This tutorial was written assuming you have working knowledge of PSP.

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up the template. Shift +D. Close out the original. Delete the copyright layer.

Highlight Large Tag. Select All/Float/Defloat. Copy and paste a paper of choice as a new layer. Resize to your liking. Selections/Invert. Hit the delete key. Copy and paste your tube as a new layer. Hit the delete key. Deselect. Delete the template layer.

Highlight Large Frame Tag layer. Select All/Float/Defloat. New Raster Layer. Choose a complimentary color from your paper and flood fill. Deselect. Delete the template layer. Add an inner bevel to the frame:

Repeat the above for Stamp Frame 1, Stamp Frame 2, and Stamp Frame 3.

Highlight Stamp Frame 1 bg. Select All/Float/Defloat. Copy and paste a paper of choice, resizing to your liking. Selections/Invert. Hit the delete key. Copy and paste your tube beneath the frame layer. Merge visible the frame, tube, and background. Delete the template layer. Repeat for Layers Frame 2 bg and Frame 3 bg.

I figured out a way to “cheat” and make things easier on me when it comes to coloring the Diamond Tag Line layer. Select All/Float/Defloat.
Create a new 700 X 700 blank image. Flood fill it with the same color you used on the frames. Copy and then close it out. You don’t need it any more. Paste as a new layer on your working canvas just above the Diamond Tag Line Layer. Selections/Invert. Hit the delete key.

Add your elements. I used:
Bird 3: Resize 10% and 50%. I gave it a slight inner bevel.
Dragonfly: Resize 25% and another at 10%.
Silk Flowers: Resize 10% and 70%. Another I resized once again 80%.
Balloon: Resize 25% and 60%. Duplicate, resize 80%.
Button: Resize 25% and 70%.

Highlight your white canvas. New Raster Layer. Create a gradient using 2 colors from your paper or tubes. Flood fill the layer.
Adjust/Blur/Gaussian Blur
Radius: 20.00

Apply your mask. Merge Group.

Add your copyrights.

Add your name.
I used stroke 2 of a dark color, and the fill I created a pattern from one of the papers.
Add a slight inner bevel.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
I’d really love to see your results.
