Thank you Lorna for allowing me to translate your tutorials.


Sylvie, Roxane and Kara created the tubes used here.
The image "Lady's Choice" is one of Alan Ayers famous artwork. His website here Thanks to all of you


May I point out that the tubes used here are strictly for personal use.
Do not change their names and watermarks and do not upload them on other websites.
Should you need to use these tubes for any other use than personal,
please contact the tubers first for permission.


You will need the supplies here
Plugins : FM Tile Tools - Bordermania
  1. Open and duplicate the tubes. Close originals
    Save the mask 20 in your PSP masks folder


  2. Open Alan Ayer's image "Lady's choice". Duplicate twice (Shift D) and close original.
    Put one of the copies aside for further use.
    On the 2nd copy : effects => Art Media Effects => colored pencils with the following settings :



  3. Right click on the copy put aside => copy
    Paste as new layer on your working image.

    Layers palette => merge visible


  7. Image => resize 500 px height
    Adjust => sharpness => sharpen
    Right click on the image => copy


  8. Now 1 important point : you can follow the tutorial as it is (which will give you a grey scaled tag), or choose a
    colour to your liking as I have done here. If you prefer a coloured tag, just follow the instructions below(*).

  9. Open the image "Fond". Paste as new layer the copy previously done. Move the layer to the left.
    Layers palette => opacity 24% - blend mode : luminance (legacy)

    (*)For a coloured tag, open the image "Fond". Add a layer and fill it with the colour of your choice.
    In the layers palette => arrange => send to bottom.
    Go to the "fond" layer. Layers palette => blend mode : screen
    Copy and paste as new layer the copy previously done. Then follow the tutorial's other steps.


  10. Go to Layers => load/save mask => load mask from disk. Select the 20/20 mask. Apply. Layers palette : merge group.
    Effects => 3D Effects => drop shadow : vert. 0 - hor.5 - opacity 45 - blur 50 - colour #ffffff


  11. Open Kara's tube KaraT3523. Right click => copy
    Past as new layer on your working image. Move to the lower right corner (see the tag above).
    Layers palette => move down the layer just above the background
    Layers palette => opacity 52%


  12. Stay on that layer. Open Sylvie's tube Unicorn_Fantasy_21.2.07. Right click => copy
    Paste as new layer on your working image. Move forward to the upper left side (see the tag).
    Layers palette => blend mode : luminance (legacy)


  13. Open the tube Accolade. Right click => copy
    Paste as new layer in your working image
    Set the tube as shown on the tag

    Selections => select all
