  Thanks, Fawn!
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! :)

  Layers can be confusing. It took me a long time before attempting to learn them. Then I just learned by experimenting. Good luck!

  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.
