This tutorial is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tuts is purely coincidental. This tutorial is for personal use only, using it for monetary gain is against our TOU's. Supplies Needed: ~Gimp (any version will do). ~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of Karina Dale, you must have a license to use this art which you can get from PTE HERE. ~Background image of choice. I used an image from Judy Mastrangelo's Image pack 1. Her art is available for purcahse at PTE HERE. ~Dark Angel PTU scrapkit by Crazy Carita Scraps which you can purchase from PTE HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used SD mask 9 which you can get from Scrap Dimensions HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Signet Roundhand Italic. Let's get started!!!!! 1. Open a new layer ( I prefer a large canvas, so I make mine 1050x656). Make your canvas transparent (Layer > Transparency > Color to alpha). 2. Open element 11 (frame), add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open Judy Mastrangelo image center it behind frame, remove excess using a cutting tool or eraser from your tool box. ~I made this image black & white to better match the tag (Colors > Desaturate > Lightness). 4. Open tube, add drop shadow. 5. Open and place the following elements: element 16 element 17 element 18 element 21 element 22 element 29 element 30 element 36 element 38 element 40 ~Some elements may need to be sized down. Using the Scale Tool in your tool box adjust pixels to desired size~ ~Add drop shadow to all elements~ 6. Open Paper 2. 7. Open mask. 8. Add mask to paper (click HERE for a tut on using masks) 9. Merge layers (Image > Merge Visible Layer). 10. Crop image (Image > Autocrop Image). 11. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 12. Add copyright info and name. 13.
