For this tutorial you will need the following:
PSP X (or similar version)
Tube by Enamorte, available for purchase at CDO
Kit by Abstract Creations, available for purchase at CDO
Mask 39 by Moonbeans & Spiderwebs
Font of choice
Open a new transparent canvas, 600 X 600 pixels. Using your selection tool, set on rectangle, use custom selection with these settings:
Flood fill with paper "p9", at 70% size. While selected go to selections>modify>contract and type in 10 pixels, click ok, tap delete on keyboard and add a new raster layer, selections>modify>expand and type in 2 pixels. Flood fill with paper "p1" at 70% size. Deselect and drag this as your bottom layer. Add a drop shadow to the "frame" layer that we just made.
Open element "e32" and copy/paste as a new layer. Resize to 50% and sharpen. Move it to the upper left corner of the "frame" >layers>duplicate>Image>Mirror>Image>Flip, position as needed to suit and drop shadow both layers. Image>resize to 70%, ALL LAYERS ticked.
Click the p1 paper fill layer select all>float, open your tube and choose the largest close up layer, copy/paste as a new layer onto your canvas and resize to 70% while still selected. Position right corner of image, selections>invert, make sure you're on the tube layer and hit delete on the keyboard. Change the blend style of the tube layer to screen.
Now, add elements of choice. I am using element e12, and e18, resized to about 65% each, make sure you sharpen at least twice on those 2 after resizing, and add drop shadow of choice.
Add your tube and resize as needed (85%ish), sharpen and drop shadow this layer. Almost done!
I am seeing that my tag needs something a bit "extra", so let's add a new raster layer, and send to the bottom. Add mask 39 from Moonbeams & Spiderwebs, layers>merge>group. Make sure that it is bottom layer. I resized to 85%.
Add your copyright information, and any remaining elements you'd like.
Add your name on a separate layer. I am using a font called Anne Boleyn SH at 72 pt. Add drop shadow. Layers>Merge>Visible. Copy/paste as new image to crop and save as.
