ANGELIC
For this tutorial you will need
Written using PSPX12
*  Scrap Kit -  I used this BEAUTIFUL Scrap Kit (Angelic) by Scrap Candy which you can get from Scrap Candy HERE

* Tube - I used the stunning artwork of Rachel Tallamy which is a PTU tube  which you can purchase from Up Your Art (UYA)  HERE

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

Let's get started.

From the scrapkit open up the following in PSP;
Angelic_ele8_3PP
Angelic_ele11_3PP
Angelic_ele34_3PP
Angelic_ele80_3PP
Angelic_ele87_3PP
Angelic_ele83_3PP
Paper of your choice
( I chose Angelic_pp1_3PP)

Note: Drop shadow your layers as you go if you wish. The drop Shadow used throughout is;
Vertical - 3
Horizontal - 2
Opacity - 20
Blur - 3
Color - Black

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

2.  
"Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas the Angelic_ele34_3PP and with your mover tool move it up to the top of your canvas.

3.  On your layer palette "right click" on this layer and "duplicate" then up to "image - flip".  On your layer palette "right click" on your top Angelic_ele34_3PP and "merge - down" merging your 2 Angelic_ele34_3PP layers together.

4. "Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas the Angelic_ele87_3PP then  REDUCE the size to 85% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "85%" all layers UNCHECKED. Move it over slightly to the left and down on your canvas so the bottom of your element is only about 1/4 up from the BOTTOM of your canvas.  On your layer palette "right click" on this layer and "duplicate" then up to "image - mirror".  On your layer palette "right click" on your top Angelic_ele87_3PP and "merge - down" merging your 2 Angelic_ele87_3PP layers together.
(see my print screen below for how mine looks)



5. 
"Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas the Angelic_ele80_3PP .

6. On your layer palette click on your frame layer to make it active then take your magic wand tool and click inside the inside the circular frame until you have marching ants. 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

7. 
"Selections", "Modify", "Expand" and choose "5"

8.  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"
(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 Your tube and on your layer palette "right click" and then "arrange - bring to top" so your tube layer is your top layer then  REDUCE
the size to 85% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "85%" all layers UNCHECKED. 

10.  Now we're going to make it look like parts of our tube are inside our frame and other parts outside of it.  The steps below outline how you achieve this effect;
*  On your layer palette "right click" on your tube layer and "duplicate" then drag your duplicated layer BELOW your frame layer"
* On your layer palette click on your TOP tube layer to make it active then take your eraser tool and start to erase parts of the tube.  You may have to "edit - undo" a step if you don't like what you've erased
(I erased parts of the tube on the right side so you could see the frame elements on that side and the bottom of the frame so she looked like she was comint out of the frame). 
* You may have to click on your BOTTOM tube layer on your layer palette to make it active to erase parts of the bottom tube you don't want showing as well.
Just remember you can always "edit - undo" and keep trying until you get a look you like
(seem my print screen below for what I have now)



11.   "Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas Angelic_ele8_3PP  and on your layer palette "right click" and then "arrange - bring to top" then  REDUCE the size to 30% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "30%" all layers UNCHECKED. 

12.   "Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas Angelic_ele3_3PP  then  REDUCE
the size to 45% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "45%" all layers UNCHECKED.  Move the dove to your liking.

13.   "Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas Angelic_ele83_3PP  then  REDUCE
the size to 65% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "65%" all layers UNCHECKED.  With your mover tool move the angelic word art under your frame.

14.   
With your text tool type out your name. I used a script font and placed it on the tag hanging off the frame.

15.  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 ;)
