“Damon” is a tagger size scrap kit created by Vella of Wench Designs and can be purchased from Stargazer Scraps. You can visit her blog here.
Thank you Vella for an awesome kit!

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

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open a 700 x 700 blank canvas.
Flood fill white.

Copy and paste Frame 4 as a new layer.
Resize 60%
Move it up slightly on your canvas.
Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 6
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 12 Into Selection.

Copy and paste Frame 3 as a new layer.
Resize 75%
Click inside each square with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
Copy and paste your image below the frame.
Move into position.
Tap the delete key.
Merge Visible the frame and image.
Position below the circle frame paper in your layers pallet.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Add your embellishments. I used:
Wings 1: Resize 70%
Butterfly 4: Resize 30%
Black Rose 1: Resize 25%/Free rotate right 80 degrees/Duplicate/Duplicate/Mirror
Duplicate the original rose/Resize 80%
Crow Feather 1: Resize 25% and 80%
Crow 1: Resize 25%

To get the same drop shadow effect on your tube and bird that I used:
Give it a drop shadow on its own layer.
Make your Pick Tool active and pull down on the shadow.

Highlight your white canvas.
New Raster layer.
Select All.
Copy and paste your image Into Selection.
Apply the mask.

Merge Group.

Add your copyrights.

Add your name:

In your Color Pallet:
Foreground: Black
Background: Null
Stroke: 2

Make your Ellipse Tool active set on circle.
Make a circle that’s slightly larger than the frame. If it’s too large you can always resize smaller.
Center it around the frame.

Color Pallet:
Foreground: #700505
Background: #363636
Stroke: 2

Move your curser along the circle until you see a Rocking A.
Click your mouse.
A text box will open.
Type your name.
In your layers pallet click on the plus sign.
Click on the eye of the New Ellipse layer.
Highlight Vector 1 layer.
Right click/Convert to Raster layer.

Give your name a slight Inner Bevel:

Resize all layers 80%
