CT TUTORIAL ~ Audrey's Voodoo

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 23, 2017.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using "Audrey" by Tammy's Welt.  You can purchase Audrey here.

-- scrap kit of choice.   I am using a kit by Lil Mz's Brainstorms called "Donia Catrina", which you can get here.
-- template of choice.  I am using a template by Jill.
-- mask of choice.  I am using a mask by Wynter.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- the plugins Tramages and Gradient Glow.
-- font of choice.  I am using Fack.

1.  Open your template, duplicate and close the original.  Save copy as your new canvas.  Delete any creator/copyright layer.

2.  Open four papers of choice and paste into canvas.  Send one to the bottom to be your mask layer and hide for now.  Select your first paper and move it just above the central oval, and the second above the background green square.  On each, select all > float > defloat > invert and hit delete key.

3.  Move your third paper above the turquoise square.  Resize paper to 55%, then repeat the latter half of step 2.

4.  Select the black border square and apply 77% noise, gaussian, monochrome.

5.  Resize the purple circle on the left side to 75%.  Floodfill with a color from your tube or kit.  In your plugins menu, go to Tramages > Metal Peacocks and apply these settings:

6.  Select the green strip in the center of the canvas and repeat step 5, but increase the shading on Metal Peacocks to between 60-75 (I chose 67). 

7.  Unhide your bottom paper.  Apply mask and merge group.

8.  Paste in your tube.  Resize if needed and place where preferred.  Apply basic drop shadow to tube.

9.  Now let's add 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 my placements or or place where preferred.  Remember to apply basic drop shadow after each element is placed unless otherwise marked:

28 (fat ribbon) - place just above mask layer on the left.  duplicate and mirror.  NO drop shadow.
95 (skull) - 25%.
83 (black rose with stem) - 35%.
23 (rose) - 25%.  duplicate once and resize copy 60%.  [optional - use manual color correction tool to change color]
62 (coins) - 30%.
71 (spell books) - 30%.
100 (candles) - 20%.
60 (branch) - 40%.  [optional - use manual color correction to change color]
106 (wolf) - 45%.

10.  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 these settings:

11.  In plugins menu, go to Gradient Glow and apply the following settings:

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