This used to be a dahlia ... by pistache

This used to be a dahlia ...

... a macro shot with lots of cream, bright pink and yellow. Totally inspired by the beautiful creations of Chantal @shepherdmanswife I gave this a go using the link she so kindly posted: http://www.slrlounge.com/twirls-hot-new-photoshop-trend/. I didn't hold out much hope as I still find PS pretty baffling, but hey presto - I followed the instructions, and it actually worked :) There's a whole load more playing to be done so this is just the beginning
Many thanks Chantal @shepherdmanswife for the inspiration
