CU Licenses

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).
~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of Elias Chatzoudis, you must have a license to use this art which you can get at PTE HERE.
~Give Thanks PTU scrapkit by Rebel Dezigns which you can also get at PTE HERE.
~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask 302 which you can get HERE.
~Font of choice. I used ValentinaJF.
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 element 32 (stick frame), add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow).
3. Open Paper 5 center it behind frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser.
4. Open tubes. I used both a full body tube and a close-up.
~Take the close up layer and move it (in your layer box) under the frame, but above the paper. Change the Mode on the tube 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). Remove excess tube layer using a cutting tool or eraser.
~Add drop shadow to the full body tube.
5. Open and place the following elements:
element 6
element 11
element 18
element 21
element 23
element 28
element 30
element 31
element 33
element 42
element 45
element 46
~Some elements may need to be sized down. Using the Scale Tool in your tool box adjust pixels to desired size~
~Add drop shadow to all elements~
6. Open Paper 6
7. Open mask.
8. Add mask to paper (click HERE for a tut on using masks)
9. Merge layers (Image > Merge Visible Layer).
10. Crop image (Image > Autocrop Image).
11. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image).
12. Add copyright info and name.
13. Save as .png
You are finished :)
