New PTU Tut - Uptown Girls

I decided to write a tut with one of my own kits. It is a PTU kit and you can find it at Exquisite Scraps! The kit is called Uptown Girls.
For this tutorial you will need the following:

Scrap Kit: PTU Uptown Girls by Me HERE

Tube: The Fabulous Art work by Ismael Rac HERE
(*Note you need a license number to use his work)

Word Art Supplied HERE

Plug-ins: (Optional)
Eyecandy 4000: Gradient glow, and glass

Font Used: Inspiration

♥ Let's Get started! ♥

In Psp Open new layer 800x800 transparent checked.
For the drop shadow on evertying I am using the following settings:
Verticle: 3, Horizontal: 3, Opacity: 70, Blur: 6, color black. (you use what ever you want)
(*Resize everything before you start copy and pasting)
Open your scrap kit and select:
Paper 5 (resize by 86%)
Paper 12 (resize by 86%)
frame 1 (resize by 120%)
Branch (free rotate by 40%)
Building (resize by 64%)
Car 2 (resize 72%)
Diamond accent 2
Feather 4
Ice bucket 2 (resize 46%)
Moon (resize 82%)
Plant (resize 64%)
Stars 2 & 4 (resize by 82%)
Wine glass (resize by 46%)

You can always refer to the sample for placement of anything!
We are going to start with the frame. So copy and paste your frame to the new layer. It
should be in the middle. With your magic wand tool, click inside the frame, selections,
modify, expand by 6. Selections, invert. Now copy and paste paper 12 and drag it below your
frame. Hit delete on the keyboard.
Copy and paste the branch, add dropshadow, adjust it below the frame, copy and paste the feather in front of
the branch, add dropshadow See example for placement.
Copy the moon and place it below the frame layer and adjust to the left top corner. Erase any
part of the moon that is seen on the outside of the frame (if any), add dropshadow.
Copy and paste the building and arrange to the lower left side behind the frame. with your magic wand tool, click inside each window. (to allow each window to be selected hold down shift each
time you click in a window) Selections, modify, expand by 6, selections, and invert. Copy and
paste paper 5 drag below the building and hit delete on the keyboard. With your selected tube
before copy and pasting, image, mirror, then copy and paste below the building above the paper
layer. Hit delete on the keyboard, now your tube should only show through the windows. Here you can either leave the paper the color it is or you can add a yellow tint to it. I added a yellow
tint to mine. select the paper layer click on manual color correction and change it to a yellow
hue. Back on the tube, change the blend mode to Luminance (L). Still on the tube layer, effects
plug-ins, xero, radiance on these settings:
Strangeness 128
Charm 50
Truth 128
Beauty 155
Click ok. This step is optional, you do not have to use plugins. Add dropshadow to the building.
Copy and paste the black stars. Move to the top right corner above the frame layer.
I erased the smallest stars so it fit right. Add dropshadow. Copy and paste
the pink stars and move to the top right and do the same thing with erasing the stars. Add
dropshadow. (see sample for placements).
Copy and paste the tube. I used xero radiance on it as well. This is Optional also. Use the
following settings for radiance:
Strangeness 128
Charm 50
Truth 128
Beauty 155
Click ok. Add dropshadow. Now you just have to copy and paste the rest of the elements as I did
My tutorials are just a guideline to follow, make your tag how you like it. You can use what
ever elements you would like. If you are following my sample. Then you would copy and paste
the car above the tube. Add dropshadow. Copy and paste the plant to the left bottom side
above the frame. Add dropshadow. Copy and paste the ice bucket and the wine glass. Add
dropshadow to both and arrange in front of the plant, (see sample for placement). Copy and
place the diamond accent below the car and plant. Add dropshadow. Add your dropshadow to the frame also. In my supplies I have the word art. If using the word art, then copy and paste
the word art and arrange to your liking. Add your dropshadow.
Using what ever font you choose, add your name. I used the darker pink color from the feather.
If you would like the black line around the name like mine, then add a gradient glow. Effects,
plugins, eyecandy 4000, gradient glow on these settings:
under Basic tab
Glow Width 3.09
Soft Corners 25
Overall opacity 100
Under color tab
Black for the color
move an addition slider to 1/4 of the way down the bar. Click ok, add dropshadow.
Crop and resize. I resized mine to 500. Add your copyright and license number if using a PTU tube. Save and you are done! Simple and easy. I would love to see what you made!
