I used the wonderful artwork called Princess Dragon which is an exclusive you must be licensed to use. You can purchase this tube from PicsForDesign which can now be found here
I am using a awesome scrapkit called Colourful World which is PTU by Creative Crazy Scraps and can be found at CCS here
Font of Choice
Mask of Choice I used DBV mask113 which can be found here
The tut was written in Paint Shop Pro X4 but should work in others.
Note When I resize I use these settings: (make sure that pixel dimensions is on percent and in advanced setting it is smart size lock aspect ratio is checked and resize all layers is unchecked) also please save often and for placement on the tag you can always refer to the example tag if that helps.
Let's get started!!
Open a new image 800 X 800 pixels with a transparent background. You can resize later to meet your needs. I resize at the end by 75% to get a 600 X 600 tag
Copy & paste paper3 from the scrapkit onto your new image and apply your mask of choice. (Click layers, load save mask, make sure fit to canvas, source luminance and hide all mask is checked then click load) In layers right click on mask hit delete and answer yes to the popup. Now right click on group layer merge merge group.
