This tut is written using a beautiful PTU kit created by Fantasy Dreams Designz http://fantasydreamsdesignzs.blogspot.com/ called Bunny which can be purchased at Heartbeatz Store. It was written using PSPX, but is adaptable to any version and is for people with a good working knowledge of PSP.
No additional supplies needed
Animation Shop (optional)
Open a new image 600 by 600, fill with white. Select all, add new raster layer, c/p FD_Paper16 into selection, image/resize to 60%, all layers unchecked. Effect/distortion/ripple with these settings Horizontal/Vertical 60.00, Amplitude 80, Wavelength 26.00, Repeat is ticked. Effect/texture effects/mosaic antique with these settings Number of columns/rows both 60, Under Mosaic settings 60, 4, 60.
Open FD_Element41, resize to 80%, c/p as new layer, image/free rotate, left 25. Move the heart a little closer to the top and a little to the left. Add a nice drop shadow.
Open Bunny_PoserweltbyAngelaW. I made a selection of the poser from the top of the ears to right below her butt. C/P as new image, resize to 85%. C/P as new layer and move her to the left.
Now we will build our flower spray. Open FD_Element73, resize to 85%, position and rotate a little to the right with the deform tool. Open FD_Element74, resize to 85%, select the top three leaves and some of the stem, c/p it as new image. Now c/p these leaves here and there down the stem of Element 73 to add a little contrast of color. Open FD_Element50, resize to 50%. C/P at the top of Element73, duplicate and position new layer over to the right and down a bit, duplicate, mirror and position in the cluster of flowers with green leave and move a bit down farther on the stem. You can rotate these flowers a bit to match up the stems with the stem of Element 73. Open FD_Element35, c/p as new layer and position as shown in my image. Open FD_Element36, resize to 75%, position on the top right curve of the heart. Now close all layers from the poser to the bottom of the layer palette. This should leave all the different parts of the flower spray open. Merge visible. Add a drop shadow.
Open FD_Element12, 20 and 21. C/P the bunny in a hat as shown. Then c/p the mushrooms each on its own layer, duplicating one of the light and one of the darker mushroom layers. Arrange your mushrooms into a little cluster on the bottom of the image making sure that one on the right covers the bottom stem of the flower spray and the one on the left covers the straight bottom edge of the poser. They should also be covering the hat the bunny is in. Add a drop shadow on each of the five layers. Closing all layers except the top five, merge visible.
Add your text. The font I used is called Black Chancery, size 85, stroke set to 2. I used a light pink from the image for the stroke and a darker pink from the image for the fill. Position your text and add a nice drop shadow. Now add the copyright information that was included on the poser and your watermark. With all layers open, merge visible.
Now open FD_Element79 and 80. You can position and resize a few of the butterflies here and there on your image. I used four of them, but you can add however many you want. Closing the bottom layer, merge visible. Add a nice drop shadow. If you do not want to animate the tag, export as jpeg and name it, then you’re done!
If you wish to animate it like I did, duplicate your top butterfly layer twice. Highlight the top layer, Adjust/add remove noise/Add noise, uniform is ticked, monochrome is checked, noise 28. Close the top layer, highlight second layer, use same setting to add noise except noise should be set to 33. Close the second layer and open the third layer. Same settings again except noise should be set to 38. Highlight the bottom layer and crop as close to your image as you can without cutting off any of the drop shadows.
Leaving the bottom layer open, open the top layer, close the second and third layers. Edit/copy merged. Paste in AS as a new animation. Close top layer and open second layer, copy merged, paste in AS after current frame. Close second layer in PSP and open third layer, copy merged, paste in AS after current frame. Click on file/save as, name your image, save. You’re done!
