PTU- Kinky Valentine

* 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 X2, 
tho' any version should work.

Supplies Needed: 
Scrapkit: I'm using a kit from Purple's Kreationz called Kinky Love.

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Keith Garvey.
You can find more of his amazing artwork here.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Template: Template0017 from me, here

Mask: of choice

Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy Impact 5- Gradient Glow 

Font: Scriptina

Drop shadow: 4 2 55 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.

sparkle brush- send this to top in layers palette.
Mirror. Hide for now.

Customize the word art & word art bkgrd layers to your own preferences.
Add a drop shadow to the word art bkgrd layer.
Move the word art up a little in the canvas.

Next add your main tube, under the word art layers. 
Resize if needed. 
Apply Xero- Radiance at these settings:
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.

E16- 40% position this one around the word art.
Add the cuffs again, resize 50%. 
Use your lasso to make a selection around one of the cuffs:
Promote this selection to layer.
On the original, hit delete & select none.
Flip this promoted cuff. Move it so it 'connects' with the chain. 
Merge down & move in front of the word 'kinky' & under your tube's hand.

E38- 50%.
E31- 65%
E29- 35%. Rotate 30 left.
E43- 30%. Place on the candy hearts.
E18- 40%. Mirror
E15- 47%
E6- 80%
E41- 65%
E14- 50%. Move this below your tube in layers palette.
E7- 40%
E4- 30%. Mirror. Position on the top left of the cage.

E3- 60%. Place this by the word 'kinky'.
Then move down to just above the handcuffs.
On the handcuffs layer, draw a selection like mine:
Hit delete on the cuffs layer.

E28-40%. Rotate 42 right. 'hang' this on the skins box.

Now go back up to the sparkle layer. Rotate 22 left. 
Position as desired & erase any excess.

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

Now, add a paper of choice & apply your mask.
Merge group & move this mask to just above the white background layer.
Resize your mask about 110%, if needed.

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

Next, add your name.
Then add a gradient glow:
And a drop shadow.

Finally, delete the white background, merge visible, 
save as a PNG & enjoy. =)
