Spider flowers

I took this shot at Silver Dollar City. I thought it was unusual and some of the "flower children" on the forum might have a go at it.

Fooling around in PS7...Blurred the background then BuzzPro Simplify, Anisotropic filter, Paint Daubs, Buzz Pro Water color stack, Spatter, overlaid with a water color pattern set to difference.

I like the variation on oil painting.

Bubba,
Nice neon effect.

Lovely photo, Bubba. Thanks for sharing it. That's a great neon look...wow!

Jim, nice painting effect from Photoshop...that texture really works!

Tony, that second one looks like embossed silk at $45/yard!

A nice variety of creative renditions here...this group just gets better and better!

I tried some intense blend modes with a buzzpro simplified version and a high pass layer until I got an almost pure black background, then inverted and recolored it. I removed the few green leafy spots that remained in the background by painting over them with white, then made a pattern layer, turned it yellow-green, and blended it with multiply to make the crackly green background pattern. Finally used stroke to make a tiny border. Reminded me of a note card, thus the name.

Nice ethereal effect Pam. Almost expect to see fairies and elves popping into it.

Jim - looks like it should be hanging on a wall

Tony - nice 3-D look to yours - looks like you can reach out and feel them

Phyllis - your, as always, is gerat - makes me think of a tile painting

Pam - such a soft feel - indeed like a soft spring day
