CT Tutorial for Alice by MistyLynns Creations

**This tutorial was written using Photoshop CC. I believe the instructions should work with various other versions, but they are not tested on any other version.  This tutorial is my own creation.  Any similarity to any other tutorial is not done purposely or knowingly (aside from the fact that the process is pretty similar in most tutorials).  If you do not know how to do some of the things I mention here (like mirroring an image, adding a drop shadow, resizing elements, etc.), check out my “Tips and Tricks” tutorial. **

PTU Kit- “Alice” by MistyLynns Creations.  Available at Scraps N Company, Pics For Design, or Scrap Candy.

PTU Tube  – “Alice” by Vermany.  This tube can be purchased from the artist’s store, Verymanytubes.

FTU Mask – “Mask 06- Fireball” by Aeval Amore.  This can be downloaded from my blog.

DS – Drop Shadow

Settings I use:
DS Settings - Blend Mode set to Multiply, Opacity set to 75%, Angle set to 120 degrees, Distance 5, Spread 0, Size 5

Open a new canvas (Ctrl +N) 700 x 700, transparent background.  This will be referred to as the working canvas in my directions when switching between canvases.

Follow the instructions in this tutorial to combine Paper 01 and the mask.

Once the mask is ready, add the final result to the working canvas and resize to fit.

Add Element 64 to the canvas and resize to fit the height of the canvas.  Position in center and add DS.

Add Element 09 to the bottom left of the canvas.  Duplicate the element and flip it horizontally (see Mirror image instructions here) and drag to the right bottom corner.

Add your tube and resize her to fit the canvas.  Position her so she is kneeling in the middle of the grass.  Add DS.

Add Element 10 to the canvas in front of the tube.  Resize to fit the canvas and Position so your tube is mostly displayed between mushroom bunches.

Voila!  The focal point of your tag is now created.

Now decorate your tag with any of the beautiful mad elements from the kit.  Resize the elements as you add them so fit the proportions of your tag.  Experiment with rotating them and mirroring them for more variety.  In addition duplicate elements and use multiple times to fill in holes and add more pizzazz.  In this tutorial to indicate when I used more than one of the same element I will add (X#) by the name to indicate how many versions of the element I used. 

Here are all the elements I used from the bottom layers up.
  • Element 65
  • Element 61
  • Element 60
  • Element 32
  • Element 03
  • Element 05
  • Element 02
  • Element 19
  • Element 38
  • Element 51
  • Element 62
  • Element 27

Add your license and copyright info to the tag.

Add name and any other text of choice.

Save as PNG and go share with all your friends!
