Last Day to Save 20% on Debonair

Tomorrow is the last day to save 20% on our newest photographer's toolkit release, Debonair. So, you'd better hurry on over to the photoDUDS store and check it out because it's really awesome!
Last night, I received an e-mail from photoDUDS user, Diane Munsun telling me how much she loved the new Debonair set. Attached to the e-mail was her first creation with the new product. I absolutely loved it so I thought I'd share! So creative and what great use of the Debonair elements in the kit! Thanks Diane for sharing.
It's always so interesting to me to see how others are using the elements from the sets...and that's what I love about the product---it's NOT a template so everybody's creations look so different!

Debonair- How to use Blending modes

I have been playing around a little with our upcoming Photographer's Toolkit Release--Debonair. I wanted to share an image I created by simply using 2 of the photo edges and blending modes. The photo edges begin as as a png...they are generally shades of black but when you lay them onto of your images or papers you can change the blending modes to create new possibilities. Here are some images so you can see the image in progress. In this image I used two of the photo edges in the Debonair is set to soft light blending mode and one is set to overlay mode.

Here is what the png edge looked like when I opened it.
