PTU- Steampunk Sweetheart

*Click for bigger
I wrote this tutorial about a month & a half ago,
before I put my Steam Punk'd kit in the stores.
I didn't get a chance to post this tut then,
so I'm going to post it now for you, 
as I work on getting caught up. ;)
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 my Steampunk'd kit.
You can find this in all the stores I sell at, located on the right.
Tube: I'm using the artwork of Cris Ortega, who's a FTU artist.
Do not use any artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.
Masks: mask of choice.
Filters: Mura Meister's Copies
Xenofex 2- Constellation
Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow
Font: Big Top
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 the gear cluster. 
Apply Mura Meister's Copies at these settings:
Then apply your mask.
Merge group & resize 90%.
Add some sparkle with Xenofex 2- constellation:
Next, copy & paste frame 5.
Resize 80%.
Now, use your magic wand & click inside the frame.
Modify- expand by 4. Invert.
Copy & paste a paper of choice, resizing about 75%.
Hit delete & keep selected.
Add your tube, resizing about 80%.
Use your eraser to erase some of the excess at the bottom.
Select none.
On your tube, apply Xero- Radiance
at these settings (or your own):
Duplicate it & then, add Xero-Porcelain:
Then, add your drop shadow & 
add a drop shadow to your frame.
Now we'll add some elements.
For each one I added, I added a drop shadow to, 
unless specified otherwise.
roses- 70%
Place on the right of the frame.
pin- 47%. Rotate 17 right. Sharpen.
Place with the roses.

Place over the lower half of the roses 
on the right.

Use your lasso & make a selection around 
the chain & hit delete:
Select none.

Next, copy & paste 'Sweetheart' from the word art.
Resize 90%. Add a gradient glow:
Add your drop shadow.
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 bevel:
Then, add a gradient glow at these settings: 
Then add your drop shadow.
Finally, merge visible & save as a PNG & enjoy.=)
Now, I did make an animated version, 
with the constellation effect'on my mask layer:
But, personally, I'm not happy with having 
the white background. lol

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