What you'll need:

You'll need a tube of choice I am using a gorgeous tube by Keith Garvey which you can purchase at PSP Tubes Emporium HERE.

Fonts of choice - I am using a pixel font for the copyright and HobGobNF for the name.

 An gorgeous kit by Scrappin Krazy Designs called Tropical Peach. Which you can find out where to purchase by checking out her blog HERE.

Mask of choice - mine is from weescottlass creations which you can find HERE.
I used mask number 219 you'll see on the right side they are bundled in bulk downloads :)

Xero -Fritillary


Let's get started!

Open up a 700X700 canvas, we can always re-size/crop later.
I like BIG tags LOL.

Open up element 11 from the kit which is a frame, copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas re-size it so it fits nicely. Then go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify-expand by 3 add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice I used a yellow then add some noise and move it below your frame layer.

Take your magic wand and select INSIDE the frame modify-expand by 3 add a new layer then open up paper 14 copy and paste it INTO the selection make sure this layer is below the frame layers.

Open up element 30 from the kit which is a curtain, copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas re-size it a little and move it inside the frame layers use your eraser tool to erase the overhang. Duplicate this layer then mirror it. Change the blend mode to Luminace L on both layers.

I used a half tube for my tag so I copied and pasted it as a new layer and since I wanted part of it out of the frame and the rest in, I duplicated the tube layer and moved it below the frame layers, then took my eraser tool and erasers on the TOP tube layer what was out at the bottom of the frame. I duplicated both sets and changed the blend mode to each top layer to soft light.

I used element 20 from the kit which is a sun copy and pasted it as a new layer re-sized it and moved it to the top right of the frame below the tube layer.

I used element 5 , 8 and 32  from the kit which are a flower, green leaves and a coconut. I copied them onto my canvas re-sized them and places them near the bottom right of the tag.

Open up two papers I used paper 6 and 12 copy and paste one of them as a new layer and apply your mask then merge group. Do the same with the other paper. Change the blend mode of the top one to Luminance L.

Add your name in your font and color of choice then go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify and expand by 2 add a new layer flood fill it with white or a color of choice then add some noise by going to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise uniform checked, 50% noise and monochrome checked. DO NOT deslect yet go to modify and expand by 2 again add a new layer and flood fill with the color you used for your name move it below all the name layers and add a drop shadow.

Here are the settings I used

H 2
V 2
Opacity 45
Blur 4.00
Color Black

On the top layer of the text I also used Xero Fritillary I just played around with the settings until I found something that I liked that wasn't too dark and stuck out lol.

Finally add your copyright and license number if applicable save as png or jpeg whichever you prefer and we're done!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found it easy to follow.
