Thank you Lynne for allowing me the use of this beautiful kit!

Items used from the kit:

Butterfly Frame
Paper 5
Gem Flower 2

Other materials used:

Poser tube by Outlaw By Design (obdft127)
PSP you can get a free trial of the current version out HERE
for this tutorial this tag was created using version 9.01

OK, let's tag!
Remember to SAVE often as I won't be reminding you *smiles*

Step 1: Open up your needed pieces from the kit (or alternate ones you have chosen to use). Minimize in

PSP. Open up a New Image, I like room to work, we can resize it later. 700x700 pixels, Transparent

Step 2: Maximize the Butterfly Frame, copy / paste in a new raster layer. Resize by 65%. Rename this
layer as FRAME. With your Magic Wand Tool, click on the INSIDE of the frame, modify - expand 8 pixels,
click ok.

Step 3: Maximize the Paper 5. Copy / Paste as a new layer. Resize 65%. Selections - Invert. Hit your
Delete key. Rename this layer as FRAME BACK.

Step 4: Add a dropshadow to your FRAME layer with these settings:
Vertical: -1, horizontal: 1, opacity: 100, blur: 5, color: #000000 (black).

Step 5: Maximize Gem Flower 2. Copy / paste as a new layer. Resize 65%. Sharpen - sharpen. Add
dropshadow same as FRAME except lower the opacity setting down to 50. Rename this layer as FLOWER DECO. Move to the top of your FRAME. Duplicate - image - mirror. Layers - Merge - Merge down.

Step 6: Maximize your tube of choice. If using the same poser tube I have used, resize the tube 50% two
times. Add a dropshadow with these settings:
Vertical: -1, horizontal: 1, opacity: 50, blur: 10, color: #000000 (black).
Move into place of your choosing. Rename this layer as POSER or TUBE.

Step 7: With font of choice, type out your text in the top portion of your framed image. If you have the
Whisper font this is the settings I used: Size 30, no stroke. Font color: #91AAE8 and a dropshadow of
these settings: vertical: -1, horizontal: 1, opacity: 100, blur: 1, color: #000000 (black).

Step 8: Type out your name, here I used a size of 48, same settings as in step 7.

Step 9: Add your copyright info that may be needed and or your watermark. Save image as a .png file and
you are done!

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and will be back to check out more as they are created. If you
