This Sir Alf Ramsey Dahlia from my garden is one of my favorite Dahlias.
I photographed the flower in the studio and it looked a little lonely even against the textures, so I added in a vintage French overlay to balance the composition and add a bit of whimsey.
The main texture is: Amelie from Les Textures II - Blend Mode: Multiply, Opacity: 100%. I also duplicated the texture and set it to Blend Mode: Normal, Opacity: 100% and used a layer mask to cover up some of the flower's stem.
I then added the texture: La Danse from The Artiste Collection — Blend Mode: Multiply, Opacity: 36% to bring a bit of color to the texture.
