Texture Tuesday...Natural Edition...

Our prompt this week for Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday is

What's more natural that a beautiful butterfly, on wild Verbena?

We had so many, in the meadow behind our house.

I desaturated the image.
Then, added two layers of Kim's texture ' And Then Some'...
once @ multiply 100%
once @ soft light 90%
Then a layer of Kim's 'Oh My' @ hard light 79%
And, a layer of Kim's 'Cracker Jack' @ multiply 100%

I masked most of the textures off a couple blooms and the butterfly.

It came out nice and soft.  

Here's the original.

Hop over to Kim's place, and see some beautiful texture work.
