Supplies



A Tube of choice I have used the artwork of Nene Thomas



www.nenethomas.com



I have also used a FTU scrap kit called black and red which you can get here



http://www.azyzam.nl/scrapbook/scrapbook.htm



Mask which you can get from here



Created by Jutta



And Font of choice I used Poster



Plug-in eye candy impact extrude (optional)



VM distortion > kaleidoscope





Ok this is an easy Tutorial but has a couple of steps



Open your tube and your mask



First let’s create a new transparent 600x600 image



Create a new raster and then select all



Open paper 9 and paste into selection change opacity to 50%



Add a new raster and select all



Now open paper 16 and copy and paste into selection



Now go to Layers>new mask>from image



Select mask from drop down menu and source luminance checked only



Merge group and then duplicate your layer and merge down



Duplicate layer again and merge down



Add a drop shadow I used default values



Copy and paste your Tube as a new layer and add a drop shadow



I used V&H 5 opacity 60 and blur 5



Open Red rose and copy and paste as new layer then resize to 50%



Free rotate image 35 degrees and then duplicate layer three times



Move each layer a little until you have a bunch of roses



See my image for approximate layout



Merge the rose layers and move into the crook of arm



Erase part of the stems to look like she is holding the roses



Open bow 10 copy and paste as new layer and resize 30%



Free rotate to 35 degrees and place on stems of roses



Copy and paste red rose again and this time resize to about 40%



Now scatter them about when you have enough and how you want



Merge layers and change opacity to about 65%



Add your text and if using plug-in use extrude with the following settings



Under basic settings use extrude direction 18, distance 20, taper 0, smoothness 50, solid colour and colour of choice, light direction 129, highlight brightness 50, highlight colour white, shadowing 50



Save now



Part two



Add a frame however you like... I used the following settings



Add borders 3px and red add inner bevel 2, w 3, s 40, d 5, a 0, s 20, c white, a 315, i 40, e 30



Repeat with black and then red again



Add borders px 20 black use magic wand to select border and then use VM distortion plug-in



Kaleidoscope and find just play until you find a setting you like



Add an inner bevel with the following settings



Bevel 1, w 2, s 10, d 6, a 30, s 0, c white, a 315, i 40, e 33



Save work



Part three



Promote background layer and increase canvas size to 950



Decoration time...



Duplicate layer and resize to 50%



Move you where you’d like it I moved mine to upper left



Add a drop shadow to your first image I used default and then did it again this time



Using V&H -10



Add drop shadow to your second image this time half of default values and repeat



With your V&H -5



Find which ever decorations take your fancy



This is your tag ... Have fun...



If you wish to put items under your frame



Use your deform tool and perspective or use your control button on your keyboard and left mouse button to manipulate image push the top area together



The doing the same thing pull the bottom area out and it will flatten an image for you



Well have fun don’t forget to add any copyright information when done and your watermark



Resize your image and if necessary sharpen once



Save your work you’re done



Hugs Michelle
