It's never a bad time for a Halloween kit, and with this one from Soxsational Scraps, it can be used all year round! Visit Soxie's blog here for info on where you can get it. 
I'm using a tube by Rebecca Sinz, available at Digital Chaos here
And here are some extras. Do not alter these in any way. Click to view full size, the save to your computer. Thanks and enjoy!




Supplies:
Kit- Gothic Rose by Gimptastic Scraps. Visit Amy's blog here for info on where you can get this stunning kit.
Tube- I'm using the beautiful work of Rossana Castellino. I purchased this tube from Dreamscape Imaging which is now closed down. You can get her work from CDO now.
Mask- Mask 13 by  Brutal Designs here
Font- Renny Hybrid
Photoshop CS5 or program of choice
I'm on a Mac, so when I use Command you may need to use Ctrl

Here we go :)

Command+N to open a new canvas 650x650, transparent background. 
Place frame 4 in center of canvas. Place paper 2 below frame.
W to activate magic wand. Click inside each open part of the frame.
Select>Modify>Expand by 5px. Select>Inverse. Hit delete on paper. Select>Deselect.
Add elements from the kit to your tag.
From bottom to top I used:
Moon
birds
cloud
pot
umbrella
lawn
clock
deco 1
cup
deco 2
rock
poison
sconce
wall
rose 2
unicorn
skull
Add tube and drop shadows.
Now let's get our mask ready! Open your mask on a new canvas.
Add a new layer above it, and flood fill with color of choice, 
or use a paper from kit .
Make sure your mask layer is activated and Command+A to Select All, Command+C to Copy.
Activate the paper layer, hit Q to turn on Quick Mask mode.
Command+V to paste the mask..it should now be tinted red.
Hit Q to turn off Quick Mask mode and there should now be marching ants on your canvas.
Hit the Add Layer Mask button at the bottom of the layer palette (rectangle with the circle in it)
Right click- convert to smart object
Right click- Rasterize layer
Drag completed mask to your tag canvas as the bottom layer
Resize it if needed.

With your Rectangular Marquee Tool (m), draw out a selection around the entire
tag, just slight smaller than the canvas. Image>Crop.
This will get rid of any stray pixels or drop shadows you don't see.
Image>Trim>Top Left Pixel Corner to remove the excess space.
Add your license and copyright info to the tag.
Add name and any other text of choice.
Merge, save as PNG and enjoy :)

Hi all! Have you seen this beautiful kit by A [Space] Between called "My Heart for You," (available in tagger and full size) because it is absolutely stunning!!! Mirella has opened up her own store to house all her stunning kits, and will have different specials during the week to keep the fun alive. Make sure to bookmark her store and blog and check in often so you don't miss out!! :) 

I made this tag using My Heart for You and a new tube by Alex Prihodko called Spanish Girl. As soon as I saw the tube, I knew they would make a great pair!! It comes with multiple layers for hair, clothes, and an option for a tattoo. You can find Alex's work here at Pics For Design.
And then I also made a tag using the sexy work of Amy Matthews. You can find her tubes at Creative Design Outlet. 
And here is a cluster frame for you all to play with. Please do not share it. This is tagger sized and for personal use only. Enjoy :)
Download frame here.

Some people are having problems opening the frame in PSP9, and since I don't use PSP I have no idea how to fix it lol. So here is the frame, you can just right-click it save it to your computer this way :)
