This tutorial was written by me on 12 December 2010. Any similarity to other tutorials is not intentional.




Supplies:


Tube and close up of Choice. I am using the art of José Cano. If you want to use the same tube you must purchase a license and the tube at MPT.

Scrapkit - I used an awesome kit by Pink Princess which you can purchase HERE The kit is on special for 75 cents until Christmas Day!


Filters - Xero Porcelain, Eye Candy 4000 gradient glow.


Font of choice, I used Whisper


Bling Animation of choice





Let's start!

Open a new canvas 600 x 250, floodfill white. Copy and paste a paper of choice, I used a striped one. Crop. Adjust blur, gausian blur, 15. Effects, texture, sandstone with these settings (sorry, my print screen button isn't working for some reason):

Blur - 80
Detail - 50
Luminence - 14
Angle - 185
Colour (pick one to suit your tube).


You will need to play around with these settings. I tried this with 3 different papers & got totally different results.

Effects, Xenofex2 Constellation with these settings:

Star size - 7.09
Size variation - 29
Edge star density - 1
Overall star density - 2
Overdrive - 100
Twinkle amount - 79
Twinkle rotation - 45

Keep original image


Copy and paste your tube as a new layer. Effects, mura meister copies, line, default settings. Lower the opacity to 18 - 30 depending on your tube.

Copy and paste your tube again & move it to the left. Effects, Xero Porcelain at the default settings but lower the blue channel. Drop shadow.

Copy and paste the cat, re-size 40%, drop shadow.

Copy and paste the pawprints, re-size 80%, drop shadow.

Copy and paste a dark paper of choice for your border. Crop. Selections, select all, modify by 5, delete. Layers, new raster layer, floodfill with a contrasting colour. Selections, select all, modify by 1 & delete.


Add your name. I used a darker pink radient glow on mine.

Now, add your artists credits and you are finished!! If you want to add any animations, copy merged & paste into ani shop. Duplicate your tag so you've got the same number of frames as are in the animation. Edit select all on both the ani & the tag, and drag the ani into place.


For your avatar, hide the border layer, credits & your name, copy merged. Open a new canvas 150 x 150 and paste as a new layer. Image re-size 80%, image mirror. Move it around until you like the bits showing! Crop.

Add the same borders.

Add your name & copyright to tag & AV & you're finished!
