Witchypoo - I put a Spell on You! (PTU)
WitchyPoo I put a spell on you - PTU
I am using the cute Kit WitchyPoo from Gina of KiKeKa Kits you can get yours at Scrappin' Brats here
Begin by Opening a a few elements of your choosing from the kit... this is a personal choice... this tutorial is only meant to be a guide, but I will tell you the ones I have chosen for the most important parts of the tut.
Open a new 600 x 600 transparent image.
In your color palette, you should choose your paper of choice (I have selected paper02) to make a pattern in your background and fill properties. In your foreground properties have a solid color from your paper selected. With your line style solid, and the width set to 7.00 draw an oval onto your image. Leave it as a vector image for now. Objects - center image on canvas.
Insert a new layer. Make your background fill properties the same color as the foreground. With your Font Selected (I am using Rapscallion size 20), hover over your oval until your see the A with the semi-circle under it. Make sure to be near the top center of your oval and type whatever Halloween saying you'd like. I chose I put a Spell on You - hence the name of the Tut.
Select a Witchypoo tube from the kit (I have chosen number 3) leaving her the regular size, use your eraser tool to erase her body to about her armpit area, and erase the Copyright from this one too. Copy and paste as a new layer on top of your Oval. On your oval layer select all - float - defloat - invert selection - modify expand by 7. Click onto your layer with your head and hit the delete button 3 times. Select none. Blend mode = Luminance (Legacy) Opacity = 55.
Back on your Oval layer Use the filter VM Natural - Starmaker at the default settings. Click OK. Using VM Natural - Sparkle with the settings of Max size=20, random seed=67 - the rest leave at default.
With the same settings - on head layer VM Natural - Sparkle.
Open up the element grass01 - paste as a new layer - use your pick tool to position it how you would like behind the oval. Duplicate the layer and mirror it. Merge the two layers.
Open both elements called Hallow Trails re-size to 64% and place them on the same side paste them as a new layer on the right side of the oval (behind the grass) Merge these layers, duplicate and mirror.
For the rest of the tag - I used various elements placed them where I saw looked good - resizing each with my pick tool (settings = Scale).
You should do the same... From here I think you should use the elements of choice.
Place your name on the tag use font of choice (I used Windsong - with a gradient using two shades in your paper). For best results save it as a .png file.
Hope you enjoyed the tut!!
