"Queen of the Castle" PTU Tutorial

I'm a huge fan of Game of Thrones and when I first saw this prepaid tube at PicsforDesign, I just had to chip in for her because she reminds me so much of Daenerys Targaryen. Here's my tutorial with this gorgeous tube and an awesome kit called "Capture The Castle" by Pink Paradox Productions.

This Tutorial was written by me, any resemblance to another tutorial is completely unintentional.
PSP version used: PSP X5
Exclusive(Princess&Dragon) by Zlata Ma. You must purchase tube and have a PFD license
to use it.

"Capture the Castle" by Pink Paradox Productions

Casual Script

Eye Candy 4000> Gradient Glow

WSL_260 found HERE

Let's get started! :) Open up a new canvas size 625 x 625 and then open up your tube layers. Resize to 600 px on the longest side, and then copy and paste into your canvas.
Next you will open up the element PPP CTC (66) and C&P and position behind your tube. Then, use your Pick tool to resize it to where it's all inside of your canvas. Open the element PPP CTC (67) and position behind every other layer. Duplicate 3 times, and then merge down, until it is one non-transparent layer. Resize to where it only shows in the middle of element PPP CTC (66) and erase any excess that is on the outside, with your eraser tool.
Now to add the other elements, use your Pick tool to resize them to your liking.
From top to bottom and left to right, I used the following:
PPP CTC (132)
PPP CTC (39)
PPP CTC (121), duplicated twice
PPP CTC (129)
PPP CTC (20)
PPP CTC (62)
PPP CTC (75)
PPP CTC (71)
PPP CTC (42)
PPP CTC (32)
PPP CTC (74)
PPP CTC (53)
PPP CTC (125)

Resize and position everything where you want it, and then it's time to add the mask.
I opened up paper PPP CTC P (7) and resized to 700x700.
Then I went to Layers>Load/Save Mask...
and choose your mask of choice. I used WSL_260.
I then resized it height wise to where it's a bit rectangular and the leaves at the top of the paper are mostly cut off. Then Merge Group, and C&P. Resize to where it's all on the inside of the tag, so there are no cut offs.

Next is the name. I used Casual Script at 48 px, Bold, and Anti-Alias is Smooth. I grabbed the color for it off of the prism element PPP CTC (71), #5f1946.
Type out your name,  convert to raster layer,
and then go to Adjust> Add/Remove Noise> Add Noise...
I used these settings:

and then used Eye Candy 4000> Gradient Glow with Basic settings at 3.00, 25, 100
and used these colors #d5ebeb and black for the outside (#000000):

Now add the drop shadow of your liking to ALL layers but the mask, to make everything really POP! :)

Add your copyright and you're all DONE!
