This image was done using layers and several filters/techniques. Photoshop is full of great tools. You should really have fun learning it...I know that I have! :)

Not that any of your tips helped, because you didn't give me any. But I figured out how to do the color changing WITHOUT layers... good luck and congrats on your win.
