    Ha! I was just thinking about your original video of your husband smoking a cigar last night. I’ve been meaning to watch it again! Thanks, Nicole!

    P.S. I love it when you’re on TWIP! Tell Frederick to have you on more often.

    P.S.S. I had issues with your CAPTCHA. It displayed FEN3, but the audio said M47U.

    I use a similar technique where I just duplicate a layer and switch to overlay. Then I use a layer mask to create a vignette with the gradient tool.

    This has an interesting subtlety to it.
