Tip: When you score your card base make certain you place another piece of paper over the top of the card prior to scoring to achieve a crisp fold without getting unwanted lines on your finished card.
Tip 2: You will save a lot of blood, sweat and tears if you select your cardstock and designer paper prior to coloring your focal image. You may find you want to alter the Copic Marker shades or ink media based on your available paper. This is a taken from someone who did not always follow this rule! LOL!
I used Memento Ink and a brayer to set my background. I stamped the background with GKD image from "Farm Life"
This adorable image is a digital from Just Inked called "Cocker Spaniel Pup" Doesn't he just look like he is so sad and missing your soooo much?! I colored the image with Copic markers and paper pieced the image over my background.
I applied ribbon and embelishmentst I used Fancy Labels for my sentiment.
