A Reverse Color Card

I don't if that's the right terminology for this card.  I downloaded a coloring page from the internet.  I had read a tutorial on how to change the outline color of a digital image.  So I thought I would give it a try.  I was working on it in Photoshop Elements. My version is an old one but it does a lot more than I know how to do.  Any way, while I was working on it, I managed to reverse the colors.  The background became green instead of the outline.  I could have changed it but liked the way it looked.  I printed it out and decided to try one of the Promarker techniques Enfys Cashmore from Going Buggy had on her blog last week.  It was how to color white images with Promarkers.  You use very little color.  I tried it on the white flowers.
I made this card for my sister to give to someone who is ill.  I didn't have a cartridge that had Get Well Soon on it so I used the Thinking of You phrase on the Stamping cartridge.  I also cut the message frame from Stamping.  The background paper is Anna Griffin's Carolina Collection.  I used Martha Stewart's Scroll Lace punch to decorate the edges of the papers.  I hope this card will cheer this lady.

Thank you for visiting our blog today.  God Bless You!!  Peggy
