This tutorial was written by me on 25 September 2012. Any similarity to other tutorials is not intentional.


Tube of choice. I am using a gorgeous tube by Marika. You can purchase her art and a license to use it at CDO

Scrapkit - I used a mini kit by Scottish Butterfly called black Skull. You can download this kit HERE

Template - I used Template 80 by Blissfully Beth, you can download it HERE

Mask - I used Vix Monday mask 1, which you can download HERE

Filters - Xero Radiance and Porcelain, Eye Candy 4000 gradient glow

Font of choice, I used Hasta La Pasta NF

Don't forget to leave some love when you download!

Let's start!

Open your template, shift D to duplicate and delete the original. Delete the credits layer and the line 3 layer. Close the background layer and crop. Re-size the tag 650 x 476. Increase the canvas size 750 x 576. Open the background layer and floodfill it white. Move the words down.

Line 2 Layer - selections, select all, float, defloat, copy paper 3. Selections, invert, delete, select none. Delete the original template layer. Apply a gradient glow and drop shadow.

Repeat for the other template layers, this is what I used:

Line 1 - paper 1

Circle - paper 5

Circle frame - paper 3

Create a new raster layer above the background layer. Selections, select all, copy paper into selection, select none. Apply your mask and merge group.

Drop shadow each element as you go.

Copy and paste the wire and place towards the bottom of the tag.

Copy and paste element 2, the star swirl. Move to the top right. Duplicate and move to the bottom left.

Copy and paste the yellow and black stars as your top layer.

Copy and paste the bow, re-size 70% and place on the left of your frame.

Copy and paste the flower, re-size 80% and place on the left of the frame. Duplicate and image mirror.

Copy and paste the spiky heart, element 4. Duplicate and place them together at the bottom of your tag.

Add some sparkles.

Copy and paste your tube, effects xero radiance, just hit random until you see an effect you like. Duplicate the tube, and on the copy, adjust blur, gaussian blur 4. Change the blend mode to soft light. Drop shadow the original layer.

Apply a gradient glow to the word art layer.

Add your name, re-size your tag, and add your artist's copyright & you're finished!
