This tut is written using a PTU kit created by Puddicat Creations  called Gothic Love which can be purchased here at Scraps With Attitude.   It was written using PSPX, but is adaptable to any version and is for people with a good working knowledge of PSP.

No other supplies or filters used! And just as a reminder, when you are opening a new element, shiftD and close the original before any manipulation.

This kit is comprised of elements using shades of two very contrasting colors.  When brought all together, they go together beautifully.  I will leave the actual choice of colors you use up to you and just state which type of element I’m using. J

Open frame pd_frame01, 02 or 03, resize to 60%. Open pdc_flower1 or 2, resize to 30%. C/P the flower as a new layer and move it to the very top and middle of the frame, duplicate, move second flower to the 2 o’clock position on the frame which should make it overlap the top flower a bit and also the middle of the right side. Duplicate this layer, mirror.  Close off your frame layer then merge visible, duplicate and flip.  You should now have a nice flower wreath.  Merge visible again, open your frame layer. Drag the flower wreath below the frame. Add a nice drop shadow to your frame.

Open pdc_flower13, resize to 65%, c/p somewhere on the top left of your frame, duplicate, mirror and move down and to the left. Open pdc_flower14, resize to 65%, move and place it somewhere in the cluster of the first set of flowers. You can arrange these three layers as you like them. Open another flower14 and resize to 30%, image/free rotate/right/free/72. Move to the bottom right of the frame, erase any stem that is showing over the frame, but let the flowers overlap it. Duplicate this layer and move it up to the top right of the frame, erasing any stem that is overlapping.  I also duplicated the flowers again, but erased all but two and added them to the cluster on the bottom right. Add a nice drop shadow to each layer of flower layers.

I used one of the medi posers included in the kit.  If you choose to do so, you must abide by her TOU and add her copyright which is ©Medi Open medi_cecelia8, resize to 80%. C/P as a new layer and position it where you want it, add a nice drop shadow.

Open pdc_heart12, resize to 30%, c/p as new layer, move to upper right of the image. Open pdc_key1, resize to 50%, mirror, c/p as new layer, move to the upper right, overlapping the heart a bit.  Drag this layer below the heart. Add a drop shadow to both new layers.

Add your text, watermark and copyright information.

With all layers open, merge flat, export as a jpeg and you’re done! Easy-peasy and cute!

Hope you enjoyed this tut.  Thanks for trying it!
