Shimelle Laine released a new digital kit this week, You Are Amazing. This kit contains a super trendy woodgrain alphabet along with a digital scrapbooking page template, and it is very reasonably priced at only $2.
For this card I sized and printed the letters at 2" and cut them out. I used my new Tim Holtz Texturz Burlap embossing folder, patterned paper from Basic Grey Origins, and a little twine from alittlescrappy.etsy.com.
Now I'm not sure if everyone knows how to recolor digital images so I'll give a quick step out. I use Photoshop Elements 6.
My "screenshots" are me actually using my camera and taking a picture of my computer, thats why you see the glare. To get to the stage in the above photo I opened up the letter A in Elements, then from the toolbar click Enhance>Adjust Color>Adjust Hue/Saturation.
The Hue slider changes the color. As you can see I slid it all the way to the left until I found the color brown. The Saturation slider makes the color get deeper. I didn't do too much at all with the saturation. Then I slid the Lightness slider to the left to get the shade of brown a little darker. Now you have a manly brown instead of a trendy turquoise.
Thanks for stopping by!
