[Gimp-user] Help with colouring book stamp type images

Hi there again

I want to make colouring book pictures for my students from photographs of themselves (want to see kids get 
excited about something - give them a picture of themselves to colour in).  Right now I am using the cartoon 
filter, desaturating the image and then painstakingly selecting by colour, each greyscaled set of pixels and 
then cutting them so that in effect, the image becomes a traced black and white image.  I am wondering if 
there is an easier way to do this - I have tried using the threshold and levels filters - but I find that it 
makes the image too pop-arty, like those Che Guevara type T-shirt graphics.  Ideally I want to literally make 
the image look like colouring book picture or a stamp. Is there an easier way to do that without having to 
pick and delete the greyscaled parts of the image? Any help would be appreciated.
