Sunday Postcard Art

The theme at Sunday Postcard Art this week is 'goddess'. I decided to go with one of da Vinci's drawings.

Credits: butterflies & border- Ruby Rynne; background - ACF, R. Rynne & A. Sexton

I amalgamated several backgrounds, applying different filters to each layer. Once I was happy with it, I added and coloured the border on the left-hand side.  The image of the lady was black and white initially but I darkened it and erased the background behind it, achieving the mottled, vintage colouring.
