RECREATING POSTAL HISTORY

Tutorial - the Cancel / Strike (3)

The country name, reason for the cancel & years were done in 'Kremlin Minister' available elsewhere on this site.


The dates were a little boring,

 so we drew a ribbon similar to this one on a separate canvas & imported it in, resized & rotated to get the effect we were looking for. We distorted the text to fit. Warp Text/Flag.

The day of issue was added.

The ribbon layer was duplicated. The original layer was overlaid with black and moved 3 px. down, 2 to the right, to create a shadow. Merge all layers except the white background.
