Tips – No line colouring with a digital image
Hello everyone! Does that picture look familiar? Well that’s because you already saw it a few days ago!!! I am back to give you a few tips on how I made my digi ready for no line colouring. It hit me right after I posted my card that I could have shared that, so let’s say it is better late than never lol! I used Microsoft Word to alter the light of my image, my software is in French but I hope you can understand with the following pictures.

The image I used is the super cute Fairy Twinkles.


First, I right clicked on my image and chose the symbol at the bottom (Format).


In the window that opened, I clicked on “Recolour” as shown in the red circle and then chose the 3rd symbol on the second line, and this is what I got…


The image on the left is the result of what I have just shown you, the one on the right is the original image with dark lines.

As you can see, the symbol I clicked on (3rd symbol 2nd line) automatically changed the light and contrast (to 70% and -70%). It is a setting I found and like. But it is possible not to use that symbol and play with the light setting yourself. To do so, once you have right clicked on your image and chosen “Format” as shown in Step 1, just play with the “light” arrow until you are satisified.

And here is the image coloured…
