PostHeaderIcon Star of Life

This tag was made by me, Karee, on January 3, and it is original, so any resemblance to another tag is coincidence.
Open an image the size you like.  Mine are, usually, 700 x 700.
I am using the work of Tim Lowery.  I got him from PTE, but he is, now, at Artistically Inclined Licensing here.  The scrap kit I used is by Scrapz n Pleasures, and it is only at Scraps and the City here.
I used three different papers, and two different masks.  The papers I used were 4, 7, and 8.
In between the front layer of the masks and the second, you can put element 28.  Right in front of the masks, you put element 37 and fit to size.  Remember to gradient glow and drop shadow whenever you want.  I took element 31 and fit it to the lower left corner to fit to size.  Then, I mirrored and flipped it and merged the layer down.  I duplicated that layer and mirrored it.  Element 49 was placed behind 36, so it was fit to size behind it with some out on the edges.  Take the magic wand to the middle of element 36, modify to expand by 4, and copy and paste the close up.  Promote that part and delete the rest, so you have the face looking through.  Duplicate that layer, and you put the properties of screen on the front layer and Luminance Legacy on the back layer.  I took element 48 and free rotated it 90 degrees.  I sized it on the sides to fit.  On top of that, I put element 25 and sized to fit.  Element 47 was placed on the top to fit the image, duplicated, and flipped.  Element 43 was sized to fit on element 47 to appear as if it was dangling.  From there, you use tube of choice, watermark, copyright, and whatever wording you want.  Remember, questions or tags to share go to  Thanks for viewing!

For the tag below, I used the art work of Ismael Rac which you can purchase here.  The scrap kit was made for this tube specifically.  I didn't duplicate my layer with element 31.  I didn't add 36, and I did add elements  11 and 4.  Moved element 47 over, too.  Plus, my fit to size on the glitter element was bigger.

My name is Karee, and I am a single woman with no kids, except my cat, Onyx. I have been doing tags and PSP for quite some time. It has to be over 6 years, but I haven't kept track. It is what I do to relax and have fun. I run a tagging group on My New Boomer Place, but it is called Grade A Smartasses! Come over there to join in. Hoping to have more FTU and PTU tuts here for you all. Tongue n' Cheek Tagz means I put a statement on my tags, so mine have more than just a name on them! Hugz~ Karee Btw, I can't seem to get blinkies to work on my page for right now. I CT for AIL and follow a lot of blogs. As soon as I can get them to work, I will try to get the blinkies up to make them accessible.
