Bluetonic- PTU

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

You can use a tube of choice.
I've used an FTU tube by Ronne Barton which was available at MPT but is no longer there.
This is a PTU kit called Bluetonic by Seven’s Scraps. You can visit her blog for links to her stores HERE.
The mask is WSL_Mask359, by Wee Scot Lass. You can get it HERE.
Font used is Aquarelle.


Let’s Begin!


Open a new canvas 800x800.

Open paper 12 from kit.
Copy and Paste it as a new layer.

Copy and Paste your tube as a new layer.

Open frame02 from kit.
Copy and Paste it as a new layer.
Resize it slightly if needed so that the tube fits within frame.
Using your magic wand tool select on the outside of the frame so the extra space outside of the frames are selected.
Go to Selections>Modify>Expand, and expand by 2.
Select your tube layer and hit the Delete button on your keyboard to delete the excess.
Select the paper layer and hit the Delete button.

Add your mask by going to Layer>Load/ Save Mask>Load Mask from Disk.

Merge the mask group by right clicking the layer of the finished mask, go to Merge>Merge Group.

I used the font Aquarelle. Use a size you like and a stroke width of 3.
Foreground color to white and background color to #3b54a1.
Duplicate the layer and select the second font layer with the font tool.
Set the stroke width to 0.
Merge the 2 font layers and convert to a raster layer.

Drop shadow everything except the frame.
Effects>3D Effects>Drop Shadow, set the drop to 3 vertical, 2 horizontal, 75 opacity, 4 blur.

Crop and Resize as you like.
