CT Tutorial for Dangerous Babe and Nicollette

**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- “Dangerous Babe” by Disturbed Scraps.  Available at Scraps N Company.

PTU Poser – “Nicolette” by Designs by Norella.  You can purchase the tubes at PicsForDesign.

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.

Add Element 090 to the canvas.  Resize to fit the canvas.  Add DS.

Add Paper 01 behind the element and resize it to ensure the hole in the wall is covered. 

Add Element 051 to the canvas.  Resize to about three times the original size.  Position so it mostly showing through the hole in the wall on the left side.  Add DS.

Add Element 042 to the canvas.  Resize to about three times the original size.  Position so it mostly showing through the hole in the wall on the right side.  Add DS.

Switch to the PSD file of your tube. Use the Rectangular Marquee Tool to draw a box around the top half of the poser.  Copy (Ctrl + C) the selection and return to your working canvas.

On your working canvas make sure the paper 01 layer is selected then paste (Ctrl + V) the copied selection.  Resize the selection so that the top half fits to your satisfaction in the center of the hole in the wall. 

Add Element 089 to the canvas and resize the element the width of the wall.  Add DS.

Add your tube and resize to fit on the canvas.  Positioned on the left side of the canvas.  Add DS.

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

Now decorate your tag with any of the hot 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 104
  • Element 034
  • Element 015
  • Element 009
  • Element 003
  • Element 022
  • Element 021
  • Element 064
  • Element 077
  • Element 083
  • Element 086
  • Element 041

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!
