The images were then colored using Mission Gold watercolors. After the watercolor had dried completely, Antique Linen Distress Oxide was blended into the white areas of the background. Next, a square nesting die was used to create a thin frame. Then a cream piece of 4 ¼ x 5 ½ piece of paper was trimmed about 1/8 around each side. The watercolor piece was then adhered to the cream paper. This piece was then adhered to the thin frame.
