This tutorial is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tuts is purely coincidental. This tutorial is for personal use only, using it for monetary gain is against our TOU's.

Supplies Needed:

~Gimp (any version will do).

~Candy Gothic PTU scrapkit by Wicked Princess Scraps, which will available for purchase soon at PTE HERE.

~Tubes of choice. I used the artwork of Lix, you must have a license to use this art. You can purchase this art from PTE HERE.

~Template of choice. I used the Stalking template which you can get from Redneck Tuts by Savage HERE.

~Font of choice. I used Valentina JF.

Let's get started!!!

1. Open a new layer ( I prefer a large canvas, so I make mine 1050x656). Make your canvas transparent (Layer > Transparency > Color to Alpha).

2. Open template in PSD format, remove and move layers of template around until they are the way you like them.

~Add paper from scrapkit to individual layers of the template (Right click on template layer in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select paper layer in layer box > Delete).

These are the papers I used:
Paper 2
Paper 3
Paper 8
Paper 9
~This template comes with many options of artists to "stalk", Lix was not one of them so I added the "Lix" text using the Valentina JF font.

~I added noise to some of the template layers to make them look glittery (Filters > Noise > RGB Noise).

~I colorized some of the template layers to better match the scrapkit (Colors > Colorize > play with the setting until you get the desired color).

~Add drop shadow to template layers (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow).

3. Open tubes, I used both a full body and a few close ups.
~Open the full body tube, add drop shadow.
~I changed the mode on the 2 larger close-ups to Dodge (at the top of your Layer Box you will see where it says Mode, click the arrow and select Dodge from the drop down menu). I changed the mode on the 4 small close-ups to Burn (follow same steps as above).
~The close-up tubes have been added to the template in the same way you add paper (Right click on template layer in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select tube layer in layer box > Delete) do this for each tube layer.

4. Open and place the following elements:
Flame
Balloon x2
Boot
Tophat skull
Flower 3
Ipod
Bear
Cupcake 2
Spiked heart
Cup
Bow skull
~Some of the elements may need to be sized down. Using your scale tool in your tool box adjust the pixel size until element is the correct size~

~Add drop shadow to all elements~

5. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers).

6. Crop Image (Image > Autocrop Image).

7. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image).

8. Add copyright info and name.
9. Save as .png

ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!
