PTU- Happy Spring

* 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 PTU kit from Tasha
 named Those Spring Days.
You can find more information about this kit 
& where you can find it, here.

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Lady Mishka.
This was an exclusive free tube at SATC 
if you made a purchase of $10.00 or more.
Do NOT use any artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased or obtained the tube legally.

Template: TTzHappySpringTemp2013 from Twyzteds Playroom.
You can find the template here.
* Leave her some love for the template. ;) 

Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow 

Font: Precious

Drop shadows: 2 2 55 2, black.
10 8 55 4, black for the butterflies & girl.
Save your progress often.;)

You may want to un-link the layers of the template as well. ;)

Now, working from the bottom layer of the template, up:

Move below the word art in layers palette.

Next we'll add some elements.

Erase the shadow of the sparkles so just 
the flowers have the drop shadow.

Move below tube in layers palette.

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. Duplicate.
On the top one, add a bevel:
On the bottom one, add a gradient glow:
Then, add some noise to this layer:
Uniform/ Monochrome/ 60%
Then, add a drop shadow.

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