All of the textures and backgrounds in the previews were sampled from real pieces of wood, giving the designs a feel that is about as realistic as it gets. These effects are perfect for a variety of vintage themed projects, menus, cards, invites and loads more.
How it works –
There are two ways to use The Wood Carver:
Open one of the smart PSDs, click on a smart object layer (this will open into a new document window), paste your design into it and save.
Simply place text or an image onto one of the wooden background PSDs then apply one of the styles by clicking on a style icon. Very detailed instructions are included including how to expand the styles for greater editing potential. For example how to rotate the wood texture pattern and how to change it’s color.
So, what exactly is included?
Using real wood textures (carved by myself!) and in 12 varieties so you can apply the styles to text, bitmap and vector images with one click. The effects used in the styles can be easily scaled and edited after application.
