Tutorial; how I made this graphic (basic) 

End result here.

Blending tutorial, including coloring. Really simple I guess.

Photos used: 1 2 3 4 (from Texture Pack 11)

Brushes used; 1 2. (They’re from Aethereality.net but they seem gone ;___; )

Please, do NOT remove the ‘read more’

Open a new 500X500px document.

Fill the background with the color #3d2f40

Use the magic wand to select the white part, set the tolerance to 15.

Now inverse the selection (CTRL+SHIFT+I) and copy (CTRL+C)

Paste your TARDIS in your document. Use the cursor to resize the TARDIS, hold shift to keep the right proportions while resizing.

Now use the erase tool to get rid of those ugly white/grey bits on the edge or our TARDIS.

Set the blending mode to lighten.

Set the fill to 61%

Go to your second image. 
Use the lasso tool (with feather on 1) to select Rose. Copy your selection, paste it into your work document. 

Resize the copy to the desired size. 

Use the erase tool (or the lasso-selection tool) to get rid of those ugly bits again. I’ve encircled the bits I’ve missed on my image below.

So go to your regular selection tool.

Set the feather to 20px.

Select the bottom of your Rose selection. Delete your selection.

Select some other bits (I’ve encircled them below) and delete that too. Now it will look a bit like it’s blend in with the rest…

Sharpen the Rose selection (Filter - sharpen - sharpen.)

Set the blending mode to Luminosity.

Fill to 47% 

Create a new layer;

Go to your brushes, install the brush packages from the link. (If you don’t know how to install brushes, have a look at this tutorial. More on how to use and create a brush here.)

Select the big rose brush from the ‘Butterfly Garden’ package and paste it into the left corner. Make sure your color is white.

Set the fill to 92%

Now some text. 

I’ve used the font JamesHand

The text ‘Rose’ is in 36pt, while ‘her name was’ is in 24pt.
Set to ‘sharp’
And set the line spacing to 24pt for the entire text.

Now use your cursor to tilt the text just a little bit. 

Go to the third image and select all of it, copy it to the document and resize it like displayed below.
Place it above the background and under the TARDIS layer. 

Set the blending mode to lighten. 
Opacity: 62% 

Now to to your select tool again, set the feather to 10px and select the part as displayed below. Delete that selection.

Add texture 282 from Texture pack 11. (Image 4)
Set the fill to 47%

Output levels 7 - 255

Set the blending mode to soft light.

Fill 40% 

Adjustment layers - Gradient (so NOT the same as gradient map!)

Use the same settings we’ve just used (#ffe3c5/black)

Set the blending mode to soft light.

Adjustment layers - Solid color

Set the blending mode to multiply

Fill 69%

Create a new layer. Paste the longer brush (664px) (from the ‘Flower sketch’ pack) to the right of your image.

Set the fill to 5%

Drag the text layer below the color layers. (As displayed below) Make sure the two layers with the brushes are on top of the color layers.
