Let's Begin

1. 
Open a new canvas 700 x 700 white canvas
(you can resize later if you wish)

2.  Up to "Layers - New Raster Layer" and with your flood fill tool flood fill with a color of your choice. I chose color #69a9cf

3. Open up your mask in PSP then along your top tool bar go to "Layers - New Mask Layer - From Image" and use the settings I've shown in the print screen below.


4.  On your layer palette right click on your mask layer, "merge - group"

5.  Along your top tool bar go up to "Adjust - Add/Remove Noise - Add Noise" and use the settings shown in the print screen below.



 6. "Edit", "copy", then "edit", "paste as a new layer" the outlawbydesignft536 tube.  I then reduced the size of my layer to 35% by
going to "Image" , "Resize" "35%" all layers UNCHECKED.  On your layer palette right click on your outlawbydesignft536 layer and "duplicate".  On you layer palette right click on the outlawbydesignft536  TOP layer and "merge down" merging your 2 outlawbydesignft536 together.
(see my print screen below for what I have now)


7.  "Edit", "copy", then "edit", "paste as a new layer" the outlawbydesignft529 tube.  I then reduced the size of my layer to 20% by
going to "Image" , "Resize" "20%" all layers UNCHECKED.  Up to "image - mirror" then "image - flip". On your layer palette right click on your outlawbydesignft529 layer and
"duplicate".  On you layer palette right click on the outlawbydesignft529  TOP layer and "merge down" merging your 2 outlawbydesignft529 together.
(see my print screen below for what I have now)


8.    "Edit", "copy", then "edit", "paste as a new layer" the outlawbydesignft480.  I then reduced the size of my layer to 20% by
going to "Image" , "Resize" "20%" all layers UNCHECKED.


9.   "Edit", "copy", then "edit", "paste as a new layer" the outlawbydesignft531.   I then reduced the size of my layer to 15% by
going to "Image" , "Resize" "15%" all layers UNCHECKED.  Go up to "image - mirror" then move it to the bottom left side of the top envelope.  Take your eraser brush and erase the bottom of the tail that hangs below the envelope.
(see my print screen below for what I did)


10.   "Edit", "copy", then "edit", "paste as a new layer on to your canvas your tube. I used the close up part of the tube.  I placed it so she looks like she's coming out of the envelope.  I then took my eraser tool and erased parts of the tube that overlapped the bottom part of the envelope.  A little tip to help you see where to erase is on your layer palette reduce the opacity of the layer until you can see through your tube to the layer underneath. This will help guide you to erase the parts you'd like to. I also erased parts of the tube so that the top of the bow would show.
(see my print screen below for what I did)

Now it's time to add your word art.   "edit", "copy", then "edit", "paste as a new layer" your wordart.  You will have to reduce the size down of your wordart to about 45%  by going to "Image" , "Resize" "45%" all layers UNCHECKED .  I always export my wordart as a custom brush as I find that's the easiest way to colorize it to a matching color.  I've outlined below the way I always do my word art if you'd like to try that instead.

Here is a little trick for you when it comes to "colorizing" or adding your wordart to your tag as a different color other than black. What I do is I always export my wordart as a "custom brush" that way you can have it to use in the future and make it whatever color you'd like.

Here are the steps on how to do that;
*  first open the wordart and resize it down if you wish. 
*  Go up to "File", "Export", "Custom Brush"
*  When the box pops up name it whatever you like and save.  You can then close in psp your original wordart.
* On your materials palette change the "foreground and strokes properties" box to a color of your choice.
*  Activate your brush tool and arrow down looking for your new wordart you just made
*  Add a new layer to your main canvas and add your new wordart. 
AND THAT'S IT You've now created a "custom brush" and you can make your wordart whatever color your wish. I also gave my wordart a drop shadow

13.   Move your wordart over to the bottom left side of your tag.

14.  Add your name
(for my name I used a script type font and have it a blue drop shadow)

15.  Add your copyright information, save as a jpg (which will give it a white background) or png (close off the visibility of your white background layer) which will save it as a transparent background and you're

ALL DONE!!

Noise added using the dsb Flux Filter (Bright Noise) shown below



**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 ;)

I  hope you have enjoyed this tutorial
