Beautiful! Did you take a rose and add the fence post's texture or did you actually shape the fence post? Either way, lovely results with nice detail! :)

to answer cafn8d's question - a photo of a real rose toned brown, then about a dozen pieces of the texture distorted (wave, shear, liquify), placed over the individual petals to match the curves, masked and set to overlay mode.
