys, animals: cattle, horses, pigs, chickens, turkeys, bobcats, jack rabbits, kangaroo rats, snakes (water moccasins, rattlesnakes, coral, and bull snakes), horned toads, mocking birds, owls, quail,and dove. Also, tumble weeds, windmills, fence posts with barbed wire, wild flowers and the creek. Oh yes, I will put people in it too.
Thank you for all you do to share with your followers.

Peggy said...

Thank you for the nice opportunity to win! I have just recently gotten into Copics and I am thoroughly hooked. I keep looking at things around my house to yard sale to get more Copics!

Patti Senter aka NW Lady said...

This is the first time visiting your blog and I get a chance at Copic Multiliners as well, what a deal. I love how you did the two photos for each step side by side, it so helps understand the process. It would be cool if you added a few step by step videos of some of your projects. I know your Mom will love her cards, you'll have to post how long it takes her to use them, lol.

FibreJunky said...

Oh wow. I have been dying to get those multiliners. I have one, but you know one is never enough!! I would love to see anything done with the airbrushing system.
Absolutely love those cards and the holder you've made.

CraftyViolet said...

I only have a few copics - no one in my city sells them so I have to wait til I get to Michigan...but I do love the few I have. Would love to have some of the glittery ones too.

Cindy said...

Love the cards, they are so pretty I would find it hard to use them. I love my Copics, thanks for the giveaway!

Melissa said...

You are so talented using the Copics! I love your little desk set for your mom! Just beautiful!!

I love my copics and while I'm no expert at using them, find that they work so much better for me than any other markers I've owned. I keep practicing and improving thanks to your blog and others.
