Black Widow





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

I am using an awesome kit called “Pink Poison” by
You can get the kit here.
Thank you Schnegge, I loved working with this kit!

You will also require a mask,
I used Wee Scot’s Lass Mask 318, here.

I used the font Campanile
which is a free font, here.



Don’t forget to sharpen your elements after resizing/rotating to take away the blurriness (effects – sharpen – unsharp mask – radius and clipping 5, strength 30).



Open a new transparent canvas 600 x 550 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open one of the papers, duplicate and close the original, I used p16_PinkPoison_Schnegge. Apply the mask to the paper, copy and paste as a new layer on your canvas, resize 90% and apply a drop shadow, vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 80, blur 3.

Open frame11_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Apply a drop shadow vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.

Open frame01_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%.

Open p19_PinkPoison_Schnegge and copy. Select the interior of frame01 with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame layer and paste the paper into the selection, do not de-select.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, resize as required and position it inside the frame, invert the selection and delete the excess. Lower the opacity of this layer to around 45%.  Go back to the frame layer and apply the same drop shadow as you did for the first frame.

Open moon_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%, drag down below the frame layers, place in position and apply the drop shadow changing the opacity to 50.

Open leaf02_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 70% and rotate 20 degrees to the right. Place in position and apply the drop shadow changing the opacity back to 80.

Open bow02_PinkPoison_Schnegge, paste as a new layer and bring to the top. Resize 70%, place in position on the top right hand corner of the top frame and apply the last drop shadow.

Open corset02_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%, place in position and apply the last drop shadow.

Open flower03_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 50%, place in position on the bottom, left hand corner of the top frame and apply the last drop shadow.

Open candle01_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer, resize 60%, place in position and apply the last drop shadow.

Open frog_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 30%, place in position on the top corner of the frame and apply the last drop shadow.

Open hat_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow changing the blur to 3.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer. Resize as required, place in position and apply the drop shadow changing the blur back to 5.

Open a couple of the flowers, resize and position behind your tube. I used flower02_PinkPoison_Schnegge, mirrored and resized 80% and flower04_PinkPoison_Schnegge resized 50%. Apply the last drop shadow to each of your flower layers.

Open BlackWidow_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow with the blur set to 3.

Crop your tag and resize if required then add your copyright information and text. I made a pattern from the corset for the background on my text.
