FTU Pretty Pumpkin Picker

Pretty Pumpkin Picker was written by Myself on 4th September 2013. It is my own idea and creation. Any similarity to any other tag or tutorial is co incidental.

Supplies Needed

Tube of choice. I have used the beautiful artwork of Caron Vinson available at  CDO

Gorgeous Ftu Scrap Kit is 'Autumn Spice' by Teresa at  Topcats Tagz

Mask Dbv85 by Vaybs at  Designs by Vaybs

Font used is Black Lightning

Open a new image 700 x 700. 
From kit, C/paste element 4 - Tree re sized to 110%. D/shadow.

Above this layer C/paste the Fence element 28 re sized to 85%. Move slightly lower down on the canvas. D/shadow.

Above the Fence layer c/paste Element 12 Branch re sized to 75 %. Rotate right by 20 and position on the lower right side of tag along the bottom of fence. Duplicate, Mirror copy to the left and merge layer down. D/shadow. Duplicate this merged layer add a gaussian blur of 5 and move below the fence layer, moving up the canvas slightly. Now duplicate this layer - Image -  flip and move down the canvas so it  shows below the first (original) layer. I used eraser tool to remove the stray leaf at the bottom on each side.

C/paste element 34 leaf Scroll re sized to 65%. Position above fence and branch layers on the left side of canvas. Duplicate and Image - Mirror copy to right. Merge layer down and d/shadow.

C/paste you tube and position to your liking above all other layers. D/shadow.

With your tube in place work desired elements from kit around tube and layers already in place and d/shadow to your liking. I used ....

34 Sign Post - 70%. Left of tag. Behind Scroll leaves.

26 Owl - 35%. Left of tag. Above Sign Post.

18 Pumpkin - 40%. Position bottom left above Branch behind scroll leaves. Duplicate, re size 80% and Image - Mirror. Place this copy behind the Branch. Duplicate again and re size 80% - Image - Mirror. Position copy 3 behind other copies, in front of Sign Post.

30 Sunflower - 50%. Rotate right by 16 degrees. Position bottom right of tag behind tube layer. Duplicate and mirror copy to the left side of your tube move it up slightly so there not quite symmetrical.

6 Pine cone/Berries - 30%. Bottom right, behind tube and Sunflower layer. Duplicate and Image - Mirror copy to bottom right side of tube.

22 Falling Leaves - 45%. Above tube layer.

Mask Layer - At the bottom of layer palette, C/paste paper 5 re sized to 70 %. Load mask from disk - Fit to layer. In layer palette delete mask and merge group. Re size to 95% and position to your liking. Apply - Effects - Texture Effects - Mosaic Glass with settings below.

Duplicate the mask layer and re size by 70%. Change the colours of this layer using Adjust - Color Balance -Manual Color Correction. My source was a brown taken from original mask layer and my target was the eye colour taken from my tube. Play around with the colours until you get the effect you like. Reduce opacity of first mask layer to around 90.

Merge all layers. Crop/re size to your liking. I usually sharpen at this point rather than each separate element as I go along. Adjust - Sharpness - Unsharp Mask 5.0 - 30 -5.
Add name and relevant artist copyright and tube licence info.
Save as Png.
