The pictures I take are only ever a starting point, most end up as photoshop brushes and the rather crappy lo-fi ones from the last time are no exception. Totally unexceptional to look at just as they were they offered all kinds of possibilities once turned into brushes . . . like the one above. A few ideas . . . .
And then that rather dreary one taken the day it rained. I did add a bit of noise to this one, not something I usually do because it tends to look so obvious.
And a kind of sepia thing . . . I started with a dark brown background layer and chose a pale milky coffee colour for the stamp.
And then for good measure stick 'em all together and see what you get. Has possibilities I think don't you? Must get some more black card I'm thinking and try some more photos.
