Dark Romance






In this tutorial I used the gorgeous layered tube “Red Leopard”
from the latest pack 74 from
You can purchase the tube at

I used a beautiful kit called “Dark Romance” from
The kit can also be purchased at

I used mask 70 from

Font of choice.




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.



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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 8 into the selection, deselect,  apply the mask and resize it 115%.

Paste element 5, resize 90% and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1 and resize 65%.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the element and paste paper 6 into the selection, deselect and apply the drop shadow to the element.

Paste the tube, resize 65%, apply the drop shadow and position her in the frame.

Paste element 19, resize 45% and rotate 10 degrees to the right.  Select the interior of the element, expand the selection as before, make a new layer below the element and paste paper 3 into it, deselect.  I re-coloured the paper to match the tube; check out my Tips & Tricks page for help with re-colouring.   Duplicate both the tube and the paper and mirror each, apply the drop shadow to both frames and merge them down onto the papers, drag below element 1 and place in position.

Paste element 23 above element 1,  resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13 on the top, resize 60% and rotate 40 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 20, resize 50% and duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 11, resize 45%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I re-coloured this element also.

Paste element 26, resize 60% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3, resize 30%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and resize it another 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

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