    Stitches Text Effect
    In this tutorial you will learn how to create a Zombie Text effect that works great for Halloween flyer's, pamphlets and forum signatures. The steps to create this effect are relatively easy to accomplish with a little time and effort.

    Here is an example of the text effect that we will be creating with this tutorial:

    Page 1 of 1

    Step 1.)
    1.) Open an existing document in photoshop, or create a new one. I will be working with a 400x400 canvas.
    Fill the background with your desired color, l'll be using #6A6A6A for this tutorial.





    Step 2.)
    Press CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + N on your keyboard to create a new layer.

    Set your foreground color to: #392700

    Go ahead and get out the Text Tool () and select a nice looking font. Here l'm using a font called Accent SF, which you can download freely by clicking here.
    (Note: Free registration required)

    Here are the exact Text settings l've used:


    Type out your text near the center of the canvas as l have done here:






    Step 3.)
    Double click this layer, and apply the following blending options:
    Bevel & Emboss:
    Colors Used: Highlight Mode: #FFFFFF Shadow Mode: #421700


    Satin:
    Color used: #B58F3E


    Stroke:
    Color Used: #D0AD60


    Result:






    Step 4.)
    Press CTRL + J on your keyboard to duplicate this layer.

    Select the Burn Tool () and apply the following settings:


    Randomly brush around the text to create various little dots and squiggly lines as shown:








    Step 5.)
    Get out the Smudge Tool () and apply the following settings:


    Now Distort the bottom part of each letter using the smudge tool until you have something similar to what l have here:






    Step 6.)
    Press CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + N on your keyboard to create a new layer.

    Get out the Lasso Tool () and make a selection as l have done here:


    Fill this selection with #896A28 using the Paint Bucket Tool ().

    Double click this layer, and apply the following blending options:
    Bevel & Emboss:


    Color Overlay:
    Color used: #BD0000

    Result:






    Step 7.)
    Repeat step #6 several times to create many different "cuts" in each letter of your text:






    Step 8.)
    Press CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + N on your keyboard to create a new layer.

    Set your foreground color to black (#000000).

    Get out the Brush Tool () and set it up with a round soft 2 pixel brush as l have done here:


    Now draw lines across each of the "cuts" that we made in steps #6 and #7 to add the effect of stitches to each letter of our text:


    Here is how my text ended up, as you can see this is a very easy and fun effect to create a very scary looking text effect that works great on all sorts of Halloween related applications:


    Here's what l came up with after messing around with the text a little more, and adding some graphics to the background with a few effects:
