Colouring tutorial #1 :)  
After the last Christmas icons post, I got a request on how to do the colouring I used on them. So here we go! Hope someone finds this useful.

Sooooo we start off with our base. Since I'm a total perfectionist I wanted it lighter, so I duplicated the base and set it to screen at 50%


Okay! Time to add in some colour/depth!


Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Selective Colour
Chuck in these settings into Selective Colour:

Cyan: -70
Yellow: +10

Cyan: -15
Magneta: +50
Yellow: +10
Black:+ 35

Cyan: -25

Magneta: +5
Yellow: -10

Black: +50

Now that we've added colour, we'll just add a bit of warmth.

Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation


And put in these settings:

Saturation: +20

Hmm, I wanted a bit more contrast. So I went toooooo

Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Brightness/Contrast


And chucked these settings in:

Contrast: +55

And we're done!!!
