Just For You
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 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 completely coincidental.
Tube of your choice. Preferably one with a close up. I am using a tube by Very Many called Memories. You can purchase this tube at http://verymanytubes.com
Scrap kit is a little freebie from K Designs Scrap. You can get it at http://kdesignsscrap.blogspot.ca/2012/11/happy-dsd-saleslittle-gift.html
Mask of your choice. I am using mask #139 by Vix. You can get her awesome masks at her website under goodies. You can find them at http://www.freewebs.com/vixpsp/
Font of your choice. I am using Thrift Shop Sans Light. This is a PTU font.

Add a drop shadow to the frame.
Open paper 1 and copy and paste as a new layer. Drag to the bottom. Apply the mask of your choice. Delete the mask layer and merge the group. Duplicate the mask layer. Merge these 2 together. This just helps it be darker a bit.

Duplicate. Move this copy to behind your tube a bit but to the right of it so it is between your tube and the pot but still behind your tube some.
