This tutorial is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tuts is purely coincidental. This tutorial is for personal use only, using it for monetary gain is against our TOU's. Supplies Needed: ~Gimp (any version will do). ~Emo Kitty PTU scrapkit by Rieka Rafita which you can get HERE. ~Tubes of choice. I used the artwork of Verymany, you must have a license to use this art which you can get HERE. ~Template of choice. I used Template 10 which you can get from Stacy's Stuff HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask 84 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Clarissa. Let's get started!!! 1. Open a new layer ( I prefer a large canvas, so I make mine 1050x656). Make your canvas transparent (Layer > Transparency > Color to Alpha). 2. Open template in PSD format, move layers of template around until they are the way you like them. ~Add paper from scrapkit to individual layers of the template (Right click on template layer in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select paper layer in layer box > Delete). These are the papers I used: Paper 1 Paper 2 Paper 15 ~I lowered the opacity on the mask layer of the template to 50 (at the top of your layer box you will see where it says "OPACITY", click the small arrows next to the numbers to change opacity to the desired level) ~ ~I added noise to some of the template layers to make them look glittery (Filters > Noise > RGB Noise). ~I colorized some of the template layers to better match the scrapkit (Colors > Colorize > play with the setting until you get the desired color). ~Add drop shadow to template layers (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open tubes, I used both a full body and 3 close-ups. I changed the mode on the close-ups to Hardlight (at the top of your Layer Box you will see where it says Mode, click the arrow and select Hardlight from the drop down menu). I also lowered the opacity to 40, to make them lighter (follow same directions as used above on the template mask layer). The close-ups have been added to the template in the same way you add paper (Right click on template layer in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select tube layer in layer box > Delete). Add drop shadow to full body tube. 4. Open and place the following elements: Glitter Splash 2 Flame Ribbon 2 Ribbon 4 Razorblade Heart Crossbones Shoe Buttefly Skull Skull 1 Skull Kitty Flower 3 Flower 4 Star 2 Bag Sparkle 1 ~Some of the elements may need to be sized down. Using your scale tool in your tool box adjust the pixel size until element is the correct size~ ~Add drop shadow to all elements (except Sparkle 1) ~ 5. Open Paper 14 6. Open mask 7. Add mask to paper 8. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers). 9. Crop Image (Image > Autocrop Image). 10. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 11. Add copyright info and name 12. Save as .png ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!
