Start with a simple photo in Photoshop. An object with a fairly plain back ground works well. In this example I actually cropped out the image and put it on a transparent background (which shows up here as white).
The steps are fairly basic.
Start with your image.
Create a white background. I used the shape tool and covered the image, then switched the order of the layers so the white image was the base.
In the palette click on the top layer and duplicate that layer. Layer>Duplicate Layer
Now click on the top layer (layer 1 copy in this case) and hit Image>Adjustments>Desaturate
Now duplicate the desaturated layer .
On the copy 2 hit Images>Adjustments>Invert
Next hit color dodge on the palette
Now the cool part.
Set the Blur Radius to between 1.4 and 1.7
and TA DA!
Print and color! Maybe you can even color that smirk off her face!
