My friend Susan -- who you have certainly heard about in the past recently commissioned me to do a couple of cards for her -- one (the one here) for her sister Adelle's birthday in October. Now, creating a card for someone else, based on what they believe you are capable of doing, can be somewhat stressful. Adelle is a computer-type person who works in the IT industry in California. One would think that would be relatively easy --- NOT! The image choice was an easy one. Victoria Case has the perfect one -- The first background I did - and mounted --- I actually hated -- which then sent me into a slump - I couldn't proceed until I solved the problem with the card --- in short, except for the colouring I had to start over.... On my way home from work one night it came to me --- I'd find a background that was computer related. I had first wanted to recreate the drizzling binary code like in the movie Matrix, but couldn't find anything suitable. So, I looked for binary backgrounds, found one I liked and printed it to become the background. I then got my husband to bring some of those ripped off pieces from forms home and voila!
