New Photoshop Brushes set: Christmas Photo Masks (by bsilvia) and a Competition

Christmas is coming and we just can’t have enough of these little helpers which we need to make creative Christmas graphics. In this post, my dear GBG-ers, and visitors, I present you a brand new

Photoshop brushes set + transparent PNG files

Christmas Photo Masks

Christmas Photo Masks

As you probably guessed, the image above (yes, that’s Mirta:)) was made with this set. So, if you’re interested in making similar effects – keep on reading.

Christmas Photo Masks set contains 16 brushes:

– 4 brushes in two sizes (total of 8 brushes) and
– 4 inverted (black-white inversion) in two sizes (total of 8 brushes).

So there are 16 free Photoshop brushes in this set.

Also, down below you will find the download link to 4 PNG files in 3600×3600 pixels size at 300dpi. Perfect for printing in any format!

But, before just heading over to download links bear with me just a second more:

I used Christmas Photo Masks Photoshop Brushes to make a cover for our Graphics-Illustrations.Com Christmas Album.

“What album? How will be making this album?” I hear you say.
“Well – you!”

Because, I thought, this is the perfect time , to make a little

  3. Great Idea!!! I am working on my Holiday cards right now for my Etsy shop, and I have already made a couple using your brushes!!

    I will be submitting at least three 🙂

    Thanks for your wonderful brushes!!!

  4. Hi silvia

    Im new to PS CS3. Is there any written directions on how to make the cards using your brushes.

  5. Hi,

    First, I would like to thank you for all the wonderful brushes you give away so freely. I am on an extremely tight budget and this is one of the greatest gifts I can get. Again, thank you.

    I do have a question on the .png photo masks. I use PSE 7 and Windows Vista. I only know how to clip the mask by hovering between layers while holding down the ‘alt’ key or by hitting control g. Neither of these work for me. Can/Will you give me any tips on how to get the picture to conform to the shape? Thanks so much.

    Denise

    1. Denise,
      Sorry for the very late reply. In my last blog post there is a video tutorial on how to use png files as photo masks in Photoshop Elements. I hope this helps.
