Botanical Illustrations with Typography

For my first attempt, I kept the masking quite simple and tried creating a card in four different colours using HSL adjustments and Gradient Maps.  I like the patterned background and am going to try this again with a more complex background which will allow for more masking.

I then tried it using just one main image.  I think this has worked quite well, but I found it more difficult to do colour adjustments to create different versions, I think because the original image had more colours that in my first attempt and any adjustments I tried never looked quite right.
