Funky Puddicat - Dianna


This tutorial was written by Dianna Richards of Digicats (and Dogs)/Di Before Dawn Tutorials. Any resemblance to any other tutorial, published or unpublished, living, dead or undead, is purely coincidental.

Please do not rebroadcast, redistribute or otherwise claim this tutorial or any part there of as your own work.




Items you will need to complete this project:

The Funky Fresh taggers kit by Puddicat Creations. This is part of the Funky Fresh Collab at Stargazer Scraps, which is free with a $10 purchase at the store.

Tube of choice. I am using Cat, by Eugene Rzhevskii. This is a PTU tube, and you must have a license to use this tube, which is available at Pics for Design.com.

Mask of choice. I am using the Grunge53 mask by Nik's Scripts & Scraps which is part of her PSP Masks Mega Pack.

Font(s) and/or alpha of choice. I am using Century Gothic which is a Windows System font. If you do not have it, you can download it HERE.

I am also using the Red Passion alpha by Creative Crazy Scraps. This is a free to use alpha that may be downloaded at the link provided.




Note that H# and V# refer to horizontal and vertical coordinates on your canvas ruler grid. Make sure you have View -> Rulers checked in order to see the ruler grid.

When I say "Add to your canvas" I expect that you will copy and paste it as a new layer, unless otherwise stated in the tutorial.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP. It was written using PSP X3, but should work in PSP 8 and up.

To begin, open a new raster layer canvas, 800 x 800 pxl, flood fill white.

Open paper of choice. I am using pdc_paper8. Layers -> Load/Save Mask -> Load Mask from Disk and select mask of choice. I am using Grunge53. Make sure the fit to canvas box is checked, then click on load.

Edit -> Copy Special -> Copy Merged and add to main canvas, centered.

Open pdc-flower2 and add to main canvas, centered at H300, V00.

Open pdc_frame2 and add to main canvas, centered.

Open pdc_flower3 and mirror. Add to main canvas, centered at H350, V500.

On the materials pallet, set both your foreground and background colors to rose (#a3002a). Using font or alpha of choice, add copyright information to the tag. For the Cat tube, that information is:

©Eugene Rzhevskii www.picsfordesign.com PFD_(License#)

I am using Century Gothic, 4 points, bold and centered. I have also added the optional background credits and tagged by info at this point, and have centered my information at H400, V740.

Starting with the first flower layer, Raster 2, on the layers pallet and working upward, add a drop shadow to each of the element on you main canvas, except for the copyright layer. I am using offsets - vertical and horizontal - of 5 each, opacity of 75%, blur of 15, and color dark red (#400000).

You should now save the artist's version of your tag as a .pspimage file.

Using font or alpha of choice, add desired name to tag. I am using the Red Passion alpha by Creative Crazy Scraps (thanks Stu!). I have centered my name at H250, V100, and added a drop shadow to match the one used on the rest of the tag.

Drop the white background layer and merge visible. Resize to 75%, and save as a .png file and you are all done.

Items you will need to complete this project:

The Funky Fresh taggers kit by Wench Designs. This is part of the Funky Fresh Collab at Stargazer Scraps, which is free with a $10 purchase at the store.

Tube of choice. I am using Emo Babe, by Very Many. This is a PTU tube, and you must have a license to use this tube, which is available at Pics for Design.com.

Mask of choice. I am using the Grunge60 mask by Nik's Scripts & Scraps which is part of her PSP Masks Mega Pack.

Font(s) and/or alpha of choice. I am using Century Gothic which is a Windows System font. If you do not have it, you can download it HERE.

I am also using the Red Passion alpha by Creative Crazy Scraps. This is a free to use alpha that may be downloaded at the link provided.




Note that H# and V# refer to horizontal and vertical coordinates on your canvas ruler grid. Make sure you have View -> Rulers checked in order to see the ruler grid.

When I say "Add to your canvas" I expect that you will copy and paste it as a new layer, unless otherwise stated in the tutorial.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP. It was written using PSP X3, but should work in PSP 8 and up.

To begin, open a new raster layer canvas, 800 x 800 pxl, flood fill white.

Open paper of choice. I am using Paper1. Layers -> Load/Save Mask -> Load mask from disk and select mask of choice. I am using Grunge60 by Nik's Scripts and Scraps. Make sure the fit to canvas box is checked, then click on load.

Edit -> Copy Special -> Copy Merged and add to main canvas, centered.

Open Doodle6 and add to main canvas, centered.

Open Frame3 and add to main canvas, centered.

Open tube of choice. I am using Emo Babe by Very Many. Hide the text and background layers, then Edit -> Copy Special -> Copy Merged and add to main canvas, centered. With your selection tool set to rectangle, replace, select the part of the tube from the V500 line down and delete. Make sure you get all of the bottom part of the tube, as some the graphic falls outside the canvas area.

Selections -> Select None.

Relocate the the remaining portion to H425, V375.

on the layers pallet, right click on Raster 3, the frame layer and duplicate. Right click on the Copy of Raster 3 and go to Arrange -> Bring to Top.

With your selection tool set to rectangle, replace, (feather 2), select the top half the frame layer copy and delete.

Open Dangler2 and resize to 75%. Add to main canvas, centered at H190, V420.

Open Ribbon2 and resize to 75%. Rotate right. Add to main canvas, centered at H400, V600.

Open Flower2 and resize to 50%. Add to main canvas, centered at H250, V550.

Open Flower3 and resize to 50%. Add to main canvas, centered at H350, V650.

Open ButterflyBow2 and resize to 75%. On the layers pallet, click on the frame layer, Raster 3, to activate. Add the Butterfly Bow to the main canvas, centered at H600, V250. Image -> Free Rotate -> Rotate Left, 17 degrees.

click on Raster 6, the dangler layer and go to Arrange -> Bring to Top.

Open Sandals3, and resize to 75%. Add to main canvas, centered at Ht600, V600. Using your eraser tool, erase the bit of the ribbon that falls below the bottom of the sandals.

Return to top layer

On the Materials pallet, set both your foreground and your background colors to dark red (#400000). Using font of choice, add the copyright information to the tag. For the Emo Babe tube, that information is:

©verymany www.picsfordesign.com PFD_(License #)

I am using Century Gothic, 4 points, bold and centered. I then fit text to path to circle around the outside of the frame. It is beyond the scope fo this tutorial to explain how to do that, but you may find a separate tutorial covering that subject HERE.

Starting with Raster 2 on your layers pallet, add a drop shadow of choice to each of the elements on your main canvas except for the frame copy and the copyright. I am using offsets - vertical and horizontal - of 5 each, opacity of 75%, blur of 15 and color dark red (#400000).

You should now save the artist's copy of your tag as a .pspimage file.

Using font or alpha of choice, add desired name to tag. I am using the Red Passion alpha by Creative Crazy Scraps (thanks Stu!). I have centered my name at H550, V600, and add a drop shadow to match the one used on the rest of the tag.

Drop the white background layer and merge visible. Resize to 75%, and save as a .png file and you are all done.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. If you should have a problem, please feel free to E-Mail Me and I'll be happy to help you out.
