FTU- Birthday Punk

*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 Tasha's Playground,
named Misfits Birthday. Find the link to it, here.

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Arthur Crowe.
You can find more of his stunning artwork here.
Do not use this artwork unless you have a license to do so
& have purchased the tube.

Mask: RLB-Mask 6 from RedHeadLadybug,
part of the May 2013 Creative Misfits Choices masks.
Find the pack of masks here.

Filters: DC- 1972 (Optional)
or filter of choice for tube
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow

Font: Easy Rider

Drop shadow: 2 -2 50 4, black
Save your progress often.;)

Let's do this! =)

Open a new canvas 650 X 650 px.
Copy & paste paper3.
Apply the mask & merge group.
Resize 115%.

Now, copy & paste frame6.
With your magic wand, click inside each square 
of the frame. Modify & expand by 3. Invert.
Now, paste paper2, resized 80%.
Hit delete & select none.
Move the paper below your frame &
add a drop shadow to the frame.

Next, copy & paste frame4.
Resize 80% & move slightly to the left.
Again, click inside the circles of the frame
with your magic wand.
Modify & expand by 4. Invert.
Copy & paste paper6, resizing 70%.
Hit delete, keep selected.
Add your closeup, resizing as desired.
Hit delete & select none. Crop to canvas.
Move both the paper & closeups under the frame.
Merge the closeups together. Duplicate.
On the top one, add a Gaussian blur of 3.
Change the Blend Mode to Screen at 55%

Next, add your main tube. Resize as needed.
Place her in the middle.
Apply DC- 1972 at these settings
(you should only have to adjust the top 3):
Or use another filter & settings of choice.
Add a drop shadow to your tube.

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

glitter spray- Move this to just above
your mask in layers palette.

disco ball- 75%. Mirror.
Place this on the left of your tube.

present- 55%. Duplicate
Place both on right of tube.
On the top one, use Manual Color Correction:
#fad1e5- Source & #3d89eb- Target.
Then resize this one another 85%.

cake- 45%. Place on the left.

bubbles- 40%. Rotate 90 right.
Place in front of your tube.

jello shot- 35%. Duplicate.
Place both off to the left.

balloon4- 60%.
Duplicate so you have 4.
Place two off to the right.
Rotate one 8 right & the other 12 left.
The two left ones: Rotate one 10 left &
rotate the other 15 right.
Move both the left balloons under
your 2nd frame in layers palette.

candle1 or candle2- 27%
Place 'on' the cake'.

Add any other elements if you prefer.
Crop & resize to your own liking.

Now add your proper copyrights & watermarks.

Now add your name. 
Add a gradient glow at these settings:

Then add your drop shadow to this layer.

Finally, merge visible & save as a PNG & enjoy.
I hope you have fun trying this tutorial.
I'd love to see your results! =)
