A Sorta Fairytale- PTU

Download this tutorial in a PDF file.
I've used the lovely PTU artwork of Zindy Nielsen. Get it on her Site.
This is PTU kit called A Sorta Fairytale from Designs by Sarah. Get it at PMTw/S.
I used two masks!
One mask is Vix-Mask365 by Vix PSP.
The other is MaskEmo1 by Sky Scraps.
Font used is Shalimar Swash ROB.


Let’s Begin!

Open frame4 from kit.
Copy and Paste it as a new layer.

Copy and Paste your tube below the frame.
You may need to resize your frame a little to fit the tube,
if you’re using the same tube as me.
Erase any portion of the tube hanging outside the frame.
Layers>Duplicate
Adjust>Blur>Gaussian Blur- 3
Change the blend mode to Soft Light

Open paper pp9 from kit.

Resize it to fit the frame slightly so that most of the colors show through.
