Scrapkit Materials Used:

Let's Tag!!

Open a new image 700x700 px / 72 resolution.

Make 3 new raster layers named canvas 1 light & canvas 2 dark & canvas 3 white. Flood fill each of these layers with a corresponding color. This will be used to make sure our copyright info can be seen later on when our tag is complete.

ssc_lia_element 7 resize by 75% x6 times.
Mura's Meister - Copies--preset menu set to encircle, set with these settings:
#:12, Shift X / Shift Y: 50, angle: 0, roation: 100, Phase: -25, Cycle: 100, Attenuation: 0, Scale: 100, Tile Gap, Thru BG Range & Fade Out: 0, Thru BG smooth: 30.  Click ok rename rose wreath.

ssc_lia_element 22: resize by 75% x2 times, paste as new layer, mura's meister copies, same setting. Resize by 75%. Move under rose wreath layer, rename vines.

Highlight rose wreath layer, with magic wand, click inside the center of wreath. Selections - Modify - expand 10 px. Click OK. New raster layer, name it paper bg. Drag this layer in your layer palette UNDER your rose wreath layer. Choose paper, I used paper 9. Copy / paste into selection. Select none.

Open tube of choice. I used SPU coralee' 03 version B. resized by 75% x2 times, arranged on the wreath. Rename layer as tube. Give tube a D/S: 2,-2,40,10,blk.

Open ssc_lia_element 27. Copy / Paste as a new layer. Resize by 75% x2 times. Layers duplicate. Image mirror. Layers merge down. Dropshadow as before. Rename layer as cupid.

With font of choice (I used Imperfect font) at a size 36. No stroke, set with the following: Foreground: Gradient: Metal Steel. Background: Pattern: Paper 9, default settings, type out the word 'love'. While your font is still "floating" you can move it into place by dragging it to where you want it. Here I placed mine between the cupids. (So make sure your font size is small enough, if not you will need to retype with a smaller size). While text is still floating, give it an Inner Bevel with these settings:
Bevel: 2, W: 25,
S:50, D: 10, A: 8, S: 0,
Color: white, A: 327, I: 40, E: 37.
Click OK.
Dropshadow with these settings:
2,-2,50, 5, black, click ok. Selections, select none.

Crop your tag, resize your tag making sure ALL layers is checkmarked. I resized mine 85%. Add copyright info / your tagger info. For copyright info / tagger info . Opacity set to 30%. (Check these against all three of your canvas colored backgrounds (white, light & dark). If all shows up on all three canvas backgrounds, delete your canvas background layers, merge, merge visible, save as a .png file.

Personalize with names using Joli Script size 55 stroke: 1 using Paper 9. Then use Eyecandy 5 Impact-Gradient glow, followed by a dropshadow with these settings: V: 2, H: -2, O: 50, B: 1, Color: Black. Image Free Rotate: Right & 30 degrees, click ok and move into place on your tag.

You are done! YAY! Thanks for trying out my tut today, hope you enjoyed it!
