Have just come from watching 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'. I've always been bored to death by it, so you might say the booby traps were overkill. The difference between that and this, is that hopefully you would be able to pick these lilies without being trundled over by a large stone ball.

The background is a mix of gradients and merged Apophysis fractals. I created the flowers in Paintshop Pro 7... the petals are partly layer style (Photoshop Elements 2) and partly gradient. The gold layer style was by Shelby Kate Schmitz (number 41 from 101 Assorted Layer Style Effects). There are some beautiful layer styles out there, but it frustrates me that I can't make my own as I only have Photoshop Elements. Perhaps one day...

Fantastic creation!!!! Very unique and such cool texture's and color!! This is so interesting and creative!! I love seeing and learning what others do as it inspires me to do the same, well kind of the same.Either way this makes me want to go back to using/starting my PS Elements and learning how to use the dang program. Thanks for such cool piece of art.

This is so precious, and so lovely. THe little flowers are sweet and the whole creation is what i will put on my desktop right now. I need something cheery. This would make a beautiful silk scarf or maybe a stained glass creation. It's truly so pretty. Thank you ever so much. Congrats on this. Verena

Stunning! I love everything about this, Tootles! It seems to have a touch of an Asian flair about it, which I love! The transparent layered background is beautiful! The lilies are so sweet, with a bit of whimsy! The shine and colours are so very well done! Looks like a lot of work went into it, but well worth the results :) Did I say, I love it? Love it! Saved + faved.
