I still have a bunch of lilypads to post here and on the "wall", one from Audrey and a few by Diane, but until I do (and I will, be patient - I work slowly), enjoy this funky bloom by Debi:

I used the circle selector to select spots all over the non-flower part of the image.
And then I gave it a "Twirl".
I selected water pieces using the magic wand and gave them a "Ripple."
I doctored up a few of the obscured waterlily petals with paint and smear. (Not as good a result as I would have liked.)
And, I think that's it. I was inspired by Frances' 70s Slick Lily.
Well, I'm inspired by all of you - this has been fun, and for the sophomore project, I'm looking for something a little more difficult to work on. Tune back in...
