PTU- Bewitched

* 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 awesome PTU kit named 
Witchy Poo from Purple's Kreationz
You can find this kit at Scrap-A-Licious.
Tube: I'm using the artwork of Arthur Crowe.
This was available at PTE. However, there is a sexy 
alternative you can get at Arthur's store.;)
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Template: Temp 158 from Amy & Leah's Gimptastic Tuts
Find it on their blog here.

Mask: Halloween mask of choice 
from the Creative Misfits here.
Leave some love when downloading the temp. & masks ;)
Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow 

Font: Parseltongue
Drop shadow: 2 2 60 3, black.
Save your progress often.;)
Let's do this! =)
Open up a solid paper of choice from the kit.
Duplicate & close the original.
Apply mask of choice to your paper. Merge group.
Leave for now.
Now, open up the template. Duplicate it & close original. 
Delete the credit layer at the top.
Change the canvas size to 500 X 500.
Working from the bottom layer of the template, up:
Copy your masked paper & paste above the 
white background layer of the template. Resize about 90%.
10- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert. 
Delete this layer & paste P16, resized 80%.
Hit delete & select none. Crop to canvas. Drop shadow.
9- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert. 
Delete this layer & paste P2, resized 80%.
Hit delete & select none. 
Merge 7 down onto 8.
Then, select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste P18, resized 80%. 
Hit delete & select none. Crop to canvas. Drop shadow.
6- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste a solid colour paper 
of choice, resized 80%. Hit delete & select none. 
Move 3 down to above 5 in layers palette.
Then merge this layer down onto 5. 
Next, select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste P6, resized 80%.
Hit delete. Select none. 
Merge 2 down onto 4.
Then use your manual color correction to
change to #8660ab or colour of choice.
Then add some noise: Uniform/ Monochrome/ 50%.
Add your drop shadow.
1- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste P20.
Hit delete. Select none. Crop to canvas.
Now, add a fat gradient glow:
Then with your magic wand, select the glowed edges 
& add noise at the same settings. 
Select none & drop shadow.
Next add your tube. Resize as needed.
Position on the left of the tag.
Apply Xero- Radiance at these settings:
Add a drop shadow.

Customize your word art layers to your own preferences.
Next we'll add some elements.
For each one I added, I sharpened & added 
a drop shadow to, unless specified otherwise.
WINGEDSKULL- 50%. 
Move below tube in layers palette.
Drop shadow: 6 2 60 3, black.
SWIRLYTREE- 75%.
BONEYCAKE- 65%.
CAULDREN- 45%.
CATONSKULL- 45%.

TOXICPOTION- 35%
LIPS- 40%. Rotate 8 left.
SPARKLES2- Erase an excess you don't want.
Change the blend mode to Screen.
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.
Next add your name. Give it a gradient glow:
And a drop shadow.
Now, delete the white background. 
Merge visible & save as a PNG. 
I hope enjoy your new tag. =)
