Took a master class from Cassel a week or so ago about extractions. I had done a lot of them as a graphic artist for a newspaper, but it has been years now and I had used photoshop at work, not paintshop pro. In this technique, I followed her directions for making a mask from an RBG channel. As you can see from the before image (above) to the after image (below), it worked really well. Then using a paper from "Beaches N Cream" by Kristmess and I piece of word art, designer unknown, I made my own personal postcard.
