Blood Lust Halloween

Tube of choice - I am using the artwork of Ismael Rac available to purchase from Xeracx here
Scrapkit - a great kit from Scraps Dimensions called 'My Gothic Hour' which you can download here
Mask is also by Doris at Scraps Dimensions and you can find it here
Thank you!
Fonts of choice - I am using Halloween2, Romati and Bloody
all available to download from Dafont
Plugins - eyecandy gradient glow, xero porcelain
OK - open a new image 600x600 floodfill white
add a new raster layer & select all
copy a paper of choice from the kit & paste into selection, select none
apply the mask, delete & merge group
copy the grave and resize by 75% twice, image mirror & apply a drop shadow of choice
Paste your tube as a new layer and position, drop shadow
resize the moon and position behind the grave
copy the lightning layer and position over the grave, resize
I used my freehand selection tool with feather set at 25 to remove the sharp edge
just draw around the edge and hit delete a few times, select none
resize the bat and spider, position the bat in the moon and the spider on the web
resize the cat by 50% and position at bottom of grave
apply a gradient glow to the cat using a colour from your tag
resize the tombstone & position
hide background layer & merge visible
resize by 85% and apply xero porcelain at default settings
unhide background
add your words of choice and apply a gradient glow
do the same with your name
