Color Me Gold Papers give you so much versatility because you can custom match them to any of your photos. I colored this Gold Floral paper by misting it with Walnut Ink Spray Antiquing Solution.

Simply place the Color me paper over newsprint and spray with the walnut ink. While the mist is still wet, wipe with a paper towel. Repeat over the entire sheet until colored, but do not saturate the paper. Place a piece of wax paper or a 12x12 sheet protector over the drying paper and place something heavy over it until dry. This will keep the paper corners from rolling. When dry simply use it like any other scrapbook paper.

You can also color the paper with the surface of an inkpad, rubbing the color into the paper.

  1. After coloring the Color Me Gold Paper chocolate brown with Walnut Ink Spray or an inkpad, turn over and trace the 11 1/2” frame onto the back using pencil. Cut it out and glue to the dark brown cardstock so that the frame extends off the left edge of the cardstock. Trim the excess frame even with the cardstock.
  2. Mat a 5”x7” photo with both metallic gold paper and white cardstock, leaving 1/8” wide borders for each. Glue to the center of the fame. Write on the coordinating tag, leaving the background white and using markers color the flower details. Secure the medium brown and small white flower to the lower left photo corner using gold brads. Glue the tag to extend from under the brown flower.
  3. Cut out and glue the white/gold scalloped Color Me Gold border to the right side of the page, 3/4” from the right edge of the cardstock. Place four 3-D butterfly Dazzles™ on the brown cardstock on the left side of the border. Place 1 large butterfly on the upper right corner of the photo and 2 small gold flowers among the silk flowers at the bottom left corners.
