This tutorial was written by me on May 14, 2013, using my own ideas. Any resemblance to others is coincidental and accidental. This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of psp and is written in PSPX.
Please leave some love when downloading supplies. The artists/creators work hard to make/share their work with us, so let's be appreciative. Please use all correct copyright information and follow all TOU’s. Let’s give credit where credit is due.
As always, tutorials are only a guideline. If you don't have the exact supplies, use ones you have or ones you choose.

“Namidabanshi” tube by Jenna Whyte available at ADI
Pre-Set shapes – Either squares and circles or the one I used called “n”
Starburst pre-set shape – mine is called “m” (these were in a pack I have had forever)
Flowers and ribbon elements (these are from the PTU scrap kit, “Love Spell” by AmyMarie)
Toadies – What Are You? - Weaver - Blast ‘Em!
Xero_Fritillary and Titanium

EC = Eye Candy
GG = Gradient Glow
DS = Drop Shadow
C/P = Copy and Paste
FF = Flood Fill

Now there are 2 ways to do this tag…Either with the pre-set shape as I have done OR using separate squares and circles

Pre-Set Shape:

Draw out the “n” pre-set shape_stroke 3_Black_Convert to raster
Select inside inside the single circles and the inside part of the squares_Expand by 1
ANL below shape_FF selection Black_Select none
Select circles in the squares_Expand by 1_ANL below shape_FF White_Select none

Single Shapes:

Draw out 2 black squares and place as shown
Draw 2 black circles and 2 white circles
Position as shown
Merge all visible

Rest of the tag:

Black Circles: Xero_Titanium_Default
Edge Effects_Enhance

Black Squares_Xero_Fritillary_5_30_10_24
Edge Effects_Enhance

White Circles: Repeat Fritillary but do not enhance

Duplicate circles/squares layer that has the effects
