I am using the adorable artwork of Suzanne Woolcott. To use her art you must purchase a license at gorjussart.com HERE. The scrap kit I used is a fabulous freebie kit by Fantasy Moments Scraps called Sandstorm. You can pick this kit up HERE. Template is by me and in my supplies HERE.

Plugins used- Eyecandy 4000 hsb noise

Let's get started!

Open my template in PSP and floodfill the background with white.

Click inside the oval with your magic wand tool. Copy and paste paper22 as a new layer over the selection. Selections-invert-hit delete on the keyboard. Add a drop shadow to the oval frame 2/2/50/5 black.

Click inside the rectangle with your magic wand and copy and paste paper18 over the selection. Invert and delete. Add a drop shadow to the rectangle frame.

Resize frame68 47% and copy and paste it as a new layer. Place on the oval. Click inside each part of the frame with your magic wand while holding down the shift key. Selections-modify-expand by 4. Copy and paste a paper of choice from the kit over the selection. Selections-invert-hit delete on the keyboard. Bring this paper layer under the frame. Click inside the frame once again and expand as before. Copy and paste two tubes by the same artist over the selection, placing her face in the frame. Selections-invert-delete. Bring the tube layer under the frame. Do this with both squares of the frame. Resize a flower element very small and copy and paste as a new layer. Place over the top eyelet on the frame. Duplicate it and place the copy on the bottom eyelet.

Copy and paste your main tube as a new layer.

Resize the floral/feather spray element43 30% and copy and paste it as a new layer. Rotate it 90 left and place on the left side of your double frame.

Activate the friends word art. Selections-select all- selections-float- Selections-defloat and copy and paste a paper of choice over the selection as a new layer. Selections-invert-delete.

Resize the diamond strands element77 20% and copy and paste it as a new layer. Place at the top of the rectangle part of the template.

Resize the floral bouquet element 41 35% and mirror it. Copy and paste it as a new layer on the right hand side of the tag. Add any other elements of choice to the tag. I used the balloon and a bug.

Activate the white background layer and resize and copy and paste a paper of choice. Apply mask 2yv5vrq to the paper layer. Merge the group. Duplicate the mask and flip.

Drop shadow all pieces of your tag except the diamond strands element.

Crop and resize your tag. Add your copyright info, your watermark and your name. The font I used is called SBCAnasazi.

Animation: The diamond strands twinkle

Activate the diamond strands layer.

Apply Eyecandy 4000 hsb noise with the following settings:

 

Copy your tag merged into animation shop and paste it as a new animation.

Back to PSP and undo the noise you just applied. Apply hsb noise again but this time hit the random seed button. Copy the tag merged into animation shop and paste it after current frame.

Do this process one more time so you end up with 3 frames in your animation.

Run the animation and save the tag as a gif!

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!
