My card is A2 size, opening tent style at the bottom. I rounded the top corners using the Corner Chomper. I used just a portion of the image, Queen Anne's Lace, on this card cutting the butterfly and part of the flowers out with a Circle Nestie. I used Spellbinder's Labels 22 as a background layer, it was a little too long, so I cut a section of the middle out and pieced the two halves back together, giving me a shorter shape.
Here are the Copics I used for the inage. I colored the entire background with B0000 and then BG90. After coloring the background I used the fur technique to create the background with the Copic Blending Solution and a rag, giving it a slightly textured finish. I used the same colors for the butterfly and flowers, keeping things really simple.
I used foam tape in between some of the layers. A few gems to embellish and of course... a bow along the bottom!
