Merry Christmas, color version.

In Photoshop:


* Cropped image.

* Cut out Charlie.

* Edited background out a bit by clone stamping.

* Repositioned Charlie & added angel wings.

* Used a Milk & Honey action.

* Added texture.

* Increased canvas size so that I could place a texture in the background as a border.

* Brought in bells.

* Typed "Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings," made several duplicates and changed the size/opacity of the writing, placed the copies underneath image layer (and above background texture layer) all over the canvas.

* Typed Merry Christmas 2011.

* Brought in a another texture to use as a shading border around center image.

* Masked out border texture a bit in the bells.

* Flattened image & done!


** angel wings imported from "Deviant Art." Credited to** There are so many great, free pieces of art that can be used in your editing found in Deviant Art. You just have to credit the artist! : )
