Snaggable versions of this tag in my Fotki album

For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X7, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Rachel Anderson - Individual Tube - 15-2
which you need a license to use and is available at CDO

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit by Ladyhawwk Designs 
IB-Rachel Anderson- Individual Tube 15-2  which was inspired by the tube I am
using and available only at CDO

Font of choice, I am using Brotherhood Script

Plugins: no outside plugins used

Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.

Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.

Let's get started!

Open a new canvas 850 x 850 pixels with a white background

Open frame 2 copy and paste as a new layer resize 85% then 75%
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 6 copy and paste as a new layer 
click delete on your keyboard,

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer mirror and arrange on the right side of the frame
arrange in your frame

erase the bits that hang out of your frame where you don't want them

add your elements:
element 3 resize 70% duplicate & mirror the duplicate, arrange below tube layer on bottom right
duplicate the one on the right and drag above tube, take your eraser tool and erase parts of the top flower layer where it goes over the wings and arms, leaving the bottom tube as it is so it shows under the tube 
and you don't have to worry about being exact along the edge

Go back to the original element 3 on the left, rotate left 35, drag over so it meets up with the one on the right side

element 11 resize 35% arrange at the bottom where the two blue elements meet, duplicate and 
drag up, erase the green leaf on the right side of the element at the bottom

element 16 resize 70% rotate right 30 arrange under the blue flowers on the left
erase the butterfly at the very top of it

element 14 resize 60% arrange at the bottom of the blue flowers

add paper 2 above the white background
apply your mask, merge group, resize 80%

crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
