Welcome & Disclaimer

Hello & welcome to SuthrnPrincess Tuts. I am so excited that you stopped in to see what I have made with the gorgeous tubes and fabby kits that are out there. You will find FTU & PTU kits as well as FTU & PTU Tubes are used in my tutorials. If you run into a problem on a tut please feel free to email me and I will help if I can. My use of a FTU tube does not give you permission to use it. I have obtained permission either from the artist themselves or through a group to use their artwork. You need to personally contact them to obtain permission before using.

**Disclaimer**

The tuts contained within this blog are my own creation. They came from my brain and were created by my own hand. Any resemblance to the works of others is completely coincidental.

postheadericon Pink Star Tut




Supplies:

Tube of choice. I used a tube by Elias Chatzoudis at his store. It is best to use one with a close up.
PTU Scrap Kit Black Star-Pink by Tinas Magical Scrap World.

Mask by Bluedream Designs. You can find it on her blog.

Font of choice. I used ALS Script.

Optional- Plug In Photo Effects.



Lets get started:

Open a New Image that is 700x700.

Select your Rectangle Tool. It can be found with your Preset Shape. Choose the background color you would like. I used color #e5239d. Draw a rectangle that is approximately 600 wide by 160 high. Right click on the layer in the Layer Palette and Convert to Raster.

Select Magic Wand Tool. Click on the rectangle with the wand. Selections> Modify> Contrast> 10 then select OK. Now hit your delete key on your keyboard.

Open the frame of your choice from the kit and resize it to 300. Copy and paste the frame to your canvas. Use your Pick Tool to move it to the left of the canvas over the top left corner of the rectangle frame you created. Image> Free Rotate> Left 35 degrees. Right click on the layer in the Layer Palette and Duplicate. Image> Mirror. Now use your Pick Tool to move over bottom right corner of frame.

Right click on the bottom most layer. It should be just an empty Raster Layer right now. Create New Raster Layer.

Using your Flood Fill Tool select a color in the Color Palette and flood fill. I used the same color as I did for my frame. OR you can copy and paste a paper of choice from the kit.

Either way while on the background layer Selections> Modify> ExpandX6. Selections> Invert and hit your delete key.

*Optional* Duplicate your background layer. Effects> Plug Ins> Photo Effex> Scanlines> Settings: Width1, Spacing 3, Dark Band Strength 20, Light Band Strength 10, Noise Amount 0, Darkness/Lightness 0 and make sure the Vertical Toggle box is checked. You can play around with these settings to your liking. Then hit OK. Change the Blend Mode (located above the Layer Palette) to Multiply.

Copy and paste tube of choice. Resize with Pick Tool if need be. Using your Pick Tool select inside of your frame (making sure you are on the frame layer first). Selections> Modify> Expand x6. Click on the tube layer in your Layer Palette. Selections> Invert and hit your delete key. Selections> None.

Move the tube layer to about your scanlines layer. (If you like you can place it under. Mine looked better above.) Change the Blend Mode on your tube to Luminance.

Paste your tube again. Move to the left under the Frame you used from the kit. Resize with your Pick Tool to your liking. Select the Frame layer in your Layer Palette and with your Magic Wand click inside of the frame. Selections> Modify> Expand x6. Selections> Invert then hit your delete key.

Now go to Effects> Photo Effects> Black and White Film> Settings: Filter Color: red 33.3%, Green 33.3%, Blue 33.3%; Adjustments: Brightness 0, Clarify 50 then hit OK.

Right click on the black and white tube layer and Duplicate. Image> Mirror. Use your Pick Tool to move behind bottom right Star Frame.

Open a Brad of choice. I used Brad 3. Resize to 150 height making sure that aspect ratio is locked. Copy and Paste to canvas. Place over top right corner using your Pick Tool. Right click layer in your Layer Palette and Duplicate. Image> Mirror and use your Pick Tool to move it to over the bottom left corner of the rectangle frame.

Open and resize Star Splash of choice to 200 width. I used 2. Copy and paste. Use your Pick Tool to move to the top left of your rectangle frame keeping it to the right of your star frame. Right click on layer and Duplicate. Drag one layer under the black and white tube layer. Click on the top Splash layer in your Layer Palette then use your Erase Tool to remove whatever is hanging over the frame onto your tube that you wish to remove.

Select the bottom Star Splash layer and Duplicate. Image> Mirror. Image> Flip. Move with Pick Tool to bottom left over the star and rectangle frame like you did before. If you choose you can duplicate it and remove the parts hanging over the Star Frame.

Copy and paste Glitter Star Doodle of choice. I used doodle 1. Image> Mirror. Drag layer to under your paper layer that is behind the rectangle frame you created.

Resize bow of choice to 100 width. Copy and paste as new layer. Use your Pick Tool to rotate about 35 to 45 degrees and place it over the left top corner of the rectangle frame. Right click on the layer and Duplicate. Image> Mirror. Image> Flip. Use Pick Tool to move over bottom right corner of frames. Effects> 3D Effects> Drop Shadow> Settings: Vertical 1, Horizontal 1, Opacity 60, Blur 3, color black.

Add shadow to all of your layers EXCEPT the following: Top most Splash, black and white tube layers, paper, overlay, and the tube in your rectangle frame.

Now open your Mask of choice in PSP and minimize it.

Right click on the Layers Palette and Create New Raster layer. Flood Fill the new layer with a color of your choice. I used the same as I did for the rectangle and its background (#e5239d).

Layers> New Mask Layer> From Image> Select the mask in the drop down bar, make sure Source Luminance is selected and depending on your mask invert as well and hit OK. If you hit ok and your mask is incorrect just undo with your back arrow and redo the steps either choosing to deselect invert or to select it whatever the opposite is of the first try.

Resize the mask with your Pick Tool to your liking. Right click on the layer in the palette and select Merge> Merge Group.

Create another New Raster Layer and repeat the steps above with white as the color.

Resize to 600.

Add copyright.

Choose the font you would like to use and add the name you are putting on the tag. I used ALS Script). Type the name, make sure stroke is 0 and hit Apply. I used the same pink color I have been using since the beginning. I also used the following settings specifically if you are attempting to make it exactly the same as mine. Size 100, Bold selected, Kerning -15.

Duplicate. Convert top layer to Raster. (This is done by right clicking on the layer and selecting Convert to Raster Layer.) Select bottom layer with Text Tool. It will cause the text box to open with the name highlighted. Change the stroke to 6 and pick a color you want from your tube or the kit. I used black. Convert to raster.

Effects> 3d Effects> Inner Bevel> Bevel: Bevel shape 2 in the drop box, width 5; Image: Smoothness 25, Depth 2, Ambience 2, Shininess 100; Light Color to layer of text you are on, Angle 0, Intensity 20, Elevation 60.

Do this for both layers of the name.

Select the top layer of the name in the Layer Palette. Adjust> Add/Remove Noise> Add Noise> Settings: Uniform, Monochrome selected Noise 15%.

Do the same for the bottom name layer except change the Noise to 40%.

Add drop shadow to bottom with the same settings as before.

Right click in the Layer Palette on any layer and select Merge> Merge Visible.

Save as a PNG.
