Pleasure is pain
For this tutorial you will need: Paint Shop Pro: I am using PSP X but any version should work. Tube of choice. I am using the wonderful artwork of Ismael Rac, which you can purchase at AMI. This particular tube was made just for me by Ismael when I was the "Stalker of the Month" at his AMI forum "The Offical Rac Stalkers." Scrap kit by Monti also available at AMI, called "Whips and Pain Excite Me." Tag template 294 by Missy at Divine Intentionz Mask of choice. I got mine from Becky at Secrets of the Imagination, but the site is closed. Any mask you like will do though. Font of choice. I used Nightmare Hero Plugins: Alien Eye Candy 3.1 Glow (optional, for the name) Let's begin: Open your tag template, and delete the following layers: Credit, By Missy, Word art by Missy, Suckers, Raster 1, glittered hearts, small hearts, heart and pixel words. Image, resize, all layers by 85%. Then resize your canvas to 650 x 650 to give you room to work. On your oval layer, selections, select all, float, defloat. Open the paper Red Fur, copy and paste as a new layer. Selections, invert, make sure you are on the paper layer and hit delete on your keyboard. Leave selected. Delete the original oval layer.

Expand by 2 and add a new raster layer, drag it below your white layer and flood fill with black. Deselect and add a drop shadow to your black oval. I used 1, 1, 60, 5 click on the circle 2 layer, selections, select all, float, defloat. Open the Red, brown, black striped paper and copy and paste as a new layer. Resize by 70%, selections, invert, and hit delete on your keyboard. Leave selected. Open the close up of your tube (or if you don't have one, then you can just resize it and make it larger) paste it as a new layer, arrange it over the striped paper layer and hit delete on your keyboard, deselect. On the white shape layer, click inside it with your magic wand, add a new raster layer and flood fill with black, apply filter Penta, color dot with the default settings. Selections, modify, expand by 2, add a new raster layer and bring it below the black layer, flood fill with white, add a drop shadow and merge the black and white layers together. Open the element Black Ribbon Pain and resize about 77%, then rotate it to the left by 8. Drag it below the oval layer and arrange it how you'd like. Open the black cuffs copy and paste as a new layer, and resize it by 30%, add drop shadow, arrange to the bottom of your tag. Open the black spanker element and copy and paste as a new layer.
