Vintage Flavour Pop Art Wrapping Paper

So happy to have sold a roll of wrapping paper! I really enjoyed creating the graphic of the rose that I used on this wrapping paper, tiled across it. I had a real weird photo of a rose, in very odd light, which I ended up working with and creating a vintage looking photo in sepia from. I then tried seeing if I could get a graphic of the rose itself, and did, after a few tries with different filters. I had to clean up the lines and textures a bit manually, removing and adding, till I liked the outline parts in the rose which are black. I then made a template where I can change the colours in the rose and in the background. I ended up with some really neat sort of vintage 50s or 60s pop art looking images of a rose. I thought it may make for some really cool wrapping paper and I guess someone liked it too :-)

This is the wrapping paper
