Sinfully Irresistable PTU
This tutorial was written on March 27, 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 called Venus by Athena Designs can be purchased HERE
++Valentine Template 184 by Missy can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the work of Cristina Mcallister and you can purchase her work from HERE
++Font and mask of choice
-Eye candy 4000 Gradient Glow
-Penta.com dots and cross
-Muera Meister copies
-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. Repeat this process for the rest of the template.
Now add a new layer, move it to the bottom of the layers palette. Flood fill with your choice of paper and add the mask of your choosing. Merge the group.
Then using your preset shapes, set on circle we’re going to draw out a fairly large circle. First pick the paper you like, and make sure its set in the foreground and background on your color palette. Now draw out the circle, make it large, you can downsize if you need to. Convert to a raster layer, and move to just above your mask layer. Go to edit, cut and then edit paste as new layer. The reason for this is to center it into the canvas. Delete the extra layer.
Open the splatter that looks like blue petals. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the upper right side of the canvas. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror and then image, flip.
Next open the blue leaf circle frame. Resize as needed, copy and paste as a new layer above the circle layer. Move and adjust it so that it looks like the frame is framing the circle. You may need to resize the circle a little.
Now open the butterfly of your choosing, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Using your plug in, muera meister copies, set it on the encircle option and I believe I set X and Y to 65. Choose the number of butterflies. Click ok and now adjust the butterfly circle over the circle frame. Adjust as needed.
Then open the garden arch/trellis thingy lol. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. You want to make sure that it’s mostly towards the top of the canvas. Keep in mind, we’re still building from the mask up. These are all below the template layer.
Open the constellation glitter. Resize then copy and paste over the trellis at the top of the template layer and adjust as you need to.
Next open the moon of your choosing, resize then copy and paste in the upper left corner of the canvas.
Now open your tube of choice, crop it, then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it above the circle template layer. Center the tube in the circle. On the circle layer, go to selections, select all then selections float, then selections, defloat. Then go to selections, invert. On your tube layer, hit the delete key. Go to selections none. On the tube layer, duplicate it. Go to adjust, blur, guassian blur. Set it at 3 and hit ok. On the blur layer, we’re going to change the blend mode. Go to your layer’s palette and change the blend to overlay. Merge down. Using your plug in penta, jeans set it at the setting you personally like. Hit ok.
Still working around the circle layer here. Open the rose you like, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it an angle somewhere around the circle. This way it looks like its framing the circle. Duplicate it several times, and move it around the circle more. Leave the top of the circle open. Add a butterfly to the center of it. Add butterflies in between the roses.
Open your tube again, this time at full length. Resize it if you need to. Copy and paste as a new layer, over the rectangle on the right. On the rectangle go to selections, select all then selections defloat. Now go to selections, invert. On your tube layer, hit delete. Go to selections, none. Add your plug in, penta, dot and cross. Set it to the setting you like.
Again open your tube. Resize it if you need to then copy and paste as a new layer. This time over the rectangle layer at the bottom. Your going to place it so the part showing in the rectangle that you want shown. Duplicate it several times, moving it up or down, again showing what part you want shown. Do this across the rectangle. Merge down until the tube layers are all together. Back on the rectangle layer, go to selections, select all then selections, float then selections defloat. Now go to selections, invert. On the tube layer, hit the delete key. Go to selections none. Now duplicate this layer. Go to adjust, blur, guassian blur and set it to 3. Then change the blend mode to overlay, just as we did before.
Now open another rose, resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the left of the right hand rectangle. Move one to the bottom of it, duplicate it then move to the top. Add a bow to the top of the rectangle and a candle to the bottom left.
Go to each template layer and add the gradient glow of your choosing.
Finally add your text, copyrights, license info and tagger markings. Save and your done! Thanks for trying my tutorial.
