Devil Girl In the City

For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Kim Draper, which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using New Age Outlaw, a PTU kit by Wicked Princess Scraps.
There are blinkies along the left side of the blog so you can go to whichever store you'd like to purchase the kit.

Font of choice, I am using Strangeworld

Plugins: No outside plugins

Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.

Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.

Let's get started!

Open a new canvas 750 x 750 white background.

Open frame 2, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 70%.
Click inside it with your magic wand, selections, invert.
Open paper 9, copy and paste as a new layer,
click delete on your keyboard, drag the paper below the frame.
Leave selected.

Open cityscape 2, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 80%.
Click delete on your keyboard & deselect.

Hide the white background, merge visible. Unhide white background.
Move the frame over slightly to the right.

Open metal frame. Copy and paste as a new layer,
resize by 35%.
Click inside all 3 of the parts of the frame with your magic wand
having it set to add/shift.
Open paper 5, copy and paste as a new layer,
click delete on your keyboard, drag paper below frame.
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer,
between the paper and metal frame.
Arrange where you want, click delete on your keyboard.
Change blend mode to luminance(L)

Hide the square frame and white background,
merge visible, unhide hidden layers.
Resize the metal frame layer to 70%.

Copy and paste the tube again, resize by 75%
mirror, arrange on the left side.

Add any elements you'd like. I used:

Fencing, rotate right 45, resize 80%
Stack money, resize by 30%
Spiked skull, resize by 30% then 80%
Poker chips, resize by 20%
