Flypaper Textures

Rosa Antiquus (with recipe)

I rediscovered this one when I was hunting for something to process earlier, my archives are full of things I’ve forgotten about -mainly because I have such a hard time finding anything!
Anyway…after much playing with different texture combinations and then tying to get the tone “just right” this is what I came up with.
Necropolis -Overlay 46%
Bruised Saffron Soft light 29%
Raw Linen Soft light 43% (with a layer mask added and the texture removed a bit from the rose)
The texturing done, I added a curves layer to tweak the contrast and colour a little, and then I used a Black and White adjustment layer at Luminosity blending mode, which gave a subtle lift to the colour.
