PTU- Take A Good Look

* 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 an awesome PTU kit from Kizzed By Kelz
named Middle Fingers Up! You can find the kit here.

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Redfill.
You can find more of this awesome artwork at Pics For Design.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased or obtained the tube legally.

Template: temp133 from Tamie Of Addictive Pleasures.
Find the template here.
*Leave some love for the template. ;)

Mask: A nice grungy mask of choice

Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow 

Font: Bikham Cyr Script

Drop shadow: 4 2 50 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.
Working from the bottom layer of the template, up:

Open Paper 3 from the kit. 
Copy & paste the paper above the white background 
on the temp. Apply your mask of choice. Merge group.
I resized mine 105% & then duplicated 
the mask layer to darken it a bit. ;)

Raster 7- float. Defloat- Invert. 
Delete this layer & paste Paper 7, resized 80%.
Hit delete & select none. 
Add a drop shadow.

Raster 6- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert. 
Delete this layer & paste Paper 5, resized 80%.
Hit delete & select none.  

Raster 2- select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste Paper 9, resized 80%. 
Hit delete & select none. Drop shadow. 

Raster 4- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste Paper 1, resized 80%. 
Hit delete & select none. 

Raster 8- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste Paper 4, resized 80%.
Hit delete. Select none. 

Raster 1- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste Paper 14, resized 80%.
Hit delete. Select none. Drop shadow.

Raster 9- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste Paper 2, resized 80%.
Hit delete. Select none. Drop shadow.

Raster 15- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste Paper 11, resized 80%.
Hit delete. Keep selected & add your tube or closeup.
Hit delete & select none. Crop to canvas.
Duplicate your closeup.
On the top one, add a Gaussian Blur of 3. 
Change the blend mode of this layer to Soft Light at 60%.
On the bottom one, change the blend mode to Luminance (L).

Raster 5- Use your manual color correction 
with the source as white & the target #8cbfb6 
(or color of choice). Then add some noise: 
Gaussian/ Monochrome/ 50.
Then add a drop shadow.

Customize the word art layers to your own preference.

Next add your main tube. Resize as needed.
Position on the right of the tag.
Apply Xero- Radiance at these settings
(or a setting of your choice):
Add a drop shadow.
Move the tube below the word art in layers palette.

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

finger- 55%. Rotate 10 right.
Position on the upper right.

girlie skull- 55%. Rotate 9 left.
Place this over on the upper right.

whiskey- 75%. Place on the left.

bottle- 70%. Rotate 90 right.
Place in front of the whiskey.

knuckles- 47%. 
Mirror & place on the lower left,
with the bottles.

cuff- 35%. Place in front of the knuckles.

chain- See my example for placement.

pill- 25%. Duplicate.
Mirror the bottom one & position by the bottles. 
Move the 2nd one with it. 

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.

After I resized my tag,
I add the sparkle & moved it towards 
the bottom of the tag.;)

Next add your name.
*If using the same font, you'll want a stroke set at 0.5 
in the same colour, since 'bold' doesn't look very good. ;)
Now rotate the name 12 left.
Then add a gradient glow:
And add your drop shadow.

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

I hope you had fun trying this tutorial.
I'd love to see your results. =0)
