Items you will need to complete this project:
The Goth Chic taggers kit by Nette's NightOwl Works. This is a FTU kit, which can be downloaded from Nette's blog.
Tube of choice. I am using Mandy3a by Sky Scraps. This is a FTU tube which may be obtained at the Sky Scraps Designs store.
The free to use Goth Chic word art by Conchi which may be downloaded at the Diseñando Scraps blog.
Wee Scots Lass mask #261 which you can download HERE.
Font(s) and/or alpha of choice. I am using Verdana which is a windows system font, and Goth alpha that came enclosed with the kit.
Note that H# and V# refer to Horizontal and vertical coordinates on your canvas grid. Make sure you have View, Rulers checked in order to see the ruler grid.
When I say "Add to your canvas" I expect that you will copy and paste it as a new layer, unless otherwise state in the tutorial.
This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP. It was written using PSP X1, but should work in PSP 8 and up.
To begin, open a new raster layer canvas 800 x 800 pxls, flood filled white.
Open nnwgc3. Layers --> Load/Save Mask --> Load Mask from Disk and select Wee Scots Lass mask #261. Make sure the fit to canvas box is checked, then click on load.
Copy Merged and add to main canvas, centered.
Open Wortartgothicchic by Conchi and get gothchic4. Copy and add to main canvas, centered at H400, V200. Image --> Free rotate --> rotate left, 20 degrees.
Open nnwheart2ts and resize to 65%. Add to main canvas, centered.
Open nnwgcspatterframe3, resize by 85% and add to canvas, centered. Using the pick tool, adjust the heart just a bit so that it lines up with the top of the frame.
Open nnwgothegg1, and resize to 35%. Add to canvas centered at H200, V600. Image --> Free Rotate --> Free Rotate left, 15 degrees.
Open nnwgothegg2, and resize to 30%. Add to canvas centered at H350, V600. Image --> Free Rotate --> Free Rotate right, 15 degrees.
Open nnwgothegg4, and resize to 30%. Add to canvas centered at H500, V600. Image --> Free Rotate --> Free Rotate left, 20 degrees.
Open SkyScraps-Mandy3a, and add to main canvas, centered at H550, V400. Add a drop shadow of choice. I am using offsets, vertical of 8, horizontal of -8, opacity of 85, blur of 25, color bright green (#40ff40).
Open nnwgcbunny and add to main canvas, centered at H300, V650.
On the materials pallet, set your foreground color to transparent, and your background color to bright green (#40ff40). Using font of choice add copyright info to your tag. For the Mandy tube, that info is:

I am using Verdana, which is a windows system font, 4 points, bold and left justified.
You can now save the artist's copy of your tag as a .pspimage file.
Using font or alpha of choice, add name of choice to tag. I am using the alpha that was included in the kit and have centered the name at H250, V150. Actual location will depend on the length and size of name.
You can now merge visible, resize to 75% (600 x 600 pxls) and save as a .jpg file, and your all done!
