3.To get black lines on a white background use shortcut Ctrl + I.
4. Click Layers from the Pallete Bin and from the drop-down blend mode select Soft Light.
5. From the Layers palette click into the original layer on bottom of the stack for editing. Select Filter>Pixelate>Crystallize and choose a Cell size of 20. To soften the edges select Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur, adding a 5-pixel Radius blur.
