“Watermelon” is a PTU tagger size scrap kit created by Rene of Rebel Dezigns and can be purchased at Heartbeatz Creationz. You can visit her site here.
Thank you Rene for such a festive summer kit!

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

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up a 700 X 700 blank canvas.
Flood fill white.

Copy and paste 55 from the Frames folder.
Use your Magic Wand and click inside of it.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 3.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection.
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer above the paper.
Tap the delete key.

Add your embellishments. I used:
21: Resize 60%
7: Resize 50% - Position behind the upper left area of the frame. Erase the end heart.
7 again: Resize 60% Mirror/Position behind the bottom right area of the frame.
33: Resize 25% and 60% Duplicate as many times as you like.
Duplicate the already-resized butterfly and resize 70% - Duplicate as many times as you like.
6: Resize 30% Duplicate/Free rotate left 25 degrees
51: Resize 50%

Highlight your white background.
New Raster layer.
Select All.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection.
Apply the mask.
Merge Group.

Add your credits.

Add your name.
Give it a slight Inner Bevel:

Repeat the inner bevel if you’d like the color lighter on your name.

Resize all layers 80%.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
I’d love to see your results and show it off in my gallery.
