    • You will need to digitize your design and then colour-in with the colour palette provided. Adobe photoshop, Adobe illustrator, Gimp, Corel PSP can be used. You can also import it to Inkscape, Serif drawplus or any vector software and reform your image using shapes or the pencil tool and then colour in using the colour palette provided.

      • To digitize, you can scan your image and then open it in the graphics program. Some people do use multiply-effect instead of the normal-effect to darken the image before using the magic wand tool to select and to digitize the image.
