PTU- Devilish Tag & Snags

*Click for bigger

I was feeling a bit ambitious when making this tag,
so I made some extras to go with it.
Those can be found at the end of this tutorial.;)

I am not using a tube for this tutorial, 
but a lovely pic of Ville Valo from the band HIM.
The image is © David Roemer.

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: I'm using an awesome kit called Devilish from AmyMarie.
You can find this kit in the ART store.

Tube: I'm using a photograph of Ville Valo from David Roemer.
If using licensed artwork, Do NOT use any artwork 
unless you have a license to do so & have purchased your tube.

Mask: of choice

Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy Impact- Perspective Shadow (optional)
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow 

Font: Aquarelle

Drop shadow: 2 4 50 5, black.
Save your progress often.;)

Let's do this! =)

Open a new canvas 650 X 650 px.
Copy & paste the mask. 
Apply your mask of choice (to give it more shape).
Merge group & resize about 115%.

Next copy & paste frame 1. Resize 70%. Rotate 45 right.
With your magic wand, click inside the frame like shown:
Modify & expand by 2. Now, on your mask layer, hit delete.
Select none.

Click inside the main part of the frame.
Modify- expand by 2. Invert.
Copy & paste paper 3. Resize 60%.
Hit delete & Keep selected.
Add your image or tube & resize as needed.
Hit delete & select none.

On your tube, apply Xero- Radiance to settings 
that look best for you. Since I'm using a photo, the settings I used 
will be too light for a tube.;)
Add your drop shadow to the tube.

Now we'll add some elements.
For each one I added, I sharpened & added a drop shadow to, 
unless specified otherwise.

deadleaves- 63%. Rotate 10 left. 
Duplicate. Mirror & flip.

wingedheart- 60%
e4- 27%. Rotate 8 left.
key- 30%. Rotate 80 right.
rose2- 50%. Rotate 125 right. Duplicate.
rose3- 50%. Rotate 125 right.
Use your eraser to remove any excess stems 
that show below the winged heart.

devilbird- 40%. Use E.C Impact- Perspective Shadow 
at these settings:
or you can use these settings for a drop shadow: 
8 2 70 10

Add any other elements if you prefer.

Now add your proper copyrights & watermarks.

Now add your name. Add your gradient glow:
Now add your drop shadow.

Finally, merge visible & save as a PNG & enjoy. =)

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
I'd love to see any of your results.

Now, for the extras. 
Click each one for bigger to save:

Hope you enjoy the snags. =)
