Template Harvest Moon by Sabre. You can download it HERE

FTU Scrapkit Halloween Delight by Sabre. You can download it HERE

Note: This kit doesn’t contain a lot of paper choices, so when filling my template I used patterns & gradients.. or use papers from another kit..
Lets Get Started.
The drop shadow I used was 2,2,50,5 color black. Give each layer a drop shadow as you go along.
1. Open your template and shift D to duplicate then close original

2. Delete the designers name layer

3. Start at the bottom and use your magic wand to select the first layer to fill. Flood fill with color or paper of choice. Once filled go to selections, select none and move to next layer.

4. Sometimes when you have layers like the reeds, dots, ect…Instead of using the magic wand I go to Selections, Select all, Float, Selections Defloat, Flood Fill and then Selections none.

5. Repeat these steps until all layers of template are filled and have drop shadow added.

6. I erased the apple.

7. Open your kit and open each element you want added to your tag. Once opened, you can simply drag and drop onto your tag as a new layer.

8. Use pick tool to resize to suit yourself. Give each element a dropshadow.

9. Open image of choice and copy/paste as new layer. Give dropshadow.

10. Save a psp image with all layers intact.

11. Hide the white background layer

12. Go to edit, copy merged, edit, paste as new image. Hit selection tool to select your tag area and go to edit, copy and edit paste as new image. Delete the first copy.

13. Image, Resize 500 x 319

14. Add your credits

15. Save as PNG file.
I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial. Please leave me a comment and let me know, or email me your finished tag. I would love to see your work. Hugs..Kathy

7. Add wording of choice. I used the font JESTER and used the pick tool to size to my satisfaction. If you want your font outlined, make sure to change your stroke width to 1 or 2, or whatever looks best. You need your foreground color to be lighter than your background for this to look good.

8. Open your 3 images of choice.

12. Open ButtonBow1 and resize 50%. Drag/Drop as new layer. Use pick tool to position and give drop shadow.

13. Open flower 4, resize 50%. Drag/Drop as new layer. Move below all frame layers. Use pick tool to position at left of tag, (see mine) right click and duplicate, Image, Mirror

14. Open Frog and resize 30%, Drag/Drop as new layer and position with pick tool. See my tag.

15. Add New Raster Layer and move above the white background layer. Flood fill with color of choice. Right click on the layer, New Mask Layer, From Image, Use drop down to choose your mask. Source Luminance checked, Invert mask data checked, click ok. Right click on layer and merge group. Use pick tool to size and position mask around your tag.

16. Add credits

17. I save all of my tags as pspimage with all layer intact in case I want to change something later at this point.

18. Delete the white background and right click on any layer and choose merge, merge visible and save as a PNG file.
