Don’t Give Up! Work through your Copic problems


Don’t Give Up! Work through your Copic problems

This video goes out to those who love when I include BLOOPS! Before watching, see if you can spot the big problem….then keep an eye out for it in the video as I color it with my Copics. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Even with a big bloop – nobody but you and I will know it’s there, right? As long as you keep quiet too. 🙂

  1. Darling card! Thank you for the video.

  2. Sandy, excellent video!! Thanks for sharing your blooper because if that was me I WOULD have tossed it. So glad to know there a way to cover up the oops! I have said many times YOUR AMAZING ‍

  3. Great seeing blooper reel. Helps us to figure out how to recover. Plus you are just awesome and can do it all.

  4. This was so helpful. Thanks very much!

  5. Totally enjoyed your video! Thank you! You have such great talent!

  6. PINNED for reference. Thanks for the lesson and your card is wonderful as always!

  7. What an adorable card. Thank you so much for showing your “blooper” process! I’m saving this video, for sure! ♥

  8. Great job getting rid of the Blooper! I don’t have Copics but love to watch your coloring videos. I learn so much. Maybe, some of it will work with the Spectrum Noir that I have. Thanks for showing mistakes as we all can learn from those.

  9. I love your bunnies, Art Impression stamps are awesome. When I have messed up before with Copics or markers, I have removed what color I could let it dry and at the end of coloring, I have layered colored pencils on top of the marker to hide the mistake, sometimes it works and sometimes it does not, but it seems like the colored pencil layers on top of the marker. But I like your way also.

  10. Such a beautiful card!! My heart stopped for a moment when the blooper happened, even though I knew it was coming!! Thanks for sharing it with us.

  11. Thank you for sharing your bloopers and how to recover from them. I would have thrown that card straight into the bin when that Copic went splat. I think you make great teaching videos and I love that you explain your thought process.

  12. Always love the way you teach and inspire

  13. Love the bunnies. Thank you so much for sharing all of your experiences and expertise.

  14. Love this!
    Sandy – two question: if and when you travel with your Copics, do you bring them on your carry-on or in your check baggage? And, if you bring them in your carry-on, have you had any problems with TSA?
    Thanks so much.

  15. Thanks for the encouragement to not give up on the coloring when we make mistakes! You recovered splendidly! The card was adorable and I had to laugh at the critter that turned up in the video! Great job!

  16. Cute card. Loved seeing how you fixed a blooper. TFS

  17. Love your coloring and card. Now to order that stamp through your link.

  18. Tried to watch video but YouTube not a secure site won’t let me in is there a problem?

  19. Such a fun card, Sandy. Thanks for the helpful tutorial. It seems that we need to go slowly both when colouring AND when correcting mistakes lol.

  20. OMG – I had a blooper just last night! Like you, I was lucky that it was a fairly light color and the blender marker pretty much took care of it… but I’m SO glad it doesn’t JUST happen to me! Good ideas about drawing the eye away from that area, tho,and the ideas on camouflaging… I’ll write those down somewhere, so I don’t forget – because it WILL happen again someday!
    Thanks again, for all you do – you’re always my first stop on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

  21. You are sooooo good ! Thanks for sharing your talent.
