A little of this, a little of that

 Okay, I did it. Not the best at it but I did it! Tracy has been nudging me we shall say to use some of the wonderful, adorable stamps I have along with my copics and color a card. I have only colored a few images and am sadly not very good at it. I know, I know you have to practice. Hee hee I get it, okay. LOL So here is practice I guess. I wasn't fond of the magnolia stamps at first. Now I love them. See how things, tastes change.  I only had one, a gift from a friend up until now. Then I see all these wonderful, color masters coloring them and broke down and ordered two new ones. There is just a few more I think I would like to have but all in good time.
  I used my MME lost and found2 blush papers from the 6 x 6 stack. The card measures 5.5 x 5.5. I love this size. I had the most trouble with the shoes! What colors do they use for the shoes. I used distress inks like they do in the magazine for the shoe and it did not turn out the way I had hoped. All in all I am happy with the first try with the magnolia stamp. Tons more to learn as you can see.
 I wanted to use a paper doily die I have, do you think I could find it? Nope the trolls are back apparently. LOL I keep all the dies in one spot, so I hope it peeks it's little head out of hiding soon.
 I have completed about 5 projects but I can't show them just yet. I am waiting for my partner to get them. I am in a swap with a friend and tomorrow she should have her goodies. I will share it all then.
 So all your color masters, Help a ol' pea out and tell me what to use to color those boots. Along with any other helpful tips please.
 Have a great Tuesday

This turned out perfectly Pea.
I think the shoes are fine.
The layout of the card and your coloured image are all stunning.
I think you are to hard on yourself. Your card is beautiful.

Thank you Tracy, you are always so encouraging. Yes, we are both kinda hard on ourselves. She liked the card I guess that is all that matters.
