ScrapKit Girlie by the wonderful Fi here.
Look under freebies.
Thank You Fi for sharing such pretty kits with Us -hugs-.
Tube of choice. I am using the artwork of the wonderful Elias Chatzoudis. You cand find his tubes here. You must have a license to use any of his artwork.
Xero Porcelain which is a free download here.
Open the tube in psp and with Your eyedropper tool find two colors You like and then from the kit open a frame of choice. Press down shift while D on Your keyboard and when a new image opens close out the original. Go to image canvas size and put it at 800x800 and click ok. This way We have room to work and You can always crop or resize when We're done. With Your magic wand click inside the frame on the blank canvas. Selections modify expand by 5 and click ok. From the kit find a paper of choice You like and go to edit copy and paste as a new layer over the frame. Selections invert and on Your keyboard press the delete key and selections select none. Put the paper layer beneath Your frame. Give Your frame a drop shadow of choice by going to effects 3D effects drop shadow.
Open Your tube go to edit copy and paste as a new layer. You may have to resize Your tube. If You do go to image resize by percent and make sure all layers is unchecked. Go to effects Xero Porcelain and use the default settings. I did mine a couple of times to show off the effect a bit. Effects texture effects blinds with the following settings width 2 opacity 10 color black and both boxes check click ok. I did this a couple of times too. Add a drop shadow to the tube I also put my settings on -1 and then a positive 2 so that the full tube showed the shadow. Then just add any elements from the kit and remember to drop shadow. Then crop Your tag adding Your name and copyright if You have one.I also added some random word art so that the background didn't look so plain. I hope You enjoyed this tutorial.
