1st order I thought I would just get the SU color matches that I use the most.
2nd order I needed all of the rest of the SU matches and In Colors.
3rd order I needed gray and earths for people & animals.
4th ordered I realized I needed more light colors.

Super addictive, but I have a great assortment now and after getting Memento ink and Gina K paper have been coloring up a storm. I have a long way to go in the coloring department!
Just one custom set of 72 from Period Style but I have a running wish list and I had a few already

As of February 26th, I had 207 of them (boughten over a whole year). Then on the 27th I ordered the rest of the colors I needed - minus the grays and florescent ones. So now I have a total of 271. Only 51 markers more to go!

Ok...thought I would share this with you all...I was not going to buy copics ever when I first saw the price...but then I saw this Sarah Kay image on a blog...colored so stinkin' cute...and I emailed about the colors used...and placed my first order back in October I think...maybe September.

Anyway, a whole lotta markers later I FINALLY ordered myself that image I saw that hooked me on them in the first place.

So...here is my very own *First Kiss* all colored in my own style...

Thanks for letting me share!!

Wow, that looks so great! You did an awesome job with your coloring. I just ordered "A Kiss For Chloe." I just love the charming look of these cute little country kids. Your card is perfect.

Beautiful card, and I love that image too. That, and the "Daisy" one may get me to fork over the Pounds for shipping

Oh, that is sooooo cute!!! You did a fantastic job coloring it!!

Hopefully tomorrow I'll get some good "tips" how to blend better that I currently do. I am going to the Copics Certification tomorrow in Camp Hill. I was soooo excited when I saw they were having on so close to me (as in less than 2 miles from my house!!!!). Needless to say, I registered for this right away!!

I'm jealous, closest to me are Buffalo (3 1/2 hrs) Albany (2 1/2 hrs) and NH is even further! It's a hobby for me, no design team or anything, so the $$ could be used for more markers.

I'm pretty much a hobby person also, but the owner of my LSS wants me to start teaching with the copics. So, I figure I'll get the $$ back eventually.

I was the one that showed the copics to the owner and she is starting to carry them now. May be a bad thing for my wallet!!! LOL!!

OMGosh! This is so awesome!!!!!

What DP is that????
I'm keeping a scrapbook of my mom's chocolate lab (I gave him to her as an early retirement (and you can't change your mind because the dog needs you-LOL!) gift. I have been collecting and collecting all the canine DP I can find, but I don't think I have this!

Your coloring is just phenomenal!

our last independant LSS just closed, I used to teach at 2 different ones, had a great deal with first one, but she's been out of business for 5 years, then another real close to me went under, and I taught at this last one for a time, but she was more scrapbooking and never got a huge stamping inventory. I'll miss her papers tho. We have Mike's, ACM and Joann's but I'm not interested in working with them :^( I'd like your set up!

This one has been around for a long time. Hopefully they don't go under. I've been helping them get "up to date" items though. They now carry nesties - I show them the nesties last fall and they fell in love with them. They are so pleased since they can't keep them in stock now!!! They places their first copics order a few weeks ago and have people asking when they are going to be available - so hopefully they sell good for them also.

I knew he was going to be cute to color when I ordered him last week! That is just too cute a card and coloring! I just keep hoping the rush is over at High Hopes and that I will get my order ASAP but with their images are so cute I'm certain I'm not the only one.

One question, when you registered on the website, did you get any response right away? I've registered for one in Ohio and have not heard anything back (but it's not technically open to the public either)...

That is so "dog"gone cute! You did a great job with the coloring. I only hope that I can learn how to do that now that I have all these Copics.

That's fabulous that you're going to a certification class. I'd love to do that, and wish they'd set one up for down here in Texas. I'd sign up in a heartbeat.

Give Cris a call. If you are not an owner, designer, etc., call to make sure she has you on the waiting list for when it opens.

They usually open up for anyone 2-3 weeks before the class. I called and ask and she put me on the waiting list for when it opened up. 2 weeks before the class it hadn't been marked as full or opened, so I called her to ask.

Hopefully you get into it. I'm anxious to go to it tomorrow!!

Hopefully tomorrow I'll get some good "tips" how to blend better that I currently do. I am going to the Copics Certification tomorrow in Camp Hill. I was soooo excited when I saw they were having on so close to me (as in less than 2 miles from my house!!!!). Needless to say, I registered for this right away!!

Hi Barb:

I'm driving up from VA to attend tomorrow. I am so excited that I won't be able to sleep for fear of 'oversleeping' my alarm! I am thrilled that I was able to get into the class. I'd love to teach but there aren't too many stores near me that carry them. Enjoy the class tomorrow!!

Laura

I ordered 4 different times and went from 0 - 102!

1st order I thought I would just get the SU color matches that I use the most.
2nd order I needed all of the rest of the SU matches and In Colors.
3rd order I needed gray and earths for people & animals.
4th ordered I realized I needed more light colors.

Super addictive, but I have a great assortment now and after getting Memento ink and Gina K paper have been coloring up a storm. I have a long way to go in the coloring department!

I placed 3 and the first one kind of in anticipation but like you, I was starting with zero (and I'd never used them before). So my first order was for 33 and the glitter pens.
2nd order was for 42 more so that I had 75 and was a gift to myself out of my tax $$.
3rd order arrived yesterday and was for 20 so I'd have 95 and the opaque paint, I like the way it looks but not gotta learn to use that too.

I played with them most the day today, however, didn't color one thing, just colored in my chart, made a new color chart on the paper I'll be stamping on and then some test blending and shadowing with different color combos. Tomorrow I hope to color images. I know I've 2 cards to make.

Anyway, a whole lotta markers later I FINALLY ordered myself that image I saw that hooked me on them in the first place.

So...here is my very own *First Kiss* all colored in my own style...

Thanks for letting me share!!
That's an awesome color job AND a super cute image!!!

That's a really nice job!! I hope mine start looking as cute but I guess I better practice instead of play with them coloring an image instead of blending colors or on the computer.

Can I color images printed on my inkjet printer? I am {fairly} certain a laser printer is fine, but not sure about inkjet. Anyone know?
TIA
