Post 3+ Months Ago

I was playing with masking on top of a Leaf stock image in Fireworks a few months ago.
Just made some random shapes, then dragged the edges over themselves to create inverted areas for the masking.

Didn't really have a goal for the strange shape that resulted, then a few days ago I happened across the shape when I was looking for somthing else & thought
Quote:
That kinda looks like a piece of paper that was folded & cut to make a snowflake that ended up looking like a butterfly


So, I dug up a piece of old paper stock for a background.
Found a small butterfly I'd been playing with awhile ago for a small hint at the bottom.
Linked "Butterfly" & "Leaf" together to get "Butterleafly".
Played with the burn tool to try out the branded/stained lettering technique I tried a few years ago.
Added some shadows to sorta make the shape jump out at me.
Adjusted the hue/saturation of the leaf to match it up with the paper a little & got this.

Then I came to post this thread & looked at the image again, it felt kinda monotone, so I removed the hue/saturation from the leaf & got this.

Comments, appreciated.

I voted for brown because I never seen a green butterfly. But, both of them look good.

Tricky question. The green seemed to convince me a bit more.

The color variation is nice with the green, too. With the brown it "almost" looks like a sepia variant. Not quite but almost. Besides green is a color of life, brown is a color of impending doom (i.e. fall>>winter)

I vote for the first one.

But in fact, hard to make a decision, for both look nice! :wink:

i voted green too, cos it's more vivid and more pleasant to the eye.
but for the current background and text, the brown one fits better.
