I sacrificed a tee shirt for the cause doing my best to make a tie dye effect on it. Unfortunately, or not as the case may be, the colors ran all over each other. The pinkish tone works against the flower. I did not use regular clothing dye but food coloring....at lot cheaper...and several small rubber bands. The effect is only OK, I think. Pinned the shirt to my regular black velvet background and chopped down the flower and placed in position in front of the shirt by the RGB tie dye designs.

Post: In PSElements 3.0 (just got it...like it but it driving me a bit dotty with some of the changes over 2.0...will take some getting used to) Crop. Layer adjustments for levels, brightness/contrast, hue/saturation. USM. Resize. USM.

yes and no! :P Lets say.. Flower Power!! yes!! but the picture... no :(

Amazingly enough you are the only one using the Flower Power concept.. I had in mind to do something in that way too.

but the picture is kind of irritating my "not" sensible eyes... those lines in the stuff is killing me.

(2 points for using the FlowerPower) ;)

This photo came out very good, but I think this is the 60s not the 70s.
