Make a Moo Or Two - Kiss

The theme at Make a Moo Or Two this week is A Kiss and this is my interpretation.

The statue is one from my own collection of photographs. I added a blue background, duplicated the whole thing and and blended first with multiply and then with a second layer blended with screen. After flattening the whole image I added a posterize filter, followed by an outline filter. Finally I made a drop shadow and added bevel and emboss to give the whole thing a raised edge.

The font is Dakota Handwriting.

Thanks for looking.

Honestly, Taluula, at first glance at this beautiful MOO, I thought it was hand drawn and hand lettered! Beautiful work!

Also, I must say that I love your new, relaxing background and wonderful header! I'm SO impressed! It's so relaxing - all I need is a Pina Colada!!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo
