A Different Approach To A Trading Card

I've been making artist trading cards for a while but this was a new approach for me.  It started with the background which I created a couple of years ago using acrylic paint on paper towel.  I scanned that and cropped it to atc size before proceeding.  I took the flower photo downtown last week, isolated it digitally and "planted" it on the background.  The rest is digital brushes (shapes and textures) and text.  I think I might have to try more of this, especially since I scanned about 10 other backgrounds!
