Beware Of Pirates
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.

Drop shadow used throughout:

Open a new blank canvas that is going to give you plenty of room to work with. You can always crop and re-size when we are done.
Open paper 4 and set it as your background color. Turn off your foreground color. Using your preset elipse shape tool draw out a fairly large oval in the center of your canvas. Once you are happy convert to a raster layer.
Selection select all float and defloat. Open the close up of your tube or if your tube does not have a close up just your tube will do and copy and paste as a new layer. Position her face within the selected area. Once happy selections invert and hit delete. Leave selected.
Layers new raster layer and drag under the background shape layer. Selections invert again. Selections modify and expand by 5. Flood fill your layer with a color or gradient of your choice. Adjust add remove noise and add noise at 100. Selections select none. Make the tube layer active and go to adjust hue and saturation colorize and set both values to 0. Lower the opacity of this layer to 40. Merge down to the background layer. Add a drop shadow to the bottom noise layer. Merge all layers together.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer and move to the far right side. Add a drop shadow.
Now let’s dress the tag up with elements from the kit. I will list the elements I used. Feel free to use other elements to make your tag unique. Placement of the elements is completely up to you. If you want your tag to look just like mine then use my tag for reference.
