FTU - Marika Ribbon Tutorial*

Marika Ribbon


This tutorial was written by me on April 28, 2012, using my own ideas. Any resemblance to others is coincidental and accidental. This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of psp and is written in PSPX. 
Please leave some love when downloading supplies. The artists/creators work hard to make/share their work with us, so let's be appreciative.  
As always, tutorials are only a guideline. If you don't have the exact supplies, use ones you have or ones you choose. :)


WSL_Ribbon_Rope_Frame by the talented Weesscottslass 
( it’s listed as “Freebie Frame )
Mask of choice – I used mask80 by mistressv-signaturecollections
Font of choice – Mine is “Algerian”
Eye Candy – Gradient Glow
Mura’s Meister - Copies
Tube of choice – I used “Foxy” by Marika
I purchased this tube at CDO
Please do not use this tube without the proper license

In psp, open a new image 600x600.
Copy/paste tube of choice as new layer.
Effects – Mura’s Meister – Copies – Wallpaper (rotate)– adjust the number so your image covers the layer
Adjust – blur – Gaussian blur – 10
Layers – New Mask Layer – From Image – choose your mask from the drop down list
On layer palette – right click mask layer – Merge – Merge Group
Copy/Paste Ribbon Rope Frame onto canvas as new layer
With magic wand, select the black portion of frames
Adjust – Add/Remove Noise – Add Noise – Random – 1 – Monochrome
Select None
Using magic wand, select inside each frame.
Sections – Modify – Expand – 3
Copy/paste tube of choice below frame.
Place so the parts you want show thru the frames.
Right click tube layer – Promote Section To Layer
Delete original tube layer
Eye Candy 4000 – Gradient Glow _3 _ 25 _ 100 _ #7ec9f3 (or color to match your tube )
Drop shadow _ 0_0_50_10_black
Copy/paste tube onto canvas and place to right of frame
Repeat drop shadow
Add all correct copyrights and license info
Using font of choice, add your name by setting the “direction” to the red arrow on right – this will make your name go up and down
Add Gradient Glow and drop shadow
