Parasol Postcard


This is my entry for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge where the theme is "Umbrellas". I decided to use a lovely image with a Japanese parasol over three layers of backgrounds. The pin light filters give this piece its rustic red highlights . I also addded a torn paper filter for an aged appearance.
