postheadericon Santa's Mistress 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 KatNKDA which you must have a license to use. Please do not use her work without purchasing through her store here. I am licensed through Artistic Minds Inc. but they are now closed.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous PTU Kit from KatNKDA called Santa's Mistress which was purchased through Artistic Minds Inc. who are now closed. The kit is currently unavailable.

Font of Choice .. I have used Gwendolyn Bold.

Let's get started !

New image 600x600. Floodfill with white. Copy and paste maskedbackdrop03.png.

Copy and paste Element 10. Using your magic select the middle of your frame. Modify expand by 3. Copy and paste Paper 3, selections/invert and hit delete. Do not deselect. Drag this layer below your frame layer.

Copy and paste katnkdaSantasMistress02 and hit delete. Select none.

Copy and paste your tube again, this time above your frame layer. Erase the bottom portion of your tube that is covering your frame. Drop shadow your frame. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Copy and paste Element 2, resize 85%  & drop shadow. Drag this layer below your top tube layer.

Copy and paste Element14glitteroverlayframe. Duplicate the layer twice and rename your layers Glitter 1, 2 and 3. Select your first layer and Xenofex/Constellation with the following settings :

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

Copy and paste Element 1, resize 85% & drop shadow. Position bottom of your frame.

Copy and paste Element 16, resize 75% & drop shadow. Position bottom right hand side.

Copy and paste Element 38, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position bottom right hand side just above your ribbon bow.

Copy and paste Kat_s_Pete_Scene4, resize 65% & drop shadow. Position bottom left hand side.

Copy and paste Element 20 just above your mask layer and position top right hand corner. Layer duplicate and mirror.

At this point if you need to, resize your tag. I have used 500x500. Add your copyright and name. I have used Gwendolyn Bold Size 72  color #650000 withthe following gradient glow and drop shadow.

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

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