A question in my inbox:
Can I change the color of your wordarts from black to another color?
An answer from me:
Hi dear, off course you can change the color of my wordarts. Black is the default color that give you freedom to re-color it. Below are some of my favorite methods in Photoshop:

Recolor with Paint Bucket Tools
Open your image.
1. Choose a foreground color.
2. Select the Paint Bucket tools.
3. To fill only pixels contiguous to the one you click, select Contiguous. (leave Contiguous unselected to fill all similar pixels in the image)
4. Click the part of the image you want to fill.
