Purple Lingerie
« on: March 31, 2012, 03:24:25 pm »

I've used PSP9 for this tutorial, however you should be able to create this tag in all versions.

Supplies needed:
2 tubes or a tube and close-up of choice.  I'm using ones by Wassim Jelassi which is available from ADI
Please do not use the same tube without the appropriate license.
Font of choice.  I've used Ephesis.
My gold pattern. Right click and save this to your computer, where you can easily find it. 
You may colourise this to suit your tag, if you wish.

Xero - Abstractor
Alien Skin Eye Candy 5:Impact - Gradient Glow (optional)

1.  Open a new transparent image 600 x 250 pixels.  Also open your tube and my gold pattern.

2.  Select two colours from your tube - a dark colour for your background (I've used black) and a medium colour for your foreground.

3.  Set your foreground to a foreground-background gradient with the following settings:

Flood fill your blank canvas with this gradient.

4.  Apply Xero - Abstractor with the following settings:

5.  Effects – Edge Effects – Enhance. 

6.  Set your foreground to the gold pattern I've supplied.  Select your pen tool, with the following settings:

I've used the Diamond line style, but you may wish to use a different style for your tag.

Please note:  This step may be slightly different, depending on which version of Paint Shop you use. 
Basically, you want a line on a layer of it's own - please create this as appropriate to your version.

Expand your tag window, so you can see the edges of your canvas.  Hold the shift key down, and draw a line across your tag, starting off the left edge of your canvas and extending beyond the right edge of your canvas. 
See my screenshot below:

7.  Move your line into the centre of your dark colour and convert to raster once happy with the placement.

8.  Duplicate your line, and go to Effects - Image Effects - Image Offset and apply the following settings:

Your duplicated line should move down into the next dark area of your tag, but you may need to move it slightly, depending on your line settings and placement. 

Repeat this step so you get three lines down your tag.

9.  Hide the background layer and merge your three lines together.  Unhide the background.

10.  Paste your tube or close up and move it to the right-hand side of your tag.  Apply a drop shadow of choice.
Go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat.  Activate your lines layer and press delete.  Selections - Select None.
Lower the opacity on your tube to suit your tag - I've lowered mine to 50%

11.  Paste your main tube on the left hand side of your tag and apply an appropriate drop shadow.

12.  Add a new raster layer and flood fill using the gold pattern I've supplied.  Selections - Select All.  Selections - Modify - Contract by 2.  Press delete.  Selections - Select None

13.  Add your name in font of choice.  Add a Gradient Glow using your medium colour and a drop shadow, if required. 
Add your copyright and license number (if necessary).
And you’re done :)

Here's a second example, created by the very talented Spawn, using the wonderful art of Alicia Mujica
