Big ask that my short term memory is not what it used to be, err what was the question again?

I was trying at first for a water colour thing, so duped and smoothed noise reduction and blur brush. Duped again and reselected the first dupe and did an outline on it with either Smart blur (edges only) or Redfields++ Can't recall, prob Redfields++)

Then changed top layer blend mode to colour, this did not look any good to me so duped it and Redfielded it again this time as Bas relief and blend mode to Overlay.

There was colour tweaks as well plus a black layer faded and masked with an
elliptical gradient to desat the edges - a vignette. There was at least one other bas relief layer as well the emphasize the edges more, and an overlaid texture layer.

Thats a good portion of the work flow there was more but I didn't make notes, as usual!!!

Really glad you liked it.

Peter

Re: Spring Flowers
