Sex Kitten SAC! (FTU)
This tutorial was written on February 11, 2010 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 Dianna of Digicats and Dogs called Dark Cravings can be found HERE
++Template 54 By Kristin can be found HERE
++Two tubes of choice or the ones I used. I used the artwork of Elias Chatzoudis and you can purchase his work from MPT and you must have a license to use his 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. Don’t forget to go to selections, none then delete the template layer. Add a gradient glow of your choice. Repeat this process for the rest of the template.
Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your choice of mask and merge group. Move this layer below your template layers.
Open the mesh of your choosing, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it below your mask layer. Duplicate it and go to image, flip. Add your same mask to the mesh layers.
Now add the barb wire of your choosing to the top and bottom of the rectangle layer.
Then open the candelabra of your choosing, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the upper left hand corner of the canvas and below the circle layer. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Open your first tube of choice, resize and crop as needed. Copy and paste as a new layer, into the circle layer above the background word art. Position it the way you like, then go to selections, select all the selections, float and then defloat. Go to selections, invert and on the tube layer hit the delete key. Go to selections, none.
Next open the flowers of your choosing, resize then copy and paste as a new layer in a trio form to the bottom right hand corner of the canvas. Make sure they are below the circle layer.
Then open the other tube you like, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the right of the tag. Position where you like it.
Now open the paddle, resize then copy and paste as a new layer . Move to middle of the canvas on the left hand side.
Next open the cage, resize then copy and paste as a new layer below the paddle. Add a bow of choice to the top of it.
Now open several elements you like, resize and copy and paste in clusters toward the bottom right hand corner of the tag.
Add the heart with horns you like to the top of the canvas.
Finally add your text, copyrights, license number and tagger markings.
Save and your done!
