Sweet Couple: a Postcard from a Photo
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?!
We offer you to create an ideal greeting card - it is funny and exclusive. We used the program Adobe Photoshop with two plugins AKVIS Sketch and AKVIS MultiBrush.
Follow the instructions below to create a postcard.
First we should choose suitable images. Let’s take this photo.

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.
