Wanda, what a beautiful watercolour effect. It really does look like it was hand painted on paper. It's lovely and subtle and alive.
Very nice.

Mama Alligator, thank you so much I love Hummingbirds, so I spent some enjoyable moments on this one. Thanks again, kind comments sometimes is the only thing that keeps us going when were down

Trimoon, thank you!!! Coming from the master, and my inspiration I have been trying to figure out what you do, but I'm not even close I'm afraid! I REALLY love your last entry, but you never have a bad one do you Thanks

Wanda

here's my attempt at this one. all I did was use curves and experiment with lots of different filters.

David, I love the 3D effect you achieved. The flowers seem to pop right out of the picture...I wanted to pick one! Great use of filters and curves.

Everyone does such great work here! I enjoyed working on this mini-challenge and I'm pleased with the results I ended up with.

I tried Trimoon's way of doing things, but got lost in the process and ended up on a different path. You have really beautiful work!

So here's kinda some stuff I did:

(I'll try and be short)
Extracted the flowers and bird and then created the background using filter>render>clouds.
Applied crosshatch strokes filter to bird and flowers.
Merged some layers and created mask and painted away!
Used smudge tool to blend background and bird and flowers.
Filter>stylize>emboss with soft light
Filter>texturizer>sandstone.

I know there is more I did, but I can't remember it all- sorry.

JLC:
Dorking away at things is what many of us do best around here! Another very nice rendition & plentiful detail.

David:
These mini's are getting to be a habit with you! It's great to see you're having fun with these.

Steve:
Breathtaking.

Chiquitita:
You could turn a horrible image into a great work of art with your skills! Glad this one was among the better ones to work with.

Ya wanna do something fun sometime? Go back and look through some of the minis from a month or so back. You guys and girls just keep getting BETTER!
