CT TUTORIAL ~ Angel in Red

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 April 2, 2018.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using "Red Dream" by Josephine Sha.  You can purchase her here.

-- scrap kit of choice.   I am using "Heart Breaker" by Joan, which you can get here.
-- template of choice.  I am using a template by Ali.
-- mask of choice.  I am using a mask by Ciara from the Soonerbelle MSN forum.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- the plugin Eye Candy.
-- font of choice.  I am using Rachella Script.

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

2.  Open four papers and paste into canvas.  Send one paper to bottom and hide for now.  Select darkest paper and move above the large center rectangle.  Select all > float > defloat > invert and select paper, then hit delete key.  Repeat with other papers and the thin rectangles on the right.

3.  Select rectangular frame.  Add noise with the following settings:  random, 67%, monochrome CHECKED.

4.  Paste in your tube and resize if needed.  Place on right hand side and apply drop shadow.

5.  Unhide bottom paper.  apply mask and merge group.

6.  [optional] Select the scrolled decorations layer and use manual color correction to change it to a light color from your tube/kit.

7.  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:

15 (necklace) - 40%.
7, 17, 19, 27 (flowers and leaves) - 30-60%.
75 (butterfly) - 20%.
79 (feather) - 35%.
85 (key) - 35%.
62 (glass) - 50%.
98 (wine bottle) - 45%.
108 (cherries) - 30%.
64, 58, 19, 10 (flowers) - 35-55%.
39 (word art) - 55%.  rotate 20 degrees left and drop to just above rectangle layers.  change blend mode to overlay.  NO drop shadow.
4 (heart scatter) - duplicate once and place both copies at random just above mask layer.  NO drop shadow.
113 (sparkles) - NO drop shadow.

8.  Create a new raster layer for your name.  Type your name and position to your liking.  go to Inner Bevel and apply the following settings:

9.  In plugins menu, go to Eye Candy > Gradient Glow and apply these settings:

10.  Create new raster layer for your copyright and watermark.
