Items you will need to complete this project:
My Jilted taggers mini-kit which is available for free at Stargazer Scraps, Scrappetizing, and TKO Scraps.
Tube of choice. I am using Lucretia, by Morgana Wynter. This is a free to use tube, but you must have a license to use this tube (also free), which is available at Mistaken Art.
Wee Scots Mask #302 which you can download HERE.
Font(s) and/or alpha of choice. I am using Century Gothic which is a windows system font (or you can snag it at www.fontparade.com, and the Goth Chic alpha by Whispy's D'zines. This is a FTU alpha which can be downloaded from her blog.
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 X3, but should work in PSP 8 and up.
To begin, open a new raster layer canvas, 800 x 800 pxl, flood fill white.
Open paper of choice. I am using DCD_Jilt_Paper04AO. Layers -> Load/Save Mask -> Load Mask from Disk and select mask of choice. I am using Wee Scots Lass mask #302. Make sure the fit to canvas box is checked, then click on load.
Edit -> Copy Special -> Copy Merged, then add to main canvas, centered.
Open DCD-Jilt_Archway and add to main canvas, centered.
Open tube of choice. I am using Morgana Winter's Lucretia. Add to main canvas, centered at H550, V420.
Open DCD-Jilt_Ruffled Ribbon03 and add to main canvas, centered at H500, V550.
Open DCD-Jilt_Cross1, resize to 50%, and add to main canvas, centered at H200, V575.
Open DCD_Jilt_Candle1, resize to 75% and add to main canvas, centered at H130, V535.
Open DCD_Jilt_Candle3, resize to 50%, and add to main canvas, centered at H200, V600.
On the layers pallet, drag Candle1 (Raster6) behind the cross layer (Raster5). Then click on Raster7 (Candle3) to activate.
Open_Jilt_Heart2, resize to 75%, and add to main canvas, centered at H200, v650.
Image -> free rotate -> rotate left, 48 degrees. Using your pick tool, realign the heart at H200, V650.
Open DCD_Jilt_Fabric Flower1, resize to 75%, and add to canvas at H650, V650. Free rotate -> right -> 30 degrees.
Open DCD_Jilt-Rose1, resize to 25% and add several amongst the greenery on the archway, to taste.
Add a drop shadow of choice to all the elements on your main canvas except for the paper (Raster1).
I am using Offsets Vertical of 5, Horizontal of -5, Opacity of 85, blur of 25, and color black (#000000_.
Return to your top layer. On the materials pallet, set your foreground color to transparent, and your background color to White (#ffffff). Using font of choice, add the copyright information to the tag. For the Lucretia tube, that information is:

I am using Century Gothic, 4 points, bold and centered, free rotated it left, 90 degrees, and located it at H650, V400.
You may now save the artist's copy of your tag as a .pspimage file.
Using font of alpha of choice, add name of choice to tag. I am using the Goth Chic alpha by Whispy's D'zines, and have located the name at H450, V675. Your actual location will depend upon the size & length of the name you are using.
Add a matching drop shadow to the name.
Drop the white background layer, and merge visible. Resize the tag to 75%, and save as a .png file, and you're all done!
