This tutorial was written for those that have a working knowledge of PSP (I use Version 9).
Artwork courtesy of Zindy SD Nielson and you can find her here. Please make sure that you have the appropriate artist license to use the same tube as I do.
Tube of choice
Scrapkit: "Angelic Passions" by "Missy Lynn Scraps" and can be purchased here.
Mask(s): Mask98 by Weescotslass and available here.
Here we go!
Open a new image, 600x600 (we can resize later), flood fill with white.
Open paper6 - Copy, paste as a new layer, apply mask WSL Mask 98.
Open frame4 - Copy, paste as a new layer, resize if necessary, duplicate, change blend mode to multiply.
Open paper6 - Click inside of frame4 with your magic wand, expand selection by 5, add new layer, floodfill, move layer underneath frame.
Open harp - Copy, paste as a new layer, resize to your liking and move towards the right of the tag.
Open an assortment of elements (roses, baby's breath fern, feather, statue, candle pieces, book) - Copy, paste as new layers, resize to your liking, some may need mirrored or rotated depending on which elements you chose.
To add flame - open new image 600x600, select picture tube tool, sort through tubes by adding a new layer each time til you find the desired flame, copy, paste as a new layer, resize to fit the candle.
At this point, I usually resize if I need a smaller image. I also save both the original size and the smaller size images.
Open tube of choice - Copy, paste as a new layer, resize if necessary, I colorized this one to grayscale.
Add a new vector layer for your name.
Go back through to sharpen and add a drop shadow to your layers.
Add your copyright as the finishing touch.
Save your tag in your favorite format and you are done!!
