This actually was taken this year…before we took the tree down, cuz we were a bit late at that. This is the newest ornament I bought this year. Yeah, we have a sense of humor about everything, including Christmas. We found the Mr. Hankey Christmas Ornament at our Barnes & Noble just before it closed for good (economy). The only reason I’m using this odd little tidbit for the challenge is because it gave me a good example to play with my other new toy, Topaz Star Effects, which I just bought the other day.
Here is the final result, and below, the original image. I love Topaz plug-ins. They let me fake all the skills I don’t have time or motivation to learn in order to manipulate photos properly using Photoshop Elements. 😉
