Texture Tuesday

This week's challenge was a simple word.... PINK.  Well just so happens that my beautiful pink calla lilly bloomed and I captured some lovely shots.  I did some texture work and the following is what I came up with in the end.

I duplicated the original image twice the second on multiply 100%, I then added two black and white layers one normal at 91% and the second saturation 54%, I used masks to reveal the color from my calla lilly.  I added kk2 on screen mode, a magenta photo filter and a layer of aurora screen 100% with another mask.  I did a lot of tweaking today with this photo and I love the soft effect in the final image.  I wonder what you think. 

Ok so while I liked my original image it didn't translate as well on the blog as it did in my elements program so I went back and did some tweaking with the adjustment layers.  I also removed the black and white element of the photo.  I think I like the second version better.  It seems softer.
