This tutorial is written using Adobe Photoshop CS5 and is for those with a working knowledge of Photoshop. This tutorial can be adapted for anyone with a working knowledge of PSP.
Before we start, I would like to remind you to save frequently. This is in case your program closes on you as mine is known to do. J I save as a .psd file. This keeps your elements in layers instead of merging everything the way a .png file does. I also I do not say copy and paste your element onto your canvas. In photoshop, it is possible to drag and drop. But if you are more comfortable copying and pasting, then by all means do what is easier for you. I also use a white background while I’m making my tag but I delete it when I am finished.
Ruinations by Hayleigh’s Falling for Autumn. You can get the kit here.
The tube I’m using is from Arthur Crowe’s Beauty in Autumn. You can get it here at Arthur Crowe’s Factory. Remember, you cannot use any of his tubes without a license.
Mask is made by me called Feathered Mask. You can find it HERE on my blog.

Open your tube. Resize it to look as if she’s kneeling or on the small bridge. Place between E24 and the duplicate. For mine, I zoomed in close and erased the rail so her fingers were showing. You may or may not have to do this, depending on what tube you are using. Add a drop shadow to the bottom layer of E24 and to your tube.
