I like old staff, shabby chic, grunge textures, vintage touch, scrapbooks etc., bref I'm a nostalgic lady.
So I created some grunge frames and Easter ones that I would like to share with you. It is fun to transform your colorful photo, make it looking old and put it in a grunge, vintage frame. The result: a kind of victorian photography.
If you have Photoshop, you can easy obtain a sepia effect editing the image. I used a Nicole Kidman image that I have desaturated it and played with color balance, levels and luminosity.
You can obtain the same sepia color in other way:
Go to Image/Mode and select gray scale.
Again Image/Mode and select Duotone.
You need to pick two different inks. Ink 1 will be EB8B23. Just click on the little color square and enter the number via the Color Picker.
You must name your Inks so name this one SEPIA 1 (or whatever you wish).
Repeat this for Ink 2.
You may find that the Custom Color box that appears is set to Pantone. Simply click on the Picker Button on the right side and you'll get your original color picker.
Enter 000000 for the black we want and SEPIA 2 for the name. Finish this step by clicking OK. Then go back to RGB mode now.
Choose Image, Mode,RGB Color.
Next you can choose Image, Adjustments, Hue/Saturation and play with the saturation levels to make the effect more subtle.Here are the frames in png format.
Easter is coming so i made a special card or frame. It is on transparent background, free and ready to use
