Harlot


This tutorial was written by me on August 6th, 2013 and was written assuming you have a general knowledge of PSP.  You will need the following supplies:

"Harlot" is a beautiful tagger-size kit by Gemini Creationz.  I LOVE the colours in this kit!  You can find it at her new store, Gemini's Creative Studio.  Thanks so much Vicki!

Gorgeous artwork by Alex Prihodko.  His tubes are available at Pics For Design.  You must have a license to use.

Template #39 from Twyzted T's Playroom.

Mask #47 from Moonbeams & Spiderwebs.

Plug-ins used:

Xero Radiance

Eye Candy 4000; Gradient Glow

Eye Candy Impact; Perspective Shadow

Font used: Buffet Script; a web search will result in multiple links.

~~ Remember to save often! ~~

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

Open the template in PSP, shift + d to duplicate and close the original.  Delete the credit layer.

Resize the template (all layers) 85%.  Change the canvas size to 800 x 700.  Unhide the background layer and flood fill the blank area with white.

Activate Raster 12; select all, float and defloat.  From the kit, open Paper 4 and resize 75%.  Copy and paste as a new layer.  Invert the selection and tap delete.  Do not deselect.

Open Paper 11 and resize 75%.  Copy and paste as a new layer and arrange within the selection.  Tap delete and deselect.  Delete the original layer.

Activate Raster 4; select all, float and defloat.  Open Paper 7 and resize 75%.  Copy and paste as a new layer; invert selection and tap delete.  Deselect and delete original layer.  Apply a drop shadow of choice, I used H&V 0, Opacity 57, Blur 8.

Click OK.  Change the blend mode to Difference and reduce the opacity to 75%.

Repeat these steps for Raster 8 and Raster 10 but change the tube size to 140% and mirror the image.

Resize the tube 45%.  Copy and paste as a new image and arrange as shown.  Apply a drop shadow of choice, I used H&V 0, Opacity 57, Blur 8.  I then used Eye Candy Impact, Perspective Shadow with these settings:



Add your elements, I used:

Apply drop shadow of choice to all elements, I used H&V 2, Opacity 57, Blur 8.

Hide the background layer and merge visible.  Resize merged layer 85%.  Unhide the background layer and add a new raster layer.  Select all.  Copy and paste Paper 9 into the selection.  Deselect and apply Moonbeams and Spiderwebs Mask #47.  Merge mask group.  Use the raster deform tool to adjust size and placement.

Crop and resize your tag.  Add your name and apply Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow.  Under the Colour tab, select "Medium" from the list, leave the other settings as is.  Under the Basic tab, change the settings to this:
