FTU Bewitched

Bewitched was written by myself on the 9th October 2013. It is my own idea and creation. Any similarity to any other tag or tutorial is co incidental.

Supplies Needed

Tube. I have used the beautiful artwork of Jessica Dougherty. Available from CDO

Fabulous Ftu Scrap kit is 'Witches Den' by Vaybs at  Designs by Vaybs

Please don't forget to leave the designer a thank you when downloading freebies :)

Mask 451 by Vix at  Vix Psp

Font used is Zombie Holocaust

Open a new image 700 x 700. 
Starting with the mask layer. Add a new raster layer and floodfill with black. Load mask from disk - fit to layer. In layer palette, delete mask and merge group. Duplicate layer and re size 80%. Using manual color correction change the colour of this mask layer. I took a red from my tube. Merge layer down.

Above mask layer c/paste Element 19 - House re sized to 80%. D/shadow.
Above House layer c/paste Element 8 Cloud/Mist re sized to 70%. Position across the bottom of the house. Below and behind the Cloud c/paste Element 29 Grass re sized to 90%.

C/paste your tube. Position just off centre on the left of canvas and d/shadow. Now work desired elements from kit around tube layer and d/shadow to your liking. I used ....

49 Tree. Left side of canvas. Above House, behind tube and Cloud/Mist layer.

47 Hanging Stars - 30%. Position left side of canvas above Tree. To appear as if hanging from branch.

16 Tombstone - 70 %. Left of canvas. Behind Cloud/Mist, above Tree layer.

28 Rose Cluster - 105%. Bottom of canvas, behind tube above Tombstone.

38 Cat - 60%. Image- Mirror. Bottom left of canvas. Above the Cloud/Mist layer, behind tube layer.

3 Open Book - 40% Bottom left of tag beneath Cat.

82 Bat - 40%. Top right of canvas.

77 Bats - 50%. Top right of canvas, behind House layer.

37 Book Stack - 60%. Bottom right above Rose Cluster.

76 Candles - 30%. Bottom of canvas above Book stack.

69 Urn - 40%. Bottom of canvas above Candles.

20 Flower - 30% - Rotate left by 90 degrees. Position at bottom of tag above tube. Duplicate and mirror copy.

57 Web - 30%. Right of canvas, behind Rose Cluster.

73 Crow - 50% - Image - Mirror. Position on right above Book Stack.

72 Foliage - 50%. Right side of canvas, behind book stack. Duplicate, mirror copy to left and position behind Tombstone.

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.

Thank you for stopping by and trying this tutorial. I hope you are pleased with your tag.
Sal :)
