Hello . Had to make a bright colored card , gloomy weather here ... Ice storm . I tried my hand at the PTI MIM # 235 adding color to stamped images , I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out since I fused with it so much . Maybe I should have chosen a small image to color ? Added some shimmer to the background for interest . Thanks for visiting .

Hello , a late night posting for me . My boys had chess practice tonight , so I didn't get a chance to create as early as I'd have liked to. This card didn't photograph as well as I would have liked it to . I stamped the image in versamark and then dusted on some colored pearl ex . It really is really colorful .
