Loving Steampunk

CT/PTU tutorial for Pink Paradox Productions Using her scrap kit Steampunk Twilight.



The creation of this tutorial is my own any resemblance to any other tutorial is strictly a coincidence.
Do not copy this tutorial or claim it as your own. If you would like to share it, please share the link to the site this is posted on ONLY.
This tutorial is written using Adobe Photoshop CS5 and is for those with a working knowledge of Photoshop. This tutorial can be adapted for anyone with a working knowledge of PSP.

Before we start, I will say drag and drop elements onto your canvas. In Photoshop it is possible to do this instead of having to copy and paste like you do in other programs. But if you are more comfortable copying and pasting, then by all means do what is easier for you. I also use a white background while I’m making my tag but I delete it when I am finished.

Supplies needed:
Pink Paradox Productions Steampunk Twilight scrap kit. You can find where to buy it here.

The tube I’m using is Jose Cano’s Exclusive Steampunk tube. You can get his tubes here at Scraps and The City. Remember, you cannot use any of tubes without a license.

Mask: melwdfwife Steampunk mask #1 get it here. Be sure to leave her thanks if you download her masks.

Font used is Cinderella. You can use any font you want though.

Open a canvas 600x600

Open element 26. Reduce width 71.9%, height 69.8% and rotate –9.9. Place in the center of your canvas on top of the mask.

Open your tube place in the center of your canvas. Add an outer glow and drop shadow using the default setting in your blending options.

Open element 32. Flip horizontally. Reduce 45.2%. Place opposite of element 40. Add a drop shadow.

Open element 114. Reduce 22.4%. Duplicate and place one the right side of element 116. Place the other on the left side. Add a drop shadow.

Open element 45. Reduce 33.4%. Place on the lower right side of your canvas. Add a drop shadow.
