Enchantress - 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 Any resemblance to any other tutorial, published or unpublished, living, dead or undead, is purely coincidental.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 ADD ON Created by Jill. 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 Enchantress, by Zlata M. This is a PTU tube, and you must have a license to use this tube, which is available at Pics for

Mask of choice. I am using the Grunge76 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 CreatedbyJill_FunkyFreshAddOn_paper04. Layers -> Load/Save Mask -> Load Mask from disk and select mask of choice. I am using Grunge76 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 CreatedbyJill_FunkyFreshAddOn_sequins. Copy and add to main canvas, centered at H200, V300.

Open CreatedbyJill-FunkFreshAddOn-glitterswirl and add to main canvas, centered at H550, V400.

Open CreatedbyJill-FunkFreshAddOn-frame2 and resize to 85%. Add to main canvas, centered.

Open tube of choice. I am using Enchantress by Zlatta M. Resize to 65%. Select the options you want, hiding the ones you don't want, to customize the tube to your liking. Then Edit -> Copy Special -> Copy Merged and add to main canvas, centered at H375, V350.

On the layers canvas, right click on Raster 4, the frame layer, and duplicate. Right click on the copy of raster 4 and go to Arrange -> Bring to Top.

With you selection tool set to rectange-replace-feather 2, select the top half of the frame layer copy, then delete.

Open CreatedbyJill-FunkFreshAddOn-ribbon1 and rotate right. Resize to 75%, and add to main canvas, centered at H400, V600.

Open CreatedbyJill-FunkFreshAddOn-bow2 and resize to 75%. Add to main canvas, centered at H500, V550. Image -> Free Rotate -> Rotate Left, 45 degrees. Flip, then relocate the bow to H325, V500.

Open CreatedbyJill-FunkFreshAddOn-dragonfly and resize to 75%. Add to main canvas, centered at H200, V550. Image -> Free Rotate -> Rotate Right, 20 degrees.

On the materials canvas, set both your foreground and background colors to black (#000000). Using font of choice, add copyright information to the tag. For the enchantress tube, that information is:

@Zlata_M PFD_(License #)

I am using Century Gothic, 4 points, bold and centered and have located my copyright at H400, V700. I also added the optional background credits and tagged by information at this point.

Starting with the sequin layer, Raster 2, on your layers pallet and working upward, add a drop shadow of choice to each of the elements on your main canvas except for the frame copy and the copyright layers. I am using offsets, vertical and horizontal of 5 each, opacity of 75%, blur of 15 and color dark blue (#000040).

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 H500, V550, 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.
