**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. **

FTU Mask – “Mask 07 - Torn” by Aeval Amore. This can be downloaded from my blog.
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.
Follow the instructions in this tutorial to combine Paper 11 and the mask.
Once the mask is ready, add the final result to the working canvas and resize to fit.
Add Element 83 to the canvas. Resize to fit the entire width of the canvas and position in center. Add DS.
Add Element 67 to the canvas. Resize to about 187% and position in the center of the canvas. Add DS.
Add Element 73 to the canvas. Resize to fit the canvas and position in center in front of the heart. Add DS.
Add the poser to your canvas. Resize her to fit the canvas and position her so she standing in front of the canvas on the right side. Add DS.
Voila! The focal point of your tag is now created.
Now decorate your tag with any of the 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 14
- Element 15
- Element 13
- Element 78
- Element 2
- Element 77
- Element 115
- Element 63
- Element 62
- Element 61
- Element 57
- Element 80
- Element 16
- Element 81
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!
