Michelle asked us to use color on our cards today. YAY! I think that is one of my favorites :)
I made the background panel by using the embossing folder first, then smearing some Gelato colors over the card, then wipe with a baby wipe to soften the colors and help them blend a little.
The AI image was sent by Fran (Phil's Mom) Thanks Fran!!! I colored it with Copic markers.
I also added some color to the two outer roses so they would match the color palette better (they were both a pale yellow to start). I used my distressing tool too.
Fun challenge! Can't wait to see what some of our SUPER colorers (is that a word?) make!

Hey we're both rockin' the AI images today and we're next to each other in the gallery.. :) I love the soft colors on your tea lady and how you matched them on the embossed frame..cool! Of course your signature flowers adorn the frame and match her hat I think. Lovely card Kathleen!!
