I know you gals are super talented because I have been enjoying your work all these months, but you have all outdone yourselves with this challenge. The artistry is beyond digi-scrapping - it's no less art than a painter or sculptor. I cannot believe what I have seen in this challenge.

Amazing - just amazing - how this technique lends itself to creating such art.

Congratulations to all of you. Fantastic, just fantastic.

I just had to do another of these ... Cash is adorable in this photo ... sitting on the hardwood floor with all this snow on his face. I took the snow and added a snow style, created layers of his fur and turned them to brown tones to bring out his beautiful coat and added a style to his eyes as well.

i igv eup - not even getting anything close - even tried your photo of girl with cmaera and it all came out awful.

the wand either selects hardly anythng or way too much. so used quick section tool instead with same awful results. the section tool is not the problem . i mus t be missing something in the instructions.
