I originally sat down just to make a card front that I was planning to print but then needed to create an inside for the card with the additional words and by the time I was done I ended up with an animated e-card. It was an artistic process and I did not write down every setting and click used, so here are general directions and anything that might be out of the ordinary.
  1. Use blend tool with FG to BG (RGB) Gradient and pink color to create image background.
  2. Layout stamps on image. Use text tool to get Love because there is only one love brush and that font didn't go with the other brushes.
  3. Add a new layer.
  4. Use blend tool to fill background.
  5. Use the different size flower brushes in the set with a random brush opacity dynamic and a hand selected color to create the background.
  6. Place remaining brushes on top of background.
  7. Add third image layer and create image on it.
  8. Save as animated gif.
Instead of mailing, finished image can be emailed or posted on your blog or your favorite social networking site.
