Ink Me


I am using the fabulous artwork of Elias Chatzoudis. To use his art you must purchase a license at MPT HERE. The scrapkit I am using is a gorgeous freebie kit named "Inked" by Katknda. You can pick up the kit HERE. Mask is by Becky and in my supplies. Template is by me and in my supplies HERE.

Let's get started!

Open my template in PSP and X out of the copyright layer. Floodfil the background layer of the template with white.

Click inside the heart shape with your magic wand. Selections-modify-smooth by 3. Resize and copy and paste paper12 as a new layer over the selection. Selection-invert-hit delete on your keyboard. Delete the heart part of the template. Dropshadow your paper heart 3/3/50/5. Activate your white background layer.

Resize the rose 50% and copy and paste it as a new layer. Apply becky_ mask042 to the rose. Merge the group.

Resize doodle07 50% and copy and paste it as a new layer over the mask. Place it on the right side of the heart. See my tag for reference. Duplicate the doodle and mirror.

Copy and paste element03 as a new layer. Place at the bottom of the heart. Duplicate it and place the other at the top of the heart.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer. Drop shadow all pieces thus far.

Resize the tattoo needle 50 percent and copy and paste as a new layer.

Now Crop and resize your tag. Add the copyright info, your watermark and your name. The font I used is called Zoe graphic regular and is free to use. You can find it on

Animation: the tattoo needle

Copy your tag merged into animation shop and paste it as a new animation. Go back to PSP. Move the tattoo needle down in a straight line a small bit. Copy and paste your tag merged into animation shop and paste after current frame. Check your animation and if happy save the tag as a gif!
