FTU Clovers Tutorial

Written on the February 17, 2017 by Debbie Priest

This tutorial was written in PSP X but can be done in any version. This was written assuming you have working knowledge of PSP. Any resemblance is purely coincidental.

My tutorials are only meant as a guide.

Supplies Needed:

Font of Choice.

FTU Fabulous Scrap Kit  "Clovers" by Lori's PSP Graphics. It is made Exclusively for The Creative Chick's Forum. If you are a member you can get it there, otherwise you will need to join and be an active member Here

Please check out Lori's Blog for a large assortment of masks. She also has a few kits Here

Tube of your choice - I am using the Fantastic artwork of ©Fiodorova Maria. You need a license to use this tube, please do not use this tube without a proper license.
You can get it Here

Mask: WSL_84 by Wee at Weescotslass Creations. You can get it Here

Plugins:  Xero Porcelain
        Eye Candy 3.1 Glow

Drop Shadow throughout is 1, 1, 50, 4.00 Black.

On to the Tut!!

* Open up a New Image 700 x 700. You can resize later. Flood fill white.

* Copy and paste paper 10. Layers, load mask from disk. Apply WSL_Mask 84. Layers, merge group. Duplicate, mirror, merge down. Duplicate, flip. Merge the two.

* Copy and Paste Shamrock Frame 4. Using your magic wand, click inside the frame. Modify, expand by 10. Open up paper 11. Move to where you want it. Copy and paste as a new layer. Selections, invert, delete. Drag this layer below your frame. Drop shadow frame. Merge down.

* Copy and paste tube. Resize to your liking. Drop shadow. Adjust sharpness, sharpen.

* Copy and paste elements of choice. DS all. I used:

Shamrock Frame. Place above mask layer.
Bling Diamonds
Shamrock trail on bottom of Shamrock Frame 4
Shamrock Balloons
Shamrocks with coins. Duplicate, mirror. 
St Patrick Heart
Horseshoe 1
                     Shamrock Vine. See my tag for placement.                   

* Add any other elements you wish anywhere along the way.

* Close out the background and mask layers, merge visible. Keep closed. Rezize 96%.

* Effects, plugins, xero, porcelain 50, 80, 128. Ok.

* Adjust sharpness, sharpen.

* Crop if desired.

* Resize all layers checked to 700 x 700 or desired size. I always resize before adding the copyright. It makes the copyright clearer.

* Add your name, copyright info.,  proper license # (if needed), and watermark.

* Merge visible and save as PNG file.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.
