    And why do it in photoshop? Scaling up in photoshop is a no go. Use Illustrator

    I like where it's going, but it needs some more work before taking it into Illy. The positive and negative space don't balance, and like PD mentioned, the thin lines are out of place. Get yourself some...

    I'm going to point out here that you are making a label for a burgundy bottle. I'm assuming there is going to be burgundy inside it and not just the shape of the bottle being used for something like shampoo....

  • Illy borders

    So i was using some of the preloaded borders in illy but ran across a problem. When i apply the border and then try to fill the circle...the fill overlaps under the wont allow me to align the border to the outside. how do i get around this. i tried dragging the border onto the art board and live painting it...make the transarent parts white....but then returning it to the border palette and applying it poses a someone in the whole process it adds a white spacing...making a break in the border. any idea on how to get around this. many thanks!

    did you try putting a colored box behind the box with the border?

      no. but i dont think that will do it. gonna try after this posting. take a look at the pic i have attached. this is an illy border. i moved the bottom line up near the top to show what i think the problem is. see how the bottom line is slightly bigger than the top. when i apply the border straight from illy no prob. just when i edited i have problems. well try the white background...but am not sure if i should draw the end of it it the longer line or shorter.

        If I am understanding your issue (and I may not be...)
        Another option is to take the entire border (without fill) and expand it, then use the live paint bucket to fill the interior.

          Yeah, that's what I was going to suggest, more or less.
