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.
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
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.
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.
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.
