Valentine Treat

This Tutorial was written by me, Angel Flower, from my own ideas. Any similarities to others is coincedence. All my tutorialsare registered with TWI.

For this tutorial you will need

Scrapkit. I am using a PTU kit by Melisa called Say it With... You can purchase it here http://cottoncandykreations.com/shop/

Mask. I am using a mask by Weescotlass wsl_mask214. http://weescotslasscreations.blogspot.com/ Save the mask to your psp masks folder.

A tube of choice. I am using the work of Keith Garvey, you must purchase a license from MPT, http://www.mypsptubes.com/, in order to use his work.

New image-600x600-transparent.

Flood fill with white.

Choose a paper for your background and paste as a new layer. If it is too big, go to image-resize-about 85%-all layers unchecked. If it is still too big you can repeat this step.

Go to layers-load/save mask-load from disk. In the drop box, find the mask, Source luminance, hide all, and fit to canvas all checked. Invert transparency unchecked.

I then resized my mask layer by 115%. Right click on the mask layer and choose merge group.

Duplicate your merged mask layer to make it stand out more. Right click on the top one and go layers- merge down.

Paste a frame as a new layer. If needed, resize it using the pick tool, arrow tool, and drag the box by a corner to the size you want. Position so it is centered over your masked layer.

Give your frame layer a drop shadow by going to effects-3d effects-drop shadow. I used 0,0,100,10,black.

Paste one of the butterflies as a new layer. Resize if needed and position on the top left of the frame.

Make your white background active and paste the heart charms as a new layer. Resize if needed. I left mine in the position they were in when i pasted them.

Make your frame layer active and paste one of the candles as a new layer. Resize it and position at the bottom of your tag on one side of the frame. See my tag for reference. Duplicate this layer and postion on the other side of the frame. Again see my tag for placement.

Give each candle a drop shadow, this time I used 0,1,70,black. On the second candle i used -1 instead of 1.

Paste a flower as a new layer and resize. Move this layer below your frame layer. Position so it sticks out of one side toward the bottom. Duplicate several times and arrange them along the side of the frame. Iduplicated mine four times for a total of five. See my tag for placement.

Now, starting with the top flower layer, right click and go merge down. Do this on each flower layer except the very last one, until only the flowers are all on one layer.

Duplicate this layer and go image mirror. Now you should have flowers on both sides.
You will need to grab your eraser tool, i used a size of 32, to erase the bits of flowers on both layers that show inside of the frame.

Paste your tube as a new layer. Resize if needed. Position how you like or how i have mine if you are using a similar tube. Give it a drop shadow of choice. Make sure this layer is at the top.

Paste any other embellishments you wish. I pasted some hearts on each side of the candles.

Now is the time if you wish to resize your entire tag to do so. Go to image-resize. Choose pixels instead of percent, make sure lock aspect ratio and all layers is Checked. Change the size to what you want, i use 500x500. When you change one theother automaticly changes.

Add your copyright so it is clearly visible.

Add your name. Position how you like and give it a drop shadow.

Thats it, you are done!
