This is the tag we'll be making so, here's what you'll need:

• Tube I used was by Rachel Anderson which I purchased from CILM. Please do not use her art without an appropriate license to do so.

• Mask I used was from Melissa, you can get it here I used mask 10.

• I used the scrapkit by the very talented Missy Lynn of Immortal Dreams called Spilled Purfume and it is available for purchase here.

• Filters I used were: Mura Meisters Copies, Xero Moodlight, Xero Porcelain, Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow, Super Blade Pro, and Eye Candy 5 Perspective Shadow.

• Font used was P22 Dearest Swash, but use whatever font you wish.

Okay ready, let's go, make a fab tag!

• Open up a new blank canvas of 700x700 with white background. I know it's big but gives us lots of room to work and we can crop and re-size later as necessary. If you are using PTU art, please make sure that your new image is 72 dpi in accordance with PTU TOU. Copy and paste frame 10 as a new layer, re-size by about 70%. Paste Flower 8 as a new layer, re-size by about 50%, sharpen, and then image flip. Apply Muras Meisters Copies with the following settings:

• Hide the flower frame part for now. With the silver circle frame layer active, using your magic wand tool, click on the outside of the frame (on the blank area), invert your selections and then contract selections by 10. This will easily select all the blank area inside the frame without having it be so tedious for ya lol. On your white background layer, add a new blank layer and paste paper of choice (I used paper 20) into that selection on the new layer. Select none and unhide the flower layer we previously hid.

• Back on white background layer, select all, add a new layer. On your new blank layer, paste paper of choice (I used paper 17) into selection and select none. Apply Melissa's pretty mask and merge layer group if happy with it. While still on the mask layer, I added the leafs element as a new layer. Re-size that layer to your liking and move over to the right so it's just behind the frames. See my tag for reference. Once happy with placing, duplicate and image mirror. I merged down so that the 2 leaf layers were on one and I applied noise with these settings:

• On top of the frames, add your tube and position how you think looks best and re-size as appropriate. Now on the paper layer that is behind the silver frame but above the leafs and mask, paste tube again, don't re-size this time unless of course your tube calls for it lol. Once happy with how she is peaking through the frame, go to the paper layer again and make that layer active. Select all, float, defloat, invert selections and on that paste tube layer hit delete. Select none. Now have that tube layer active again, select all, float, defloat, and below the tube layer add a new blank layer. Flood fill with a matching color from your tube, I used #ddb1b8. Select none. On the tube layer again, duplicate and on the copy (this should be your top tube layer) apply a guassian blur of 5 and change the blend mode to soft light and also change the opacity to 75. Now on the original tube layer, apply Xero Moodlight (screenshot of my settings below) and then change the opacity to 71 on that layer. I also applied Xero Porcelain to this layer as well.

• At this point I cropped and re-sized my tag to what I want the ending tag size to be, leaving a bit of room at the bottom as my font was quite scripty lol. Add any elements you wish to use and add your drop shadows. I used Eye Candy 5 Perspective Shadow, but if you don't have that one, the drop shadow in PSP will work just great too. On the main tube layer, I sharpened, duplicated and applied gaussian blur of 5 to the top copy and changed blend mode to Soft Light. On the original tube layer I applied Xero Porcelain and a drop shadow.

• Add the artist's copyright and your tagger's watermark and all that's left is to do your script. I use a light color from my tube and then did Super Blade Pro (coconut ice setting) and then created a subtle Gradient Glow with Eye Candy 4000 and then of course a blurry darker drop shadow. Hide your white background layer, optimize as a png and voila you're all done! I hope you've enjoyed my tutorial.
