Toxic Scare

Toxic Scare
This tutorial was written by Jenny on 10/08/2012. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the licensed artwork of Ester Durães. You need a license to use her artwork. I am licensed to this tube through Dreamscape Imaging (DSI).



Supplies Needed:
1 tube or image of choice
Scrapkit of choice (I'm using FTU Bootastic by Wicked Princess Scraps)
WSL Mask302 by Weescotslass
Font of choice (I'm using freehand written)


Open a new canvas 600 x 600 and flood fill white.

New raster layer, select with magic wand, copy & paste paper3 into selection, select none, apply mask.

Add scribble, resize 65%, place upward and to the left, I recolored mine to match my tube.

Add splash.

Add frame2, resize 70%, I recolored mine to match the tube and added a blind effect to it.

Add paper of choice, place below frame, use magic wand to select inside frame, modify, expand by 4, selections, invert, delete on paper, do not deselect, add tube or image, resize if needed, place below frame, hit delete, select none.

Duplicate tube or image, adjust, blur, gaussian blur 3, right click, play around with the blend mode/opacity until you find something you like.

Now add pumpkins, bottles and candy, resize to your liking and place to the left of the frame, arrange accordingly.

Now add bow, spider and string to top right of frame, resize to your liking. I free rotated the bow and spider just a bit. Play around until you get something you like.

Now it's time to crop down your tag, resize if needed.

Add copyright/licensing info and text and you're ready to save.
Be sure to save a blank for future use.

If you'd like to save as a transparent PNG layer be sure to hide the white background layer first.

I hope you've enjoyed my new tutorial. Please show your appreciation by leaving some love in my C-Box and/or voting for me at 1Award (link to the right). I'd love to see your results.
