PTU Tutorial "With Love"

I have a new PTU tutorial using a Scrappin Krazy Designs kit, With Love, that is part of a charity collab. You can find out more about it on her blog. I used a FTU tube by Zindy, which you can find here.

**This tutorial was written by me and any resemblance is purely coincidental. It is written for those with a working knowledge of Photoshop.**

What you will need:

Lovers Quarrel by TypeSETit
You can download it from FontSpace.

Temporary Peace
FTU tube by Zindy
You can download it from her site here.
*You still need a Zindy Zone license number to use this FTU tube.*



Alright, let's get started!

Open a new canvas, size 650x650.

Move ele21 on the canvas and rotate so it is vertical. Resize just a little and add a drop shadow.

Move p08 behind the frame and resize so just a little sticks outside the frame. Erase the extras.

Place the tube behind the frame and on top of the paper. Resize so it sits nicely inside the frame. Erase any little parts that stick out. No drop shadow necessary.

Take ele28 and place it on the right side of the frame. You will need to make it smaller so it can sit on the frame and have it stick out evenly on both sides. Place it lower than the middle of the frame. Add a drop shadow and duplicate then flip horizontally. Move the duplicate across the frame to the other side. Duplicate the copy two more times and and move those two to cover the frame.

Now take ele55 and place it behind the flowers on the right side so it goes up the frame and sticks off a little. You will need to resize and erase parts that stick out below or off to the sides. Add a drop shadow, duplicate, and move to the other side.

Place ele48 behind the white flowers. Add a drop shadow so it is easier to see. Flip it vertically and have it round out the bottom of the flowers. Duplicate it and flip it horizontally on the other side. Duplicate it again and resize so it's smaller than the original two and fill the empty space under the flowers in the middle.

Move ele37 and place it over the ribbon where it dips, resize it and add a drop shadow.

Place ele32 on the other side and place it over the ribbon. Resize it and add a drop shadow.

Move ele20 on to the white flowers in the middle, resize, and and add a drop shadow.

Place ele11 on top of ele20. Resize so it's not larger than the heart and add a drop shadow.

Now use ele60 as the mask. Place it behind the frame and resize so there is room to fit it on there twice. Have one copy stick out the right side and one stick outside the left side. In the blending options select color overlay and use color code #9272b1. No drop shadow necessary.

Let's start the name. Again, the font is Lovers Quarrel. Use the color code #7c5ba2 for the fill. Add a white stroke, size 3, add a drop shadow, and a white bevel using Linear.  Place it over the flowers on the left.

Add your tagger mark and copyright information.

Crop off any extra background. Be careful not to cut off any parts of the tag or mask.

Save as a .psd and .png.

I hope you enjoy the tutorial and thanks for helping with the charity collab!
