This Tutorial was written on December 11th, 2011 by Ashly
It is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.

Please do not copy and do not post elsewhere.
This tutorial is written as if you have a general knowledge on how to use the program.

***What you'll need***
Program of Choice.
I am using Photoshop CS5

Tube of choice.
I am using the artwork of Elias Chatzoudis
You must purchase his work for use and can do so HERE
One with a close up works best.

Kit of choice.
I am using a PTU Scrapkit called, “Blue Zircon” by Kikeka Kits.
You can purchase this kit for use HERE

Mask of Choice
I am using Mask362 by Weescotslass
You can find her masks HERE

Filters Needed
Xero – Porcelain
Xero - Radience

~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Open up a new canvas
600px x 600px.
Flood fill with white

Open up framestamed
Copy and paste into your canvas
Resize by 70%
Duplicate this twice.
Move them both below the original frame layer.
On the 'middle' new duplicated layer
Convert to black and white and rotate by 5 degrees.

On the bottom duplicated layer
Rotate by -5 degrees.
Image → Adjustments → Photo Filter
Select Cooling filter (80) and the amount to 75%

Merge the three together and add a drop shadow to the merged layer.

Open Paper11
Resize to 600px by 600px
Copy and paste onto your canvas
Drag below your frame layer
Use your magic wand to select inside your frames layer
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert your selection and on the new paper layer press delete.

Open up paper01
Resize to 600px by 600px
Copy and paste into your canvas.
Drag just above your white background layer
Apply your mask here.

Open up your tube.
Go to your close up layer and copy and paste it onto your canvas.
Add it to your frame a couple of times.
Just at different sizes and positions.
Once you're happy with them.
Merge the layers you made together.
Select your paper background layer
Invert the selection and on the merged layer press delete.
Change the blend mode to luminosity, opacity of 50%.

Add your fully body tube to your canvas now.
Position and Resize to your liking.
Filter → Xero → Porcelain
All at default but the blue channel set to 0.

Filter → Xero → Radiance
Something subtle that suits your tube.

Filter → Sharpen → Unsharp Mask
All at default.

Add a drop shadow of choice to this tube.

Now just embellish to your liking.
With drop shadows of your choice.

I used the following in this order, with a drop shadow unless otherwise specified.

~Above the layer mask~

~Above the top tube layer~
tag01 (I added the xoxo to this as well)

Add your name to your tag.

Image → Trim
Top left pixel color, all boxes checked.

Resize if you'd like to.

Add your copyright information!

If you're happy with your tag you're done!

Save it to your liking!

Huge Hugs!
