Gold Chocolate PTU
This tutorial was written on February 21, 2010 Shani aka Wicked Princess. The concept of the tag is mine and mine alone. Any resemblance to any other tag/tut is pure coincidence. This was written for those with working knowledge of PSP.
++Paint Shop Pro ( I used 10 but any version should work)
++Scrap kit by Natasha of Sticky Kisses Designs called Lucky can be purchased from HERE
++Template 101 by Ali can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the work of Leigh Young. When I purchased her work, she was still with MPT, you can go to her website to find out where to get her art now. Leigh Young's Website HERE
-Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
++Font and Mask of choice
-Add Drop shadow of choice as you go
-You can merger layers as you want to make things easier for yourself.
Open the template in PSP, using your shortcut keys on your keyboard (SHIFT+D) duplicate the template as a new image. Close the original.
Open several papers of choice, resizing as needed. For example, when I look at the blue bar where it tells me what I’ve opened (say like paper 2) it tells me what percentage I’m viewing it at. For me it’s usually 16%, so I resize to 16% bringing it to 100%. ( I hope that made sense!) Once you’ve done this, minimize for later use.
Next go to the bottom template layer and go to selections, select all, then float, selections defloat. Don’t forget to go to selections, none then delete the template layer. Add a gradient glow of your choice. Repeat this process for the rest of the template.
Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your choice of mask and merge group. Move this layer below your template layers.
Then open the shamrock splatter, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer at the top of the canvas. Move it down below the template layers. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror and then image, flip.
Now open the ribbon with hats on it, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Arrange it to the bottom left of the templates, we’re going to make a square out of it. Also make sure its below the template layers. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror then image, flip.
Open the iron braid, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to below the template layers, to the right, at the end of the ribbon. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror then image, flip.
Now open the gold coins, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it below the large circle layer, arrange it to the upper right of the tag. Add a bow to the top right.
Next open the glitter shamrock paper clip, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the upper left of the tag. Move it below the circle layer. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror then image, flip. Add the yellow flower of your choice to the middle of the shamrocks.
Then open the pot of gold with the rainbow. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the left of the tag.
Add your text, copyrights, tagger markings and licensing info.
Save and your done!
