Feel free to use my tutorial as a guide and have fun giving it your own spin.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Needed Supplies :

Tube of Choice .. I am using the work of Lisa Cree which you must have a license to use. Please do not use this work without purchasing through PSP Tube Stop here.

Mask of Choice .. I have used WSL_Mask366 which can be downloaded here.

 Template of Choice .. I have used a Template 71 by Nicole which can be downloaded here.

Word Art of Choice .. I have used Word art from Designs by Vaybs which can be downloaded here.

Font of Choice .. The NautiGal

Filters Used .. Eye Candy Impact Glass & Eye Candy Gradient Glow (Optional)

Let's get started

Open your template in PSP & delete credits layer. Image/Canvas Size/600x600. New raster layer, floodfill with white. On your layers palette, right click on the white layer, arrange & send to bottom.

New raster layer just above your background layer & floodfill with #9a3347. Select all, copy and paste into selection Paper 7. Select none. New mask layer from image, WSL_Mask366, invert transparency unchecked. Merge group & resize 105%.

Repeat this time using #448f24. Rotate right 20.

Select Rectangle Fill layer, select/all/float/defloat, copy and paste your tube or image, resize as necesary, selections invert, hit delete once & select none. Delete original Rectangle Fill layer.

If your tube or image has more open areas, floodfill a background layer first.

Select Rectangle Frame layer. Adjust/Color Balance/Manual Color correction from #606060 to #9a3347. Adjust/add remove noise/add noise/random monochrome checked 65%. I then added the following Eye Candy Impact/Glass Effect followed by drop shadow. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Copy and paste Rose Vine tube, resize as necessary, flip & drop shadow. Position along the bottom of your frame. If you are using a different tube set and don't have this, feel free to use a decorative flower vine you would have in a kit.

Select Square 1 layer, select all/float/defloat, copy and paste your tube or image, resize as necessary, position so you can see an interesting part of your tube, selections invert, hit delete once & select none. Delete original Square 1 layer.

Repeat this with Square 2 & 3 layers.

Select Square Frame layer, adjust/color balance/manual color correction from #a0a0a0 to #448f24. Repeat the same effects you used on the larger frame earlier.

Copy and paste Rose Vine tube, resize as necessary & drop shadow. Position along the top of your top small frame. Layer duplicate, rotate right 90 and position along the side of your bottom frame.

Copy and paste Word art & resize 40%/35%. I then added the same noise effect as used before, followed by a size 3 fat white gradient glow & then drop shadow.

X out white background, merge visible. Open white background, resize to your liking (I have used 500x500).

Add copyright and name on your tag. I used TheNautiGal, Size 72, Color black. Add the noise effect, gradient glow & drop shadow we used with word art.

Save and you are done.

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