This tutorial is for those that have a working knowledge of PSP. This tutorial was written by me on March 26, 2013 and any resemblance is purely coincidental. I use PSP 9, but any version should work. I do not allow my tutorials to be translated and please do not claim them as your own. If you would like to share the tutorial please send a link to my blog.  Thank you!


Things Needed:

Tube/Image of choice:  I used the work of the amazing MichaelCalandra- You can purchase his work through CDO’s store
Kit of choice: I am using the awesome kit called Can’t beTamed by Pimp’d Designs aka Cora
Plugins: None
Masks/Templates: None
Font, Animation, or other items needed: I used Rock's Death 

Let’s Begin:

1)      Open a new image 600 x 600 (we will call this our working image)

2)      Open pd-frame-04.png and resize by 50%

3)      Copy and paste as a new layer on our working image

4)      Image—Rotate by 90 degrees to the left

5)      Move to the left of our working image

6)      Now duplicate this layer and move over to the right so that there is a little space between the two and duplicate again and move over to the right again so there is a little space again

7)      Now you have a total of three frames – Merge visible

8)      Now using your magic wand, click inside the center of all 3 frames (if using one paper)

9)      Create a new raster layer on our working image

10)   Open paper of choice at this time

11)   Copy and paste into selection

12)   Send this layer to the bottom  so it’s beneath the frames

13)   Highlight your top layer

14)   Now open up the hand cuffs and resize by 50%

15)   Copy and paste as a new layer on our working image

16)   I selected little parts of the handcuffs so that it looks as if the hand cuffs are connected to our frame

17)   Open the mask inside the kit

18)   Resize by 50% and then again by 85%

19)   Copy and paste as a new layer on our working image

20)   Move slightly to the right of the frame

21)   Using our deform tool to rotate to the slight right

22)   Adjust-Sharpness-Sharpen

23)   Add a nice drop shadow I used 0,0,100,5 black UN-Check shadow on new layer

24)   I applied the drop shadow twice to both the hand cuffs and mask if you want them to pop a little more

25)   Open the staple and resize by 50%

26)   Copy and paste as a new layer on our working image

27)   Move into place of your choice

28)   Duplicate this layer and move the other staple to your liking

29)   Add drop shadow again (using the same one you used in step 23)

30)   Open flower of your choosing (I’m using flower 3)

31)   I resized the flower to my liking and put it right in the center of our hand cuffs and mask

32)   Add your drop shadow again

33)   Open pd-glitter-01.png and resize by 50%

34)   Copy and paste as a new layer on our working image

35)   Duplicate as necessary and place to your liking to have the splatter effect behind the tag

36)   Open feather of your choosing

37)   Resize again by 50%

38)   Paste as a new layer on our working image

39)   Using your deform tool and rotate so that your feather are sitting on top of your frame

40)   Duplicate—Image—Mirror

41)   Using your move tool move to place again to your liking

42)   Open pd-metal-bow.png resize by 75%

43)   Copy and paste as a new layer on our working image

44)   Move to the top center and add our drop shadow again

45)   Add your tube as you wish now, I used a tube and then the close up of the same tube to make the part that looked empty look fuller in the frames

46)   Add your text and COPYRIGHTS now, and we are finished....

My Disclosure

My tutorials are just that- Mine.In other words I really don't want them on other sites or translated. If you would like to share my tutorial then please do just that by sharing the link to my blog or a link straight to the tutorial. At the time I write the tutorial I use the artists website at the time as well as the kit designers link at the time and it would take quite some time to go back and edit all of my tutorials and posts to reflect all changes that happen. So if by chance you cant find something or a link I provided has gone bad please contact me and I will do my best to help! I write tutorials in hopes that others will use them as a guide and send me their results so I can also post others results to show people other samples other than my own. All tutorials are written by me and any resemblance is purely coincidental. I write my tutorials in PSP 9 but they should work with other versions as well. Not all tutorials are for beginners but all levels of creators are encouraged to try working on the following tutorials!!! Have fun... and be copyright safe!!!!
