No Scraps - Ladybug Days

Ladybug Days

This tutorial was written by me on November 30, 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/license 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.

~*~*~* NOTE: I did this tutorial using a different shade of red, as well as the pink/purple in the second tag below and I could not get it to select the color. It kept selecting the entire background. So I skipped the magic wand part and just went to Select All then followed directions for selecting color. This step really isn't necessary, tho, as it barely changes the look of the tag, so you can leave this step out completely if you like.*~*~*~
