    Carisa, this is absolutely FANTASTIC!! Holy cow woman I can’t believe that you never mentioned a word about this. I have to say that I am now bummed that we didn’t get to meet up and color. I have a card I’d love to share with you – I worked hard on coloring her – I hope you’d be proud.

    Congrats on this – it’s gorgeous.

    Congrats on the mag! I have just flipped it, and i am loving what i see!
    I have always missed a mag just for the coloring 🙂
    I love to color, and i color with distress ink, Prisma color pencils and Pro/FlexMarkers myself.
    Always nice to see other colorist and to learn!!
    Keep up the good work, now i am off to read the mag 😉
    Hugs from Maya

    Wow just what I have been looking for. I love to colour but I am not very good at it. Will you be having any king of how to’s with Copics?
    I really need to learn how to blend.

    Thanks ladies
