Forum Style tut: Masquerade

 Ok guys bear with me here this is my first tut ever. If you have any questions or and suggestions for improvements please let me know :)

Supplies I used:
Tubes are by Sky's Scraps and you can buy the from SATC Here
Kit called Christina was made for me by the awesome Wicked Princess and can be purchased exclusively at PSP Asylum Here
Song lyrics used for the tags are from the song Masquerade by Clan Of Xymox
Filters used: Eyecandy 4000 Gradient glow and Glass 

Here goes nothing..I will try the best I can to explain my steps. I would love to see you result if you try it. I love seeing other people's take on a tut.

Open a new image size 650 by 250 transparent.
Flood fill black.

Copy and Paste WP_CA_Drips.
Move towards the top of the tag to your liking.
Effects, Edge Effects, Enhance more.

Using the rectangle tool foreground nil, Background I used B01A20. Add a large rectangle covering the bottom 3/4 of image. Convert to raster layer.

Selections, Select all, Float, Defloat. Copy and paste paper 15. Selections invert. Delete. Change layer properties to Hard Light.

Copy and paste your first tube UNDER this rectangle layer but ABOVE the drips. Move to the upper right hand corner so only the part you want is showing. I tend to be a sucker for eyes so that is how I positioned my tube :) Drop shadow of your choice. I used 5,5,75,5.

Copy and paste your main tube and move to the left side. Dropshadow.  I used 5,5,75,5.

Copy and Paste element WP_CA_RIBBON. Resize by 50% then 75%. Center element between you tubes on the line where your paper and background meet. Drop Shadow 2,2,50,5.

C/P WP_CA_HOURGLASS resize by 35%. Repeat drop shadow. Move to bottom right of tag.

C/P WP_CA_FANCYFAN. Resize by 30%. NO DROP SHADOW. Move to bottom right slightly overlapping the hourglass.

C/P WP_CA_MASK. Resize by 30%. Sharpen. Add Drop shadow 2,2,50,5. Move UNDER your fan layer to hide the handle if desired.

C/P WP_CA_GOBLET. Resize by 35%. Dropshadow 2,2,50,5. Move slightly UNDER your fan layer. Duplicate goblet. Move slightly up and to the left.

Add background text. I used Aquarelle. Black. Apply eye Candy 4000 Glass. Here are my settings...Just use a color that works for your tag.

Then eye candy 4000 Gradient glow. I used color cb4949. Here is a screenshot of my settings....

Add drop shadow 2,2, 50, 5.

I moved this text layer above my paper layer and fit it between my tube and elements.

Add name repeating same steps as above and fit it to your banner.

Don't forget your copyright and watermark. Hope this works out for ya :)
