Crowe Halloween Collab #4 (K.I.T.)

This tutorial will be a little bit different from the rest of my tutorials.

I don't use templates a lot, but once in a while I find one I like.

OK. Let's get started.

First you will need to visit Dangerously Delicious Designz to grab the template I am using

The one I have chosen to use is Collab #2

Open the template and Shift+D to duplicate the template, so you don't use the original.
Close the original template.

The nice thing about templates is you can pretty much do what you like with them.

I am going to use a kit to create my tag, but you don't have to.

The kit I chose to use is part of Arthur Crowe's 2014 Halloween Collab by Niqui's Designs
This fantastic collab is available for $5.00. Go and grab one now!

With the template open start flood filling or use the papers in the kit you are using.

I used a variety of papers from the kit I chose.

They are:
Paper 1
Paper 2
Paper 3
Paper 4
Paper 7
Paper 10

To use papers, Go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat
Choose a paper and paste as a new layer. Invert and hit delete on your keyboard. Select None.

Do this with each element on the template, until you are happy with the result.

If you choose to flood fill the different elements, you would repeat the steps above,
but add a new layer before flood filling, then select none.

To save on size, delete the original layer you replaced with the paper or flood filled layer.


Now add a tube of your choice.

I chose Colorful Halloween by Arthur Crowe. I purchased this tube from PTE which is no longer open.
Arthur has a wonderful website offering even more of his artwork. Visit his site at Arthur Crowe's Factory

Place your tube choice where you would like. I placed mine close to the center.

I added color to the words with Eyecandy 4000 Gradient Glow. I used #d63795 for the color.

Now start adding your elements to create your tag!

I used Elements:


Once you are happy with the layout of your tag, SAVE!

Don't forget to add any last minute drop shadows if you wish!

Resize tag if you would like as well!

Add Copyright information, your license and your favorite font for the name!
The font I used is Fiddums Family

I usually save in .png but please save your final result in your chosen format.
