About Me

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am Vivienne, living in the UK and married with a son who now lives in Perth, Australia and a daughter who has given me two gorgeous grandsons! Paint Shop has been my hobby for more years than I can remember and I love making tags. I have always loved doing tutorials written by others and a couple of years ago started writing them myself. As well as tag tutorials, I also have a Tips and Tricks page where you will find tutorials on basic Paint Shop techniques. I hope you enjoy my blog and have fun with my tutorials. Please be sure also to check out the Tag Gallery and see some of the awesome results to the tutorials!

In this tutorial I used the awesome art of
Sadly, Screaming Demons no longer sells his art as tubes
but there are many steampunk tubes will work with this tag.

I used a fabulous freebie kit "Steampunk" from
Karry Dempsey.
You can get the kit from
Pixel Scrapper.
The kit is only available from the 4Shared link,
if you have problems downloading from 4Shared,
please check out the info on my
Tips & Tricks page. 

You will need my mask 0014
and assorted mask 4 from

I used the alpha from the kit for my text.



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


Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 650 pixels an fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste the solid gold paper into the selection,  apply the Dangerously Delicious mask and resize it 95%.

Make another layer, paste silk mixed metal into the selection, deselect, apply my  mask and resize 95%.

Paste clock 1, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste one of the wings, resize 15%, duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste heart, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste button, resize 25%, drag below the wings, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste flower leather 1, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste postcard 2, resize 3%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste brad clockworks just below the heart, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste flower gold, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste gear 3, resize 11%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste living on steam, resize 7% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste flower leather 2 on the top, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste flower metal, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste coin, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the goggles, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the key, resize 17%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the gasmask, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste your tube and resize it then check all your layers and make any adjustments.  I resized my tube 50% and moved it below the gas mask.

Duplicate the tube, apply the drop shadow to the copy and then close it off (do not move it).  Select the Dangerously Delicious mask, float and defloat it, invert the selection and hit delete on the original.  Open the copy tube, invert the selection and erase around the bottom of this one to blend it in with the mask, deselect.

Paste your letters, how you resize them will depend on the length of your chosen word, merge them together and apply the drop shadow.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
