**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. **
PTU Kit- “Loves Delight” by Tiny Turtle Designs. Available at the designer’s store, Tiny Turtle Designs.
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 a new canvas (Ctrl +N) 700 x 700, transparent background. This will be referred to as the working canvas in my directions when switching between canvases.
Add Element 123 to the canvas and resize to fit the entire canvas. Position in center. Add DS.
Add Paper 6 to the canvas. Resize to fit behind the frame so that the entire opening has the paper behind it.
Add your poser to the canvas on top of all your layers. Resize her so she fits on the left side of the canvas. Add DS.
Switch to the PSD file of your tube. Use the Rectangular Marquee Tool to draw a box around the head area of the poser. Copy (Ctrl + C) the selection and return to your working canvas.
On your working canvas make sure the paper layer is selected then paste (Ctrl + V) the copied selection. Resize the selection so that the head fits to your satisfaction in the center of the frame. Use the Eraser tool to erase any overhang of the pasted layer.
Voila! The focal point of your tag is now created.
Now decorate your tag with any of the toxic elements from the kit. Resize the elements as you add them so 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.
- Element 45 (x4)
- Element 6 (x4)
- Element 117 (x2)
- Element 92
- Element 95 (x2)
- Element 94 (x2)

- Element 16
- Element 128
- Element 78
