Flower Friday: Tulip

Inspired by blipper rainie's gorgeous flower photo on a textured background today, I thought I'd have a go at this sort of technique myself. It's the first time I've tried it in earnest and I'm not entirely happy with the result: maybe I should have chosen a different flower and/or a different background! However I was keen to blip a tulip in the garden as they're only going to last another 2-3 days. I tried a yellow one first but preferred the effect with this red one.

Any comments/hints on how I could have done it better will be gratefully received. I tried reducing the opacity of the Photoshop layer with the flower on it, to allow the texture to show through the petals more, but it looked too dull then.

Thanks to Bikerbear as always for hosting FF.
