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 Ismael Rac, which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Emo Scare Fest by Inzpired Creatitonz
which you can find at Pimp My Tags With Scraps
Font of choice, I am using Alice In Wonderland
Plugins: No outside plugins used
I do use Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow on all my copyrights/credits layers
I do this because some forums will make a .png tag show up with a black background and then your
copyright doesn't show.
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 850 x 850 pixels with a white background
open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer
cauldron resize 70% arrange to the left of tube
gravestone resize 65% arrange to the right of cauldron
cat 2 resize 65% arrange to the right of gravestone
cross arrange behind cat
flower 3, arrange behind cauldron and tube
cocktail 3 resize 50% arrange by cauldron & gravestone
spatter arrange behind tube
crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
