Into the City Night

I appologize - the tube used in the above image is no longer available for new sales.
I have used an alternative tube that I think works just as well below:

1 tube of choice - In the top image I used Esmeralda - the artwork of KatNKDA which is no longer available. In the bottom image I used the beautiful artwork of Barbera Jensen which can be purchased here
Font of Choice - I’m using Aquarelle here
Vab’s Mask 111 here
“Angel Dust” is a PTU art kit created by KatNKDA. It can be downloaded from her store NK Art Shop. You can visit Kat’s blog here.
Thank you Kat for another beauty packed kit!

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Open up a transparent 700 X 700 canvas.
Flood Fill white.
Copy and paste Element 20 as a new layer.
Resize 25% and 60%
Move into position toward the top of your canvas.

Copy and paste Element 47 as a new layer.
Resize 35%
Free rotate right 15 degrees
Move into position over Element 20
In your layers pallet move the duplicate below Element 47.
Highlight the top ribbon layer and use your Magic Eraser to erase parts of the ribbon to give the effect as if Element 20 is wrapped around it.

Close out your white background layer.
Merge Visible.
Reopen your white background layer.

Copy and paste Element 7 as a new layer.
Resize 25% and 60%
Move it into position so that it looks as if it’s hanging from Element 47.
See my tag for reference.
Duplicate and move the layer above your merged layer.
Highlight the original and click inside of it with your Magic Wand.

New Raster layer below the original.
