This tutorial was written by me on July 24th, 2012 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 was written assuming you have a general knowledge of PSP.
Scrap kit: I used a gorgeous kit by Tootypup Scraps called "Portrait Of A Rose". Please visit Susan's blog HERE for links to her stores. Thank you so much for this stunning kit Susan!
Tube: I used the sexy pinup art of Jennifer Janesko. Jennifer was with CILM when I purchased this tube, you can now purchase her work at CDO.
Template: I used template #72 by Tracy F. Designz. You can download her wonderful templates at Freebie Friends Scraps & More.
Mask: I used mask #19 from Moonbeams & Spiderwebs.
Plug-in used: Xero Porcelain & Radiance, HERE.
Drop shadows used:
Template elements: H&V 0, Opacity 50, Blur 12
Paper layers (above glitter frames): H&V 0, Opacity 35, Blur 10
Kit elements: H&V 2, Opacity 50, Blur 10
Text: H&V 2, Opacity 35, Blur 6
~~ Remember to save often! ~~
Place the mask in your PSP masks folder or a folder of your choice.
Open the template in PSP, duplicate and close the original.
Change the canvas size to 800 x 750.
Delete the Tracy F. Designz layer. Add a new raster layer and send to the bottom, flood fill with white.
Activate the rectangle layer. Select all, float and defloat. Open a paper of choice from the kit and resize 70%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Invert selection and tap delete. Deselect and delete the original layer.
Repeat these steps for the circle and square layers.
After adding the paper to the square layer, do not deselect. Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer and resize 125%; arrange within the selection. Tap delete and deselect.
Apply Xero Porcelain using the default settings.
Apply Xero Radiance using the default settings, but change the "Beauty" slider to 150. Change the blend mode to "Multiply". Reduce the opacity if you wish, I left mine at 100.
Use the colour replacer tool set to #532932 and change the color of the text in the Raster 1 layer. If you need detailed instructions on using this tool, check out my "Kissable" tut HERE.
Glitter rectangle and glitter square: Select all, float and defloat. Flood fill with #8d686f. Adjust > Add/Remove Noise > Add Noise > Gaussian, 60%, Monochrome checked.
For the glitter circle layer: Select all, float and defloat. Flood fill with #d8b0b8. Apply the same noise effect as above.
Copy and paste the tube once again, resize 115%. Place on the far right side of the tag. Adjust > Hue & Saturation > Colorize > Hue: 247, Saturation: 87
Add your elements, I used:
DuskRose_04: resize 30%
RoseLeaves_01: resize 30%; duplicate and mirror
Perfume_01: resize 20%, then 85%

Apply drop shadows. 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.
Crop and resize the tag. Add your name and all applicable copyright and license information. Save as a png or jpg and you're finished. Enjoy your new tag!
