I made my sphere from a cropped stained glass window, increased the contrast negative RGB blend. I then shaped it into an egg-like shape, borrowed a Faberge egg stand photo from cyber land, and fit the egg. I used a digital flowered backdrop for portraits and used the craquelure filture for texture. I used another layer of backdrop for the lighting effect at 79%. I used trim from the wall of another photo for the base under the stand, burned shadows under. Lastly I framed it and used the same texture/flower layer. I also burned a shadow on left side of egg to match the lighting effect.
