Welcome to Tutorials by Vaybs
Here you find all my tag tutorials using Paint Shop Pro (I use PSPX) and Animation Shop 3.
They're all made with FTU elements ;) And if I'm doing my job right you might pick up a few new ideas and tricks on the way.
All links open in a new window;)
Layout tag is made with my Betsys Paradise Dream kit ;)

Let's start!!

open the tattoo chick supplies file, save it as a new name,
flood fill the bg layer white

Find the tube you wanna use and then choose a gradient to compliment it
if you don't have a fitting one, pick 2 colors from your tube and use the
foreground/background gradient.

Add a new raster layer and place it behind the white background
flood fill it with the gradient. then hit Ctrl+C to copy this layer.
Go to the windows layer, selections - select all, float, defloat.
Add a new raster layer and paste the gradient into the selection (Ctrl+Shift+L)
close the black windows layer.

Do the same as above to both the squares and the nameplate layer. Keep the selection on
the nameplate while adding Alien skin Eye Candy 5 Impack - Bevel at factory default settings
but do the changes shown below

Merge the nametag frame down on the nametag, and give it a drop shadow (0,0,100,6)
Just delete the gradient layer we used to fill everything now that you're done with it.

Duplicate your windows layer 3 times add sandflower special - pool shadow with different
settings to the 3 copy layers (just play around with the settings)

Add Visual Manipulation - Transmission with these settings to all the 3 copied layers.

To the original windows layer Adjust - blur-gaussian blur 15
Then VM extravaganza - transmission 2,10,25

Put the squares layer above the blured windows, below the other 3
Open the tattoo font, and add 4 tattoos to your windows, I made them white and
changed blend mode to overlay.

The font on my other text is called Sidhe.
Give the frame a drop shadow (0,0,100,8) (I left it without in case you wanna change
color of it, I tried several but ended up with the original grey)

Give your tube a drop shadow too, and remember the proper © info.
When you're done with the tag, close 2 of the windows layers, merge visible and copy.
Open Animation Shop 3 and paste as new animation.

Undo in psp and open the next windows closing the one you've used, merge visible and copy
paste after current in ani. shop. Do the same with the last windows layer
Select all (Ctrl+A) and change frame properties to 25.

And you're done!!

Thanks for trying it out, and hope you've had fun!!
I'd love to see what you've made of this.
