Party On

This tutorial was written on April 25th 2009 by Susan aka Hippiedaze.
The idea for this tag is off my own head lol and any resemblance is purely coincidence.
General Knowledge of psp is required, tutorial was written in psp 9 but will work in other versions.

Supplies Needed

Tubes of Choice I used the artwork of Martin Abel, you must have a proper license to use his work please visit CILM - HERE
FTU SCrap Kit 'Colour Me Crazy' by Simply Devilish Scrapz - HERE
Template #4 by Melissa @ Melissas Creations - HERE
Font of Choice, I used Funky Fun
Plugin Used Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow

(the papers in this kit are quite big so i resized a bit as needed)

Lets Get Started

Open the template, hit shift & d on your keyboard,this pastes the template as new image, close the original template.
Delete info layer, I resized mine a little at this point, go to image, resize, change width & height to suit, choose smartsize and make sure resize all layers is checked, if you prefer you can skip the resizing and can resize later, i just find it easier working with it at this size.
Add new raster layer, floodfill white & move to very bottom of your canvas.
On Circle layer, select all, select float, select defloat & paste paper 13 from the kit, remember resize paper a little if you want to, selections, invert & hit delete on the keyboard then selections, none.
On the Dotted Circle layer, i left this black but you can change colour if you wish by going to selections, select all, select float, select defloat, go to layers, add new raster layer, floodfill colour of choice, selections, select none.
On the Circle Frame layer, its quite bold so i also left this black, again its your choice, if you do change then just repeat step above.
Click on the Star layer, select all, select float, select defloat & paste paper 15 or one of your choice, selections, select invert, and hit delete on the keyboard then selections, none.
Click the Small Inner Star, repeat steps above with paper of choice.
On the Star Frame layer, i also left this black but change this if you wish, same steps as above. Click the Small Stars layer, selections, select all, select float, select defloat & paste paper 15 or one of choice, selections, invert and hit delete on the keyboard then selections, none.
Click on the Small Stars Frame layer, again i left black but added a slight gradient glow, go to effects, eye candy 4000, gradient glow with following settings ...
Glow Width - 3.00 Soft Corners - 25 Overall Opacitiy - 100 Colour - Black or colour of your choice.
Click on the Squares layer, select all, select float, select defloat & paste paper of choice, resize as needed, selections, invert, hit delete on the keyboard then select none.
On the Square Frames layer, i left black again and added the slight gradient glow, same settings as before.
On the Wordart layer, i changed to red, go to adjust, hue & saturation, colourise, move the hue slider tab to a colour to suit your tube, add a slight dropshadow to the wordart.
Now Click on the very bottom white layer, i used the elements glitter spat & glitter spat 4 to decorate the background, i also resized the glitter spat elements to suit.
Time to add your tube, paste on top layer of your canvas, resize to suit your tag and place where you like it, Add a dropshadow to the tube.
Add any elements you want to from the kit, resize if needed and place around the tag, give the elements a slight dropshadow.
If you didnt resize earlier, nows the time to do that crop and resize if you wish to, I resized to around 500x500 but you can go smaller if you like.
Add your name, I used Funky Fun font and added gradient glow.
