I made this simple digital "cut out" and wanted to share it with you. This is a simple png image that can be opened in any editing program. It is perfect to use in all types of digital design; as you can see I used it in a header.
If you want to add a texture, drag your favorite texture on top of the cut out (the sample above is a bird because I was too lazy to make another screenshot, but it is the same idea) and then group it. Ctrl-T (free transform) the texture to fit your shape. You can also group a color fill layer to the shape.
I also like to add a drop-shadow to the shape layer. Save as a png file if you want the background transparent. If you just flatten and save as a jpg your background will be white.
