CT TUTORIAL ~ Enchantress

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 25, 2018.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using "Enchantress 2" by Ju Kirumy.  You can purchase her here.

-- scrap kit of choice that includes at least one scenic paper.   I am using the match kit by Jenn's Designs, which you can get here.
-- mask of choice.  I am using mask #224 by weescotslass.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- the plugins Eye Candy and Mura Meister.
-- font of choice.  I am using Apalu.

1.  Select a frame from your kit, duplicate and close original.  Save frame as your new canvas.

2.  Choose two papers (one a scenic paper) from your kit and paste into your canvas below the frame.  Position/resize scenic paper inside frame.  Select frame layer and click magic wand outside it.  Modify > expand by 3-5 > invert and hit delete key on paper layer.

3.  Select other paper and apply mask, then merge group.

4.  Paste in your tube as your top layer.  Resize as needed and apply drop shadow.

5.  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:

2 (rocks) - place just under tube layer.
75 (bunny) - 35%.
21 (fawn) - 60%.
64, 65 (bottles) - 50-60%.
68 (spell books) - 45%.
20 (vines) - 65%.  apply Mura Meister Copies, Encircle (default setting) and then place just above mask layer.
38, 58, 67, 81 (flowers) - 40-55%.
84 (crystal ball) - 65%.
62 (stars) - NO drop shadow.
26 (rain) - 55%.  NO drop shadow.

6.  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:

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

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