Tube or image of choice
Scrapkit: "Bon Temps Collection - Sam" by "Oopsie Daisy" and can be purchased here.
Mask(s): Weescotslass Mask 116, you can find it here.
Here we go!
Open a new image, 600x600 (we can resize later), flood fill with white.
Open frame4 - Copy, paste as a new layer, resize if necessary.
Open paper1 - Copy, paste as a new layer, move underneath frame layer, apply WSL16 mask, merge down, duplicate if you'd like it a little darker.
Open paper2 - Select inside of frame with magic wand, expand by 5, add new layer, floodfill with paper2, select none, move underneath frame layer.
Open tube or image of choice - Copy, paste tube as new layer, make any resizing now.
Open another tube - I used a collie picture that I had, copy, paste as a new layer, drop opacity to 38.
Open assortment of flowers and other elements of choice - Copy, paste each as a new layer, resizing and rotating to your liking.
At this point, I usually resize if I need a smaller image. I also save both the original size and the smaller size images.
Add a new vector layer for your name - (I floodfilled mine with paper1) To make it stand out, use could use either Eye Candy or duplicate the layer, convert bottom layer to raster, select all, use magic wand to select text, expand by 2, floodfill with white.
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!!
