Stairway to the Moon

For this tutorial you will need
Scrapkit called Clara by Foxys Designz which you can purchase here
A tube of choice, I used Clara by Spazz Art which is PTU and can be bought here
Filters eye candy 4000 gradient glow
A mask of choice I used one by Trese tags number 0296
which can be found here

A working basic knowledge of psp

Open a new image 600x600 transparent.
Open frame5, copy and paste a as a new layer onto your tag.
Resize it by going to image, resize. Under pixel dimensions
click the drop box and choose pixels then change the percent to
70.  Make sure below that all layers is unchecked and lock aspect
ratio is checked.
Get element2 and copy and paste as a new layer on your tag. Right
click in your layer palette and drag this layer below your frame layer.
Resize by 70 percent or smaller if you wish. Drag with your mouse to the
top left corner as I have mine.
Grab your tube and copy and paste onto your tag.I had to resize mine
by 25 percent. Then I used the arrow tool to make it a little smaller.
Yours may be different depending on size of your tube. Drag this layer above
your frame layer and place to the right bottom of your tag. See my tag
for reference.
Open element 8 and paste as a new layer on your tag. Drag this layer below your
moon layer. Resize it using the arrow tool by dragging the box by a coner to the
size you want. Place as I have mine so it looks as if it goes up to the moon.
Open paper 9 or a paper of choice. Click on your bottom tag layer.  Copy the paper
and paste as a new layer on to your tag. I resize by 50 percent then used the arrow
to resize the rest of the way to my liking.
Click on your tube layer. Effects 3d effects drop shadow 0,2,100,15 white.
click your bottom layer again. Paste a paper of choice as a new layer. Now go to layers
load/save mask, load from disk.  Choose a mask of your choice. I used a mask called
Trese Mask 0296.
Right click on the mask layer and choose merge , merge group.
Click your frame layer and give a drop shadow same settings as before changing the color
to black instead of white.
Now add your copyright to your tag so it is clearly visible. I gave mine a gradient glow by
using effects, plugins, eye candy 4000 with glow width of 3.
Add the name in a font of choice and color of choice. Convert to raster. Now
give it a gradient glow of 3 and a light color to match your tag.
Now go to effects, edge effects, enhance. Then give a drop shadow of 2,-2,100,3 and black.
Save your tag and thats it you are done!
