On the Range
This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to make your tag unique by using your own choice of tube and scrap kit. If you want your tag to look just like mine then use the same supplies I have used. This tutorial assumes you have a knowledge of paint shop pro. Any resemblance to any other tag or tutorial is purely coincidental.
Tube is by Oky Draft. It is called Vaquerita 1 and you can purchase her at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=423&products_id=19916
Matching scrap kit is by Rieneke Designs and is also called Vaquerita 1 and can be purchased at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=19924&zenid=vgh9s05g50suodg37qtvf3fr60
Mask of your choice. I am using vix big mask 5 from this set that can be downloaded at http://vixpsp.blogspot.com/2011/03/new-masks-for-2011-vix-big-set-1.html
Font of your choice. I am using Amira Beauty. This is a PTU font.
Drop shadow used throughout:
0 0 85 15.00 black
Open paper 9 and shift+D to duplicate. Close the original. Promote your background layer to a raster layer. Re-size if you wish. Make your canvas large enough to work with. Apply the mask of your choice. Delete the mask layer and merge the group.
Open element 9 and re-size by 85% and then again by 90%. Copy and paste as a new layer and place in the center of the mask. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 67 and copy and paste as a new layer. Drag under the saloon. Move to the bottom left so it is peeking out of the bottom and will give enough room for your tube to sit on. Duplicate. Image flip horizontal this copy. Move to the far right side. Merge these 2 layers together. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 46 and re-size by 75%. Copy and paste as a new layer and place on the far right side of the saloon. Duplicate. Image flip horizontal this copy and move to the far left side. Merge these 2 layers together and add a drop shadow.
At this time lets get your tube added so you can see how you want to position the remaining elements that you add. Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size as need to make her fit nicely. Move to the bottom of the tag to sit on the leaves. I placed mine more to the left side but this is completely up to you and whatever tube you choose to use. Add a drop shadow to your tube once you are done.
Now lets add some more of the awesome elements from this great kit. I will list the elements I use and placement will be up to you depending on the tube you use I suppose. Also feel free to use elements I haven’t used. This is where you get creative and make your tag unique. Once you are done add a drop shadow to all the elements.
