Trying out Topaz Studio which now includes some of the new Topaz AI tools as well as much more flexible application of the more painterly tools (brushes, textures, masks, layers) even within PS. This is a ham handed quick test of it, but it seems promising.

The color palette works very well Minnie. Can't go wrong with butterfly & flowers.

One fun thing I have started with is to print onto canvas then put a layer of Mod Podge or similar over the top with a flat sponge brush. Next comes the really fun part. Where you have details in the print. Mix the Podge with gloss varnish and with a paint brush, brush over the details to give it depth. The varnish will make the Podge dry "very" quickly, so you can build up your height to where you want it.
I'm using the Matte Podge
Have fun...
