8" x 10" frame

Cut out the background from your photo.
Scan the cut-out image, and increase the brightness and contrast. Copy machines have options that allow you to do this directly through the copy machine. Just practice on copy paper before printing it onto the colored cardstock. When you get it how you like it, with bright whites and contrasting darks, print onto the cardstock.
Print out the background texture onto the contrasting cardstock. You can download the texture by clicking here.
Trim the image from the first printed paper, leaving a little border around the edge.
Spray the back of the trimmed-out image and mount it to the background texture.
Use the glass from your frame to see where to trim the excess paper from the textured background so that it fits in an 8" x 10" frame. Keep in mind while trimming that you want a border around the edge of the texture to show when framed.
