Fresco Rose

This is my entry for this week's Take a Word challenge "Roses". Old world imagery "Mary Queen of Roses" from Dover books, blended with rose imagery with the "Fresco" filter added in Photoshop, and background from Pink Lotty.  I'm posting a bit early as I have to work tomorrow but will be back in the afternoon to join in with the challenge!

  7. So original, so beautiful, so touching. This is a picture that requires more than a cursory glance. I love a design that asks me to explore further and this is a magnificent example. You have taken the rose theme and placed it so exquisitely in every nook and cranny of the piece. (Love the soft outlines on the beautiful face). Great work.
