Calico Creations #2, I masked the background to isolate the birds.
Using several layers I blended scanned calico fabric onto the nuthatch photo.
I drew leaves and created the new background.

Wow! Impressive job on both ends! Nuthatches are my husbands favorite birds, but they are so hard to catch sitting still. Great job!

Truly beautiful work, it has an Oriental look to me, something you would see in one of those old shops in China Town. Very creative indeed=^..^=

Obviously, your friend with the rainbow devilled eggs is not the only one with artistic talent. This is exceptionally well done, Irene, and its First Place Gold Win was totally deserved. Another belated Congratulations!
