It seems [System.Drawing.Color] exists in Powershell_ise.exe by default, but not in powershell.exe.

In the .psm1 file, put "Add-Type -Assembly System.Drawing" at the top.

In addition, it seems you have to cd into the module directory, for it to find the .dll files - alternatively, put the module in a "Modules" folder that is within a directory in your PATH variable.
