Something different

Hi Everyone, I have something different, for me anyway! This lovely lady is a freebie from East Wind, I have always loved her images, it's a lady in her traditional Korean dress, I was aware of the style of traditional dress, but didn't know if colours were important, so went to find out on the web and found the inspiration for the colours with this image.

I made a gradient colour scheme in PS to match her dress and used overlays for the background layers and as the white background around the image looked a little stark, I decided to add colour and it made her stand out a bit I think. All designed and coloured in PS. After printing out and layering and 3D the image, I also added a Tonic butterfly die and a flag I made in PS and printed out for the sentiment. Hope you like her.

  6. What a fabulous interpretation of the photo! Your integration of the colors and even the image selection are so spot on! You retain the feel of the original, but the coloring and techniques are all very much today! Thanks for leaving this wonderful work on our front porch at 613 Avenue Create, we were delighted to find it there!
