This tutorial was 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 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 use a white background while I’m making my tag but I delete it when I am finished.
I’m using the adorable tube Little Bunny from Trinita. You can get it here.
I used Disyas Easter Blessings scrap kit. You can find where to buy it here.
Mask: Easter 2010 Mask by Vix, you can find it here. It’s the 2nd mask. Remember to say thank you when you download.
Font used is called Gando BT. You can use any font you want though.
