This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind.
Any similarity to any other tutorial(s) is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of PSP
and was written using PSP XI, tho' any version should work.

This is a PTU kit & is part of an exclusive collab at SATC.

Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so
& have purchased the tube.

Let's do this! =)
Save your progress often.;)
Drop shadow used in this tutorial is 2 4 48 4.
Open up a new image, sized 650 X 650 px.
Add a drop shadow to your tube.
Now let's add some elements.
For each element I resized, I sharpened & added a drop shadow.
Copy & paste greenery.
Drag this to just above your mask layer & resize 110%.
Duplicate it & pull them out a little on either side of the frame.
Erase any excess stems that you don't want. Drop shadow both.
Next add the flowerscatter above the greenery.
Resize 65% & duplicate. On the duplicate, mirror & flip.
Pull both out on either side of the frame.
Then recolour one of them blue. Drop shadow them both.
Next, add flower 3 above your frame in layers & resize it 40%.
Sharpen & add a drop shadow.
Place it over the bow on the frame.
For the dragonfly, resize 27%. Then rotate 17 left.
Place to the top right & duplicate. Resize the 2nd one 80%.
Sharpen & drop shadow both.
Copy & paste hearts. Resize 45%.
Erase a bit of the excess string. Place to the right on the frame.
Sharpen & add your drop shadow.
Next, add the heart pillow, resized at 45%.
I placed mine to the bottom right in front of the log of my tube.
Sharpen & drop shadow.
I added the sparkles over my tube & erased the excess I didn't want.
Now, add the optional word art.
Recolour & add noise if you prefer.
Position it like my example & add a drop shadow.
Now, resize &/ or crop your tag as desired.
Then, add your name.
Add a small gradient glow set at 3:
Add your drop shadow.
Merge visible & save as a .PNG & you're done.
