Hi Everyone! Christine here to kick off Digi Tips Week! Each day we will share a different simple digital scrapbooking tip with you. The tips are simple and easy, and bite-sized (or is it byte-sized, ha) so that you can jump right in and try it! Whether you are a seasoned digital veteran or a newbie, you can pick up tips to add to your digital scrapbooking repertoire.
Today I'm going to show you a very simple way to color-in digital doodles. This tutorial will work in both Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. I'm using Kate Hadfield's Colour In Valentines as an example. You can use any digital line art or digital stamps/brushes.
Here’s the before. The card comes as a black and white line drawing or doodle.
And here’s after coloring using Photoshop.
The whole process just takes about 3-4 minutes. The Photoshop/PSE tools that I'm using in the tutorial are the Eyedropper Tool (to sample colors) and the Paint Bucket Tool (to fill in the colors between the lines). If you want to use the color palette instead of using the Eyedropper Tool to sample colors, you can just click on any color in the color palette you would like to use. Watch the video below.

I hope you get an idea of how easy it is to color in digital doodles to match the colors of your digital layout or to print out for your crafting! Stay tuned the rest of the week for more Digi Tips!
