Margaret:

Did you have to do anything else to t (anything major -- I'm sure you had to adjust colors and such.) It makes me feel like the very adventurous heroine in a children's book.

Colored edges... hmmm...

Yes, I did - I was just experimenting and did not keep good track. As far as I remember - first duplicated layer and used channel mixer and made a monochrome layer, then used the cutout filter on the merged down black and white layer. Then using Buzz Pro applied Edges Color to the colored layer. Dragged the edges layer above the Black and White layer and changed blending mode to Color Burn - that gave the red eye. Applied a gradient to the face with same red and added some grain.
How cool to be a heroine!

DropBear: That's how I SHOULD have done my makeup -- I didn't end up being a very scary witch.

And CathyH:
I LOVE the way my eye looks -- that is really lovely.
