Very lovely.
Beautifully worked to the toning b/g.
Not a native British one methinks.

Lovely complimentary bg Fiona & well applied too.
Again,that stem just needs toning down a touch,especially near the bottom where your texture layer has darkened so too does your stem need to be.
Thanks Janet for the vote of confidence and the tip about the stem. Not quite sure how I'd do that. What about selecting the bottom section and applying a gradient??
I'd like to be able to fade it out altogether before the bottom, but haven't managed to do it successfully yet without it looking truncated. I guess that's about gradually reducing brush opacity but I can't get it smooth enough. Hmmm....

This is beautiful Fiona, the texture really compliments the flower, I tend to use the clone tool at a lower opacity to fade lower areas of stem if that helps Smile

Quote: I can't get it smooth enough.

That's all down to the gradient,you can apply one at a slightly less opacity or...double click onto the gradient itself,a box appears where you can adjust the sliders for a softer gradient.
Fading it out gradually is a different matter Fiona,I do mine with yet another layer added & gradually fade it away.
