This is a flower image shot using the 'shooting through' technique - placing color from other flowers right up against the lens and shooting with a wide open aperture through that diffusion of color with the main subject in focus. I then mirrored this in Photoshop, almost giving the appearance of a flower in a vase. No texture used here, but it does look like a watercolor quilt fabric!
