Filter Friday: Colored Pencil Filter Challenge

I got my Photoshop Elements today and began my first filter challenge. GIMP may be free but Elements makes this fun and easy. I took my sunflower photo (below) and played. I even followed Rachel Clark's directions, which is just about a first for me, and I love what I got (especially the large view when you click on the photo). I spent a lot of time playing with the sliders. I want to do it again and again with different background and foreground colors. I find that I enjoy dark photos and, here, dark colored pencil filter photos. The abstract nature of the new photo intrigues me. Thank you, Rachel, for your challenge. I can do so much more with my photos now. For only $80.
