Strawberry Flirt

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 (2014 BB Pinup Girl) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using  a PTU kit, Strawberry Love, by Amy Marie 
(This kit was made to match a layer on a Derzi tube available at Beehive Studios)

Font of choice, I am using Fiolex Girls

Plugins: Xero Porcelain
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 element 27 copy and paste as a new layer, rotate left 90, resize 85%
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 7 copy and paste as a new layer click delete on your keyboard

Copy and paste your tube, arrange in the frame, click delete on your keyboard
duplicate your tube, on the top layer, adjust blur, gaussian 3, change the blend mode to soft light
on the bottom layer, apply Xero Porcelain with the default settings, except change blue to zero
Adjust Hue & Saturation, change both to zero

 Copy and paste your tube again, mirror it and resize by 45%
 add the following elements:

element 14 resize 55% arrange on bottom right
element 23 resize 55% arrange on bottom right, behind gift
element 12 resize 55%  arrange on bottom right, behind the other 2 elements
element 20 resize 55% arrange on bottom left corner
element 37 resize 45% arrange between roses and gift
 element 10 resize 45% arrange above roses on left
element 24 resize 45% arrange above strawberries on left
element 64 arrange on top above white background, 
duplicate several times and arrange around tag

crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
