FTU- Kiss My Shamrocks

* 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 FTU kit from Designs By Joan 
named Lucky You. This is exclusive on her Facebook page.
Like her Facebook page to get the kit, here.
*Leave some lovin' when snaggin' the kit. ;)

Tube: I'm using the beautiful artwork of Keith Garvey.
You can find it at Garv-Girls PSP Tubes.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Template: 200mpm from Millie's PSP Madness.
Find this template here.
* Leave that girl some love when you grab the temp.;) 

Mask: of choice.

Filters: Xero- Porcelain
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow 

Font: Bunchlo

Drop shadow: 0 0 60 4, black.
Save your progress often.;)

Delete this layer & paste PAPER 3, resized 80%.

Since we want to keep the hat sticking out of the circle, 
use your eraser to erase the excess at the bottom.
Select none. 
Apply Xero- Porcelain to your closeup:

7 & 8- add a drop shadow.

9- drop shadow.

10- Add a gradient glow:
NO drop shadow.

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

Place on the right.

LuckyDay35- 60%. 
Place with the beer bottle.

LuckyDay-4- 50%. 
Place in front of the beer.

LuckyDay23- 55%.

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

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