A Tough One!

I wanted to do something for the challenge over on Make-It-Colourful.  This one was a toughy for me because it lends itself to finding the perfect image that might cast a reflection or source of light onto the surfaces around it.  Well I decided as I did not have the right image I would make the image I had the right image to use.  I used the lady bug in this image to cast a light onto the surfaces around it, as if it was a red light.  It was fun to do and opens many door for more light sources.  All you have to do is use a little imagination :)  I happen to have a LOT!!  I would have love to have time to color this again before submitting to make things a little crisper and more refined...but who has time for that.
Petals ADDED
And a few hours later I decided to add more layers to the flower and enter it into The Emerald Faeries blog challenge calling for PETALS :)

Wonderful! What did you do around the outside edge? Fabric scrap? Flicked ink? Very cool.
