Using my favorite Reverse Matting technique, I placed my photo over the Donna Salazar patterned paper and traced in pencil. Then added a 3/4" trace, leaving the portions of the design out of the trace.
With an exacto knife I cut out the middle of the paper, then inked and out-lined with a second hand cut layer of cardstock.
