This tutorial was written by me on May 23rd 2012
and is entirely my own ideas and work.
Any resemblance to other tutorials on the internet
is purely coincidental.
Do not rip this tutorial apart.
This tutorials is done in PSP 9 and a basic understanding
of the program, it's tools and effects is required.
I am using GEMINI Birthday Girl and Inzpired Creationz Posh Birthday Kit
which is part of the Collab available here at Scraps and The City
Mask of Choice
Effects : Muras Meisters Copies & Eye Candy Gradient Glow
Open your tube up in PSP
Open a 650 x 650 Transparent Canvas
Copy and Paste as a new layer - resize by 77% and sharpen.
Using your Preset Shapes Tool and a color from your tube, draw out a oval, sizing like the one in my tag. Convert to raster layer.
Now change your background color to white and draw out a smaller oval shape, placing as my tag. Convert to raster layer.
Now choose your first color from your tube, and your font of choice, type out the words BIRTHDAY WISHES, and convert to raster layer. Use Muras Meisters Copies default settings, changing tile gap to 2 or 3, apply.
Back to your white oval layer, use your magic wand, click anywhere outside the shape and then back to your words layer, delete. Select none.
Add any other effects you like to the ovals if desired.
Add a Gradient Glow to both oval shapes - color of choice.
