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.
Tube of your choice. Preferably one with a close up. I am using the work of Andy Cooper. This tube is called Angel Pink and you can purchase her at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=113_652_304&products_id=21402
The scrap kit is also called Angel Pink and is by Designz By Sue. You can purchase it at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=21458
Mask of your choice. I am using mask 56 by Vix. You can get her masks at http://www.freewebs.com/vixpsp/
Font of your choice. I am using Hattenschweiler and Twister Script(this is a PTU font)
Drop shadow used throughout:
0 0 85 9.50 Using a dark pink for the color.
Open element 19. Shift+D to duplicate. Close the original. Make your canvas large enough to work with.
Open paper 17 and copy and paste as a new layer. Drag under the frame. Apply the mask of your choice. Delete the mask layer and merge the group. Add a drop shadow to the mask using a pink from the paper for your color.
Using your magic wand select the inside of the frame. Selections modify and expand by 3. Open paper 13 and copy and paste as a new layer. Drag under the frame. Selections invert and hit delete. Selections invert again. Open the close up of your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Position within the frame. Selections invert and hit delete. Selections select none. Change the properties of this layer to luminance legacy. Add a drop shadow to the tube. Merge the tube and paper layers together. Apply penta.com Jeans plugin but change the top value to 10.
Add a drop shadow to the frame.
You can merge the frame layer down to the tube/paper layer if you wish if you like to keep your layer palette clean.
Open your full size tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size until she is just slightly larger than the frame. Move to the far right side of the frame and 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.
Elements I used:
Once you have all the elements you want on the tag then using your preset elipse tool draw out a circle around the outside of the frame. Now place any text you would like on it.
Add your name.
