For this tutorial you will need

*  Bundle Pack (Tube/Scrap Kit) -  I used Elegant artwork of Jonathon Earl Bowser and the matching Scrap Kit bundle from CDO (Creative Design Outlet) which can be purchased

*********************

Let's get started.

From the scrapkit open up the following in PSP;

Tube of choice (I used 1-1)
LHDScraps_Bowser-Package1-ele3
LHDScraps_Bowser-Package1-ele4
LHDScraps_Bowser-Package1-ele8
LHDScraps_Bowser-Package1-ele20
LHDScraps_Bowser-Package1-ele42
LHDScraps_Bowser-Package1-frame4
LHDScraps_Bowser-Package1-paper7
LHDScraps_Bowswer-Package1-WordArt2

Note: Drop shadow your layers as you go if you wish. The drop Shadow used throughout is;
Vertical - 3
Horizontal - 2LHDScraps_Bowswer-Package1-frame4

Opacity - 20
Blur - 3
Color - Black

1.  Open a new canvas 700 x 700 transparent background.

2.  
"Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas the LHDScraps_Bowser-Package1-ele42
 With your mover tool move it up and over to the left hand side of your canvas (I placed mine about 1/4 way down from the top)

3. 
On your layer palette right click and "duplicate" then up to "image - mirror" then on your layer palette right click and "merge down" merging your 2 ele42 layers together.
(see my print screen below for where I've placed mine)


4.  
"Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas LHDScraps_Bowser-Package1-frame4  and move it over to the left hand side and centre it over the middle of the flower.  On your layer palette right click and "duplicate" then up to "image - mirror" On your layer palette right click and "merge down" merging your 2 ele42 layers together.
 (see my print screen below for where I've placed mine)


5.   On your layer palette click on your frame layer to make it active then take your magic wand tool and click inside both frames until you have marching ants. (Note the dangly chains on the frame mak sure you keep clicking inside those areas as well). The best settings I found to do this with are as follows;
(see print screen below)
Mode: Add(shift), Match mode: RGB Value, Tolerance: 102, Contiguous checked, Feather: 0, Anti-alias checked, Inside

6. 
"Selections", "Modify", "Expand" and choose "5"

7.  Open a paper of choice, and  "Edit", "Copy" then back to your main canvas and "edit", "paste as a new layer".  "Selections" "Invert" (make sure you're on your paper layer) and hit your "delete" key on your keyboard.  On you layers palette move your paper layer UNDER your frame layer
"Selections - Select None"

8.  Still with your frames selected "Edit - Copy" then "Edit - Paste as a new layer" your first tube of choice. In my case I used all 3 tubes from the tube pack.  If you're only using 1 tube you can just paste different parts of the tube into each frame)  Move your first tube over into the left hand sided frame.  "Edit - Copy" then "Edit - Paste as a new layer" your second  tube of choice  then move it over to the right hand sided frame.  On your layer palette right click and "merge down" merging your 2 tube layers together.   On your layer palette change the "blend mode" to "hard light" and reduce the opacity down to about 55%
(see my print screen below for what I have now)

9.   "Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas LHDScraps_Bowser-Package1-ele20 and move it down to the bottom of your frame and over to the left hand side.  On your layer palette right click and "duplicate" then up to "image - mirror" On your layer palette right click and "merge down" merging your 2 ele20 layers together.
 (see my print screen below for where I've placed mine)


10.  "Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas LHDScraps_Bowser-Package1-ele8 and move it down to the bottom of your frame.

11.  "Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas LHDScraps_Bowser-Package1-ele4 then  REDUCE the size to 75% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "75%" all layers UNCHECKED. 

12.  "Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your canvas your main tube and move it to the centre to make it look like she's sitting inbetween the 2 frames.

13.   "Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas LHDScraps_Bowser-Package1-ele3 then  REDUCE the size to 45% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "45%" all layers UNCHECKED. Move so it looks like it's sitting on her fingertips. I also moved this layer BELOW my tube layer.

15.   With your text tool type out your name. I used a script font and placed it to the right of the wordart

16.  Add the artist copyright information and save as a jpg or png file
(If you'd like a transparent background click on the eye on your layer palette to the left of your bottom white layer to hide it then save your tag as a png file)

ALL DONE!!

**Note**
My preview shows some "noise" added to my tag. If you'd like to do that as well and don't know how to add noise to a tag you can use the "DSB Flux Filter - Bright Noise". I have written a tutorial on how to use this filter if you'd like to try the tutorial to add the noise to your tag.

You can find the tutorial

Animation really isn't necessary with this tag as it looks just as nice without ;)
