Digital Art using Vintage Image

I'm just starting to learn Photoshop and the first thing I've done is to remove the background from one of the vintage images I've already posted and overlayed her on a digitized background.  It's not much but it is a start and we all need to start somewhere.

My First Digital ATC (Artist Trading Card)

I started with this image and then digitally cropped and removed the background.
Once I had a transparent background for the Lady in Photoshop I was able to add her
to the digitally created background so I had my first digitally layered ATC.

I know I'll be getting hours of fun out of all my antique images regardless if I'm cutting them out the old fashion way or using them digitally as I learn to do more in Photoshop.

Grins and Giggles,


  1. Excellent job removing the background on your sweet lady. It's one of the trickiest actions to do well.

  2. Wendy - Thanks so much for the kudos. I know I'll make lots of mistakes in my Photoshop journey but that's half the fun of learning and then there is a big thrill when you finally get one right! Grins and Giggles, Evelyn
