Cluster Frame TOU

Thank you SO much for being so interested in my cluster frames. I love that you enjoy using them.

However I do have a request, please do NOT credit me as the cluster frame on your tags. Although I assembled it, I do not believe I deserve any such credit. If anything, please list Scrapkit by, (assuming you didn't add other bit by a different designer to your tag of course). I'd prefer not be given credit for simply assembling the cluster frame. Thank you ♥

This is the tag we'll be making so, here's what you'll need:

• Tube I used was by Edward Reed which I purchased at CILM however he now sells his art at MPT and may only be used with appropriate license, please do not use this tube if you do not have a license to do so. Another update - he now sells at CDO you can purchase this tube here.

• Mask I used was from Creative Misfits blog, you can get it here I used KyLie_Mask_mf01.

• I used the scrapkit by Kim available also on the Misfits blog here.

• Frame I used was by Ivy's Inspirations and you can get it here I used frame 1.  Her site is no longer online boohoo so here is a link to get the frame

• I love filters lol, so here's what I used: Super Blade Pro (coconut ice setting), Xero Porcelain, Xero Mistifier, Andrews 10 Revolving Door, Eye Candy 4 Gradient Glow, Eye Candy 5 Perspective Shadow.

• Font used was Jayne Print, but use whatever font you wish.

Okay ready, let's go, this will be fun and easy!

• Open up new image 700 x 700, with white background, we can crop and re-size later as needed. Paste frame as a new layer, re-sizing as need be, I re-sized by 25%. Using your selection tool (set on rectangle) draw a selection within the bottom rectangle, the pink one, add a new layer undearneath the frame. You should have a selection that will cover that whole inside of the frame that way. Paste paper of choice into selection on that new layer you just added. I used paper 7 it had such pretty colors had to use it! With your selection still active, apply a gaussian blur of 5 and apply Andrews 10 Revolving Door with the default settings. Select none.

• On white background layer, add new layer, select all, and paste paper of choice into selection on that new layer. I used paper 7 again and applied gaussian blur of 5 again too. Apply mask and if happy with it merge layer group. I resized mine by 95% and moved just a smidge, needed to have it more centered with the frame.

• Add tube of choice to your pretty tag and any elements you like to have on it. Re-size your tag to what you want your ending tag size to be. Sharpen any layers that need it and also apply any drop shadows. I used Eye Candy 5 Perspective Shadow, however if you don't have it, drop shadow in PSP works just as great. On the frame I applied Xero Mistifier, just softened it up a lil bit, totally a personal preference of course. I also applied Xero Porcelain to the tube layer, gives it a pretty glow. I used just default settings on both filters.

• Time to do our text! What I did is on the layer underneath the frame (the one we applied the Andrews filter to), copy and paste as a new image, which gives you a pattern in your material palette. Choose your font and go to your material palette, have it set to pattern and find the pattern you just pasted as a new image. Type your text and on mine I applied Super Blade Pro coconut ice setting, adding a slight gradient glow using colors from my tag and of course a nice blurry drop shadow. Now all that's left is to add the artist's copyright and your tagger's watermark, hide your white background if you don't want it visible, save as a PNG and voila you're done!
