1 Open a new transparent image 800 by 800, I always use a large workspace, you can always crop or resize later, floodfill with white.
2 Open one of the papers from your kit, I used paper 11.
3 Edit/Copy, Edit/Paste as a new layer.
4 Layers/Load/Save mask/Load mask from disk and find your wsl mask 42 with these settings:

Source luminance checked
Fit to canvas checked
Invert transparency UNchecked
Hide all mask checked.

5 Layers/Merge/Merge group.
6 Open frame 03 in psp.
7 Edit/Copy, Edit/Paste as a new layer.
8 Move a bit to the right side of the tag.
9 Click inside the frames with your magic wand with these settings:

mode add shift, match mode RGB value, tolerance 0, contiguous checked, feather 0, anti alias checked, outside checked.

14 Move one of the tube layers under the frame layer and one on top.
15 Make sure you are on the bottom tube layer and go to Selections/Invert.
16 Hit delete once on you keyboard.
17 Selections/Select none.
18 Now go to the top layer and remove the parts from the frame you don't want to be visible with your remover tool, I removed the parts in the middle and on the bottom of the frame but I wanted the tube to peek out the frame so I left the head as it was. You don't have to be careful with the remover tool because you have the tube on the bottom to cover for it :-)

30 Open butterfly one in psp.
31 Edit/Copy, Edit/Paste as a new layer.
32 Image/Resize with 25%, all layers UNchecked.
33 Move this on the tag to your liking, I duplicated a few times (Layers/Duplicate) and resized them a bit in different sizes. I also gave some of them an angle with my picktool.
34 Open gemstone 1 and bow 4 in psp.

horizontal 0
vertical 0
opacity 55
blur 10
color white
shadow on new layer UNchecked.

39 Image/Resize with 70% , all layers CHECKED or to your liking
40 Take your texttool and write down the words you want to use or use my wordart that is in the supplies. I you don't you can use a few different fonts, foreground of materials palette set to transparent and the background to black. I gave it a glow, go to Plugins/Eyecandy 400/Gradient glow with the widht set to 5 and a light color from your tag.
The name I did the same way but with the gradient glow set to white.
41 Add your watermark and proper credits if needed.
