It is not easy to choose a suitable present for the loved ones even when you know their tastes. A good present should be individual and original. What can be better than a hand-made greeting?!
Follow the instructions below to create a postcard.
First we should choose suitable images. Let’s take this photo.
We have found a cool image with two expressive-looking cats from “Big Fat Cat Book” of Ronald Searle.
These lovely cats remind us of our sweet couple!
Let’s begin our work:
I. Image Preparation:
Quit the Quick Mask mode. Press the button .
Erase the black border and the inscription:
Select the Chameleon Brush tool. Set the source area. For this purpose, keeping the Alt (Option on Mac) pressed, left-click on the area that we are going to clone. Deactivate the check box Aligned and adjust the size of the brush.
You can choose other source areas for better cloning.
Apply the result and close the plugin window.
II. Drawing Effect:
Use these values of the parameters: Watercolor = 1, Charcoal = 0, Coloration = 10 at the Effects group. At the Strokes group set Stroke Thickness = 7. We won’t change other parameters.
Press to see the result and to apply the effect.
Here is our final result:
You can frame this image to give it the final touch. You can draw a frame yourself, but it is better to use AKVIS ArtSuite.
