Default *closed* NBK's Black & White with a Splash Challenge 08/22 - 08/28

Welcome to my very first challenge for NBK Designs. I wanted to offer something different for this challenge or something that I haven't seen in the forum since my introduction to scrapping almost two years ago. This challenge is called Black & White with a splash of color.

I know of at least three ways to do this in Photoshop or Elements.

1. You could duplicate your colored image, add a Black & White adjustment layer and use the mask supplied with the adjustment layer to reveal any part of the colored image.
2. Use the Foreground to Transparent Gradient tool to get a smooth blending from Black & White to color on the Black & White layer mask.
3. Start with a Black & White image and paint in some color on a new layer using a "Color" blend mode.

I would love to see if you can demonstrate any other method that is a favorite of yours to produce that "Splash of Color".

Take a look at the examples I have provided below for some inspiration

Foreground to Transparent Gradient

Here's one from Marie-Clair useing the Sometimes collection : pagedivider ... many magiclights, sparkles, brushs , WA
