**This tutorial was written using Photoshop CC. I believe the instructions should work with various other versions, but they are not tested on any other version. This tutorial is my own creation. Any similarity to any other tutorial is not done purposely or knowingly (aside from the fact that the process is pretty similar in most tutorials). If you do not know how to do some of the things I mention here (like mirroring an image, adding a drop shadow, resizing elements, etc.), check out my “Tips and Tricks” tutorial. **
Kit- Karina by Hania’s Design. You can purchase it at her store, Hania’s Design.
Tube – White Lily by Ishika Chowdhury. You can purchase the tube for a limited time for only $1 exclusively at Mystical Scraps.
DS – Drop Shadow
Settings I use:
DS Settings - Blend Mode set to Multiply, Opacity set to 75%, Angle set to 120 degrees, Distance 5, Spread 0, Size 5
Open up the PSD file for the template. This will be referred to as the working canvas in my directions when switching between canvases.
Add Paper 12 to the working canvas and resize to cover it.
Add your tube to the canvas. Resize her so she fits in the canvas on the right side on top the paper layer.
Voila! The focal point of your tag is now created.
Now decorate your tag with any of the beautiful elements from the kit. Resize the elements as you add them to fit the proportions of your tag. Experiment with rotating them and mirroring them for more variety. In addition duplicate elements and use multiple times to fill in holes and add more pizzazz. In this tutorial to indicate when I used more than one of the same element I will add (X#) by the name to indicate how many versions of the element I used.
Here are all the elements I used from the bottom layers up (although they are sometimes in between layers of the template for better impact.
- Element 73 (x2)
- Element 40
- Element 13
- Element 05
- Element 44
Add a new layer to create a frame. Use the Rectangular Marquee tool to select the entire outline of the canvas. Then from the menu bar choose Select > Modify > Border. Set size to 10. Choose a complimentary style and fill in the border with the Paint Bucket tool. Deselect (Ctrl +D) the selection.
Add your license and copyright info to the tag.
Add name and any other text of choice.
Save as PNG and go share with all your friends!
