Still Life Effects

I was playing around with some photographs (below) that I took at my painting class to see if I could find one that I wanted to oil paint when I decided to put one into Photobucket (it's free) and play around with it. I put it on the cartoon effect them put it over into Photoshop and changed the colors and got rid of the background and this is the final image. I also used a script digital stamp for the background which actually --I probably could have left that out. To get this effect I just put the image into the Edit mode in Photobucket and clicked the Cartoon button. Not all work so well but I think the more simple the shape the better it does.
