ok 4shared is making me nuts, but I have finally gotten the png repaired & redone the zip & uploaded it to a new link because the old link refused to be replaced or deleted!
I am so sorry for the mess

Enchanted Garden Mushroom 11

I'm not sure how mushroom 11 got corrupted, since the original file is fine, but rather than mess with the zip, I've simply uploaded the individual png file
I've checked the download & it's fine
I appreciate everyone's patience with the problems I've had getting this kit to you.

hoping 3rd try is the charm

I don't know what is going on with the sharing links, except that it might be connected to multiple zips in a single file, so I'm trying again with individual links

I've checked these to make sure they work.

New Link for Enchanted Garden

Media fire has changed how their service works & I cannot get a valid link to the file I uploaded, so I've uploaded to 4shared http://www.4shared.com/dir/24151879/b5927794/enchanted_garden.html
I apologize for the inconvenience.

DSO colour challenge - Enchanted Garden

I finally completed this month's colour challenge at DSO - Enchanted Garden is a kit that grew - 24 papers & 213 elements. I was inspired by a pack of MediEvil Creations' posers that were on sale that I picked up & I included some of them in this kit.
Hope you like it.
IMPORTANT - please see the following posts, the 2nd post on Monday for corrected download links & the first post on Tuesday for corrected element download. I apologize for any inconvenience.

So Bad It's Good tag

Leather N Lace is the first kit by Naughty Angel that I've worked with, but hopefully not the last. As a tag kit made at 72 dpi it's not suitable for quick pages (sorry), but has plenty of potential for a variety of tags.
The minute I saw it I thought of the poser by MediEvil Creations based on the character Jessyka from the cartoon movie Who Framed Rodger Rabbit ("I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way")

Tutorial for “So Good It’s Bad” tag

What I used:
Tag kit by Naughty Angel’s Creations Leather N Lace http://digifoxsstudio.net/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_107&products_id=1583
Poser by Med evil Creations http://tkoscraps.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=33_125&products_id=2375
Paint Shop Pro XI with pick tool activated for easy resizing of elements

What I did:
1. Open a new transparent canvas 700 pixels x 700 pixels.
2. Use circular selection tool to create a circle. Fill with background of choice (paper 1).
3. Select a background element. I used a cracked heart (element 62). Copy & paste, positioning in the center, adjusting for size as needed. Apply drop shadow (Effects>3D effects>drop shadow).
4. Select a corset (element 8). Copy & paste, resizing as desired. Apply drop shadow.
5. Choose a poser (Jessyka 4). Copy & paste, resizing as desired, & positioning to the side. Apply drop shadow.
6. Select other desired elements (element 20-heart, element 26-lipstick). Copy & paste, adjusting & positioning as desired. Apply drop shadow to the elements.
7. Apply text in chosen font (Cataneo 12). Use a smaller font size (4) for tag information.
8. Merge visible & save.

I love how it turned out. Hope you like it.
