This is a "digital collage". This deviation is creative digitally but an attempt was made to make it look like a collage; i.e., there's no blending or getting rid of ragged edges or white lines, and other things I would normally do when creating a traditional photo-manipulation.

Everything matches so well in this - it's fantastic. I think it's quite intersting the combination of flat textures like that with the '3d' model. It really makes her pop out from behind the flowers Great look.
oh wow dear this really looks like a card. i use to do real cutouts like this. i would cut out each flower and then bend the flower slightly and the glue it back on. it would make the card look 3-D. it was so fun doing it. but now i see it can be done the same way digitally. wonderful job dear. you did so well on the cutting and the edges blend very well. i see the shadows to make it look 3-D. wow this is just very nice dear. i love it
I use to make 3d cards too, years ago. I don't have the large space or the "found materials that are around the house" any longer, so I was very happy to find out that collages can also be created digitally. I'm starting to look for stuff and keep stuff I get (like tissue paper that came with my birthday flowers, and the flowers themselves) so that I can start scanning things to my computer.
