PTU Violet

This tutorial was written by me on August 15, 2014.
It was made out of my own creation and any similarity is purely coincidental.
I used PSP X2 but any version would work.

Artist: Sara Butcher
I bought this tube at Creative Design Outlet HERE
Do not use this tube unless you have a license.
Scrap Kit: ScrapBCS_IB-SaraButcher-35-3
You can find this kit by Baby Cakes Scraps at Creative Design Outlet   HERE
Mask: WSL 84  HERE

Let’s start with the mask layer: 
New Raster – 800 X 800.
Open Paper 4.  Open mask (WSL 84) and minimize.
SELECTIONS – SELECT ALL – Copy and paste Paper 4 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:   
Element 22C/P and move it up and to the right on tag just a little bit.  Make sure your frame layer is still highlightedGrab your magic wand.  Click in the middle of frame.  SELECTIONS - MODIFY - EXPAND 4 pixels.
NEW RASTER LAYER - C/Paste into selection Paper 2.  Keep selected.
Now grab the tube you are using.  If you are using the same one as me, grab it now.  I used the tube without the branch here.  Mirror and move her into position. 
Duplicate the tube layer.  
Change BLEND MODE of copy of tube layer to HARD LIGHT and leave the original tube layer on SCREEN.

(see tag for placement)

Now onto some elements: 
Element 42  - C/P and move it to the bottom of tag, then move it just a little bit to the right.  Make sure this layer is UNDER the frame layer(s).
(see tag for placement)
Element 13 - C/P and Move to right side of tag.  Make sure this layer is also UNDER the frame layer(s).  Duplicate and mirror.  Move copy up just a little.
(see tag for placement)
Element 19 - C/P and mirror.  Move to lower right side of frame.  Make sure this and ever other layer is OVER the frame layers.
 (see tag for placement)   
Element 1 - C/P and re-size 60%.  Move to right side of tag over element 19.
(see tag for placement)
 Element 41 - C/P and move to top middle of tag.  I did a quick drop shadow here.  I use the same as usual except I changed the color to white.
(see tag for placement)
Element 15 - C/P and re-size 80%.  Move to upper left side of tag.
(see tag for placement)

I place the tube layer(s) here:
If you are using the same tube as me.  C/P and move to the bottom left side of tag and move this layer under the element 15 layer.
(see tag for placement)

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