New PTU Tut - Wicked Ways

Sorry it has been so long since my last tutorial! But I have a darker side tut. It is made using the fabulous PTU kit by Kara at Sweet Cravings Scraps.

For this tutorial you will need the following:

Scrap Kit: PTU Wicked Ways by Kara @ Sweet Cravings Scraps HERE

Tube: The Fabulous Art work by Mark Wasyl HERE
(*note- you must have a license number to use his work)

Mask: Vix mask #400 HERE

Plug-ins: (Optional)
Eyecandy 4000: Gradient glow

Font Used: Free font The King and Queen Font

♥ Let's Get started! ♥

In Psp Open new layer 600x600 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 19 (resize by 86%)
Metal Butterfly 3 (resize by 22% & free rotate left 22%)
Metal Plate Word Art (resize by 72%)
Moon (resize by 56%)
Paint splatter 2
Rose 5 (resize 46%)
Satin ribbon curl 4 (resize 46% & flip)

You can always refer to the sample for placement of anything!
Copy and paste paper, Layers, Load Saved Mask, Mask from disk, choose the mask you wish
to use. Click ok and in the layer pallatte, right click on paper and merge group.
Copy the moon and paste. Move closer to the top. Still on the moon layer selections, float,
defloat, invert. Copy and paste the larger version of your tube and arrange to where you
like it, hit delete on the keyboard. Change blend mode to Luminance (L) and drop Opacity to
36%. Copy and paste Metal plate word art and adjust to the bottom of the moon, but make sure
it is above the moon layer. (on top of the moon) See the sample for placement. Add dropshadow.
Copy and paste the rose. Drag it below the moon layer, and position to the right side as shown
on the sample. Duplicate it and mirror it. Place it on the left side. Add your dropshadow.
Copy and paste the ribbon, drag below the metal plate word art. Add dropshadow. Copy and paste
the paint splatter. Postition to the top right side of the metal plate word art, allowing some
to overlap onto the moon. Add dropshadow. Copy and paste the butterfly, position on the
bottom right side on top of the metal plate. Add drop shadow. Copy and paste the tube and
move to the left side of the tag. Resize to fit. I did not have to resize mine. Add your
dropshadow. The font I used is a free font, but you can use what ever font for the name.
I selected a purple from the tube. I also added Noise to mine, this is optional, but if you
want to use noise, adjust, add noise, then use these settings:
Uniform checked
Monochrome checked
I then added a gradient glow. Again this is optional. Effects, Plugins, Eyecandy 4000,
Gradient glow on these settings:
Under the Basic tab:
Glow Width 3.00
Soft Corners 25
Overall Opacity 100
Draw only outside section checked
Under the color tab:
color black and move a second slider about half way down the bar.
Click ok. Add your dropshadow.
Crop and resize. I resized mine to 500. Add your copyright. Don't forget license info if using a PTU tube. Save and you are done! Simple and easy. I would love to see what you made!
