Copied image over the background image and ran Xero line art in mono sketch mode. Used Akvis chameleon to change the flowers to the colour of the background.

Paint engine to get the painted effect. Pasted the original again, masked out and painted back some of the colour.

Added a black border between flowers and background.

Christine -- I love the look of your image -- works very well !

Played in PShop 7 ---
Didn't keep track of all the iterations, but loved the colors and just went along for the ride -- but this is a combination of select Color Range, Polar Coordinates, embossing, stroking, layer blends - color, Luminosity, exclusion, etc. No, I could never do it again. But, sometimes, I just want to "play".

Christine, you know I love anything that is abstract!

I did PSP8 contours on one copy and did a negative on another one and merged them, then did a negative of that image. I like the quick and dirty results.

You've got to let your hair down sometime... I'm about to zip up the suitcases tomorrow to do just that and enjoy our 5th grandchild...! I'll miss "playing" for a while....for an entire month!

funky wet flowers

Some of these are terriffic! What a wonderful thing imagination is.

I can't resist a flower, especially the chance to make one abstracted in some manner.
Duped original layer and turned off background.
Posterized at 4.
Copied that layer three more times.
1st copy was turned into a pencil sketch, which turned out to have a lot of gray in it. I used the blending sliders to get rid of some of the gray. This blended into the layer below it a lot better.
2nd copy I used the solarize filter then hit image/adjustment/invert. In the final layered copy, the blending mode was overlay at 80%.
The next layer I used find edges with a blending mode of 25% on multiply.

I'm not particularly happy with some of the crazed lines; but I'm too tired to erase them tonight. I'm absolutely sure I will do this flower again. BEWARE you haven't seen the last of this flower. hehehe
