You need a license to use Tin’s art, available at

The kit is called “Dance of Light” by
This is a really awesome kit with loads of elements, papers and wordart
and can be purchased at

I used mask 18 by Millie at

I used the font



I used a drop shadow of vertica 0, horizontal 5, opacity 95, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 and fill with white.

Paste Frame 8 as a new layer and resize 50%.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 5, make a new layer below it and paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and move into position.

Paste your tube as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I used layer 2 of the tube mirrored and resized 85%.

Paste Mask as a new layer, resize 70%, drag below the merged layer and position on the left at the top, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and move down and to the right.

Make a new layer above the white layer, select all, paste paper 3 into the selection and apply Millie’s mask.

Paste Weeds N Things as a new layer on the top, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Skulls as a new layer, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Cloud 1 as a new layer, resize 60%, drag below the tube and position on the right.

Paste Mesh as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Leaves as a new layer, resize 65% duplicate, mirror one copy,  place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

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

Paste WA2 as a new layer, resize 35% and place in position.

Paste Cross as a new layer and drag above the tube, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Photograph as a new layer, resize 15% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Brad as a new layer, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Flower 1 as a new layer, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Candles as a new layer, resize 45%, drag above Weeds N Things, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Flower 2 as a new layer, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Mushroom as a new layer, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Raven as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Paste Rose Embl as a new layer on the top, resize 50%, duplicate and close off the duplicate for now, place the original in position on the skulls and apply the drop shadow.  Duplicate Skulls, drag the copy over the roses and, using my tag as reference, do some erasing around the roses so they are around them.   Open the duplicate roses,  bring to the top, duplicate again flip one copy and mirror the other,  erase most of them just leaving a few at the front, apply the drop shadow to each.

Make a new layer just above your white background layer and fill with black (this is just so you can see what you are doing).

Paste Play of Light as a new layer immediately above the tube,  resize 70%, position on the tube,  take your Eraser tool with size set to 50 and opacity set to 10 and erase the hard edges all around the element and blend them in. 

Paste Lights as a new layer, resize 70%, mirror and place in position, change your Eraser tube opacity to 100 and erase any that show outside the tag, I had some showing at the bottom.  You can now delete the black layer.

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