FTU- On Top Attitiude

* 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 XI, tho' any version should work.

This is fairly simple & doesn't require too much effort.;)

Supplies Needed:
Scrapkit is Attitude from Tasha's Playground
This is a free to use kit. Make sure to leave some love 
when downloading. =)

Mask of choice. 

Tube: I'm using the always gorgeous artwork
from Keith Garvey. This one is called Menacing.
You can find this tube at PTE.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so
& have purchased the tube.

Filters: Xero- Porcelain
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow 
Eye Candy 4000 HSB Noise

Fonts: Bleeding Cowboys & Sick Capital Vice. 

Let's do this! =)

Open up frame. Duplicate it & close out the original.
Image- Canvas size- 650 X 650.
Copy & paste a paper of choice. Move below your frame in layers.
Apply mask of choice. Merge group.

Copy & paste cityscape. This should fit perfectly in the frame. 
Move it below the frame in layer palette. Do not drop shadow.

Next, click inside frame with magic wand. Modify- expand by 16.
Invert. Copy & paste another paper of choice. Hit delete. 
Move this paper under the frame. Next copy & paste your closeup.
Position as desired. Hit delete. Select none.

Crop your tag to canvas (surround the whole tag & crop).
This eliminates any phantom shadows on your tag.;)
Next, on your closeup, duplicate.
On the original, change the blend mode to Luminance (L).
On the duplicate, add a Guassian Blur of 3. 
Set the blend mode to Soft Light. Change the opacity on both layers to 40.
Move your cityscape layer above your tube layer in the layers palette.
Add a drop shadow of choice to your frame.

Next copy & paste brassknuckles. Add drop shadow.
Add the dice next. Add a drop shadow.
Copy & paste skull. Resize 80% & rotate 15 right.
Sharpen & add drop shadow.

Next copy & paste your main tube. 
Resize if needed & place her to the right. Apply Xero- Porcelain:
Add a drop shadow.

Resize tag to your choosing.
Now add your copyrights & watermarks.

Next, using the Bleeding Cowboys font,  type out 'On Top' 
or whatever phrase you choose. Duplicate. 
On top layer, add HSB noise at the default settings.
On the bottom layer, add a thin light grey gradient glow. 
Add noise- Uniform/ Monochrome 65%. Add drop shadow.

On a new layer, type your name using the Sick Capital Vice font.
Duplicate. On bottom layer, add gradient glow:
Add noise again to this glowed layer.
Merge visible & save as a .PNG

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial & creating your tag.
I'd love to see any results any of you have. =)
