Today's challenge is to pick a fat font and add a texture to it - like this.

In PS that's done in the layer styles palette under bevel and emboss/texture. Change the pattern to get the different effects.

Hopefully it'll be similar in PSP and Gimp.

Have fun! :)

My font is laser bellbottom and I have no idea where I got the texture but it looked cool with the font, LOL.

Very wintery...even if you don't live where things really look like that ;-)

I didn't read your whole post and did the first one using a pattern overlay that was a texture.

They both look great, Lindy. :)

Have you ever tried the filter/render/clouds to make ribbons? If you have your foreground and background colours the same but slightly different in shade, it gives an interesting effect - almost like light shining off a ribbon. Then if you use the stroke in the edit menu to put a slightly darker edge on, it looks fairly realistic.

Anyway, that's totally irrelevant to this challenge - it was you talking about ribbons that side-tracked me! :D
