CT TUTORIAL ~ Kimmie In the City

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 15, 2013.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice (I used Gary Rudisill's Kimmie--you can buy her at Scraps and the City.)
-- scrap kit "Kelly" by MistyLynn.  you can also purchase this gorgeous kit at SATC here.
-- a template by Smerfy, which i have uploaded for you here.  or you can use a texture of choice.
-- the plugin EyeCandy 4000 Gradient Glow.
-- Jazzy's "basic" drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3.
-- mask of choice.  i used a mask by WeeScotsLass.  you can grab lots of great masks at her blog.
-- font of choice.  I used Sloop Script Two.

Now let's get tagging!

1.  Open element23 (bent square frame), duplicate, and close original.  Resize 65% smart size.

2.  Open the silverbackswirly template and paste under frame.  Using your raster deform tool, stretch sides slightly so that the torn edges disappear.

3.  Paste paper of choice as bottom layer.  Apply your mask.

4.  Paste in your tube above the frame.  Apply basic drop shadow.  Resize as needed (I resized mine 40% bicubic).  If you are using a sitting tube like I am, seat/lean her on frame.

5.  Now it's element time!  All elements are resized with the smart size setting.  Remember to apply basic drop shadow after each element is placed:
46 (cityscape) - 70%, place under frame.
16 (light black rose) - place along top of frame.
24 (lipstick) - 35%
28 (shoe) - 35%.  Duplicate, merge down so you have a pair.
30 (credit card) - 30%
41 (sparkle streak) - place under frame but above cityscape.

6.  Create a new raster layer for your name.  Add your name and then go to your plugins menu and apply EyeCandy's Gradient Glow with the following settings:

7.  Create new raster layer for your copyright/watermark and add it in.

8.  Create one more new raster layer, floodfill with white and send it to the bottom.  Crop out any excess white space if needed and save as png.

And you're all done...enjoy your new tag!
