I really did a mix of techniques. A mixture of bluring and blending to get the washy look then I filled a layer with pink and black masked it. Then painted on in white where I wanted the colour to go (at varying opacities) Then added a bit of texture.
Thats all there was to it really.

Just fiddling with some blends.

Impressionist on the background; a little play on glow for the flowers.

Nancy, you have that water color look down pat. :-)

I coppied the red channel and adjusted levels on that to create a mask and applied the mask to a copy of the background photo. Painted white on the mask to bring up the flower colors. Did a soft drop shadow on the flower layer.

Added splotchy background and border.
