Just Dance- PTU

Now you can download a PDF copy of this tutorial to do without using your internet browser.

I've used the lovely FTU tube by Irene Shpak. You can get it HERE. You still need a MPT license to use this tube. If you don’t have one, request one from customer service.
This is a PTU tagger kit called Rock Me by Cora’s Creations (Pimp'd Designz). Visit her blog for links ot her store HERE.
Font used is Toonish and Carpenter.



Let’s Begin!


Open a new canvas that’s 800x800 pixels.

Open frame-05 from kit.
Copy and Paste it as a new layer.

Open paper pp-02.
Using your magic wand tool select within the frame.
Selections>Modify>Expand- 6
Copy and Paste your paper as a new layer.
Selections>Invert, hit the Delete button on your keyboard to delete the excess.
Move the paper below the frame.

Copy and Paste your tube above the paper.
Layers>Duplicate
On the upper tube go to Adjust>Blur>Gaussian Blur- 3
Layers>Properties- Blend Mode to Soft Light

Open beads-01 from kit.
Copy and Paste it behind the tube.

I used the font Toonish for “JUST DANCE”.
Set it to a size you like and the color to black.

I used the font Carpenter for the name. Set it to a size you like, and a stroke width of 3.
Foreground color to white and background color to #7a5793.
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.
Effects>3D Effects>Drop Shadow, set the drop to 3 vertical, 2 horizontal, 75 opacity, 4 blur.

Add your copyright info and your tag.

Merge everything in Layers>Merge>Merge Visible

All Finished!
