Thanks again everyone. I hope y'all don't think I actually made this beautiful rose multi-toned. It grew this way, wish I knew it's name. I just accented the edges in the red channel, selected the center and inversed it, (I liked the center just as it was), and applied dry brush, cross hatching and blur tool to rest of rose to give it a painterly effect. #481311
