CT TUTORIAL ~ Sensual Blue

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 6, 2017.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using Chris Pastel's Sexy Dress 4.  You can purchase her at S&CO.

-- scrap kit of choice.   I am using a beautiful kit by Tammy's Welt called Butterfly in Hair, available here.
-- mask of choice.  I am using a mask from the Creative Misfits blog.
-- 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 Lipstick Traces.

1.  Choose a frame from your kit, duplicate, close original and save frame as your new canvas.  

2.  Select two papers and paste them in.  On the first, click your magic wand on the frame layer outside it.  Selections > modify > expand by 12, then return to paper layer and hit delete key.

3.  Paste in your tube and apply drop shadow.  Place where preferred.

4.  Apply mask to your other paper and merge group.

5.  Let's add in your 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 my placements or or place where preferred.  Remember to apply basic drop shadow after each element is placed unless otherwise marked:

33 (perfume bottle) - 50%. 
39 (bracelets) - 40%.
20 (heel) - 40%. duplicate and merge together to create a pair.
57 (rose) - 50%.  duplicate and resize copy to 70%.  optional - recolor copy to match your tube.
71 (hairbrush) - 35%.
75 (mascara) - 15%.
12 (hearts) - 45%.
13 (flower) - 70%.
25 (butterfly) - 25%.
71 (sparkles) - NO drop shadow.

6.  Create a new raster layer for your name.  Type your name and position to your liking.  In effects menu, go to Inner Bevel and apply the following settings:

7.  Apply basic drop shadow to name.

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