PTU- Subtle Blush

* 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: I'm using an elegant kit from Tasha's Playground
named Breathe Me. You can find this at SATC or PFD.

Tube: I'm using the stunning artwork of Gennadiy Koufay.
You can find this tube at CDO.  
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Template: Temp. 185 from Kristin at Toxic Desirez
Look on her templates page. 
* Leave some love when snagging the temp. ;)

Filters: Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow 

Font: Riesling (Bold)

Drop shadow: 0 1 50 4, black.
Save your progress often.;)

Let's do this! =)

Open up the template. Duplicate it & close original. 
Delete the credit layer at the top.
Resize the temp. so it's 650 px. in width.

Working from the bottom layer of the template, up:

Top Rectangle - Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste paper3, resized 70%.
Hit delete & select none. Duplicate. Mirror & flip.
Crop to canvas. Add a drop shadow to each.
Delete Bottom Rectangle.

Top Square- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste paper2, resized 70%.
Hit delete & select none. Duplicate. Mirror & flip.
Crop to canvas. Add a drop shadow to each.
Delete Bottom Square.

Black Top Rectangle- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste paper1, resized 70%.
Hit delete & select none. Duplicate. Mirror & flip.
Crop to canvas. Drop shadow both.
Delete Black Bottom Rectangle

Circle- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste paper5, resized 70%.
Hit delete & select none. Crop to canvas.
Add a fat gradient glow in a pale pink:
Then add your drop shadow.

Rectangle- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste paper7. Hit delete. Select none.
Move this layer below your circle layer.

Next, copy & paste frame3.
With your magic wand, click inside the frame.
Modify- expand by 3. Invert.
Paste paper6, resized 70%. Hit delete & select none.
Duplicate this paper & set it to Multiply.
Duplicate again. Add a drop shadow to your frame.

Next add your tube. Resize 80%.
If you are using a coloured tube, desaturate it.
Add your drop shadow.

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

bow2- 65%
journal- 55%
pen- 55% Rotate 45 right.
hearts- 80%
branch- 70%. Duplicate & mirror.
flower2- 45%
cat- 50%
candle- 65%. Duplicate twice. No drop shadow.
bird2- 45% Drop shadow: 11 -4 40 10
ballet shoes- 55%. Desaturate.
rose- 80%

butterfly- 40%. Duplicate & resize 80%. 
Duplicate again & resize 80% again.
Rotate these & scatter them on the tag.
Use your manual color correction tool to change 
the white on each to #eccbce. Drop shadow for each: 
8 -8 50 4

sparkle2- Use the manual color correction to change 
the colour to the same as the butterflies.

Add any other elements, if you prefer at this time.

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

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

Merge visible, save as a PNG & enjoy. =)
