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) Candy Treats FTU scrapkit by Kittz which you can get HERE. ~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of Four X's Designs, you must have a license to use this art. You can purchase this art from PTE HERE. ~Template of choice. I used template 2 by Just Fi which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Altitude. 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. ~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). 3. Open tube, you will need to duplicate this tube so that you have 2 (at the bottom of your layer box click on the blue box. Thsi will give you 2 tube layers). ~Select the top tube layer in your tool box. Add Gaussion Blur (Filters > Blur > Gaussion Blur, use default settings) ~On that same tube layer change the mode to Screen (at the top of your Layer Box you will see where it says Mode, click the arrow and select Screen from the drop down menu). Below is what your tubes in your layer box should look like

~Both tubes have been added to the template (Right click on template layer in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select tube layer in layer box > Delete. Do this for both tube layers).

4. Open and place the following elements:

Sucker Lollipop (x2) Gumball Sweetie 1 Sweetie 2 Bow Star Sweet 1 Sweet 2 Curled Ribbon f3

~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!!!!!!!!!!
