Stellotape Removing

I am basically trying to restore some album art, and on the right hand side of the album art there is some "sticky" or cellotape

With a combination of level's and match color, I have been able to completely remove the tape, the problem is that the brown levels have darkened to a black/green. I have uploaded a picture highlighting the problem
As you can see although

The problem is that I can't figure out how to restore the blacks/greens to the browns as they are supposed to be (as shown in the red square). Would anyone be able to help me here?

Here is the .psd if anyone needs it ( Sorry I can't upload it due to the limit

Re: Stellotape Removing

You could use curves adjustment layers to match the colors, taking samples from the parts you like to do the matching to.

Re: Stellotape Removing

Sorry I am kind of new at using curves for adjustments, would you be able to upload the .acv curves file (or the .psd file if you used adjustment layers) that you used to get the result you just uploaded?

Thanks heaps
