Race Girl


I am using the gorgeous art of Jose Cano. To use his art you must purchase a license at MPT HERE. The scrapkit I used is a fabulous freebie by Lori at Wacky Scraps. You can pick this kit up HERE. The mask I used is by Becky and is in my supplies along with the template made by me. HERE

No Plug-ins required for this tag.

Let's get started! This is an easy one :)

Open my template in PSP. Floodfill raster 1 layer with white. Take your magic wand and click inside the top and bottom horizontal strips while holding down your shift key. Copy and paste paper 5 as a new layer over the selection. Selections-invert-hit delete on the keyboard. Delete the gray strips.

Activate the white background layer. Add a new raster layer and floodfill it with black. Apply Becky_Mask042 and merge the group. Stretch if desired using raster deform tool.

Copy and paste doodle of choice as a new layer. Place below the bottom strip. Resize it by 120%. Duplicate the doodle and flip it.

Copy and paste frame of choice as a new layer. Click inside it with the magice wand. Selections-modify-expand by 6. Resize a matching paper 480x480 and copy and paste it as a new layer over your selection. Selections-invert-hit delete on the keyboard. Move the paper under the frame. Duplicate this paper and mirror it. Erase on the right side so the checkers from the paper below show.

Resize the word art 90% and copy and paste it as a new layer. Place at the top of the tag.

Copy and paste the steering wheel as a new layer into the center of the frame.

Copy and paste the flags as new layers. Put one on each side of the tag. See my tag for reference.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer. Drop shadow all pieces of the tag. Crop and resize the tag to your preference. Activate the mask layer and do your copyright info, watermark and your name. Add a gradient glow if desired to your name. The font I used is called Hurricane and is ptu.

Animation: the steering wheel

X out of all of the top layers above the steering wheel. It should be the flags and the tube.

Activate the steering wheel layer and Edit-copy and paste into animation shop as a new animation

Go to effect-insert image effect and apply the following settings to the wheel:


Back to psp and copy merged the lower layers into animation shop and paste as a new animation. Duplicate the tag so it has 23 frames. Activate the wheel. Edit-select all- Edit Copy. Activate the tag Edit-select all- Edit paste into selected frame. Place into the center of the frame.

Go back to psp and X out of the layers that are open,plus the wheel and open the ones that you had closed off before. (flags and tube) Copy this merged into animation shop and paste as a new animation. Edit-copy. Activate tag (lower part) and Edit-paste into selected frame. Arrange the "top" part of the tag over the bottom.

Select all and change the frame properties to 4.

Run the animation and if happy save as a gif!

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!
