This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP.
 
Needed Supplies & Filters :


Tube of Choice .. I am using the work of Christelle Huynh (http://eternal-s.deviantart.com) which you must have a license to use. Please do not use her work without purchasing through My Tag Art here.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous FTU scrap kit by Gina's Gems called New Year's Blitz which can be downloaded here.

Mask of Choice .. I haved used WSL_Mask365 by weescotslass which can be downloaded here.

Template of Choice .. I have used New Year Template #2 by Addictive Pleasures which can be downloaded here.

Font of Choice .. Waterbrush ROB

Let's get started

Open your template in PSP & delete credits, small text & small text 2 layers. Resize canvas size 700x700 & floodfill background layer white. Resizing your canvas is your choice at this point, it's just my compulsion to work with a square project.

New raster layer just above your background layer. Select all, copy and paste into selection Paper 4. Select none. New mask layer from image, WSL_Mask365, invert transparency unchecked. Merge group and resize 105%.

Layer duplicate & merge both mask layers together.

Select Rectangle layer, select all/float/defloat, copy and paste Paper 1, selections invert and hit delete. Do not deselect. Selections invert, selections/modify/expand 5, new raster layer, floodfill with #a3120f & adjust/add remove noise/uniform monochrome checked/35%.

Select none and drag this layer beneath your first rectangle layer and drop shadow. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout. Delete original Rectangle layer from your template.

Repeat with Rectangle 1 layer.

Select Strips layer. Adjust color balance/manual color correction from white to #a3120f.

Select Circle layer, select all/float/defloat, copy and paste Paper 2, selections invert and hit delete. Do not deselect. Selections invert, selections/modify/expand 5, new raster layer, floodfill with #bc9e58 & adjust/add remove noise/uniform monochrome checked/35%.

Select none and drag this layer beneath your first Circle layer and drop shadow. Delete original Circle layer from your template.

Select Circle 2 layer. Adjust color balance/manual color correction from black to #bc9e58.

Select Rectangle 2 layer, select all/float/defloat, copy and paste Paper 4, selections invert and hit delete. Do not deselect. Selections invert, selections/modify/expand 5, new raster layer, floodfill with #bc9e58 & adjust/add remove noise/uniform monochrome checked/35%.

Select none and drag this layer beneath your first Rectangle 2 and drop shadow. Delete original Rectangle 2 layer from your template.

Select Glitter text layer. Adjust color balance/manual color correction from white to #a3120f. I then added a size 5 fat color #bc9e58 gradient glow, repeated gradient glow and then added drop shadow.

Select Text layer, select all/float/defloat, copy and paste Paper 3, selections invert and hit delete. Select none and delete original Text layer.

Depending on the tube you are using, you might want to resize at this point. I chose to resize at this point to 500x500.

Select your Circle 2 layer, copy and paste Firework, resize 30% & drop shadow. Centre nicely on your circle.

Copy and paste Bougainville, resize 65% & drop shadow. Position to the left hand side. Trim the ends of the stem if you find they are sticking out the bottom.

Copy and paste Deco, resize 60% & drop shadow. Position starting from the top right hand corner.

Copy and paste your tube, resize a bit if necessary, position so it sits nicely & then drop shadow. Look at my tag for placement.

Select your Strips layer, copy and paste Beads, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position on one your strips. Layer duplicate and move onto your other strip.

Select your Rectangle 2 layer, copy and paste Ribbon, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position bottom left hand corner. Layer duplicate and mirror.

Copy and paste Champagne Bottle, resize 40% & drop shadow. Position bottom right hand corner. Copy and paste Wine Glass, resize 30% & drop shadow. Position next to your Champagne Bottle.

Copy and paste Winter Flower, resize 30% & drop shadow. Position bottom left hand corner. Copy and paste Firework, resize 30% & drop shadow. Position bottom centre.

If you did not already resize earlier, X out white background, merge visible. Open white background, resize to your liking (I have used 500x500).

Add copyright. Using Waterbrush Rob, Size 60, color #a3120f, type out your name. Centre on your word art and rotate slightly. I then added a noise effect .. adjust/add remove noise/uniform mono checked/35% and then added a size 3 fat color #bc9e58 gradient glow, repeated the gradient glow and then drop shadow.
 
Save and you are done.

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial. Pls feel free to experiment and use my tutorial as a guide.
