The original image has a white background. I added a soft overlay and a paper texture with the colors changed to match the flower, using Darken blending mode.

Hi, Anita, very nice peach colours and soft focus. I like how the petals twists like horns of Capra falconeri.

Almost like a fleeting shadow . . fascinating to see how much detail you can suppress in a search for the inner character !
