CT TUTORIAL ~ Punkin' Sexy

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 February 26, 2018.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using "Marie" by Jane Donskih.  You can purchase her here.

-- scrap kit of choice.   I am using "Candy Biker Latex" by Disturbed Scraps, which you can get here.
-- template of choice.  I am using a template by Punky.
-- mask of choice.  I am using a mask from an MSN forum created by CacyStar42.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- the plugin Eye Candy.
-- font of choice.  I am using Bleeding Cowboys.

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

2.  Select papers 3, 6, 14, from your kit and paste them in.  Drop paper 6 to the bottom and hide for now.  Move paper 14 just above the layer labeled Pbs Frame.  Select the frame layer.  Select all > float > defloat > invert, return to paper layer and hit delete key.  Repeat with paper 3.  

3.  Use manual color correction on paper 3 to change to a darker color to match your tube or kit.

4.  Unhide your bottom paper.  [optional - repeat step 3]  Apply mask and merge group.

5.  Paste in your tube.  Resize as needed, then apply drop shadow.  Place on left side of canvas.

6.   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 place where preferred.  Remember to apply basic drop shadow after each element is placed unless otherwise marked:

60 (curled lines) - duplicate several times and place around edges of canvas at random.  merge these layers together and drop just below your tube layer.
59 (heart scatter) - 70%.  duplicate once and spread across the lower half of your design.
56 (chain) - move to just above tube layer.
38 (star) - 40%.
29 (choker) - 50%.
46 (lips) - 50%.
53 (dark scatter) - place near top of your canvas.  NO drop shadow.
31 (advisory sign) - 55%.  rotate 20 degrees right before placement.
36 (dog) - 55%.
6 (pair of hearts) - 75%.  place opposite tube.  duplicate and mirror copy, drop copy under tube layer.
1 (zip flower) - 40%.
7 (boot) - 45%.  duplicate and rotate copy 60 degrees left.  merge layers.

7.  Create a new raster layer for your name.  Type name and position opposite tube.  Go to Inner Bevel and apply these settings:

8.  Go to Eye Candy > Gradient Glow and apply these settings:

9.  Create new raster layer and add on your copyright/watermark.
