**CT PTU TUTORIAL - Vamp Night**

*This tutorial is written by me using Photoshop CS6 but any version will work.
Any similarity to any other tut is coincidental.*

Tube of choice. I'm using the artwork of Verymany.
You must purchase a license to be able to use their work.
You may do that at VMT store.
Kit of choice. I'm using PTU kit 'Darkest Night'
by Tiny Turtle Designs. You can find it HERE.
Template of choice - DD_Temp_Behave
Mask of choice - WSL_Mask3
Font of choice - PR-Uncial Creepy

Let's get started...
Open template and hide or delete info layer. Go and click on the
last layer - red bottom rectangle. From the kit past Paper 26, right
click on the paper layer and Create Clipping Mask. Make a copy of
that layer and move it above red top rectangle layer. Roate paper for
180 and make CC mask. For the purple bottom rectangle use Paper 15
for CC mask. Click on the layer purple top rectangle and past Paper 17,
right click on the layer and CC mask. For white circle use Paper 20.
Then click on the layer purple circle and use Paper 2 for CC mask.
At the top right corner place Element 22, resize to be bigger and if
needed use Eraser Tool to remove extras. Past Element 191 and place it
at the canvas left side, Drop Shadow with Opacity on 35%. On it add
Element 150, shadow. Now behind left top circle place Element 39.
Click on the layer large yellow circle and use Paper 6 for CC mask.
Open the tube and place close up in the circle. Create Clipping Mask
with the tube layer and set Blend Mode to Overlay with Opacity on 75%.
You'll get that rustic effect on the tube. Then hide or delete layers:
yellow circles grouping and dotted circles grouping. Now from the kit
past Element 84, resize and place it to the right side, right under the
moon, shadow. On it add Element 150 with shadow on 35%. Then on those
two place Elements 159, 191 and 192 in that order with shadow on all.
Now at the canvas bottom place 2 copies of Element 73, no shadow.
Place full size tube then and erase a little of her legs. Make a copy
of tube layer. For the original tube layer add Drop Shadow with
Opacity on 55%. And for the tube copy layer add Filter - Gaussian Blur
5,0 pix and set Blend Mode to Overlay with Opacity on 45%. Now at the
bottom of the canvas place 3 copies of Element 107, shadow on 35%.
Above it, at the right side, place Element 120 with shadow. And on the
left side Element 180. On both of them add a copy of Elements 84 and 150
with shadow on all. Now between those past Element 154, shadow. On it
place Element 6 and at the bottom right Element 11 with shadow on both.
Now we gonna add some elements on the freame around the rustic close
up tube. For that use Elements 150, 84 (x2) and 122 with shadow on all.
Click on the layer behive options white and add Stroke - size 1, color
black and Color Overlay - red (c50000). The other one leave as it is.

Now let's add mask:
Open your mask as new image.
Mask layer will be called 'Background' and will be locked. 
Double click on same layer, press OK. Layer name will be 'Layer 0'.
Add a new layer above it and flood fill with color of choice,
or use a paper from kit. I use Paper 25.
Click on mask layer and hold CTRL+A to Select All, CTRL+C to Copy.
Click on the paper layer, hit Q to turn on Quick Mask mode. 
CTRL+V to paste the mask. It should now be kinda red.
Hit Q to turn off Quick Mask mode
and there should be shown selection on your canvas. 
Hit the Add Layer Mask.
On paper layer, right click and Convert to Smart Object.
Right click again and Rasterize Layer.
Drag completed mask to your tag canvas as the bottom layer.
Resize it if needed.

Add proper copyright and your name on tag.

Hide or delete bottom 'Background' layer. And save your tag as .PNG file.
That's it! Thank you for reading. I would love to see any tags made with this tutorial. You can past the link here as comment or send them to me on al3x_v@ymail.com
