***You will use this effect through out this tutorial, so once you have your settings set, you should only have to click on Inner Bevel then click ok. (Yes I know I have the image of the tree element in this screen shot lol, I forgot to take the screen shot when I applied it to the Fence element lol)***
Now click Ok.

Now go to Adjust - click Sharpness - then click Sharpen
