I used Jasc Paint Pro Shop 9 and Eye Candy 5.
This beautiful Spring kit is ftu and created by "Laurie Made Me Scraps". It is called "A walk in the woods" and you can get it HERE.
The cute  yet naughty tube in this tag is by Scarlet Gothica . This is one of her FTU tubes; however, I am not authorized to share this tube. I received it in a yahoo group I am in called "Dragon's Lair Tubes" and you can join HERE
I have provided a layout to this tag in my supplies and you can get it HERE.


Tutorial
Open up the supplies I have provided for you.
Delete the copyright layer.
Select the tube you want to use and insert it in to the tag.
Copy your tube and paste as a new layer. 
Mirror and Resize about 200% or what ever looks best according to your tube.
Place this new layer right beneath the frame raster but on top of the background elements.
Effects-> Artistic Effect-> Sepia Toning
Then drop the raster opacity to 65.
NOW ADD YOUR NAME AND COPYRIGHT!
Convert you Name vector to a raster layer.
And which ever font you decided to use.... apply EyeCandy 5 Bevel to it using these settings.

"MidSummer's Rain" -FTU Tut



This was a tag that I REALLY enjoyed making!!!! I made it for my sis’s (Nae) group “Afternoon Delight” on Aimoo,  hince the name on the tag. It was for her Spring/Summer Challenge… and this tag one! Which was a shock to me because there are some AMAZINGLY TALENTED women in there that had made some better than mine!!!!
Supplies
The really cute tube is by Archie Dicken at CDO. You can purchase it and get the license HERE.
This Kit used is a Freebie called “SunCrushed” by SeaShell Scraps.. And you can go to their blog… HERE
This Mask is one that I have used NUMEROUS times and have had it for a WHILE… I am not sure who created it… Sooo if you know PLEASE email me and let me know so I can give them credit. I use a lot of the masks that were in that folder, but I do not know what has happened to the TOU that came with them.
The filters I am using are DSB Flux and Alien Skin 5: Nature.
