Pass It On

This tutorial was written on May 2nd 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

Tube of Choice I used the artwork of Lix, you must have a proper license to use this work please visit CILM - HERE .
FTU Scrap Kit ' Summer Breeze' by Fantasy Moments - HERE .
Template Used - Template -03 by BeckyP @ Becky's Creations - HERE .
Mask Used - WSL Mask 326 by Chelle @ Wee Scots Lass - HERE .
Plugin Used - Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow.
Font of Choice.

(Save Mask into psp folder before you start)

Lets Begin Open the template, hit shift & d on your keyboard,this pastes the template as new image, close the original template. Delete info layer,

I didnt resize this one I added my tube to the top layer right at the start and worked my way from there, paste tube as new layer, resize if needed and add a dropshadow.

Activate the Lgt Grey Med Heart layer, go to selections, select all, select float, select defloat then paste a paper from the kit as a new layer, go to selections, select invert and then hit delete on your keyboard. Delete the original layer. Go to effects, select eye candy 4000, gradient glow and use following settings:-
Glow Width - 3.00 .... Soft Corners - 25 .... Overall Opacitiy - 100 .... Colour - Black.
(this will be the gradient glow setting throught the tag ) .

Repeat the step above for the Lgt Light Grey Heart layer, and give this layer the gradient glow.

Activate the Black Paint layer, go to adjust, brightness/contrast and move the brightness slider to the right till its a light grey colour, click ok, now go to your colour palette, select a colour from your tube and choose as your foreground colour, grab the change to target brush from the tools palette, make sure your still on the black paint layer and fill the shape with the colour you selected.

Activate the Dark Paint layer, I simply colourised this layer by going to adjust, select the hue/saturation/ligtness, select colourise, move the sliders to the desired colour you wish.

Select the Lg Dark Grey Circles layer, repeat the first step using a paper from the kit. Add the gradient glow to this layer.

On all other layers , small hearts & circles & LOVE word layer, i choose bright colours and colourised each layer in the same way as you did on the dark paint layer. Add the gradient glow to each layer.

Activate the Pass It On layer, go to adjust, select brightness/contrast and move the brightness slider all the way to the left (-255) text will now be black.

Activate the bottom white layer, paste a paper of choice from the kit as a new layer, layers, load mask from disk and find the mask we loaded at the start (WSL #326), settings should be as follows ...
Fit to canvas - checked Source luminace - checked Invert transparency - unchecked Hide Mask - checked, go to layers, merge group & you can use the deform tool to resize to suit your tag.

Add any other elements from the kit that you want, my tag was bright so didnt add many but you decide lol .
