What Lies Within

Patricia A. Kuniega 1/9/2005 5:46:32 AM

Judy, this was the first image I've seen since waking up this morning! lol What a way to start the day! You've been in some strange gardens lately and this is quite a find!! What a unique concept and great execution. I think I'm going to stay away from flowers for awhile... #203468

Judith G. Secco 1/9/2005 5:55:00 AM

Thanks, Pat. I was so bored during yesterday's ice storm. I dragged up an old photo and played in photoshop just for something to do. Don't know what possessed me to make this evil looking! #1023656

Thanks everyone. Leanne, it was actually a red rose that I changed the color on and used KPT hypertile plugin (something I won on DIC Cafe) to change the contour of the flower.
