I made it into an embroidery pattern. I stitched it out and then tested coloring it.
I'm not too sure how long the color will last. That's part of the test. I just used regular markers so they are TOTALLY water soluble hence the color bleed on 4. I did that on purpose to give it a watercolor feel... I actually like it, but it needs more, I just wanted to wait until it dried to see what was needed where. The only thing I believe would be color safe is to paint it with acrylic paint....but that would be an entirely different look.
