  2. Re-size the rooster digital image to measure 12cm high and print on white card.
  3. Colour the image using the Copic markers listed in the guide below or of your own choice!
  4. Add hatch lines as shown to the inside of the hat with a brown pencil. Also, draw a checked pattern on the dress with a Copic multiliner and white gel pen.
  5. Trim the image to measure 9.5x12.5cm and distress the edges using a distressing tool.
  6. Cut a piece of gingham paper to measure 10x13.5cm and distress the edges, using a distressing tool. Layer the image in the middle.
  7. Using the second largest die, die-cut the frame from Kraft card three times and glue each on top of the other.
  8. Attach twine diagonally around the bottom right corner of the frame and tie in a bow at the front. Stick the frame over the image at an angle to finish.
