2009 Christmas card

My Christmas cards for this year were a hybrid of digital and traditional techniques.  I used a photo my. brother-in-law took of me, Dale, and Katelin. I work in PSE7 on a Dell laptop. First I converted the photo to B&W then selected the santa hats and recolored them. I added Christmas brushes I purchased from House of 3 changing the color to white. I finished it off with adding "Merry Christmas" using a font called Beyond Wonderland. I got the color of the font by selecting the red from the santa hats. I didn't take any photos of the cards I sent out. Each one was a little different .
