Beauty in red

Tutorial by Jcuttlebear01 aka JoAnn
I do these tutorials for fun and not
for any profit. I use them also as a learning tool to
help others learn the fun and art of paint shop pro.
All things I use are collected, the only thing I claim
Is the tag I make with these as my work.
This tutorial is written with the idea you
have some knowledge of PSP.
This was done in PSP 9 but should work with any.
Tubes of choice
the ding shape
Font of choice>one I used is called..ChaseCallasSH
Wording of choice
Plug in

Eye candy 5 impact HERE

Filters unlimited HERE

Bkg_Kaleidoscope HERE
Open the supplies needed and minimize them in PSP.
Duplicate the Shape that is in the supplies, by
hitting Shift D and close the original.
Canvas size 600 X 600
Magic wand>select the bars>and flood fill
with color of choice I used a gradient color.
I used ES vintage 65 its in the supplies if you
don't have it. Place it in your gradient folder in PSP.
Eye candy 5 impact>bevel Upward>default settings
Magic wand>select inside the small circles>and the center square.
Make sure you have your setting on your wand set to add shift.
Effect>eye candy 5 impact chrome>the settings I used
are in supplies import them into your eye candy 5 chrome.
In case you don't know how to do this>go to effects>eye candy 5
impact>chrome>click on manage at the bottom
this box opens>
Select import>find the supplies you downloaded for this tutorial>and
look for the one that says
select it and>open it will tell you that it was a successful import>
hit close and you will see it down where user settings are.
Highlight it and hit ok.
Give this a nice drop shadow.
This is mine so far.
Add a new raster layer>flood fill with color
you want the mask to be this is going to be the background.
Layer>new mask layer>from image>
click ok>merge group.
Duplicate>rotate>90 right>merge down
Make sure its the 2 mask layers you just merged.
Effects>filters unlimited>Bkg Kaleidoscope>Kaleidoscope 8>
Settings to 200, 215
Effects>eye candy 5 impact>brushed metal>settings>hand brushed gold>
basic settings>change the color to your background color or one
you like.

Duplicate this layer a couple of times if you want it darker.
Since I used a black bkg I did it about 3 times and merged them down.
Effects>edge effects enhance
Add drop shadow to your liking
Layer new raster layer arrange move down
flood fill with color you want your background.
This is what mine looks like so far
If your happy with the way it looks merge flatten
Add a 1 pixel border color of choice
Add a 3 pixel border background color
Add a 1 pixel border color of choice
Add a 20 pixel border>background color
This next step there are 2 ways you can do this.
Effects>plug in simple>half wrap>default settings
Take selection tool and make a square in a part
of the image you want to place in your border
Copy and deselect
Magic wand and select inside the last border>new raster Layer
and paste into selection
Effects>edge enhance>inner bevel
Add a 1 pixel border color of choice
Add a 3 pixel border background color
Add a 1 pixel border color of choice
Add a 10 pixel border>magic wand>select inside the last border
and give it the same brushed medal effect you did earlier.
Now you are ready to add your tubes
Resize your image
You can do it to your liking.
Adjust sharpen

Open the flowers or accent you want on your tag

Resize to your liking, I resized by 60 percent

Add same drop shadow as before.

Adjust sharpen
Add your lady tube>resize it by 70ercent or what ever you
need it to be.

Add same drop shadow>Adjust sharpen>move over to the right
hand side of your work.

Merge all flatten

add 1 pixel border>dark color>depending on the
color of the last border.

add 1 pixel border>color of choice

Add 3 Pixel color background
