Dasmoto’s Arts & Crafts challenge, problems with adding a background image

I’ve just completed the Dasmoto’s Arts & Crafts challenge. We are supposed to make a webpage following these instructions: https://content.codecademy.com/courses/freelance-1/unit-2/dasmotos-arts_redline.jpg
I think I finished the task, but I can’t manage to put the background-image for the h1.
Here is my code.

index.html :

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="./resources/css/index.css">
    <h1 class= "bold" >Datsmoto's Arts & Crafts</h1>

.bold {
    font-weight: bold;

    font-family: Helvetica;

    color: blue;

h1 {
    font-size: 100px;
    color: khaki;
    text-align: center;
    background-image: url('/resources/images/img_1.jpeg');

    color: white;
    font-size: 32px;

.greenblue {
    background-color: mediumspringgreen;

.pink {
    background-color: lightcoral;

    background-color: skyblue;`Preformatted text`

The is how my tree looks: image

Thanks you for your time.

The image path should be relative to the CSS file. The ‘/’ should work on a server, but it won’t work on local files.
So the path from the CSS should be: ‘…/images/img_1.jpeg’
