postheadericon Rose Red 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 and this tube is currently unavailable.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous PTU Kit from KatNKDA called Rose Red which is currently unavailable as it was purchased through Artistic Minds Inc. which is now closed.

Font of Choice .. I have used Gwendolyn Bold. 

Let's get started ! 

Open photomask02 in PSP. New raster layer 600x600 & floodfill with white. New raster layer, select all, copy and paste into selection Paper 13. Layer/new mask layer/from image find file photomask02, invert mask data checked. Merge group & resize 90%.

Copy and paste Element 12 & resize 60%. Using your magic wand, select the middle of your frame. Selections/modify/expand 5. Copy and paste Paper 5 below your frame, resize 65%, selections invert and hit delete. Do not deselect.

Copy and paste below your frame, your tube & resize 85%. Layer duplicate and drag this layer above your frame. On the tube layer below you frame, hit delete. Select none and drop shadow your frame. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Select the tube layer above your frame and erase the bottom portion of the tube so it appears to be coming out of your frame.

Copy and paste Element 39, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position bottom of your frame.

Copy and paste Element 38, resize 40% & drop shadow. Position next to your other ribbon.

Copy and paste Element 22,  resize 25%, image mirror, rotate right 30 & drop shadow. Position right hand side of your frame.

Copy and paste Element 16, resize 30%, rotate right 30 & drop shadow. Position over the stem of your flowers.

Copy and paste Element 3, resize 30 & drop shadow. Position at the bottom of your leaf stem. Copy and paste Element 1, resize 20 & drop shadow. Position next to your other roses.

Copy and paste Element 13, resize 10 & drop shadow. Position to the right bottom of your flowers.

Copy and paste just below your rose layers Element 19. Resize 70%, rotate right 70 and drop shadow.

If you like .. move the elements about a lil bit on the bottom to look better.

Copy and paste Element 26, resize 20, rotate right 15 & drop shadow. Position top right hand corner. Copy and paste Element 25, resize 15, rotate right 15 & drop shadow. Position next to your other butterfly.

X out white background, merge visible. Open white background, resize to your liking (I used 500x500).

Add copyright & Add your name. I used Gwendolyn Bold size 30 white and rotated it a bit to fit on the nameplate. 

Save and you are done.
