Temptation




In this tutorial I am using the art of Elias Chatzoudis.
You require a license to use Elias’ art,
you can get one here.

I am using an awesome kit by Schnegge's Scraps called
“Temptation”
which will be available to purchase on 12th July.
Thank you Schnegge!

You will also require a mask.
I used Wee Scotts Lass’ mask 4
which is in the first set,
you can get it here.

The font I used is Evernight Stargazer
which is a free font.



As always, don’t forget to sharpen your elements after resizing and rotating, I wont tell you every time, learn to do it automatically (adjust – sharpen – unsharp mask, radius and clipping 5, strength 30).

We will use the same drop shadow on all the elements and our tube – vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.


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

Open one of the papers and copy it, I used p15_Temptation_Schnegge. Make a new layer, select all, paste the paper into the selection and apply your mask.

Open frame_06_Temptation_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Rotate 90 degrees to the right. Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, make a new layer below the frame and fill with colour #dcc64d.

Open glitter02_Temptation_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 80% and place in position. On the glitter to make it extra sharp, I used the unsharp mask setting twice. Apply the drop shadow.

Go back to your frame layer and apply the drop shadow.

Open vine01_Temptation_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, place in position on the left hand side of your frame and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open cande01_Temptation_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open bow05_Temptation_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open bow08_Temptation_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 50% and place on top of the first bow, apply the drop shadow.

Open flower05_Temptation_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 40% and duplicate. Drag down below the bow layers, place the flowers either side of the bows and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open flower07_Temptation_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 45% and duplicate. Drag down and place either side of the last flower layers, apply the drop shadow to each.

Open bottle_Temptation_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 40% and rotate 10 degrees to the right. Place in position to the right hand side above the green flower and apply the drop shadow.

Open razorblade_Temptation_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open grapes_Temptation_Schnegge, paste as a new layer and bring to the top. Resize 50%, rotate to the right 70 degrees, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open apple01_Temptation_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open frog_Temptation_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. I just love frogs!! Resize him 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open key_Temptation_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 25%, drag down below the frog layer and place the key in his hand, apply the drop shadow.

Go back to your mask layer and use the pick tool to pull the sides in a fraction.

Crop your tag and resize if required. Apply your copyright information and text and export as a jpeg with compression set to 5.
