Tulip on Antique Paper

Uploaded: April 20, 2011

Background paper is very old, from 1908. It is the backside of my husband's grandparent's certificate of marriage. The two images were edited and married in Photoshop CS2.

This is very unusual to me, Denise, and very nice. I really like the inclusion of the bulb. Placed on the background as it is, the result is that of a strange reflection image that suggests the full life cycle and shows the metamorphosis from bulb to flower. #1370980
