A rework and a tiny little bit done to this one. 

Laid down the floral shot using perspective tools, then from the original shot copy and pasted in the centre floral stem and bits around it, added a cut crystal effect from the overlaid original shot onto the stem, that was then cut and pasted in, cut and pasted in a couple of monarch butterfly shots I've taken over the years after they were outlined, finally added some shadows. 

So all done in 1.30 mins. Ah ha. I think next time we bypass the info, because I've probably forgotten 50 steps at least.  :D

All the best folks and please, lets see some more in here!

Your way too good at this to not be making fortunes with your work. I hope you are because your work is amazing. To do that in 1.30 minutes is unbelievable!!!

A bit more than my joking 1.30 mins. Now days it's more like ahhhh..... 2-3 hours Joe. They have ended up in a few places, but I wouldn't want to have to make money out of them Joe. Takes a lot of fun out of it. I do marquetry timber inlaid furniture, pictures, chess boards, etc. That keeps me busy enough :)  

All the best Joe and much appreciated thank you.

Wonderful fantasy effect, Danny. Keeps me guessing-wonder what those monarchs think of that golden ball. Your skills are amazing! I can well imagine the time it would take to create something like this. Fun stuff!
