Something a bit different today for a change - an astrantia with some texture added - not much else to say about it, except thanks for looking in and for any comments and/or criticisms.
Also, more thanks for the lovely UAs on Big sky over Taransay to Bob (KingBee), Dougie (scottishlandscapes), Julie (jujupops) and Keith (Niknut). Smile
The sun's out here this morning ....

It's quite a delicate flower so one doesn't want to overdo the texturing but I think you have got it about right here, Ann: very nicely done indeed.

This is delightful work Ann, delicate tracery and the overlay is very subtle and understated. An image which would look good in so many rooms.
