**This tutorial was written & posted by DitzyDezigns on July 17th 2011**
***Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental & completely unintentional!!***
Here is what we will be making :
Supplies Needed :
Paint Shop Pro X2 (Any version should work)
Animation Shop
Scrapkit - Sunny Dayz By Toxic Desirez @ Scraps With Attitude

Plugins Used :
Eye Candy 5 Impact - Gradient Glow
Eye Candy 5 Impact - Glass
VM Natural - Sparkles

Fonts Used :
Impact (For main name)
Comic Scan (For phrase)
Pixelette (For credit info)

Elements Used :
Rainbow
Butterfly 1 & 4
Sparkles
FlowerRibbon1
Bee2

Lets Begin :
Start with opening a new 800 X 650 white canvas.

Open your Rainbow element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 80%. Position it so that it is centered on your canvas.

Now activate your text tool, Set your font, size & color.
I used :
Font : Impact
Size : 225 Pixels
Background Color : #ff1e81
Foreground Color : Set to nul

Now click any where on your canvas - this will open your text box, then type out the name you would like on your tag. Then click Apply. Now position your name so that it is center with your Rainbow element.
(Now leave the name layer alone, as we will come back to it later)

Open your FlowerRibbon1 element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then go to Image - click Free Rotate, set it to Left, 90.00 & click Ok.
Now position your FlowerRibbon1 element to the bottom of your name (See my tag for reference if needed)
Now go to Adjust - click Sharpness then click Sharpen.
Then go to Effects - click 3D Effects - then from the slide out menu click Drop Shadow.
(You can use my settings below or your own)


Click Ok.

Now open your Bee2 element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 20%. Use your move tool & position your Bee2 element to your liking.
Go to Adjust - click Sharpness - then click Sharpen.
Now apply a drop shadow. (Use the same settings as above)
Now go to your layers pallet - right click on your Bee2 layer - then click Duplicate. Then go to Image & click Mirror. Now use your move tool to adjust the position of your duplicated Bee2 element to your liking.
Go back to your layers pallet - right click on your duplicated Bee2 layer - then click Duplicate. 
Now use your move tool to position your 3rd Bee2 element to your liking.
Then duplicate your 3rd Bee2 layer again, then go to Image & click Mirror. Adjust the position of your 4th Bee2 element to your liking.

Open your Butterfly1 element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 20%. Use your move tool to position your Butterfly1 element to your liking.
Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen
Apply a drop shadow.

Go to your layers pallet - Right click on your Butterfly1 layer -then click Duplicate. Now go Image & click Mirror. Adjust the position of your duplicated Butterly1 element to your liking.

Open your Butterfly4 element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas , then re-size it to 20%. 
Position it to your liking.
Sharpen & apply a drop shadow.
Then duplicate your Butterfly4 layer, then go to Image & click Mirror. Now position your duplicated Butterfly4 element to your liking.

Open your Sparkles element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 50%. Position your Sparkles element to the lower left side of your name. Now go to your layers pallet - right click on your Sparkles layer - then click Duplicate.
Now use your move tool & move your Duplicated Sparkles element to the lower right side of your name.

Now activate your text tool - set your font, size & color you would like to use for your phrase.
I used :
Font : Comic Scan
Size : 25 Pixels
Background Color : #ff1e81
Foreground Color : Set to nul

Now click on your canvas to open your text box, then type in what you would like your phrase to be. I used "Have A Beautiful Day"
Then click Apply.

Now go to your layers pallet & right click on your phrase layer - then click Convert To Raster Layer -
Then go to Effects - Plugins - Eye Candy 5 Impact - Gradient Glow.

Click Ok.
Now apply a drop shadow to your phrase. I used the same settings I used for my elements. But you can change it or keep it the same, its totally up to you.

Now add any copyright/credit information that is needed for your tag.
Once you have your credit info typed out & applied, then convert that layer to a raster layer - then apply a gradient glow to that as well. This helps it be easier to read.

Now before you convert your main name to a raster layer - you may want to save your tag as a PSP file. Incase you might want to make more of this specific tag. This way if you save it as a PSP file, you can reopen it at a later time & alter the main name to whatever you want it to be.

Now once you have done the steps above go to your layers pallet  & right click on your Name layer.
Then from the menu click Convert To Raster Layer.
Now go to Effects - click Plugins - then click Eye Candy 5 Impact - then click Gradient Glow from the slide out menu - , again you can use my settings below, or your own.


Click Ok.
Now apply a drop shadow to your name. (Same settings you have been using)

Now activate your Magic Wand Tool -then click inside EACH letter in your name - then go to Effects - Plugins - then click Eye Candy 5 Impact - then click Glass. 


Click Ok.

Now keeping your letters selected -
Go to Adjust - click Add/Remove Noise - then click Add Noise -
Set it to Uniform - 40 & make sure your Monochrome box is checked, then click Ok.

Still keeping your letters selected - 
Go to Effects - click Plugins - then click VM Natural - then click Sparkles
Settings below :


Then click Ok.

Now go to Selections & click Select None.

Now Open your Animation Shop -

Go back to your PSP -
Go to Edit - click Copy Special - then click Copy Merged from the slide out menu -

Now go to your Animation Shop -
Right click on your grey work area - then click Paste As New Animation

Now go back to your PSP -

Click your undo button 3 times - now you are back to where you added the glass effect.

Now go to Adjust - click Add/Remove Noise - then click Add Noise
This time only change the noise setting to 45 then click Ok.

Then go to Effects - click Plugins - then click VM Natural - Sparkles
This time only change the Random Seed by increasing it 5 points.

Click Ok.

Go to Selections & click Select None.

Now go to Edit - click Copy Special - then click Copy Merged

Go to your Animation Shop -
Right click in your first frame you just put there - then click Paste -then from the slide out menu click After Current Frame.

Now go back to your PSP -

Click your undo button 3 times -
Go to Adjust - Add/Remove Noise - then click Add Noise
This time only change your Noise setting to 50 & click Ok.

Now go to Effects - Plugins - VM Natural - and again increase the Random Seed by 5.


Click Ok.

Selections - Select None.

Go to your Animation Shop -
Right click in your 2nd frame that you just put there - then click Paste - then from the slide out menu click After Current Frame.
