Strawberry Wine

This tutorial was written by me on June 18th, 2011 and is the result of my own ideas.  Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional.

PSP version used: X2, but should work in other versions.

This tutorial assumes you have a good working knowledge of PSP.

Supplies Needed

Scrap kit of choice: I used a beautiful kit by Designs By Stina called "Strawberry Wine".  I LOVE the colours in this kit!  Please visit Stina's blog HERE for purchase information.  Thanks so much Stina!

Tube of choice: I used the gorgeous pinup art of Jennifer Janesko.  This tube was a limited edition that I received from CILM.  Jennifer's tubes can now be purchased at CDO.

Mask of choice: I used mask #58 from Urban Fairytales.

Plug-in used: Eye Candy Gradient Glow, download a demo HERE.

Font of choice: I used AlexBrush, a pay font.

Drop shadow used throughout: H&V 2, Opacity 50, Blur 10.

~~ Remember to save often! ~~

Place the mask in your PSP masks folder or a folder of your choice.

Open a new image, 750 x 750, white background.

From the kit, open Frame 12 and resize 70%.  Copy and paste as a new layer.

Using your magic wand, click inside the frame and invert the selection.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer and arrange as desired within the selection.  Use your eraser to remove the bottom part of the tube.

Selections > Modify > Contract by 4.

Open a paper of choice, resize 70%, copy and paste as a new layer.  Move below the frame and the tube.  Tap delete and deselect.

Add your elements; I used:

Bottle_Glass01: resize 35%
ChocDippedStrawberry: resize 15%, then 85%
DoodleButterfly 01 & 02: resize each 25%, then 85%
Floral05: resize 30%
Flower 04 & 06: resize each 20%
Lips: 15%
Strawberries03: resize 20%
WordArt01: resize 40%

Apply Gradient Glow to the word art.  Here are the settings I used:

Add your name and apply the gradient glow effect using the same settings.

Hide the background layer and merge visible.  Unhide the background layer and add a new raster layer.  Select all.  Copy and paste a paper of choice into the selection; deselect.  Apply the mask and merge the mask group.  Resize 90%.

Add all applicable copyright and license information, save your tag as a png or jpeg and you're finished!  I hope you enjoy your new tag!

I'd love to see your results, email me!  :-)

Hugs, Carol
