Avast! Me Hearty!
This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to use your own choice of tube and scrap kit to make your tag unique. If you want your tag to look just like mine then use the same supplies I have used. This tutorial assumes you have knowledge of paint shop pro. Any resemblance to any other tag or tutorial is purely coincidental.
Tube is a commission by Lady Mishka for Scraps N Company called Pirate Joey. You can purchase her at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=490_554&products_id=19815
Scrap kit is an awesome kit by Bibi’s Collection. It is called Be My Pirate and you can purchase it at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=19814
Mask of your choice. I am using mask 1 from Vix first set of big masks. You can download them at http://vixpsp.blogspot.com/2011/03/new-masks-for-2011-vix-big-set-1.html
Font of your choice. I am using Zombis Nigth. This is a PTU font.
Drop shadow used throughout:
0 0 50 12.00 black
Open paper 6 and shift+D to duplicate. Close the original. Promote the background layer to a raster layer. Re-size if you wish. Make your canvas large enough to give you plenty of room to work with. Apply the mask of your choice. Delete the mask layer and merge the group.
Open element 74 and re-size by 75%. Copy and paste as a new layer and place going from top middle to bottom right. Add a sharp drop shadow to give it a 3D look.
Open element 137 and re-size by 50%. Copy and paste as a new layer and move to the bottom of the mask area. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 114 and re-size by 50% and then again by 65%. Copy and paste as a new layer and drag under the sand layer. Move to the far left so the front of the boat is hidden by some of the sand. Image flip horizontal. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 116 and re-size by 50%. Copy and paste as a new layer and drag under the sand layer. Move to the bottom along the bottom of the boat but above the sand. Image flip horizontal.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size. Move to the far right side. Add a drop shadow.
Now lets dress it up with some of the elements from this kit. I will list the elements I used. Feel free to use any elements that I have not used if you wish. Placement is completely up to you. If you want your tag to look like mine then use my tag for reference.
