CT TUTORIAL ~ Witch Child

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 October 31, 2014.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice (I used Di Halim's precious Baby Witch.  You can purchase her at S&CO.)

-- scrap kit of choice (I used the made-to-match kit of the same name by Bibi.  you can purchase it here.)
-- Jazzy's "basic" drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- mask of choice.  I used a mask by Ella, which I found at the Creative Misfits blog.
-- font of choice.  I used DJ Punkin.

Now, let's create!

1.   Open a frame of choice (I chose element 114, the brown ribbon frame).  Duplicate and close the original.  Save as your new canvas.

2.  Paste in your tube as a new layer.  Resize if needed and apply Jazzy's drop shadow.

3.  Open up two papers of your choice.  Choose one and paste it as your bottom layer.  return to your frame layer and click outside the frame with your magic wand.  Selections > modify > expand by 8.  Return to paper layer and hit the delete key.

4.  Paste in the other paper beneath this layer.  Apply your mask and merge group.

5.  Let's add a few 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:

63 (pink pumpkin) - 50%.  place inside frame to the right.
64 (orange pumpkin) -  50%.  place inside frame to the left.  Use freeform tool to cut away any excess.
53 (wand)- 35%.  mirror so that the end (star) points to the upper left.  place on left hand side outside the frame.
67 (cauldron) - 45%.  place next to cauldron.
12 (leaf scatter) - 50%.  place inside frame above pumpkins.  NO drop shadow.
92 (pink bow) - 30%.  place on wand handle.
109 (potion) - 30%.  place just to right of cauldron.
103 (book) - 40%.  place next to potion bottle.

6.  Create a new raster layer.  Type your name and position it to your liking.  Go to your effects menu > 3D effects > Inner Bevel and apply the following settings:

7.  Apply Jazzy's drop shadow but choose a color from your tube or kit.  

8.  Create a new layer for your copyright/watermark and add it on.  Use a small font, such as Arial Narrow at 9/10 point.

and you're now done!  Enjoy your new tag!
