Egg Hunt


Egg Hunt
This tutorial was written by Jenny on 4/19/11. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the artwork of Francis Mary. You need a license to use her artwork. I have a license through MyTagArt.
Please check her site for new licensing information.

Supplies Needed:
1 tube of choice
Spring Template by annaica HERE
Scrapkit of choice (I'm using Hoppy Hearts PTU by Nitwit Collections)
DBV Mask 11 by Designs by Vaybs
Font of choice (I'm using DumbAss and FG Dorotea for wordart and Valerie for name)

Open template, new raster layer, move to bottom, flood fill white.

New raster layer, move above the first new raster layer, select with magic wand, open up paper of choice, copy & paste into selection, select none, apply mask, duplicate.

Hide copyright info.

Select silversquareback, selections, select all, float, defloat, new raster layer, flood fill with color from tube, add noise (70) select none, hide original.

Repeat on purplebar, purplesquaretop, purplesquarebottom.

Select purplesquareback, selections, select all, float, defloat, new raster layer, flood fill with another color from your tube, select none, hide original.

greysquarebottom and greysquaretop, select each, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy & paste paper of choice as a new layer, selections, invert, delete on each paper layer, select none, hide originals. If you're using the same kit as me then open paper heartspink and resize 500 pixels then copy & paste and follow the rest of the steps above.

Select bluebar, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy & paste paper greendots as a new layer, resize 50% twice, selections, invert, delete, select none, hide original.

Pinkleftcircle and Pinkrightcircle, selections, select all, float, defloat, open paper stripe and resize 500 pixels, copy & paste as a new layer, selections, invert, delete, select none, hide originals.

Silverrightcircle and silverleftcircle, selections, select all, float, defloat, new raster layer on each, flood fill with color of choice (I used pink), selections, select none, apply noise (70) to each, hide originals.

Select bluecircle, selections, select all, float, defloat, open paper floralyellow, resize 600 pixels, copy & paste as a new layer, selections, invert, delete, select none, hide original.

Hide SPRING wordart. Use (fonts) to create new saying (I used "It's time for an Egg Hunt")

Copy & Paste tubes of choice and rearrange to your liking. I added the cat to the egg and drop the opacity to 50.

Open basket, resize 500 pixels on the longest side, copy & paste as a new layer on your canvas, resize 50%, then again 65%, free rotate right 25 degrees, move over to the right, see my tag, add drop shadow.


Open up any of the eggs you want to use, if using the same kit as me then you'll need to resize to 200 pixels on the longest side, copy & paste each onto your canvas, resize each by 50%, place to your liking, add drop shadow.

Add any other accessories you'd like to add and place them to your liking.

Now go back and delete all layers that you x'ed out before.

Hide background and mask layers, any accessories and tubes you added.
All that should be left are the new template layers and the tube that you drop the opacity on.
Merge these layers visible, rename "main".
Unhide all the other layers.
Resize "main" 90% and sharpen.
Then move it upward just a bit to your liking.
You may need to adjust all other accessories just a bit.
Now resize the canvas. I resized mine to 600 pixels on the longest side.
Merge visible and sharpen.

Add copyright info and text.

Now you're ready to save.

I hope you've enjoyed this tut! I'd love to see what you create!
