I put this 8" scrapbook page together recently when I was trying to come up with a project on which to use my colored image.
The background is a 8" x 8" piece of medium yellow card stock. On top of this, I placed a piece of lighter yellow card stock that I'd embossed with the new Die'sire 6" x 6" Floral Frenzy embossing folder. I trimmed this piece down to about 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square. I attached it to the base card stock (as a diamond shape) with the Extra Strong Permanent tape.

I ran a piece of the lighter yellow card stock through the printer. I printed out the sentiment in an orange color to match my colored image. I cut it where it was wider at the left side than it was at the right. I notched the left end. I placed this on the page, just covering the bottom of the picture. Again, I used the permanent tape (toward the skinnier end) and the adhesive foam (on the thicker end) to attach the cut out to the page.
On a piece of Ultra Smooth Premium White Card stock, I put the image of the girl from the Humphrey EZMount set - Birthday Girl. I used simple masking and then placed the image of the bouquet of roses from the Humphrey EZMount set - Flowers For You to look like the girl was holding them behind her back.
I colored the image with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers along with other alcohol markers to color the girl image. After the image was colored, I cut it out leaving a tiny margin of the white card stock. I attached this to the scrapbook page, over the end of the sentiment and covering a small part of the bottom right-hand corner, with the permanent tape.
I was really pleased with the way this turned out. My Mom loved flowers.
Until next time, I am ever searching for inspiration.
