Merry Monday #211 Blue, Gold, White/Silver

My friend, Colleen is the host on our last card for the summer.  She wants us to use blue, gold, white/silver.  
Ok, so I didn't read very carefully cause I thought it was the gold that was the option so my card has no gold in it.
 We are taking off July and August but be assured we will start up again in September to help you get your cards done ahead of time.

Tracey's card

Altenew Wild Hibiscus water colored with Ziggs.  I have a hard time with my Ziggs but it's getting a little better.  I actually practiced a bit with them a couple of days ago so felt a little more confident to do this one today.  Not liking the butterfly though.  I have such a hard time coloring them....

Second to last day of the Copic Jumpstart with Sandy Allnock
Working on hair and skin  Started with another image that I have always struggled with and I am still struggling with it so remembered I had this cute little girl and it turned out much better.  Such a great class and learned a lot.  One of the most important things is you have to practice a lot.
