Earth Day

 This tutorial was written for those with a working knowledge of Paint Shop Pro.

* Paint Shop Pro or similar. I used PSPXIII but you should be able to make this tag in earlier versions.
* Tube of choice. I am using the artwork of Jamie Kidd. You can find her work HERE
* Scrap Kit. I am using the awesome kit Earth Day TS by Foxys Designz which can be purchased HERE
* Font of choice - I used Rat Infested Mailbox which you can download it HERE
* Filters used was Eyecandy Gradient Glow (can substitute with a white drop shadow).
* Mask of choice.
1. Open your tube and scrap supplies in PSP. Open your font (by double clicking on it in Windows Explorer) and minimise to use later.

2. Open a new image 500 x 500 with a transparent background.

3. Add a new raster layer. Flood Fill with a Paper from the kit.  I chose Paper3_FD for mine.

4. To apply your Mask of choice go to Layers - Load/Save Mask - Load Mask from Disk - Select your mask from the drop down list - Load. 

5.  Right mouse click on the layers palette and Merge Group.

6. Once you have your background set, open your scrap kit and select the elements you wish to use in your tag.  I chose the Tag element to use as the next layer, then applied a drop shadow as shown below.
7. Select the blue netting and place on the background and select your smudge tool and smudge around the edges of the netting to soften it.

8. Place the glitter on your tag and position where you think it will look best.

9. Select your frame.  I used the Element1_FD and apply a drop shadow.  Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow - V2, H-2, O50, B2  Colour black.
 10. Place your tube on the frame and place your elements around the frame until you have the right settings.

11. Select your Ellipse tool and select the with your background set to a colour matching your tube.  I selected Paper7_FD.  Draw out your circle and move behind the frame.  Select Adjust - Blur - Gaussian Blur - 7.00 - OK.

12. Add your name to your tag.  Apply your filter to your name, Gradient Glow, Black.

13. Add the copyright to your tag and then save as a PNG or JPG.

You are now finished.

I hope you enjoyed doing my tutorial.
