Colorado Craft Company Anita Jeram Release – March, 2022

Hello Everyone and welcome back! Today I am excited to share this Family Love card I created for the Colorado Craft Company & Anita Jeram Blog Hop.

This fun family scene made me giggle, and I had to color it first. This crazy family portrait is just so full of love and kid craziness! Isn’t it adorable?

I thought it would be fun to Copic color this scene on Kraft cardstock. The important thing to understand about Copic coloring on Kraft is that the marker color is translucent. So it is much less vibrant than when you color on white cardstock. For that reason, I added details and highlights with Prismacolor pencils after I finished the Copic coloring.

The only detail I forgot to add before photographing was to use a black Micron Pigment pen to re-draw the eyes and other black details over the final colored image. Oh well. Hopefully, I will remember next time.


Colorado Craft Company will select one commenter from each designer’s blog to receive a 4”x6” stamp set from this release. Commenting closes midnight MT March 31st, and the winners will be notified by 3C.

  1. Hi Erin, I am new to your Blog. I really love your Family Love card. It’s so cute the way you colored all the mice babies different colors. I like how you made the patches on the couch really stand out. The bow and sequins are a nice touch. Lastly, I like your ideas of using colored pencils to highlight areas colored with Copics. I did not know you could use them that way, so Thanks.
