Native- FTU

I've used the lovely PTU artwork of Elias Chatzoudis. You can purchase his art HERE.
This is an FTU kit called Thanks, by myself. Visit my blog to get it HERE.
The mask is by Binty but since I altered it, it is included in my supplies, which are for personal use only and can be downloaded HERE. Add the mask to your mask folder.
Font used is Goombella.


Let’s Begin!

(Note: this is a full size kit so resize everything to 800 pixels before you copy and paste to your canvas.)

Open a new canvas at 800x800 pixels.

Open Indian Feather Frame from my supplies.
Copy and Paste it onto your canvas.

Open paper9 from kit.
Resize it to 800x800 pixels.
Go to your canvas and select the magic wand tool.
On the frame layer, select the inside of the frame.
Expand the selection by going to
Selections>Modify>Expand- 5
Copy and Paste your paper as a new layer.
Selections>Invert, and hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Selections>None
Move the paper layer below your frame.

Copy and Paste your tube on top of the frame as a new layer.
Arrange it to the left of the frame as shown.

Open the basket from my supplies.
Copy and Paste it above the frame layer.
Resize and arrange it to the left of the tube as shown.

Copy and Paste it below the frame.

Apply the mask named Bintys-Twi-Meadow.

Resize and arrange it to fit as shown.

I used the font Goombella. I set it to 72 pixels and a stroke width of 6.
Foreground color to #faf2cd and background color to #31231d.
Duplicate the layer and select the second font layer with the font tool.
Set the stroke width to 0.
Merge the 2 font layer and convert to a raster layer.

Drop shadow everything except the mask.

Merge everything in Layers>Merge>Merge Visible

Animation
To animate it, save your tag and open it in Animation Shop.
Right click the tag and click Duplicate Selected.
Duplicate your tag until you have four frames.

Open the animated flame from my supplies.
Copy the flame animation by going to
Edit>Select All, Edit>Copy

Click your tag and select all by going to
Edit>Select All
Then paste your animation by going to
Edit>Paste>Into Selected Frame
Paste the frame to the bottom right of the tag, by the tube.

You can now view your animation and save as a GIF.



All Finished!
