I took a photograph of this yellow rose some months ago and have played with it ever since to little effect. Until, that is, someone posted a link on Facebook — in the Texture Artists group — to the British artist Sarah Gardner who also sells beautiful textures. Registering with her site gives you a free download of four textures. I added the one pictured below and I was off and running!
The typography elements are from a vintage advert for the Café Royal in London’s Regent Street from one of my theatre periodicals dated late 19th and early 20th century, Play Pictorial.
Take care and keep laughing!
