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). ~I Heart Goth PTU scrapkit by Rieka Rafita which you can find on her blog HERE. ~Tubes of choice. I used the artwork of BamBam, you must have a license to use this art which you can get HERE. ~Template of choice. I used Template 2 which you can get from Tasha's Playground HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used Lizquis mask 4 which you can get from Lizquis Scraps HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Weltron. 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 8 Paper 9 Paper 13 Paper 16 ~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. I changed the mode on the close-up to Grain Merge (at the top of your Layer Box you will see where it says Mode, click the arrow and select Grain Merge from the drop down menu). The close-up 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). Add drop shadow to the full body tube (and the puppy dog tube as well). 4. Open and place the following elements: Glitter Ribbon 2 Cat Cup Skull 1 Skull 2 Skull Star Cupcake Bottle Love ~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 Glitter)~ 5. Open Paper 17 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!!!!!!!!!!
