New KIT & Freebie Sampler- W.L.S.T.D (When Love Starts To Die)

Looking for a 'soft' Goth, HIM-Spired kit? 
When Love Starts To Die is another kit based off a song
from HIM's newly released Tears On Tape album,
which was released on 30, Apr. =)
W.L.S.T.D is an awesome kit filled with 20 papers, 
100 elements & 6 frames in soft pinks,
 rose & grey-blue hues for some wicked tags
or an awesome blog layout like I did with mine. =)
You can find this ONLY at Pics For Design here
& at Mystical Scraps here.


* I always forget to mention that 1/2 the sales
from this kit & all my other HIM-spired kits
are going to the band. ;)

And I also have a freebie sampler kit for you:
You can download this from me, here:

I enjoy seeing your creations with my kits.

Just a Lil' Note...

Things have been really hectic/ chaotic on my side 
of the world, so I haven't been able
to keep up with posting CT tags. =/

BUT! Kelly is going to be helping me out.
I've made her an Admin in my CT group
& she's got control of this blog, too. =)

Tonight she'll be posting all my FANTABULOUS
tags her & all my other awesome Creative Teamers 
have made for me. 

With that said, Please join me in giving a HUGE
thank you to her & also a congratulations for her
new 'position'. =)

Thank you again, Sweetie!!
I owe you!! =)

PTU- Pornstar Dancing

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 deliciously naughty kit 
from Kizzed By Kelz named Pornstar Dancing.
You can find more information about this kit, here.

Tube: I'm using the always hot artwork of Barbara Jensen.
You can find all her stunning artwork here.
Do NOT use any artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased or obtained the tube legally.

Template: Template0028 from me, here.

Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy 4000- HSB Noise
Xenofex 2- Constellation
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow 

Font: Nite Club

Drop shadows: 5 3 50 5, black for most of the tag.
- 5 3 50 5, black- for the shaker & shotglass.
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:

rectangle- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert. 
Delete this layer & paste Paper 5.
Hit delete & select none. Crop to canvas 
& add a drop shadow.

circle- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert. 
Delete this layer & paste Paper 4.
Hit delete & select none. 

small circle- select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste Paper 1, resized 80%. 
Hit delete & keep selected.
Add your tube or closeup.
Hit delete & select none. Crop to canvas.
Duplicate your tube. On the top one, add a 
Gaussian blur of 3. 
Change the blend mode to 
Saturation (L) at 60%.
On  the bottom one, change the 
blend mode to Luminance (L).
Add a drop shadow to the paper layer.

sm. rec.- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste Paper 9, resized 80%. 
(I moved mine done a bit to get more of the blue.)
Hit delete & select none. Crop to canvas. 
Drop shadow.

rotated rec.- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste Paper 3, resized 80%.
Hit delete. Select none. Crop to canvas.
Add a gradient glow at these settings:
* Note, I have mine set at fluorescent tubing
with the glow width set at 8.
For the inner blue colour, I used #4e80db.
Then add your drop shadow.

arrow- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste Paper 2.
Move the paper slightly off to the left & down.
Hit delete. Select none. Crop to canvas. 
Add the same gradient glow,
changing the light blue to #484ad3.
Add your drop shadow.

For the word art layers & bkgrds, 
change to your own preferences.

Next add your main tube. Resize as needed.
Position on the right of the tag.
Apply Xero- Radiance at these settings:
Add a drop shadow.

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

note swirl- 75%
Use your manual color correction to change the colour:
Source- #231f20
Target- #6aa9ee or colour of choice.

stripper pole- place in the lower center of tag.
Move below your tube in layers palette.

dance floor- place at the bottom center of tag
below the stripper pole.
Move below your tube in layers palette.

spot light- 55%.
Place in upper right of tag.
User your eraser to remove some of the excess 
so it's 'flush' with the black circle.

light- 50%.
Place in the top left near the point of the arrow.
Move below your word art in layers palette.

bead scatter- 75%.
Position this with the light, 
below the word art & light layers.

Place on the lower left.

stool- 60%
Place this with the table.

Place this on the lower right.

Place this with the shaker.
Drop shadow: -5 3 50 5, black.

hat- 35% Rotate 40 right. Sharpen.
Place on the speaker.

sexy heel- 37%
Duplicate & position by the speaker.

geisha balls- 35%. Mirror.
Place over the word art.
Add your drop shadow.
Then, use your lasso to draw a selection
around part of the string like my example:
Hit delete & select none.

handcuffs- 30%. Sharpen.
place these on the dancefloor, off to the left.

tickle whip- 50%. Rotate 20 left. Sharpen.
Place on lower left.

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:
Then apply Xenofex 2- Constellation:

On the bottom one, add a gradient glow, 
changing that blue to #1316c4:

Now apply HSB Noise at these settings:

Now, add a drop shadow.

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

I have a tag for Ms. Jensen as well:
I hope you enjoy trying this tutorial.
I'd love to see your results. =)
