Don't feed

This tutorial was written by and copyrighted to Seven on 22th June 2010.

Some monthes a go I saw a taggie which looks nearly the same and I fell in love with it. *lol*
I asked the owner of it if there's a tut and she said no.
So I decided (and asked) if it's okay to made a tag (tut) which looks a bit like this but mostly with some of my ideas in it and I got the o.k. :)
Thank you so much Kathy!!! ♥

For this tutorial you will need:

- 2 small animal tubes (the ones I used are from the beautiful "Zoo Day" kit from Kristin Aagard)
- 2 fonts of your choice, a bigger one and a handwritten one (I used ToonRegular and DJBDiane)
- Mask of choice (I used WSL_Mask218 which you can get here)
- a pattern of your choice

Let's begin:

- Open a new canvas 500 x 350 px (if your name is longer you maybe have to use a larger width).

- Choose a darker colour for your foreground and a lighter colour for your background.

- Add a new raster layer and fill it with your lighter colour.
Apply your mask.

- Choose your text tool and your bigger font.
Font size 100 and stroke size 2.
Write your name and change the vector layer into a raster lay.

- Selection - All - Free and expand the selection about 3.

- Add a new raster layer and fill it with white.

- Selection none.

- Move the white layer under your name layer and add a dropshadow.

- Merge these 2 layers visible.

- Highlight your name and click with your magic wand inside of every letter which are in your lighter color.

- Add a new raster layer and fill it with your pattern.
Change it to soft light and reduce the opacity to 25

- Selection none.

- Merge these two layers visible.

- Copy and paste your tubes, resize them and arrange them on your tag.
Add a small dropshadow to them.

- Use your text tool again.
Change your background to your darker colour (no foreground colour).
Font size 20.

- Write your first part of the text and arrange it over your name.
Add a dropshadow.

- After this write your second part of the text and arrange it under your name.
Dropshadow it.

- Merge all visible.

- At least just add copyright info and/or watermark and save as.

Ready! ♥
