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 and a half body will work best.

Kit of choice.
I am using a PTU Scrapkit called, “Chilly Delight” by Alika's Designs
You can purchase this kit for use HERE
She has an AMAZING deal this month only.....ALL her kits for only $8....seriously you could create endlessly with her kits and it's any new ones she makes until Janurary as well so be sure to check it out!!

Mask of Choice
I am using Mask84 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 as13
Copy and paste onto your canvas
Resize by 65% and rotated -10 degrees.
Position it in the upper left corner a bit from the middle of the canvas.
Duplicate this layer.
Resize the new layer by 75% and rotate 20 degrees.
Position in the lower right corner.
Add a drop shadow to both of the frames

Open paper01
Resize to 600px by 600px
copy and paste into your canvas.
Drag below the two frame layers.
Use the magic wand to select inside each of them
Select → Modify → Expand, by 10
Invert the selection and on the paper background press delete.
Open paper06
Resize to 600px by 600px
Copy and paste into you canvas
Drag to just about the white layer.
Apply your mask here.

Go to your tube and select the close up layer.
Copy and paste into you canvas.
Resize and position where you'd like this on the left of the canvas, in the larger star frame.
This layer should be between your frame layers and the paper background layer
Once you have it where you'd like it.
Erase any of the parts that are outside of the frame.
Change the blend mode to luminostiy and opacity at 50%
Duplicate this layer.

On the new layer
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, Radius of 5.
Change the blend mode to hard light, opacity at 100%

Got back to your tube and select the half body, copy and paste it onto your canvas.
Resize and reposition so it looks like she's standing inside the smaller star frame.
Once you're happy with this erase any parts that are outside of the frame.
Duplicate it, drag one below the frames the other to the top of everything.
On the bottom one add a drop shadow.

On the top one:
Filter → Xero → Porcelain
All at default, except change the blue channel to 0

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

Filter → Sharpen → Unsharp Mask
All at default.

Now just embellish the tag to your liking with a drop shadow of your choice.
I used the following with a drop shadow, unless otherwise specified, from the bottom up.

~Above the Mask Layer, below the frame background~
as02 (no drop shadow)
as28 (no drop shadow)
as28 (no drop shadow)
as28 (no drop shadow)

~Between the two frame layers~
as09 (no drop shadow)

~Above the top tube layer~
as09 (no drop shadow)
as09 (no drop shadow)

Add your name to the tag.

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

Resize if you'd like to.
