For this tutorial you will need a working knowledge of PSP. I use PSP 9.
Supplies: This wonderful scrapkit is called Springtime from Bits N Bobs and you can get it
Tube of Choice: I am using a gorgeous tube from Rachel Anderson which you will need a licence to use. Those tubes are sold here
Mask of Choice
Template is from Babes Designz here
Thank you all for sharing your talent with us!
Fonts of Choice:Underground and Brush Script MT
Now before we start remember that this tut is only a guide, your imagination and talent will make this tag your own!
Open your template in PSP. Make a duplicate and close the original. Delete the copyright layer.
Now go to image and canvas size - resize 650x50 white or depending on your forum you may choose to x out the background and we will resize later. Delete the copyright layer
Choose a colour or paper I used paper6 and coloured it to match the tube,then copy and paste as a new layer.
Go to Layers-Load/Save Mask-load mask from disk, choose your mask.
Merge group. Duplicate the mask layer go to the original- blur-gaussian blur-15.
On each layer copy and paste papers (I coloured these to match my tube) or flood fill with colours of choice, the easiest way on each layer I find is to select all-float-defloat-invert delete
and delete the original layer(if using papers). On each layer I used an effect from Eye Candy 4000.
Drop shadow as you wish.
The tube I used had two different layers so I made one smaller and clicked inside
the circle layer and inverted and deleted to fit. Then I mirrored the larger tube to sit outside.
Next I added all the embellishments coloured to suit the tube and drop shadowed everything.
I then typed the word BEAUTY in large letters under the tube layer so it looks like she's sitting on top of it. I added a drop shadow and used Eye Candy 4000 Water Drops with the same settings as before.
I now resized my tag to make it a little bit smaller and then added copyrights.
Add your name and x out the background if you wish
and save as a PNG or a JPEG and you are done!!
Thank you for trying out my tut any similiarities to any other tuts is by coincidence only or great minds think alike..lol
