PTU Miss Darkness

This tutorial was written by me on October 8, 2012 and are the result of my own imagination. Any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written assuming you have working knowledge of PSP.

Supplies needed

I am using PSP X4 but this tutorial should work with any version.

PTU Tube & Scrapkit:  I am using the fantastic artwork of Ismael Rac.  Please do not use his artwork without a  proper license.  You can purchase his artwork at his store here.  This is a bonus tube and scrap kit
that you will receive if you purchase $10 or more at his store until October 19, 2012.  The scrap kit was created by Purple Creationz.  Check out her blog here.

 Mask: Vix halloween 0906.  You can download it at Vix's site here.  You will need to scroll down a bit.

Plug ins:  None.

Font:  Dracula.  This is a FTU font that you can download here.  Select D.
This tutorial was written using the supplies above.  If you are using a different tube or scrap kit you may need to make adjustments.  I am using a drop shadow of V/H 2 Opacity 50, blur 5, color black through out the tutorial unless otherwise state.

Open a new 600x600 transparent image.

Open frame of choice.  I am using MD-F1.  Copy and close the original.  Paste as a new layer.  Image resize 70% all layers not checked.  Using your magic wand, select inside your frame.  Selections modify expand by 10.  Add a new raster layer.  Open paper of choice, I am using MD-P2, copy and close the original.  Standing on  your new raster layer, Edit>paste into selection.  DO NOT DESELECT.  Move this layer under your frame.  Copy your tube, paste as a new layer on your working image.  Using your move tool, move your tube down until you find a spot you like.  Once happy with your placement, selections>invert, make sure you are on your tube layer and hit delete on your keyboard.  Select none, change your blend mode to screen and lower the opacity to approx 70%, add a drop shadow to your frame.

Time for some elements.

I used the following:

MD Coffin:  Resized 60% and moved to the bottom right of the frame. Drop shadow.
MD Pumpkin Cat:  Resize 60@ and move to the bottom in front of the coffin.
MD Tomb:  Resize 60% and move to the bottom left corner of your frame.  Drop shadow.
MD Trident:  Resize 80% and move to the right side of your frame and move this layer under your coffin layer.
MD Devil:  Resize 40% and move to the bottom left corner in front of your tomb.  Drop shadow.
MD Cauldron.  Resize 60% and move to the bottom middle and move this layer under your pumpkin cat layer.  Drop shadow.
MD Bat:  Resize 50% and move to the top right of your frame and drop shadow.

Copy your tube and paste as a new layer.  image resize 50% and again by 70%.  All layers not checked.  Move to the left side of your frame and move this layer between your devil and tomb layers.  Drop shadow.

Open paper of choice.  I am using MD-P4.  Copy and close the original.  Paste as a new layer.  Layers>load/save mask>load mask from disk and find your Vix Halloween 906 mask.  Source Luminance, fit to Canvas, Invert Transparency unchecked and Hide all mask checked.  Load your mask.  Merge group.  Duplicate layer and merge down.  Image resize 105%.

Add any other elements you like.  Once happy with you tag, add your copyright and name as save as png.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and I would love to see your results.
