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).
~Cheers & Hugs PTU scrapkit by Wicked Princess Scraps. This kit is an exclusive for The Art of Giving and can be purchased HERE.
~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of Keith Garvey, you must have a license to use this art which you can get from PTE HERE.
~Template of choice. I used Crazy Cakes Scraps Snow Bunny template which you can get HERE.
~Font of choice. I used Signerica Fat.
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, remove and 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 7
Paper 8
Paper 11
~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 a close up.
~Add drop shadow to full body tube.
~I changed the mode on the close-up 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). This tube has 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).
4. Open and place the following elements:
Beaded Snowflake
Snowflake 2
Birds on ski's
Kitten box
Skating snowman
Rose
Rosebud
Mums
Ornament 2
Gloves
Ice skate
Candycane
~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~
5. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers).
6. Crop Image (Image > Autocrop Image).
7. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image).
8. Add copyright info and name.
9. Save as .png
ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!
