CT TUTORIAL ~ Umma's Delight

NOTE: you MAY link to this tut. you MAY print it out for later use offline. you MAY NOT claim it as yours or take anything else from it. this tutorial is ©Ruby/Stormlight, written July 28, 2015.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I used the tube Umma by Toriya.  She is available for purchase here.

-- scrap kit of choice.  I used the matching kit of the same name by Designs by Joan, which you can purchase here.
-- template of choice.  I used a template by Designz by Ali.
-- mask of choice.   I used a mask by Vaybs.
-- the plugins Lokas Gel and EyeCandy Gradient Glow.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- font of choice.  I am using Saliere.

1.  Open your template, duplicate and close the original.  Save as your new canvas and resize as needed.

2.  Paste in your tube and position to your liking; resize if needed.  Apply drop shadow.  Click outside shape 1 with magic wand, return to tube layer and hit delete key.

3.  Open three papers from your scrap kit.  Paste one as your background and apply mask, then merge group.  Click your magic wand outside shape 2 and paste your second paper, then hit delete key.  Repeat the previous step with shape 1 and your third paper.

4.  Select the doodle layer.  Choose a color from your kit.  With the color replacer tool, color part of the doodle the new color.  Choose new colors from your kit every so often as you continue replacing the color so that when you are done, the doodle is now a mixture of colors.  Go to EyeCandy > Glass and use default settings, glass color white and the bevel profile button.

5.  Time for some elements.  Names/numbers apply to the scrap kit I'm using so if you're using a different one, use the elements of your choice.  All elements are resized with the smart size setting.  Remember to apply Jazzy's basic drop shadow after each element is placed unless otherwise marked:

14 (pink-red flower) - 55%.  place on left hand side.
44 (bright orange flower) - 30%.  place next to previous element.
71 (yellow-pink spiky flower) - 35%.  place next to previous element.
72 (orange-red floral cluster) - 40%.  place above left-hand flowers.
63 (bees) - 35%.  place to liking above flowers.
23 (ribbon) - 75%.  place under flowers.  Duplicate and mirror; move copy under rest of flowers and allow curls to be visible at bottom edge.
30 (tea and flowers) - 50%.  place on right hand side.
75 (reddish flower) - 30%.  place on right hand side.
9 (book) - 50%.  place next to tea and flowers.
88 (tulip) - 55%.   place in front of book.
16 (gold butterfly) - 45%.  place in upper right corner.
100 (butterfly and glitter) - 70%.  place under gold butterfly.  NO drop shadow.

6.  Create a new raster layer.  Type your name and position it to your liking.  Go to Lokas Gel and apply the following settings except change the main color to a color from your tube or kit:

7.   Go to EyeCandy > Gradient Glow and apply the following settings:

8.  Create a new layer for your copyright/watermark and add it on.
