Pretty in Pink

Gloxinia-with-crackerjack-textureLR

Kim’s Challenge this week was to use her texture called “Cracker Jack”  I really like the plastery feel of this texture.  The gloxinia was a gift from my husband’s uncle who knows that I love a pretty flower.   It has flowered off and on in it’s pot outside on a shelf on the fence.  I will be joining Kim Klassen Café for Texture Tuesday.    Valerie

What a pretty effect. I haven't had a gloxinia for many years - perhaps it's time to try them again.

Such a pretty and subtly coloured gloxinnia [?} and it looks great against the texture at its thickest setting.

My father grew gloxinia when I was a child, love your capture and texture enhancement.

The pink flower really pops against the textured background.

The contrast of worn texture with the fresh pink of the gloxinia creates a lovely composition. Beautifully done.

Looks wonderful. I love the brightness of the pink against the texture.
