LeNae's Tip: I love the Color Me Papers. They allow me to easily create any color scheme that I like. When I am working with them I am reminded of how much fun I had as a child coloring with my Crayons and markers.

  1. Apply the lighter color of blue inkpad, Broken China, to the paper using the surface of the inkpad. Turn the paper in different directions as you rub the inkpad. This allows you to get ink around the embossed gold areas. Apply the second, darker color of ink, Stormy Sky, in random areas over the paper. Cover the entire paper with ink, even the border.
  2. Apply fuchsia ink to the border on the far left edge of the page. Wipe away excess ink using a paper towel. Use the green marker for the leaves and alternated coloring the flower blossoms purple and fuchsia. Spot color the flowers with Grape Stickles™. Apply dots of Stickles™ along the border and let dry. Hold 2 lengths of purple ribbon as one and tie a bow. Glue to the border near the bottom of the page.
  3. Mat the 5"x7" photo and the 3 1/2"x5" photo with purple cardstock, leaving 1/4" wide borders. Glue to the center of the page, overlapping.
  4. Color the tag with Broken China ink and the border with fuchsia marker. Write on the center of the tag and glue a small purple bow to the right side. Apply Grape Stickles™ to the fuchsia border. Glue to the bottom of the photos.
