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).

~Love Birds PTU scrapkit by Tasha's Playground which you can find HERE.

 ~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of PinUpToons, you must have a license to use this art which you can now get HERE.

~Template of choice. I used DD Your Kiss template which you can get HERE.

~Font of choice. I used CAC One Seventy.

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, 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 1
Paper 5
Paper 7
Paper 9
Paper 10
Paper 11

~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 tube, add drop shadow.

4. Open and place the following elements:

Doodle 2
Flags
Flower 1
Flower 7
Tape 1
Clip
Star
Star 2
Bird 1
Bird 2
Bird 3
Bracket 1
Key
Flair 1
Label

~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 (except Doodle 2)~

5. Crop Image (Image > Autocrop Image).

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

7. Add copyright info and name

8. Save as .png

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