City Swag

For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Keith Garvey, which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using City Bling by Inzpired Creationz
available at Pimp My Tags With Scraps  

Font of choice, I am using Razing

Plugins: Alien Skin 4000 Shadow Lab - use on whatever elements you like & your tube
I used the following setting on my elements 
direction 315
then top to bottom:

Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.

Let's get started!


Open a new canvas 600 x 250 pixels, white background

Open paper 14, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 75%

Open city scene 1, copy and paste as a new layer

Open car 3, resize 50% arrange on left

Open word art, resize 50% add drop shadow 5, 5, 100, 10

Cocktail 1, resize 30% use same drop shadow as on word art

Make your white background layer active, click on your crop tool
crop to layer opaque 
then selections, select all, float, defloat, modify
set selection borders 3
add a new raster layer at the top and flood fill with a metallic gradient that looks good with your tag
