CT TUTORIAL ~ Pirata Lass

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 May 1, 2017.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using "Pirata 6" by Julia Fox.  You can purchase her here.

-- scrap kit of choiceI am using Kelz' awesome match kit of the same name, which you can purchase here.
-- mask of choice.  I am using a mask by Rachel.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- the plugins Mura Meister Copies and Eye Candy Gradient Glow.
-- font of choice.  I am using .

1.  Select a frame of choice from your kit.  Duplicate, close original and save copy as your new canvas.

2.  Select two papers from your kit and paste them in.  For the paper that will go directly underneath the frame, resize if needed and position to your liking.  Return to frame layer, click outside frame with magic wand, selections > modify > expand by 6.  Return to paper layer and hit delete key.

3.  Select your other paper.  Apply mask and merge group.

4.  Paste in your tube under frame and resize as needed.  Apply basic drop shadow.  Repeat latter half of step two to remove excess tube outside frame.

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.  Placement directions are optional.  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:

8 (treasure chest) - 55%.
7 (cutlass) - 65%.
101 (starfish) - 40%.
119 (barrel) - 40%.
127 (spyglass) - 35%.
61 (flower) - 35%.
63 (flower) - 30%.  Apply Mura Meister Copies plugin, Encircle preset with # of copies at 25.  Drop this layer behind frame.
34 (shell) - 60%.
118 (anchor) - 35%.
bottle (56) - 40%.
pirate flag (23) - 45%.
vines (82) - place just above frame layer.

6.  Create a new raster layer.  Type your name and place it within the open frame space.  In your plugins menu, go to EyeCandy > Bevel Boss and apply the Carve preset, default settings.

7.  In your plugins menu, go to EyeCandy > Bevel Boss and apply the following settings:  

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