I'm linking up with Texture Tuesday at the Cafe. Join us this summer for the Free and Easy Edition. Just use at least one of Kim's textures on a photo and link up.
I started with a lightened versioned of my SOOC shot.
First I added a sharpening layer using the Highpass filter, set on Overlay and masked to reveal the sharpening on just the flower.
Added kk_sonnet2, Softlight 90%, masked away most, but not all of the words from the petals and stem.
Added kk_Partings, Overlay 100% and masked it partially off to reveal the petals.
At this point, I didn't like the way the buds looked in the lower right corner.
Adding a blank layer above the Background layer and using the Clone Stamp tool, I cloned them higher and nearly off the page.
I also touched up a few spots with the clone stamp tool in the upper left.
I had so much fun with this I did another.
