PTU- Santa's Favorite Naughty Girl

* 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 a PTU kit from Purple's Kreationz,
named Candy Christmas. You can find where to get 
your hands on this kit here on her blog.

Tube: I'm using the awesome artwork of Verymany.
You can find this & other beautiful tubes at PFD.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Template: kktempz47 from Kandi Kissez.
Find this on her blog here.
* Leave some love when snagging the temp. ;)

Filters: Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow 

Font: Carpenter Script

Drop shadow: 2 4 35 8, black.
Save your progress often.;)

Let's do this! =)

Open up the template. Duplicate it & close original. 
Delete the credit layer at the top.
Working from the bottom layer of the template, up:

green circle- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert. 
Delete this layer & paste paper 6, resized 80%.
Hit delete & select none. Crop to canvas.
Add a drop shadow.

green rectangles- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert. 
Delete this layer & paste paper 8.

Delete this layer & paste paper 12, resized 70%.
Hit delete. Select none.  

filmstrip- Using the magic wand tool, click inside each square 
(you may have to click twice). Modify- expand by 6. Invert. 
Copy & paste your closeup in each, resizing as desired.
Hit delete on each one. Select none. Crop to canvas. 
Erase any excess from each closeup.
Merge all closeups together & move below the filmstrip layer.
Duplicate the closeups. On the bottom one, 
change the blend mode to Luminance (L).
On the top one, add a Gaussian blur of 3. 
Change the blend mode to Soft Light.
On the bottom layer: Effects- Blinds at these settings:
Width- 2/ Opacity- 25/ Color- black
Horizontal & Light from top/left ticked.
* If you will be resizing your tag, Do this step AFTER 
resizing, to keep the effect 'clean'. ;)

pixel words- delete.

white word art background- Resize 80%. 
Link to 1. Add a drop shadow.
kandi wordart- Resize 80%. Link to 1.
Move these layers up as shown in my example.

Next add your main tube. Resize as needed.
Position her on the left of the tag. Add a drop shadow.

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

element 21- 50%. Place in top right of tag.

element 24- 50%. Place on top to the left of tag.
Move below your tube in layers palette.

element 23- 25%. Place in the center of the bow.

element 8- 65%. Place on right of negative.

element 33- 60%. Position on the lower right of tag. 

element 2- 40%. Place to the right of the North Pole sign.

element 18- 50%. Duplicate. 
Hang them from the bottom of the negative.

element 20- 60%. Position in front of your tube, off to the right. 

element 12- Position as shown, by the gift-box.

element 28- Mirror. Position on the right. 
Move below the word art in layers palette.

element 9- 47%. Place to the right of the candy cane.

element 15- 30%. Place left of the candy cane. Duplicate.
Resize this 2nd one 40%. Place on top of the cupcake 
& move down slightly. Move below the cupcake in layers palette.

element 10- Duplicate so you have 4. Resize them about 25%. 
Rotate them a bit & scatter them around,
like in my example.

element 11- Do the same as the other candies, 
resizing these 22%.

element 5- 30%. Rotate 8 left. 
Position to the left of the gift-box.

element 38- 80%. Erase any excess you don't want on your tag. 
NO drop shadow. ;)

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. Add a bit of noise:
Uniform/ Monochrome/ 65%.

Then add a gradient glow:
And of course, don't forget your drop shadow.

Finally, delete the white background. 
Merge visible, save as a PNG & enjoy. 

I hope you enjoy trying this tut.
I'd love to see your results.=)
