Wings Of Enchantment
This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to use your own choice of tube or scrap kit to make your tag unique. If you want your tag to look just like mine them 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 completely coincidental.

The beautiful scrap kit is by Amy Marie’s Kits. It is called Fairy Garden. You can purchase it at http://amymarieskits.com/store/
Cloud brushes of your choice. You can find some awesome brushes at http://www.deviantart.com/browse/all/?section=&global=1&q=cloud+brushes

**NOTE: This is an animated tag and choosing to animate or not is completely up to you. There are many ways to animate tags and accomplish different animations. I simply show the way that I do it however if you know of a different way to accomplish the same thing then feel free to do it your way. **
Open paper 12 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 room to work with. Apply the mask of your choice. Delete the mask layer and merge the group.
Open our tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Position within the center of the mask area. We are going to build the tag out around the tube. Re-size if needed. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 67 and copy and paste as a new layer. Drag under your tube. Move to the bottom so your tube is standing on it. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 107 and re-size by 85%. Copy and paste as a new layer and drag under the leaves layer. Move to the bottom behind the tube and the leaves. DO NOT ADD A DROP SHADOW to this layer.
Open element 148 and copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the far right of the tag behind your tube. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 116 and re-size by 65%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the bottom left of the tag in front of your tube. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 91 and copy and paste as a new layer and drag under the water element. Place behind it but so you can see it. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 60 and copy and paste as a new layer. Move so it appears to be hanging from the right side of the archway. NO DROP SHADOW ON THIS ELEMENT.
Open element 50 and re-size by 75% 2x. Copy and paste as a new layer and place behind the water element but in front of the grass and to the right closer to your tube. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 41 and re-size by 60% and then again by 75% 2x. Copy and paste as a new layer and place in nearly the same place as the last element but so it is showing out the left of the water element. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 11 and re-size by 50% 3x and copy and paste as a new layer and move to the bottom in front of the right side of the archway. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 96 and re-size by 50%. Copy and paste as a new layer and place at the bottom on the right side of the water element. Add a drop shadow.
Layers new raster layer. Apply the cloud brush or brushes of your choice. Drag down to under the archway and of course position at the top of the tag.
Open element 138 and re-size. Copy and paste as a new layer and place so it appears to be sitting on the water element feature to the left. This is the part we are going to animate. DO NOT ADD A DROP SHADOW.
Add your name.
Add your copyright and licensing information.
Now let’s get ready to animate:
Crop your tag.
Hide the butterfly layer.
Merge visible all other layers.
Layers new raster layer and drag to the bottom and flood fill with white.Unhide your butterfly layer and copy it and open animation shop and paste as a new animation. Go to Effects Insert Image Effect and select compress. Use the settings below:
Select all frames in the butterfly animation.
Back to psp and hide the butterfly layer and edit copy merged the other 2 layers. Open animation shop and edit paste as a new animation. Take note of the amount of frames in your butterfly animation. Should be 8. Duplicate your tag frames to have the same amount. Select all frames. Go to Animation and frame properties and change the value to 20. Now grab the first frame of the butterfly animation and drag it onto the first frame of the tag. Once you have it where you think you want it let go of your mouse button. View your animated tag. If you are happy then optimize and save. If you are not happy you can undo and redo until you are happy.
Once you are done re-size your tag if needed/wanted.
You’re all done!!
