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 Maryline Cazenave Individual Tube 35-2
which you need a license to use.  This tube is available at CDO

PTU kit by Monti IB-Maryline Cazenave 35-2 available at CDO

Font of choice. I am using  DJB Dear St. Nick 

Mask: WSL Mask 84 Mask links are on the right sidebar

Plugins: Xero Porcelain

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 1 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside both parts with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2,
add a new raster layer below the frame, fill the bottom part with #7b4a39
and fill the top part with #f18fa3

Selections, invert, copy and paste your tube as a new layer, arrange in the top frame, click delete on your keyboard, do the same for the bottom frame, deselect and erase the parts that overlap in each frame, merge the two layers together, duplicate
on the top layer, adjust blur, gaussian 3, change the blend mode to soft light
on the bottom layer, apply Xero Porcelain with default settings, except change the blue to zero

Hide the white background, merge visible

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 80% mirror, arrange on the left side, drag the frame to the right

add the following elements:
element 28 resize 75% arrange on the right edge of the frame in the center of the two frames
element 12 resize 55% arrange on the bottom right
element 7 resize 35% arrange to the left of element 12

element 6 resize 45% rotate right 20 arrange behind the round element on the right
element 13 resize 35% arrange in front of tube
word art 2 resize 75% arrange above tube on the left
element 25 arrange just above the frame layer on the bottom, erase the flower on the left side of it

Copy and paste paper 2 above the white background
apply your mask, merge group, duplicate & mirror, if the dots on the mask don't line up
move one of the masks around until they overlap, merge them together

crop and resize
