I am using this Beautiful tube by Barbara Jensen and is sold Here
The Awesome Kit I'm using is called "It's a Flower Thing" by S.G.RoweDesigns which can be bought at "Scrappin Naturally" stores Here
And the mask can be found at HorsePlays Pastures Here
Color of choice...
1close-up tube and 1 regular
1.) With Preset shape tool--light color in background and forground color closed..draw out a med size rectangle--(Tag reference = (TR)) anti-alias checked--create as vector checked--Line= solid width= 2.Now convert to raster layer.
2.) Brad 1 Re size=(R)=80% X3..place on top left corner of rectangle.. duplicate and place a little down on "frame" continue to duplicate and place around the rectangle (TR)
I had a total of 16 brads..now close the bottom layer (You can keep it closed till the end...lol) and Merge Visible all layers..
3.) With Magic wand, click on the inside of frame..selections--modify--Expand X6
4.) Copy and Paste (C&P) as New Raster Layer (NRL) Paper 11 (or one the match tube), Invert on frame layer, delete on paper layer...now crop Opaque,making sure your nodes are all the way across the canvas,and its still 800X800,move paper below frame.Select None (SN)
5.) C&P Close-up as NRL..Place under frame, resize if needed..now you want to erase the edges that are sticking out from under the frame..(or you can use your lasso tool)
6.) Drop shadow = (DS) 2,2,50,5,black---- all layers. now M.V. and move to upper right of canvas. (TR)
7.) Close out that layer..working on top layer (closed)
C&P Brad 6 as NRL--R= 80 X2 (or use a brad that will match tube,) GO to Mura's Meister= Copies-- encircle--(default settings) once made move it slightly down to the left.
R=80%, open other layer to make sure you have your circle placed right (TR)
8.) With Freehand selection tool, draw a circle around brads,trying to stay in the center as much as you can, like example...settings- point to point, anti-alias checked, feather= 1, smoothing - 0
9.) C&P Paper 10 (or color to match tube) As NRL---on circle layer invert,and on paper--delete-- crop==opaque--the same as above.move paper below frame, SN. (DS) all layers.
10.) Flower 5--R= 80% X2, place on paper under circle frame..erase any sticking out at bottom..(DS)
11.) Flower 2--R= 80%X2== C&P as NRl on paper below circle frame.mirror and place under 1st flower..now duplicate this flower, mirror,and place on the other side of 1st flower.. (DS,on both)
12.) C&P Tube of choice as NRL place on top of frame, place it nicely where it looks like shes laying inside of frame,kinda entwined.(TR) , now duplicate tube, move it just below the frame,and above all flowers, working on top tube gently erase some of the top tube,like I said so she looks like shes laying in the frame...(TR) DS bottom tube only.
make sure the rectangle frame is closed and MV. the circle,flowers,paper and tube..
13.) With a light color as before, we want to draw out another shape,grab your triangle shape and draw a modest triangle, object-center in canvas,and then move it to the top left corner, convert to raster layer.
14.) C&P Brad 5 R=80% X3, paste onto top of triangle,(DS) duplicate,and place dup. right below the 1st one (TR),continue to do this all the way around,I had a total of 14 brads, now MV. the triangle and brad5 layers..
15.) With magic wand click inside triangle,C&P paper 8 (Or one to match tube) invert on triangle layer and delete on paper, crop opaque like before.(DS Both layers)
16.) C&P close-up tube again,re size if needed,and place below triangle,making sure none is sticking out(DS) . MV. Triangle and layers below it.
17.)C&P Sticker 8 as NRL -place it above the background (DS) duplicate and mirror,merge down.
18.) C&P Flower 5 as NRL--- mirror--place on the left side, and below triangle and sticker layers--(DS) duplicate--mirror
19.) Bow 5 C&P as NRL place between the triangle and rectangle layers.. DS (TR)
20.) C&P Paper 7 (or one of your choice),place above the background layer..now add your Mask..I'm using one from Horseplays Pasture's #21---delete mask--and ungroup layers.
21.)Flower 3 C&P as NRL and place left of circle--R=80% X2,sharpen--unsharp mask (DS) duplicate R=80%--move down slightly and then Merge Down. move layer below the circle layer (only) and above the rectangle.
22.) C&P sticker 1 as NRl- place on the right side and move layer below circle layer.(DS)
23.) Sticker 9--C&P as a NRL and place between the triangle and Rectangle layers---(DS) place layer below rectangle.
24.) Butterfly 2 R=80% X3--C&P as NRL--mirror--and place on flower left bottom. free rotate to left 20% (DS) duplicate R=80% mirror (TR)
25.) Butterfly 1 R=80% X4 ---sharpen--unsharp mask. C&P as NRL place on flower right bottom,free rotate Right 20%-(DS)-duplicate R-80%--- mirror (TR)
26.) Tassel 4 R-80% C&P as NRL and place on upper right corner of tag (TR) (DS)
27.) make sure all layers are open, Merge visible and then Resize all layers 63%
Xero- Porcelain (default settings) (if desired)
28.) Add all Copy Rights and Name.
save as PNG.
I would like very much to see if you make anything with this tut.
