I created this tutorial on November 26th 2008. I created this using PSP X but it should be able to be done in any version. If this tutorial resembles another it's purely coincidental. The idea for this tutorial is my own design and the copyright of the tutorial belongs to me. What you create with this tutorial is yours to do with as you please just not for monetary gain.
Tube of your choice. I'm using the gorgeous artwork of Ismael Rac and you must own a license to use his artwork. You can purchase a license and his artwork at MPT.
Scrap kit of choice or the one I used called Spirit of Christmas. You can download it at Whisprddreamz Designz.
Mask is from essex girl and can be downloaded here. It's under her page of Christmas masks, and it's called sg_braided-star.
My supplies here.
Open a new canvas 600x600 and flood fill white. We will crop and resize later.
Open paper 5 from the kit and paste as a new layer on your canvas. go to layers and down to load/save mask load mask from disk. Find your mask sg_braided-star and apply it with these settings: Source luminance, fit to canvas, hide all mask, invert transparency checked. Now merge your mask group.
Open the frame template that I supplied in my supplies. Copy and paste as a new layer. Go up to selections select all, float, defloat. Open paper 6. Copy and paste as a new layer, go to selections invert and then hit delete on your keyboard. Now you can delete my frame template layer.
Select your magic wand and click inside of your frame center. Go to selections modify and expand 5. Open paper 4 paste as a new layer. Selections invert delete on keyboard. Do not deselect. Move your paper 4 layer under your frame.
Open the stars from the kit. Resize them 80% paste as a new layer and position them under the frame so it looks like they are coming from the top of the frame. Once happy with the position hit delete on your keyboard. Do not deselect.
Open the tube your planning on using. If your using the same tube I'm using then make sure you turn her opacity back up to 100%. Position her in the frame the way you want and then hit delete on your keyboard. If your tube is above your frame move her below it. Now open ribbon 2 position it at the bottom of your frame but above your tube. Hit delete on your keyboard. Select none. Dropshadow your tube, the stars, ribbon and your frame with your choice of dropshadow.
Open xmas corner. Resize 50%. Paste as a new layer and position in the top left part of your frame. Add a dropshadow of choice.
Resize your tag at this point. I resized mine by 85%.
Add your copyright and license number.
Set your foreground color to #d42e4d, and your background color to #f2a0a4. If using the same font that I supplied then use these settings stroke 2 size 48 and type out your text. Convert to a raster layer. Dropshadow your text. Save your tag as a Jpeg.
