This tut is written using a beautiful PTU kit created by WishingonaStarr called Green Goddess which can be purchased at Scrappetizing.   It was written using PSPX, but is adaptable to any version and is for people with a good working knowledge of PSP.

Supplies: Vix_Mask-404 which can be downloaded from her site here.

Open a new image 550 by 550, fill with white, select all, add , select all, add new raster layer, c/p BonusPaper4 into selection. Open Vix_Mask-404, highlight the BonusPaper4 layer, Layers/New mask layer/from image, scroll the dropdown to the Vix mask, ok.

C/P GreenGoddess-.Frame as new layer. Open GreenGoddess_Poser, resize to 72%, c/p as new layer, position on the left side of the unicorn frame. C/P GreenGoddess_Feather on a new layer, mirror, position on the right of the image, drag this layer below the unicorn frame layer. Open GreenGoddess_Green, resize to 65%, position over the right side of the frame layer, duplicate. Take the freehand selection tool and make a selection of the top three leaves, c/p on new layer. Select none. Position, resize, rotate these leaves where you want them on the right side of the image.  I duplicated the leaves once again and moved them further down on the right side of the frame.  Highlight top layer, merge down twice. Add a nice drop shadow.

Open GreenGoddes_Floral, resize to 65%, c/p as new layer on the top left of the image, duplicate. Drag both layers under the poser, use the deform tool to resize as needed, rotate and position these floral layers so they look good to you. Merge the top floral layer.

C/P GreenGoddess_CagedBird as a new layer, position the top of the cage over the top of the  frame, resize if needed with the deform tool, add a drop shadow. C/P GreenGoddess_HummingBird as a new layer, resize and position with the deform tool. Crop any excess white background space on the tag making sure you do not cut off part of the mask or any element’s drop shadow.

Now it’s time to add the text, watermark, and copyright information. Export as a jpeg and you’re done!
