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).
~Over the Rainbow PTU collab scrapkit which you can find @ PSP Tube Stop HERE. This kit is FULL of awesome stuff!!!! Including the tube I used in this tut.
~Tube of choice. I used one of the tubes that came with the collab kit. ~Template of choice. I used Leah's template 54 which you can get on our blog HERE.
~Font of choice. I used Stonehenge Thin.
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:
Butterfly Daisies Shamrock green
~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 tube (Leprechaun girl element from kit), add drop shadow.
4. Open and place the following elements: Rainbow 2 Shamrock-cluster Green grass layer 2 White daisy cluster Ribbons double bow pink Purple rose 3 Green rose 1 Pink rose 3 Yellow daisy 2 Butterfly purple Butterfly green Butterfly orange Butterfly skyblue
~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 Rainbow 2)~
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!!!!!!!!!!
