Alice




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

The kit is called “Sanguine Alice” by SkyScraps.
This is an awesome kit, I loved it, you can get it here.

You will also need a mask, I used Gem’s mask 22, here.

Font is Alice in Wonderland, here.





Don’t forget to sharpen up those elements after resizing 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 85, blur 10.



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

Open SkyScraps-SA-pp1 and copy.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask, resize 85%.

Open SkyScraps-SA-E50 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 75%.

Open SkyScraps-SA-pp6 and copy.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand and expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below it and paste the paper into the selection, deselect,  apply the drop shadow to the element and merge it down onto the paper.

Open SkyScraps-SA-E55 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 85% and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-SA-E41 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-SA-E34 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-SA-E10 and paste as a new layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-SA-E76 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65% and position on top of the castle.

Open SkyScraps-SA-E77 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 55% and position over the tree.

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

Open SkyScraps-SA-E4 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 25%, drag down below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-SA-E5 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-SA-E16 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70% and place in position.

Open SkyScraps-SA-E9 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-SA-E24 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I erased the part of merged E50 and paper layer that showed below this element.

Open SkyScraps-SA-E49 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-SA-E1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-SA-E2, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 35%, 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.

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial, if you have any questions, please email me here.  As always, I would love to see your result and include it in the gallery!
