My friend Becca (found here) decided to play tube fairy yesterday after seeing me drool over some gorgeous Jensen tubes.  So I made her a pretty tag and turned it into my second tutorial.

Tutorial written by Mavy Storme
Just a note but if you are new to PSP you might not fully understand this tutorial as sometimes my thoughts do not come out quite the way I mean for them to when I write them down and I can be very hard to follow. I will explain to the best of my ability and hopefully you can follow my thoughts.

Kit: Exclusive kit from the Tagger’s  Den by Alika’s Scraps found here.
Tube: Barb Jensen’s tube layered 23 found here
Mask: my own mask , see image below, and WeeScotsLass mask 148 found here

Font: Edwardian Script, and Pixlette for copyright
Plug ins: Eye candy 3.1 glow and drop shadow, Lokas Software 3D shadow, Plug in Galaxy Noiseee, Xero Friltillary
PSP Version: I use X4, but if you have a good knowledge of psp you should be able to use any version

I usually open everything I’m going to use while to create the tag right then, some I actually use, others I tend not to, depends on how the tag turns out.  In this case, I didn’t use everything I opened but I’ll give a list of just what I opened: as paper 5 and 11, as09, as73, as24, as73, as36, and as60, and my word art that you’ll find just below.

(To see a larger size and save click on the image and then right click)

Now let’s see if I can explain how I made the tag…

To start open a new paper 600X600 with a transparent background and make sure your DPI is 72.000.  It can be cropped/resized before you put your copyrights on later if you don’t like the size.

Get as paper 05 and copy and paste on your new image.  Make sure the TD mask is in your masks folder and you can go to selections, load mask from disk, otherwise you’ll have to open it on your workspace and go to layers, new mask layer, and make sure you select td mask.  See image for reference.
Next merge group and resize to 50%.

Copy and paste your second paper (as paper 11) as a new layer to the new image (your tag).  Go to selections, load mask from disk and use WSL_Mask 148.  Merge group and move the image below your TD mask layer.  Go to effects, Zero, Fritillary.  See settings below.

Go to your Ellipse tool (the oval on the preset images tool) and make sure your colors are white and white. On your presets make sure your image is an oval.  Make an oval about the width of the WLS mask, but not quite as tall.  Convert it to a raster layer, flood fill it a dark red, go to effects, Plug in Galaxy, Noisee.  See the settings on the image below.

Get element AS09 copy and paste under the TD mask layer, resize to 50%
Get element AS73 copy and paste as top layer, resize to 75%.
Get element AS24 copy and paste under the beaded circle layer.

Copy and paste your tube as the top layer, resize to 65%.  Go to your move tool, move the tube slightly to the left so that you can see the skull and rose just beside it.  Then go to effects, Eye candy 3.1, and use a drop shadow on it.  See settings in image.

  If you want to make it look a little neater, you can erase the slight shadow just under the edge of the bottom of the legs.

Get element AS60 copy and paste, and resize to 50%.  Move to the bottom right of your tag.  Effects, Lokas 3D shadow.  See settings in image.

Get AS36, copy and paste it, then resize to 75%.  Move it down under the layer with the TD heart, and then move it over to where it is just slightly under the wings.  Try to get it as centered as possible.

Copy and paste the word art to your tag, go to your move tool and move it to the top right corner of your mask as the top layer.  You’ll want to let it be slightly above the mask just for looks.

Add your copyright credits, I use pixlettte at size 10, with anti-alias off, and stroke width at 0.  I convert to raster and add a glow (eye candy 3.1).

After that you can use your font and give it to your friends!

Hope you enjoyed and made use of this tutorial, thanks for looking!
