Soft and Gentle

I treated myself to Craft Artist 2 Professional yesterday and seem to have 'lost' 24 hours! I loved CAP1 and when I saw how much more CAP2 can do, I couldn't resist. There is so much to learn that I've spent hours trying things out and have still barely scratched the surface I suspect - that's brilliant though, because it will grow with me as I learn. This is my first creation done with it and I'm loving the muted shades. I've done a lot of colour changing and such like so hardly anything has escaped! The only things that remain exactly the same are the bp and the pearls! What I've used:

  • White mount, torn edged 'handmade' paper and the pearls are from Imperial Purple. The ribbon is from the Eggstravaganza kit and the leaves are from Pretty in Pink. (All from Crafty Ann's)
  • Bow from Aged Wedding (from Miriam)
  • The flowers and birdcage are from the Dayydream kit which comes as part of CAP2
  • Backing Paper from Beaches (& CAP2 from Daisy Trail)
I'm entering my creation into these challenges:
Thank you for dropping by today.
