Treat Me






In this tutorial I used the art of
You need a license to use Jasmine’s art, available at

I used a fun Halloween kit which was inspired by the art of
Martin Abel (tube 43-2) by Angela at
The kit is also available for purchase at

I used two masks, 69 and 0149 from Simone at

I used the font 



Unless noted, I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 95, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 600 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 6 into the selection and apply mask 69, resize 95%.

Make another layer, this time paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect and apply mask 0149, resize 90%.

Paste element 5 as a new layer, resize 75%, duplicate and mirror the duplicate. Place the railings in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste frame 3 as a new layer and resize 50%.  Select the interior of the frame with you magic wand, expand the selection by 10 and make a new layer below it, copy paper 1 and paste it into the selection.    Do not deselect.

Paste your tube as a new layer, resize as needed and position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.

Paste element 2 as a new layer, resize 35% and drag below the tube, duplicate and position either side of the tube erasing any that shows outside of the frame.  Apply the drop shadow to these two layers, the tube and to the frame, then repeat the shadow on the frame but changing the horizontal to -5.

Paste element 12 as a new layer, resize 60% and mirror, drag below the railings, place in position and apply the drop shadow (remember to change the settings back).

Paste element 3 as a new layer, drag above the railings, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9 as a new layer, resize 60% and duplicate, position on either side of the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15 as a new layer and bring to the top,  resize 50% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11 as a new layer, resize 30% and duplicate, mirror the duplicate and resize it another 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste the wordart as a new layer, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2 as a new layer, resize 30% and rotate 30 degrees in either direction, duplicate and mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments, then crop your tag, add your copyright information and text then export on a transparent background as a png.
