Rodeo Sweethearts

I am using the fabulous artwork of Keith Garvey. To use his art you must purchase a license from MPT HERE. The scrap kit I used is a beautiful freebie call Invisible by Sanie and you can pick up this kit HERE. The template I used is also by Sanie and you can get it on her blog along with the kit. The mask I used is by WeeScotLass (#105) and you can find it HERE. The horse which is animated by me, the barrel, and grass are by Grannyart. Check out Granny's blog HERE. My supplies are HERE.

Let's get started!

Open the template in PSP. Add a new raster layer and drag it to the bottom of the template. Expand the canvas to 700x700.

Resize the white rectangle part of the template by 85%. Click inside it with your magic wand. Copy and paste paper21 as a new layer over the selection. Selections-invert-hit delete on your keyboard. Now delete the white rectangle. Add a drop shadow 2/2/50/5 black.

Do this process with each piece of the template using papers of choice. See my tag for reference.

Floodfill the background with white.

Copy and paste paper 1 as a new layer. Apply WSL_Mask105 to the paper. Layers-load/savemask-load mask from disc. Merge the group.

Click inside the top frame with your magic wand. Selections-modify-expand by 4. Copy and paste a tube by the same artist as you use for your main tube. Arrange her face in the frame. Selections-invert-hit delete on the keyboard. Bring the tube under the frame, and reduce the opacity of the tube to 50.

Do the same with the lower frame, adding another tube.

Copy and paste the ribbon32 as a new layer. Place it over the back rectangle.

Resize the blue heart frame 50% and copy and paste it as a new layer. Place above the mask layer on the upper left hand side of your tag. Rotate it a bit. Click inside it with the magic wand, expand by 4. Copy and paste a paper over the selection. Invert and delete.

Resize the tan heart 40% and place on the upper right. Add a paper to the frame as you did with the blue heart.

Copy and paste the fence as a new layer. Place on the center circle. Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Copy and paste flowers of choice around the tag. See mine for reference. Copy and paste the barrel as a new layer. Put the wheat grass behind it.

Copy and paste my word art as a new layer at the bottom of your tag.

Drop all pieces of your tag.

Crop and resize the tag. Add your copyright info, your watermark and your name.
