FTU-Magic In The Moonlight

*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 Digicats (& Dogs),
named By The Moonlight.
You can find this on her blog, here.

Tube: I'm using the artwork Zindy S. D. Nielsen.
* I have added colour to my tube for this tutorial.
You can find more gorgeous artwork here.
Do not use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube at the ZindyZone Shop.

Mask: of choice
I'm using a mask 13 from Moonbeams & Spiderwebs.
The one I am using can be found here.

*Make sure to leave lots of love for the supplies. =)

Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow

Font: Lavenderia

Drop shadow: 0 0 55 4, black 
Save your progress often.;)

Let's do this! =)

Open a new canvas 650 X 650 px.
Copy & paste a paper of choice.
Apply your mask & merge group. 

copy & paste Frame02. Resize 85%. 
With your magic wand, click inside the frame,
(you may need to click more than once 
on the right side where the flowers are.)
Selections- Modify & expand by 6. Invert.
Copy & paste another paper of choice, resizing 65%.
Hit delete & select none. Move paper under your frame.
Then add a drop shadow to the frame.

Add your main tube. Resize as needed.
Duplicate. On the top one, apply 
Xero: Radiance at these settings:
Then change the opacity to 50%.
Add a drop shadow to the bottom tube.
Back on the top tube,
use your magic wand to select the wings.
Add some noise- Uniform/ Monochrome/ 30.
Select none.

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

Fairy Moon- 37%. Mirror & rotate 12 right.
Place in the top right.

Moonlight-60% Rotate 12 right.
Position it so the top is in line with the bottom
of the moon.
Move under the moon in layers palette.
Sharpen. No drop shadow.

Aurora- 30%. Position so its hidden under the moon,
but on the moonlight beam. Sharpen.
No drop shadow.

Stars- 40%. See my tag for placement.

Fairy Dust Bag- 50%.
Place on the left.

Fairy Dust- 65% Rotate 90 left. Sharpen.
Place by the fairy dust bag.
Move below it in layers palette. 
No drop shadow.

Butterfly- 25%. Rotate 27 right. Sharpen.
For the drop shadow, Use
6 2 55 4, black.

Sparkles- 75%. Rotate 30 right. Sharpen.

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

Now add your proper copyrights & watermarks.

Now add your name. Duplicate.
On the bottom one, add a light
gradient glow at these settings: 
Then add some noise:
Uniform/ Monochrome/ 35.

Finally, merge visible & save as a PNG & enjoy. =)

Here's another version of the same tag, just using the kit & no tube:

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