Daty, there are no words that can express my gratitude for your generous offer that you gave me all your stationery and tutorials, with lots of love, Zial.

 

Here you can see how a Stationery looks.

This tutorial was made in PSP 9, but can also be made in the other versions.

Save your work often, because the lesson is a bit long.

 

Here you can download the materials.

It contains: 3 tubes - 1 gradient - 1 brush (Feines Haar)

You need a gold pattern of your own.

Party, Jena and BodyTR, thank you very much for your beautiful tubes.

 

Here you can download the plugins:

Filter Factory Gallery J

Filters Unlimited 2.0

Distortion Filters

If you have placed everything in it's folder, you can start :-)

 

Step 1

Set your foreground to gradient "Woman" - Linear - Angle 90 - Repeats 1.

Set your background to a gold pattern of your choice - Angle 0 - Scale 100.

Step 2

Open a transparent image of 600 x 350 pixels.

Flood fill your image with the gradient.

Adjust - Blur - Gaussian blur - 20 - see image below:

Step 3

Activate your Ruler: View - Rulers, so you can work precisely:

Your image should look to the side like this:

Activate your Selection tool - Rectangle.

Custom selection:

Left 0 - Top 50 - Right 600 - Bottom 100.

(Image is reduced.)

Press delete.

Custom selection:

Left 0 - Top 150 - Right 600 - Bottom 200.

Press Delete.

Custom selection:

Left 0 - Top 250 - Right 600 - Bottom 300.

Press delete.

Your image should look like this:

Effects - Plugins - Filter Factory Gallery J - Blas Em Blur - set Diffuse at 40.

Step 4

Layers - New raster layer.

Flood fill with your gradient, but now Invert checked:

Layers - Arrange - Move down.

Activate the top layer.

Effects - Plugins - <I.C.NET Software> - Filters Unlimited 2.0 - Distortion Filters - Whirl - Whirl at 15.

Lower the Opacity of this layer to 60.

Layers - New raster layer.

Set your gradient to Linear - Angle 52 - Repeats 2 - Invert not checked - see image below:

Step 5

Copy tube "Moon".

Back to your working image.

Activate your Selection tool:

Draw a rectangle of 200 x 250.

You can see that at the bottom:

Flood fill the selection with your gold pattern.

Selections - Modify - Contract - 1 pixel.

Flood fill the rectangle with your gradient (if that's not working, just add a new layer and after colorize it, merge down).

Selections - Modify - Contract - 1 pixel.

Step 6

Layers - New raster layer.

Paste into the selection (the tube Moon is still in the memory).

Selections - Select none.

Layers - Merge - Merge down.

Effects - 3D Effects - Drop shadow - with these settings:

Vert 2 - Hor minus 6 - Opacity 70 - Blur 16 - color black.

Duplicate this layer.

Image - Resize - 60% - All layers not checked.

Place this one left and in the middle of the big image.

Layers - Duplicate.

Place it right of the big image - see main image.

Step 7

Copy tube "Jena".

Paste as a new layer on your working image.

Image - Resize - 60% - - All layers not checked.

Place her right, at the big picture.

Activate your Erase tool - feines Haar - with these settings:

Erase carefully the lower edge of the woman.

Selections - Select all - Selections - Float.

Selections - Modify - Expand - 1 pixel.

Step 8

Layers - New raster layer.

Flood fill the selection with your gold pattern.

Layers - Arrange - Move down.

This gives the woman a gold edge.

To make it easier, I copied my layer palette,

so you can see how your layer palette should look like:

Selections - Select none.

Activate your top layer.

Effects - 3D Effects - Drop shadow - with these settings:

Vert minus 10 - Hor 8 - Opacity 78 - Blur 16 - color black.

Step 9

Copy tube "BODYTR".

Paste as a new layer on your working image.

Image - Resize - 60% - All layers not checked

Place the tube between the large picture and the small left picture.

Adjust - Hue and Saturation - Colorize - with these settings:

Step 10

Repeat step 7.

Give the same Drop shadow.

Layers - Merge - Merge all (Flatten).

Copy your crea.

Step 11

Image - Add borders - 1 pixel - white.

Click with your Magic wand this the white border.

Flood fill the selection with your gold pattern.

Image - Add borders - 1 pixel - background color (#212546).

Image - Add borders - 1 pixel - white.

Click with your Magic wand this the white border.
