Vampire Tears PTU
This tutorial was written on December 29, 2009 Shani aka Wicked Princess. The concept of the tag is mine and mine alone. Any resemblance to any other tag/tut is pure coincidence. This was written for those with working knowledge of PSP.
++Paint Shop Pro ( I used 10 but any version should work)
++Scrap kit by Kissed By Pix called Love Bites can be purchased from HERE
++Template 12-Valentine by Ali can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the artwork of Delphine Le Vesque De Meirs and it can be purchased from www.cilm.com You must have a valid license in order to use this artists work.
-Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
++Font and mask of choice
-Add Drop shadow of choice as you go
-You can merger layers as you want to make things easier for yourself.
Open the template in PSP, using your shortcut keys on your keyboard (SHIFT+D) duplicate the template as a new image. Close the original.
Open several papers of choice, resizing as needed. For example, when I look at the blue bar where it tells me what I’ve opened (say like paper 2) it tells me what percentage I’m viewing it at. For me it’s usually 16%, so I resize to 16% bringing it to 100%. ( I hope that made sense!) Once you’ve done this, minimize for later use.
Next go to the bottom template layer and go to selections, select all, then float, selections defloat. Add a gradient glow of choice. Don’t forget to go to selections, none then delete the template layer. Repeat this process for the rest of the template. **Note do not add a gradient glow to the roses.
Add a new raster layer, flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your mask, and merge group. Move this layer to the bottom.
Open the scroll doodle, the one that looks doubled. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the bottom of the template layers and the bottom of the canvas. Duplicate it and go to image, flip.
Open your tube of choice, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. To make yours look like mine, like its “popping” out of the frame, duplicate it. Then move the duplicated layer below the heart frame layers. On the top layer, use your eraser tool and erase the parts on the bottom that you don’t want to show through the frame.
Next open the moon, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the upper left hand corner of the canvas. Add the long ribbon to the center of it.
Now open the cross of your choosing, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the center of the moon. Add the bling heart of choice you like to the center of that.
Then add the tag of choice to the upper right hand side corner of the canvas. Over that add the bling heart you like.
Finally add your text, copyrights, license number and tagger markings.
Save and your done! Thanks for trying my tutorial.
