Playing with duplication and effects, also imported a photo of my cat Tucker and photo enhanced all with AR3Pro.
Another fun project this evening. Hope all is well with everyone.:)

Just love your choice of colors, textures and imaginative concept of
integrating two applications. Very creative, the warm tonal shades
are quite appealing and Tucker is very well presented in this charming
piece. :)

Just love those leaves!

Very lively composition, it is a delight!:)

MaryAnn, Thanks so much. Peter's tutorial on duplication and changing the effects just opened a door to such fun with this software for me. The leaves I cheated with I am afraid...I used nature stamps with them. I used watercolor brush with no liquid for the stems because it leaves such a nice outline.:)

Cesare, Thank you so very much!:)

Paul, Thanks, so nice to see you again!:)

Al, Thanks so much-I am so happy that you like it.:)

Jasmine, Thanks very much!:)

Dear Pat and AT, Thanks so much dear ladies. You know, I had it on my desktop, but it was a bit on the bold side for me, and I usually love bold colors. I am definitely going to try another though with my dear Tuck included. He is my big baby.;):)

Thank you Javier. I would never had thought of this without reading Peter's tutorial on his special effects. Since then I have had so much fun duplicating stems and enhancing the colors.:)

Dear Byron, I had forgotten about this one. Thank you dear mate! I appreciate your kind words.

Hi Steve, thank you very much. This software absolutely floors me with it's possibilities. From uploading photographs and painting them and adding one's own background and merging the two. I mean truly so much fun.

Haha, Thanks Gary, I appreciate that. Yeah, Tucker is my baby, a dear member of our family.

Hi Netta, So happy that you liked it, many thanks!

Hi Neal, goodness gracious! I posted the same time as you did again! Thanks so much, and you are right, I am sure he was just about to pounce on something.:D
