I openend the b/w sketch in PSE Editor, and opened a Brightness/contrast adjustment layer above the Background layer.  Set the contrast slider all the way to the right, and the brightness slider all the way to the left.

Consider creating this project at a higher resolution. For printing, it is desirable to have the resolution in the 240-300px/in range. Yours=72px/in.
