New Home Card


#1

I needed a card for someone who just bought their first home. Took a photo of the house, fiddled with it in Photoshop, laser engraved and cut from Canson Watercolor board, and water colored the piece. #whatmadethis #glowforge

Fantastic! I’ve been wanting to experiment with watercolor paper… Just another inspiring splinter in my brain! THANK YOU!

There’s an excellent tutorial on making a line drawing from a photo in the Lynda.com library: https://www.lynda.com/Photoshop-tutorials/Using-Find-Edges-filter-create-line-drawing/115429/134542-4.html

You need to be a member of Lynda.com, but many libraries give their patrons access. That’s how we use it.

I would just add to the tutorial that the drawing should be converted to greyscale if you plan to hand-color it. And I also added some pretty extreme Curves adjustments to get the contrast to my liking.

This is a frame-worthy card if I’ve ever seen one! The textures and colors are wonderful.
