It’s been a while since I created a new design so I thought I would share how I created this fun dalmatian greeting card with you.
I love images that are black and white with a little splash of colour and have created a few of them in the past myself.
As soon as I saw the original photo of this dalmatian with it’s tongue out I just knew I wanted to make the whole image black and white except the tongue.
Now there are a few ways in which you can do this, but I’m just going to show you the super easy way and all you need is photoshop!
Here is the original photo –
As you can see this dalmatian is actually more brown, but is on a black background. So first I opened it up on photoshop, next I created a duplicate image.
I simply when to the Enhance menu and selected convert to black and white (making sure I was on the duplicate image). There are a lot of other ways to do it, but I’m all for easy (and there weren’t a lot of fiddly parts to the photograph).
Next I simply selected the eraser and used it on the tongue (again making sure I was on the duplicate image) – I made the image bigger and adjusted the size of the brush to keep the lines straight.
It really was that simple and here is the result –
Have you ever created a black and white with a splash of color design before? If not then why not have a bit of fun and try it on some of your photographs.
