Just a note about
my tuts I dont tell
all my secrets lol
like how I do the
glow on a name etc.
I also have no
control over the
FTU supplies
I am sorry but
sometimes the
kits are for a
limited time free
or just disappear,
I will share
masks etc ONLY
if the tou of
the creator allows,
You can easily find
another mask or kit
to use in place of
what I have used
on my tuts, I write tuts
as I create a tag,

I hope you all
enjoy them and
I thank you
so much for
taking the time
to stop by my blog

Shades of Pink

Shades Of Pink What you need : Tube of choice, I used artwork by Elias Chatzoudis, you can purchase a his art at My PSP tubes
Template used, Pookers template 14 you can find HERE This uses no scraps just filters in psp
Font of choice, I used dumbass
Graphic Program of choice, I use PSP 9
Let's Begin!
1. open pookers template, duplicate and close the original, canvas resize 750 x 600
delete the copyright layer, and fill the white layer, ( I like to start large to have plenty of room to work you can always crop and resize later)
2. select ractangle 1 layer, select all float defloat (I add a new layer on template tags)
add a new layer and flood fill with a color that compliments your tube. select none
delete the rectangle 1 layer.
3. Select rectangle 2 layer and repeat, as above using colors that compliment your tube.
4. Select rectangle 3 layer and repeat, this time leave selected, copy and paste your tube
and go selections invert and delete the excess tube off the rectangle. now go up to layer and
change the blend mode of your tube to luminance (L) add a drop shadow of -2, -2. 50, 5. (to make the shadow look correct take your magic wand and click outside the rectangle on the rectangle layer go back to the tube layer and hit delete.
5. select sandollar 1 layer repeat the same steps as you did on the other rectangle layers
6. same as above but select sandollar 2 layer . I duplicated both my sandollar layers and did image flip, image mirror so that I now have 2 on each side of my tag.
7. select your rectangle layer 1 (the first layer you worked on) select all float defloat, effects , texture effects, weave, with these settings......... 2, 6, 1, I used black and black with fill gaps checked, But again use a color that will compliment your tag
select none.
8. Select your rectangle layer 2 and repeat the same step above.
9. Now you can add a drop shadow of choice to your rectangle layers. I added another tube to my tag, this is your choice as this is just a guide, Now go to the white layer and add a new layer, fill with a color that compliments your tag, and apply a mask of choice, I used, Artmama's mask 06 you can find that HERE
10. when you have your tag the way you like it hide your white background layer and merge visable, Now add your copyright information, and your name and save. Hope you enjoyed my 2nd tut.

If you use psp dropshadow the settings would be 2, 2, 50 , 5 , black
Now go to your tree's, pea people, and grass layers and add the same dropshadow as above
Hid your white background and merge visable.
unhide the white background and open paper gcz-4 copy and paste below your merged layer, resize to 70%
layer load mask from disc, you can use a mask of choice or the one I used
was boundlessbliss_grungemask_1 (I am not 100% sure where I got this mask)
Now above the mask layer open element gzc_gsplat copy and paste as a new layer
Move up and a bit to the right, layer duplicate, image flip, image mirror , and place where you think
it looks best (again you can use my tag as a guide)
Open element gcz-sun copy and paste it above your tag layer, resize by around 48% and move to the upper
right of your tag, add the same gradient glow as above ( 2 times) and the same drop shadow as well,
Now open element gcz-butterfly, copy and paste as a new layer, image resize by 40% Place where you feel it looks best and add a drop shadow. ( I rotated mine by 12% to the right ) .
Hide your white background layer and merge visable. Add the correct copyright information to your tag and your name and Save your tag .
If you would like to know how I did the effects on the name, I used font Montelago Flaire ( this is a ptu font)
size 150 with a stroke width of 1.5 black and fill color #6ccf37 add your name, using vector, before converting to raster image rotate free rotate to the left by 8, convert to raster selections select all float defloat, modify contract by 2, effects , texture effects , weave, settings 1, 4, 1, color black in both boxes, fill gaps, keep selected, efects inner bevel with these settings, width 11, smoothness 27, depthe 5, ambience, 4
