This tutorial was written by me on June 8th, 2014 and was written assuming you have a general knowledge of PSP. You will need the following supplies:
Wonderful FTU scrap kit by Jackie's Jewels. Download from her blog HERE and please remember to leave some love for hard work freely shared. :)
Gorgeous tube by Verymany, available from their store HERE. The tube is called "Denny" and is also FTU!
Template #41 by Twyzted T's Playroom.
Mask #81 by WeeScotsLass.
Plug-in: Eye Candy 4000, Gradient Glow
Font: I used Jandles, HERE.
~~ Let's begin! ~~
Place the mask in your PSP mask folder or a folder of your choice.
Open the template in PSP, shift + d to duplicate; close the original. Delete Raster 12 and 8. Resize all layers 90% and change the canvas size to 800 x 800. Unhide the background layer and flood fill the blank area with white.
Activate Raster 2. Select all, float and defloat. From the kit, open paper 2 and resize 70%. Copy and paste as a new layer; invert the selection and tap delete. Deselect and delete the original layer.
Follow these steps for the following layers:
Raster 4: use paper 11
Raster 3 & Copy of Raster 3: use paper 8
Raster 5: use paper 9
Raster 7: use paper 8 (resize 85%)
Raster 6: use paper 1
Apply drop shadow of choice to the frameless elements. I used 0, 0, 57, 12.
Resize the tube 50%, then 85%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Apply drop shadow of choice or 2, 2, 57, 10.
Add your elements, I used:
Button: resize 30%; duplicate and mirror
Cherry Basket: resize 50%
Cupcake: resize 30%
Flower Cluster: resize 50%; duplicate, mirror and arrange on the left side. See my tag for placement. Merge these two layers together; duplicate and mirror.
Milkshake 2: resize 40%
Purse: resize 55%
Rose: resize 50%; duplicate. Free rotate copy 15° left and arrange next to the original. Merge down, duplicate and mirror.
Shoes 2: resize 25%
Wordart: resize 90%
Apply drop shadow of choice to all elements or use my settings above.
Hide the background layer and merge visible. Resize the merged layer 85%. Unhide the background and add a new raster layer. Select all. Open paper 6, copy and paste into the selection. Deselect. Apply Gaussian Blur with a radius of 15. Apply WSL mask #81 and merge the mask group. Adjust mask size and placement using the raster deform tool.
Open Sparkle 1 and resize 95%. Copy and paste above the mask layer. Arrange as desired. Duplicate, mirror and flip.
Crop and resize your tag.
Add your name using the Jandles font. I used size 72, stroke 0, colour black.
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow. Under the Colour tab, select Black Halo and change the colour pots to #a3111e. Under the Basic tab, change the Glow Width to 3 and Soft Corners to 0. Apply drop shadow 2, 2, 65, 8.
Add all applicable copyright and license information. Save as a png and you're finished. Enjoy your new tag! If you'd like to show it off, please email me HERE. I love to see what you create!
