CT TUTORIAL ~ Golden Girl

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 January 30, 2016.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I used the tube Golden Martini by Andy Cooper.  You can purchase her here.

-- scrap kit of choice.  I'm using a match kit by Chili Designz for this tube, available here.) 
-- mask of choice.  I'm using a mask from the Creative Misfits blog.  Check out all their goodies here.
-- the plugins Mura Meister (Copies) and EyeCandy (Gradient Glow).
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- font of choice.  I am using 101StarlitNight.

1.   Open a frame from your scrap kit.  Duplicate, close original and save as new canvas.  Resize canvas if needed.

2.  Paste in a paper of choice under the frame.  Click inside the frame.  Selections > modify > expand by 10.  Selections > invert, return to your paper layer and hit delete key.

3.  Paste in your tube and repeat step two.  Apply the basic drop shadow.

4.  Open up a sparkle element of choice and paste behind the tube.  Resize as needed.  Apply basic drop shadow but lower opacity to 25.

5.   Paste in a second, contrasting paper as your bottom layer.  Apply mask and merge group.

6.  And now time for some elements.   Numbers/names 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.  Any directions for placement of elements are optional - you can follow them or or place where preferred.  Remember to apply Jazzy's basic drop shadow after each element is placed unless otherwise marked:

flower - 70%.  place beneath framed paper layer.  duplicate once and place next to first flower.  merge and duplicate, then mirror to opposite side.
leaf5 - 65%.  place beneath framed paper.  duplicate 2-3 times and spread out.  merge these layers.  duplicate merge layer once and place copy under flowers on opposite side.
violin - rotate right 35%.  place at bottom of frame.
shoe2 - duplicate and merge.  place near violin.
lips - place where preferred.
deco - resize to 35%.  Apply Mura Meister Copies plugin, V-Tile rotate default settings.  drop this layer just above mask layer.  NO drop shadow.
glitter2 - place just below tube layer.  NO drop shadow.

7.  Create a new raster layer for your name.  Type your name and place it to your liking.  Go to inner bevel and apply the following settings:

8.  Apply the following drop shadow settings twice:  2, 3, 6, 2.20 and a contrasting color of choice. 

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