Vintage Birds No. 5 Digital Illustrations

Vintage birds on flowering branches illustrations from Victorian trade cards.

I like to use these illustrations in blended stacked layers. This method won't work on dark or brightly colored backgrounds, but it works well in gently colored and textured backgrounds.

  • Drag the illustration onto your background file.
  • Duplicate the bird layer.
  • Add a layer mask to that layer and fill it with black.
  • On the bird layer underneath, set the blend mode to multiply.
  • On the top bird layer, use a soft brush in white and gently reveal parts of it, avoiding any white areas.
