I love the look of ribbons with the little V cutout at the end. I’ve been using a digital version of that myself for a while; in my old banner for Catie’s Blue, and here on the blog.
I love them so much that I turned the exact graphics I use myself into digital Photoshop brushes so that you can use them, too.
There are 4 brushes with two styles (a shallow V and a deeper V) and in two widths (a thick and a thin for both styles). They are amazingly versatile! I like putting them on their own layer in Photoshop so that I can position it anywhere I want to; they’re also great as a clipping mask shape, too.
The brushes are also extra-large, almost as big as a Photoshop brush can be, so that they’ll work with bigger projects. You can easily resize them on the options bar, or by hitting the bracket keys on your keyboard (hit [ to decrease, ] to increase the size).
To use them, you’ll need:
