postheadericon Pinkelcious Xmas Tut

Feel free to use my tutorial as a guide and
have fun giving it your own spin.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Needed Supplies & Filters :

Tube of Choice .. I am using the work of Eugene Rzhevskii which you must have a license to use. Please do not use his work without purchasing through MPT here.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous PTU kit from Puddicat called
Joy’s Pinkelcious Xmas Dreams which be purchased here.

Mask of Choice .. I have used WSL_Mask112 which can be downloaded from weescotslass here.

Filters required ... Xenofex (Constellation) & Animation Shop

Font of Choice .. I have used Snowblind.

Let's get started !

New Image 600x600 and floodfill with white. Open your mask in PSP.

New raster layer, select all and paste into selection Paper 19. New mask layer from image, WSL_Mask112, invert mask data unchecked, and merge group. Resize 125%.

Duplicate twice and rename layers Mask 1, Mask 2 & Mask 3. On your first mask layer apply the following Xenofex/Constellation.

Apply the same Constellation to your next mask layer and hit random once. Apply again to your last mask layer hitting random twice. If you decide not to animate your tag, then just skip the duplicate twice.

Copy and paste Frame 3 & resize 75%. Using your magic wand, select the middle of your frame. Selections & modify expand 3. Copy and paste Paper 14, selections invert, hit delete and do no deselect. Move this layer below your frame layer. Copy and paste Tree 1, resize 75% and drop shadow. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout. Position on the left side, layer duplicate and mirror. Hit delete. Copy and paste your tube, hit delete. Select none.

Copy and paste your tube again, but this time above your frame layer. Erase the bottom portion of your tube that covers your frame. 

I have added the following gradient glow and then drop shadow to the frame.


Copy and paste Candle 1, resize 75% & drop shadow. Position bottom left. 

Copy and paste Present 2, resize 75% & drop shadow. Position bottom right. Copy and paste Present 4, resize 50% and drop shadow. Position next to your other present. Copy and paste Bag 2, resize 40% & drop shadow. Position with your presents. Copy and paste Bow 9, resize  30% & drop shadow. Position on your bag. 

Copy and paste Trumpet 2, resize 40% & drop shadow. Position top left hand side of your frame. 

Copy and paste Poinsettia 1, resize 30% & drop shadow. Position top right hand corner of your frame. 

At this point if you need to, resize your tag. I have used 500x500. Add your copyright and name. I have used Snowblind 72 using paper 7 as my pattern. I then added the same gradient glow and drop shadow as before.

If you are choosing not to animate, then you can save your tag.

To animate, close off Mask Layer 2 & 3 (the lil eye icon in your layer palette), Edit/Copy Merged and paste as new animation in Animation Shop. Close off Mask Layer 1 and open Mask Layer 2, Edit/Copy Merged and paste after current frame in AS. Close off Mask Layer 2 and open Mask Layer 3, Edit/Copy Merged and paste after current frame in AS. Save as a gif.
