This tutorial was written by me on April 3, 2014.
It was made out of my own creation and any similarity is purely coincidental.
I used PSPx2 but any version will do. 

Artist: Selina Fenech
I bought this tube at Creative Design Outlet
Unfortunately, Selina Fenech no longer sells PSP tubes.
Please Don't use this tube without a license.
Scrap Kit: Scrap CCS_IB-Enamorte-27-3
You can find this kit by Creative Crazy Scraps
at the Creative Design Outlet  HERE
Mask: WSL 84  HERE 

Here goes:

Let’s start with the mask layer: 
New Raster – 800 X 800.
Open Paper 3.  Open mask (WSL 84) and minimize.
SELECTIONS – SELECT ALL – Copy and paste Paper 3 into selection.
Go to LAYERS – NEW MASK LAYER – FROM IMAGE – SOURCE LUMINANCE - CHECKED – from menu, find WSL 84 – OK.  Duplicate and merge down.  Re-size 115%.

This will be the frame layer:  
Frame 2 – C/P and move it up and a bit left.  Re-size 75%.  Make sure your frame layer is still highlighted.  Grab your magic wand.  Click in the middle of frame.  SELECTIONS - MODIFY - EXPAND 4 pixels.
NEW RASTER LAYER - C/Paste into selection Paper 6.  Keep selected.
Now grab the tube you are using.  If you are using the same one as me, grab it now.  I used the CU without the crow. 
C/P mirror and move her into position. 
Duplicate the tube layer.  
Change BLEND MODE of copy of tube layer to HARD LIGHT and change the original tube layer to SCREEN.

(see tag for placement)

Some elements now: 
Element 12 - C/P and move to upper right corner of tag.  Make sure this layer is UNDER the frame layers.
(see tag for placement)
Element 11 - C/P and move to bottom of frame.  Make sure this layer is OVER the frame layers.  All other layers will be over frame layers also.
(see tag for placement)
Element 5 - C/P and re-size 50%.  Move to bottom middle of frame over element 11.
(see tag for placement)   
Element 4 - C/P and re-size 65%.  Move to lower middle of frame area.
(see tag for placement)
 Element 16 - C/P and re-size 40%.  Move to top left corner of frame.  Grab your eraser tool and erase the parts that show over the frame.
(see tag for placement)
Element 14 - C/P and re-size 50%.  Move to bottom left side of tag.
(see tag for placement)
Element 20 - C/P and re-size 30%.  Move to bottom left corner of tag but to right side of element 14.
(see tag for placement)
Element 15 - C/P and re-size 50%.  Move to bottom left corner of tag over element 20.  Grab your eraser tool again and erase the parts of the cuffs so that it looks like it is wrapped around the chalice.
(see tag for placement)
Element 13 - C/P and re-size 20%. Move to bottom left corner, but to the right of element 15.
(see tag for placement)
Element 17 - C/P and re-size 20%.  Move to bottom left corner but to the right of element 20.

I place the tube layer(s) here:
If you are using the same tube as me, grab her now.  Move her to bottom right side of tag.  I also used a white drop shadow on the tube so it would stand out a bit.  I used the same settings as below.
(see tag for placement)

Add drop shadow to layers of your choosing.
I used
V & H 2
Opacity 70
Blur 7
Color Black
