Dark Night Beauty

Dark Night Beauty
Written 9/15/2016
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.
Supplies Used:
Tube of your choice. I am using the work of Jeff Pitarelli. I got this tube when he was with CILM. I am not sure where you can get his tubes now or if you even can.
Scrap Kit is called Zypher by Tiny Turtle Designs. You can purchase this kit at
Font of your choice. I am using Mishall. This is a PTU font.
Drop shadow used throughout:
0 0 85 13.00 Black

Let's Begin:
Open element 28 from the kit and shift+D to duplicate. Close the original. Make your canvas large enough to work with.
Using your magic wand select the inside of the center of the mask. Open paper 15 and copy and paste into selection. Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Place in the center of the mask area. Erase any bits you do not want hanging out with your eraser tool. Add a drop shadow.
Back on the mask layer select the white outline using your magic wand. Add noise of your choice to the outline. Add a drop shadow to the mask layer.
Duplicate the mask layer. On the bottom layer adjust blur Gaussian blur at 15.00. Effects Texture Effects Blinds with the following settings:
Width – 2
Opacity – 85
Color – White
Horizontal and Light from left/top – both checked
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:
Add your name.
Add your copyright and licensing information.
Crop and save.
