PTU- Goth Beauty

*Click for bigger.

This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind. 
Any similarity to any other tutorial(s) is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of PSP
and was written using PSP XI, tho' any version should work.

Supplies Needed: 
Scrapkit: Black Ice by Tasha's Playground
This is a beautiful PTU kit, you can find here.
Tube: I'm using the awesome artwork of Screaming Demons, 
named Goff, which you can buy at SATC.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.
Filters: Xero- SoftMood
Xero- Porcelain
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow 
Font: Absinthe FT Flourish

Let's do this! =)

Next, copy & paste the star scatter.

change the colour to #830009:
Add a drop shadow & drag this layer to just above 
your white background in the layers palette.

With your frame layer active, copy & paste the first ribbon. Resize 80%.
Mirror & sharpen. Place this at the top of your frame.

Duplicate the ribbon, mirror & flip.

Place him at the top of the frame, over on the right side.

On the heart string, use your lasso tool to select one of the outside hanging hearts.
Resize it so it's about 200 pixels in length.
Copy & paste this onto your frame, over on the right.
Using the manual color correction, 
colour it at the same settings you used for the star scatter.

Next, copy & paste the spider. Rotate 10 right. 
Resize 27% & sharpen. Place him on top of the flowers 
& add a drop shadow.

Now, crop/ resize your tag to your own preferences.
Then, add your proper copyrights & watermarks.

Next add your name in a red colour.
Duplicate. On the top, apply a bevel:
Then on the bottom, add a gradient glow set at 3:
Then add some noise- Gaussian/ 70%/ Monochrome.

Finally, merge visible & save as a PNG & you're done.
