Creative interpretations: Flowers - Wallflowers

I wish you guys could smell these as well as see them. They are really quite fragrant, as well as lovely to look at.

A nice card to send back to the relatives who are still shoveling snow.

These looked like they'd be fun to play with. On this first image, I played almost entirely with layer modes, with a slight addition of texture.

Here's another view. I don't know quite what to call this. One layer had some brush strokes on it, the rest was mostly playing with layer blend modes.

BK, love your card...well done!

Tyeise, both of yours look like fabric prints...very nice!

Here's my first try at it. First I cropped and enlarged to concentrate on fewer flowers.

What kind of flowers are these? They're gorgeous!!!

Excellent entries thusfar. All winners!

No matter what I tried, these really wanted to be chalk flowers drawn on a blackboard. Who am I to stand in the way? Far be it from me to stifle the awesome power of the flower.

Amanda, wow...you really did achieve the "colored chalk on blackboard" look! Great job!

I used to have wallflowers in my garden...came up for a few springs then one year they were just gone for good. I even tried planting new seeds twice...still no wallflowers. I miss them...they were such a beautiful schoolbus yellow and gold, and smelled good too. Sigh.

Anyway...here's an embroidery.

And I really like the delicate look of this one. Started with accented edges followed by outline method, followed by anisotropic diffuse and sharpening, then finally KPT6 equalizer (don't know how I lived without that amazing filter).
