This tutorial was written by me on August 18th, 2014 and was written assuming you have a general knowledge of PSP. This is the matching tag for the forum set previously posted below. :)
Supplies needed are listed in my forum set tutorial, HERE. Additionally, you will need mask #111 by Designs by Vaybs.
Let's get started!
Place the mask in your PSP mask folder or a folder of your choice.
Open tag template #022; shift + d to duplicate and close the original.
Delete layers cr, 9, 10 and 11.
Change the canvas size to 750 x 750. Unhide the background layer and flood fill the blank area with white.
Activate layer 1. Select all, float and defloat. From the kit, open paper 3 and resize 70%. Copy and paste as a new layer and arrange as desired; invert the selection and tap delete. Deselect and delete original layer. Apply drop shadow: 0, 0, 58, 12.
Repeat these steps (unless otherwise noted) for the following layers:
2: use paper 3
3: use paper 1, add a new raster layer and paste into selection
4: use paper 4
5: use paper 4
8: use paper 1, resize 55%. Do not deselect. Copy and paste the tube as a new layer (do not resize) and use the eraser to carefully remove parts of the tube that extend beyond the selection. See my tag for reference. Drop shadow the tube: -4, 4, 25, 15.
Foreground: #d4bf86 Background: #e24a73
Change foreground to gradient: Select Foreground/Background from the drop down menu. Angle: 45, Repeat: 7, Style: Radial, Invert: unchecked.
Activate layer 6; select all, float and defloat. Add a new raster layer and flood fill with the gradient. Deselect and delete original layer.
Activate layer 7; select all, float and defloat. Add a new raster layer and flood fill with #f7efe6. Deselect and delete original layer. Drop shadow: 2, 2, 58, 5. Repeat these steps for layer 12.
Add your elements and apply drop shadow 2, 2, 58,10 unless otherwise noted. I used:
#2: resize 50%; duplicate, mirror and resize 85%. Arrange on the top left side of the tag (see my tag for placement). Merge these two layers together then duplicate. Arrange at bottom right.
#10: resize 35%, duplicate and resize 85%
#12: resize 60%
#15: resize 60%; duplicate, mirror and flip. Drop shadow: 1, 1, 20, 5
#21: resize 35%; duplicate and mirror
#22: resize 25%; duplicate and mirror
Hide the background layer and merge visible. Resize merged layer 85%.
Unhide background layer and add a new raster layer. Select all, copy and paste paper 5 into the selection. Deselect and apply DBV mask #111, merge mask group. Use the raster deform tool to adjust mask size and placement.
Crop and resize your tag.
Add your name and all applicable copyright and license information. Save as a png and your tag and 3-part forum set is complete!
