Input 243
Output 243

Input 210
Output 209

6. Photo Filter

You can stop here or...

7. Group Layers

Group layers 2 (curves) and 3 (2 color fill). Set the Opacity of the group to 60% or however you'll like it.

Now that I think of it maybe it should be 80%. Just play with it til you'll find what you like :)

Anyways! 
Ta Dah :D That's it. 

If you have any compliment, complains, requests, and other stuff just leave a comment :)
