...some printing on patterned paper...
and a solid image can become
or simply one to colour in. :o)
...make solid Stampin' Up digital images into Outline images
...convert Stampin' Up digital image PNGs into colour (using Photoshop)
If you've been checking out the Stampin Up salebration catalogue,
(or it's Mommy the solid image version)...
how it comes in the saleabration digital freebie
(along with digi files of all the sets in the SAB catty)
and how you can do LOTs of thing with all that stuff...
Little note: I don't sell S.U. and this obviously isn't a finished card, but since saleabration only goes until the 31st of March, I thought I'd post this digital tutorial right away--in case it might help some people decide whether they want that digital image kit with all the images in the Salebration catty or not.
into Outline images
This tutorial uses the flourish from
the digital version of the Bliss set:
Step 2) Select Stylize then choose Find Edges:
it doesn't always work with every image out there).
Step 3) If you want to make your image darker or lighter,
you can alter the brightness or contrast.
Click the Image tab, then select Adjustments and choose Brightness/Contrast:
Then slide the scale to where you would like it.
I made the lines darker here by reducing the brightness:
and make a patterned paper with it
(There's a tutorial for how to do that in this older post of mine).
Here's one patterned digital paper I made:
It made a grey pattern that takes very little ink to print & is nice and soft...
You can also change the size of the brush (smaller or larger):
However, these S.U. images seem to require converting before they will
make coloured patterns (or let you change the colours of them at all).
Here's one way to do that...
(again using Photoshop):
Step 1) Open your file in Photoshop & choose the Edit tab
then choose Convert to Profile:
I wasn't exactly sure which one to use, but
ColorMatch RGB worked just dandy...
...click okay to select the color profile:
if you go up to the Image tab, then choose Adjustments
and select Hue/Saturation you can lighten the image
the image less saturated or lighter:
You could print the image gray, if that tickles your fancy or...
Go up to the Image tab again and select Adjustments, then chose Colour Balance:
and change the colours! :o)
And this may be stating the obvious, but you
could colour the outline in the same way as I coloured this
solid version of the flourish.
If you want to use a photoshop brush in colour,
simply convert it to colour before you make it.
P.S. No photoshop? Here's another method of recolouring
P.P.S. Gimp is a great free/open source alternative to Photoshop (I use Photoshop since I have it I find it easy to try & fuddle my way through.) ;o)
