Aurora edition

The challenge for Texture Tuesday this week is utilizing Kim Klassen's "Aurora" texture with any photograph.  In this case, I used a photo I took of some glorious flowers at a market in Provence.  I love the way this turned out


(mouse over to see the before)

What I did:

1.  opened my image
2.  duplicated image - multiply - opacity 70%
3.  Added Kim's "KK2" texture - screen - opacity 73%
4.  Added Kim's "Aurora" texture; made a levels adjustment - opacity 65%
5.  added bevel

(This is the first time I've tried adding the rollover feature to my blog.  I hope it works!)

Oh well done, your rollover works. I haven't got my head around that feature yet. The texture work looks great on your interesting flowers.
