The Challenge

How creative can you get using a “stock” image as a texture? Download this image and create something really special with it. There is a catch….(see additional information. The stock image is not the foundation of your image; it is used to create texture on your own photo)

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for the most creative use of the “stock” image.

Rewards & Prizes

The world, fame, fortune, all that your heart desires…well, you know… ;p

Additional Information

The catch is that you must tell us how you used it in this forum Did you make a brush with it, how did you layer it, did you make a pattern with it – you get the idea.
