Felt is no longer just for kids - now it's for designers too!
This massive pack of felt styles and stitch effects is the first and only one available for Photoshop on Creative Market and, at only $15, represents tremendous value. No longer will you have to spend hours working to achieve that perfect look, with the help of the Artifex Forge this is now all only a few clicks away!
This pack is hugely versatile and can be used to enhance any of your design themes - Christmas, Valentines, arts & crafts, nursery and many, many more! Plus, with its eye-catching and realistic hand-crafted finish, it'll make any design stand out and just look plain awesome.
But don't just take my word for it; here's what Kathleen Towner from Towner Graphics said about it:
"The felt effects from Artifex Forge are great! The blur action adds the final touch of realism. Stitching” by drawing was just too much fun. The instructions are clear and easy. Going from a vector drawing to a final image that looked like real felt was like magic.”

The pack contains all of these fantastic components:
32 Felt Layer Styles:
These work with one easy click! You can apply them to text as well as bitmap and vector shapes. They can be used for backgrounds too. The shadows, gradients and depth can be adjusted individually after application. They are supplied in 32 colors. To create your own colors, apply an adjustment layer.
In addition to the styles I've included an optional blur action. You can use this to give an even more realistic edge to your felt object. This comes with three levels of blur.
This combines a set of 10 stitch brushes and a layer style, which adds the realistic texture and depth. To use, simply apply the style to a layer, select a brush, adjust it's size and draw! You can change the color, depth and shadowing after application. Supplying the stitch effect this way makes it super-flexible for the user.
These can be seen in action in the styles but I've also supplied them separately so you can use them to fill areas independently. They are 2000 x 2000 pixels in size and I've also included a download link to a larger 4000 x 4000 pixel set. You'll find this link included in the easy-to-follow instruction guide.
Bonus High Resolution Felt Texture:
A 5472 x 3647 pixel piece of felt texture in Tiff format. This offers a great background for you to start your design.
Pages one, two, three and four of the previews are included.
A very thorough guide on how to load, apply and then edit the effects is supplied.
Please note! This is compatible with Photoshop CS5, CS6 and CC only.
