FTU- Sizzling Hot

* Click for bigger

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 X2, 
tho' any version should work.

Supplies Needed: 
Scrapkit: I'm using a FTU kit from Tasha named 
Just Beachy. You can find this kit, here.
*Give Tasha some love for the kit. ;)

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Ismael Rac.
You can find more of this artwork at Ismael Rac Store.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Template: cm_template_circles2_june_biene from Biene
on the Creative Misfits blog, here

Filters: Xero- Porcelain
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow 

Font: Carpenter Script

Drop shadow: 5 5 50 5, black.

Add your drop shadow- with shadow on a new layer ticked.
Then erase the excess shadow on the bottom edge of your tube.

Repeat these for the rest of the buttons.

'Summer' letters- use your manual color correction tool
to change to change each to white.
Then add a bevel to each:

Next we'll add some elements.
For each one I added, I sharpened & added 
a drop shadow to, unless specified otherwise.

palm tree- 60%. Mirror. 
Place on the left with the sand.

flowers- 50%. Mirror.
Place on the right.

flip flops- 35%.

glasses- 35%. Rotate 15 left.
Position near the flips flops & tree.

Move to just above the white background in layers palette.
Duplicate. Mirror & flip.

bird- 37%. Mirror. Place on the right.

bow1- 50%. Rotate 18 right.
Place in top right corner.

Add any other elements, if you prefer at this time.

Now, crop/ resize your tag to your own preferences.
Then, add your proper copyrights & watermarks.

Add a new layer.
Then, draw a circle with your shape tool:

Next, add your name on the path:

Delete your circle vector layer & select none.
Then add a gradient glow:
No drop shadow. 

Finally, delete the white background, 
merge visible, save as a PNG & enjoy. =)

I hope you have fun trying this tutorial.
