I created this tut using the art of Jose Cano. Don't forget you need a license to use his work! You can purchase his tubes at PTE
Scrapkit I'm The Shh by Pimp'd Designz available HERE
Template from Missy. Available HERE
This tutorial assumes a basic knowledge of using psp.
Open your template in PSP. Shift+D to duplicate it. Close the original. Delete the top layer (by Missy) and the left hand square as we won't be using that. Depending on the tube you are using you may need to increase the canvas size. I increased mine to 800x800 and then cropped off the excess at the end.
To work with each template layer you need to select the layer in your palette. Selections>select all>Selections Float>Selections defloat. Add the paper you are using, invert the selection and delete on the paper layer. Finally delete or close off the original layer. Follow these steps for each layer in the tutorial.
Circle layer - copy and paste paper cc-pp-09, resize 40%, position and follow the steps above.
Merge layers Rectangle 1 and Rectangle 2 - copy and paste paper cc-pp-07
Rectangle 3 - copy and paste paper cc-pp-10
Square Shape - resize cc-pp-09 60%
Star, cc-pp-07, resized 20%
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer and position as required.
Click on the square and once again select all>float>defloat. In the square I added a head shot from my tube, free rotated 90 degrees right (or use a head of your choice). Invert the selection and delete the excess tube. Change the blend mode or lower the opacity to suit your tube.
I added the following elements:
cc-fence, resize 50%, duplicate, mirror then align so there is some overlap on the 2 fence layers. Merge together and position as desired, use my tag for reference.
cc-flower-06, resize 40%, sharpen
cc-beads-02, position as desired. Select the large rectangle (was rectangle 3), float, defloat, invert and delete the beads outside the rectangle
Add a slight drop shadow to each of your layers as that gives a lift to the finished result. I did my paper layers H&V - 0 Opacity 40, Blur 12 and adjusted to suit on the elements but choose whatever you prefer.
I noticed an issue with the wordart and the spelling of your (you're) so I corrected that for my tag by selecting and erasing as needed and moving the letters to line up again.
Using the magic wand select each letter of the words 'Here I am!' and change the colour to black using the manual colour correction tool. I selected the star above the 'i' separately to make it a different colour. While the letters are still selected add an inner bevel. I used Bevel 2, width 10, smootness 26, depth 6, ambience 1, shininess 6, angle 315, intensity 46, elevation 32, colour white.
Select the pink text and change to a colour to match your tube, again using the manual colour correction.
I did the same with the dotted line which I then duplicated to place above and below the word 'Wishes'.
Merge visible and resize if required. Crop. Add your artist copyright and license info and text, save as a PNG
