Well it was a long process to get it right...and I noticed a couple of 
mistakes after I
sent it.

First I used the lasso selection tool with the smart edge option.  Selected 
the main iris, once this was done right click and completed the selection.  
Copied the
selection and pasted as a new layer.  X'd off this layer in the layer 
palette then went
back to the main image.  Deleted the selection on this layer...then used the 
clone tool
to cover up any remaining purple edges.  Then went back to the flower only 
layer and
colorized it and then using the mover tool...moved it back into place in the 
main image.
Then I merged all layers once I was happy with it.  Once this was done I 
repeated the
process with the partial flower pieces at the bottom of the photo.

This probably took me about 45 minutes too.  This method can be done in PSP 
7 as well
as PSP 8, although I do think the lasso tool works better in version 8.


P.S.  hope you didn't mind us playing with your photo like this.
