kit My Obsession – it can be bought at Digital Scrap World
my mask – right click to save
an image and a tube of your liking – I use the wonderful artwork of Lia from www.linmida.com
* Open a 600*400 px. canvas. Save.
* Open paper 10. Resize to 600*600 px. (SmartSize). C/p onto your canvas. Close the original paper without saving.
* On your canvas go to the empty layer 1. Select all/float/defloat. Then Crop To Selection.
* Add a new layer above the paper layer. Flood fill with white.
* Apply my mask to this white layer with the following settings:
* Merge group.
* Apply a shadow.
* Open Cluster 2. Resize to 20%. C/p to the canvas. Close the original without saving.
* Move it a little to the right.
* The cluster already has a shadow applied, but you can add some more, if you like.
* Open the image and tube, you would like to use. I used Lia’s (www.linmida.com) amazing artwork, so I started tubing/extracting the dog. C/p them to your canvas. Resize if needed. If you use the same images as me, then it wont be necessary.
* With the freehand selection tool trace around the round frame in the cluster. Go to the image layer and promote selection to layer. X-out the original image layer.
* If needed drag the promoted selection layer beneath the cluster.
* Be sure, that your tube is the top layer.
* Add a shadow to your tube.
* Add text and copyright information. A TIP: you write the copyright sign by holding down the ALT button and then typing 0169.
I used the following fonts:
Some Weatz Swashes for my name and Small Type Writers to the copyright info and the title “Pets”.
* Optional: I applied a gradient glow (with Eye Candy 6) to both my name and the copyright info.
The finished tag:
I hope you enjoyed!
