Sweetheart (FTU)

(Click tag to see full-size image)


This tutorial was written by me on February 9th, 2013 and was written assuming you have a general knowledge of PSP.  You will need the following supplies:

I used the beautiful artwork of Renee Lavoie.  This gorgeous tube is entitled "Scarlette" and can be purchased at PSP TubeStop.  You must have a license to use.

I used an awesome FTU kit called "Shot Through The Heart" by Vix PSP.

Plug-in used: Xero Radiance

Mask #42 by Weescotslass.

Font used: Janda Quirky Girl

Drop shadow used throughout: H&V 2, Opacity 50, Blur 10.

~~ Remember to save often! ~~

Place the mask in your PSP mask folder or a folder of your choice.

Open a new image, 750 x 750, white background.

From the kit, open E2 and resize 80%.  Copy and paste as a new layer.

Using the magic wand, click inside the frame.  Selections > Modify > Expand > expand 5.

Open the image that comes with the tube and resize 85%.  Copy and paste as a new layer and move below the frame.  Position as shown, invert the selection and tap delete.  Deselect.  Apply drop shadow to the frame.

Apply the Xero Radiance plug-in to the image using these settings:

Click OK.

Copy and paste the tube as a new layer and position to the right of the frame.  Drop shadow.

Add your elements, I used:

E5: resize 15%, duplicate and mirror, duplicate again and resize 70%.  Repeat as desired.
E6: resize 40%, then 85%
E7: resize 40%
E17: resize 85%
E21: resize 50%
E23: resize 50%, then 80%

Apply drop shadow to all elements.

Hide the background layer and add a new raster layer.  Select all.  Copy and paste P3 into the selection, deselect.  Apply WSL mask #42 and merge the mask group.  Use the raster deform tool to adjust mask size and placement.

Foreground: #f1e2b5
Background: #671e20

Open the text tool and select Janda Quirky Girl.  Size 72, Stroke 1, create as Vector.  Type your name and position where desired.  Layers > Convert to Raster Layer.  Apply drop shadow, I used H&V 2, Opacity 50, Blur 5.

Add all applicable copyright and license information.  Save as a png or jpg and you're finished.  Enjoy and thanks for trying my tutorial!

I'd love to see your results, email me HERE.

Hugs, Carol
