Queen of Hearts






In this tutorial I used the art of Elias Chatzoudis.
You need a license to use Elias’ art,
available here.

The kit I used is no. 04 in the EC Artist Series by
Love anything to do with Alice and this kit is no exception!
Thank you Cora.
You can get it here.

You will also need a mask, I used Weescotslass’ mask 84, here.

Font is Alice in Wonderland, here.


 
Don’t forget to sharpen up your elements after resizing/rotating as otherwise they will be a little blurry; check out my Tips and Tricks page for more info.

I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 70, blur 10.



Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open one of the papers and copy, I used pd12-pp-05.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 95%.

Open pd12-frame-01 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 75%, move up and to the right a little and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-print-01 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 85%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-card-02 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 85% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-swirl-01 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-tree and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-frame-02 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70% and rotate 15 degrees to the right.

Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10.  open pd12-pp-04 and paste as a new layer.  Drag down below the frame, resize 50%, make sure its covers the entire frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess paper.  Lower the opacity of the paper to around 45 and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position in the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-card-02 again and paste as a new layer.  Resize 25% and rotate 15 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-card-01 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 20% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-flower-01 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65%.  Duplicate and resize the duplicate 70%.  Place both flowers in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open pd12-ribbon-01 and paste as a new layer.  Flip, resize 50%,  place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-crown, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-brad and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-rabbit and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments. When you are happy, crop your tag and add your copyright information and text, then export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.
