Street Sk8ter





In this tutorial I am using the art of Tyson McAdoo.
You require a license to use Tysons art,
you can get one here.

I am using an awesome new kit
“A Bit Emo”
by Schnegge’s Scraps.
You can get the kit here.
Thank you Schnegge, it’s a fabulous kit!

You will also require a mask.
I used Insatiable Dreams mask 598,
you can get it here.

Font used Wolf’s Rain, here.




Don’t forget to sharpen your elements after resizing and rotating, essential for a good looking tag (adjust – sharpness – unsharp mask – radius and clipping 5, strength 50).

Drop shadow used, vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 75, blur 5.


Open a new transparent canvas 600 by 550 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open paper P04_ABitEmo_Schnegge and copy it. Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection and de-select. Apply the mask and resize 85%.

Open Frame01_ABitEmo_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%. Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10. Open another of the papers, I used Paper13_ABitEmo_Schnegge and copy. Paste the paper into the selection then go back to the frame layer and apply the drop shadow.

Open Frame07 and paste as a new layer. Resize 75%, rotate to the left 20 degrees, drag down so it’s just above the mask layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Cardboard_ABitEmo_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 60%, rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open GlitterSplat02_ABitEmo_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 60%,  position on the left hand side of your tag and apply the drop shadow.

Open GlitterSplat01_ABitEmo_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 60% also, mirror and flip this layer, position on the right hand side and apply the drop shadow.

Open Wire_ABitEmo_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open word art, paste as a new layer and bring to the top. Resize 75%, position inside the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Open Cap_ABitEmo_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 25%, place in position on the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Open Button_ABitEmo_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize this also 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Button01_ABitEmo_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Chain-w-Charms and paste as a new layer. Resize 40% and apply the drop shadow. Hook the chain over one of the spikes on the frame erasing the part that would be at the back of the spike.

Open Ribbon01_ABitEmo_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 55%, rotate to the right 90 degrees, place in position on the bottom of the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Open EmoBunny and paste as a new layer. Resize 30%, sit him on the frame spike and apply the drop shadow.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer. Resize as required, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Crop your tag and resize if required and apply your copyright information and text.
