Thank you Lorna for allowing me to translate your tutorials.



Mallu, Filly, Kat and Lamanouche created the tubes used here.
Lamanouche's website here and yahoo! sharing goup here
In this tutoriel I used the fantastic Gorjuss Clouds brushes from Deviantart
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
If you want to use Gorjuss Clouds brushes, browse and download them from the Deviantart link above.
Unzip the file and in PSP go to file => import custom brushes to set the brushes in your PSP brushes folder.
  1. Open and duplicate the tubes. Close originals


  2. Open a new image 650x450 px, transparent
    Select 2 colours to your liking = foreground : dark colour - background : light colour
    For this tag I used #SD594F and #A19D97 (Lorna used #6b5200 and #cead73)


  3. Fill the image with your foreground colour


  4. Open the tube Kat_640. Right click => copy
    Paste as new layer on your working image

  10. If you use Suzi Sgaï tube SS_1898, resize it to 65%. Image => mirror.
    If you are using another tube, resize it in order to match the tube's size on the tag.
    Here I used Filly's tube Misted_filly_ (926) Ethereal
    Move the tube to the lower right side of your working image.
    Layers palette : opacity 87% - Adjust => sharpness => sharpen


  11. Effects => 3D Effects => drop shadow (vert./hor. 1 - opacity 100 - blur 6 - colour #000000)

    Move the tube to the upper left corner.

    Layers palette => move the tube down under the house's tube


  14. Open the tube textesyl2 (if you are using the same colours as mine) or textesyl (if you are using
    Lorna's colours). Now if you have chosen others colours for your tag, create a new text using
    your own colours on a separate image
    Copy and paste as new raster layer in your working image. Set the text as shown on the tag

    Either open the tube clouds_asd. right click => copy
    Paste as new layer on your working image. Set it to the top (see the tag)
    Effects => plugins => FMTile Tools : blend emboss (default settings). Apply the plugin again
    layers palette => opacity 65%
