This Tutorial was written on December 13th, 2011 by Ashly

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 Lady Mishka
You must purchase her artwork for use and can do so HERE

Kit of choice.
I am using a Scrapkit called, “Emo Princess” by Designs by Sarah
You can find this HERE
I also used a sparkle from somewhere else so if you'd like to find one of those as well.

Mask of Choice.
I am using Mask218 by Weescotslass
Which you can find HERE

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

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

Open Scribble 3
Copy and paste into your canvas
Resize by 75% and rotate -15 degrees
I added a slight black stroke and bevel to the heart.
Add a drop shadow

Open Scribble 4
Copy and paste into your canvas
Resize by 75% and rotate 19 degrees
Add the same stroke but in a pink and bevel to this one as well
Add a drop shadow.

Arrange them on your canvas you can use mine as an example here.

Open pp9
Resize to 600px by 600px
Copy and paste into your canvas and move below the two scribble “frames”
Use your magic wand to select inside of the two shapes
Select → Modify → Expand, by 3.
Invert the selection.
On the paper layer press delete.

Open pp8
Resize to 600px by 600px
copy and paste into your canvas
Drag below the frame background layer.
Apply the mask here.

Add your tube to your canvas and position behind the frames we made.
Once you're happy with this delete the bits outside of them
Change one's blend mode to luminosity and the opacity on that one to 50%
Change the other to luminosity and opacity at 30%
Duplicate this layer and change the blend mode to soft light, opacity at 100%

Add your full tube to your tag again.
Once you like where it's at duplicate it.
To the bottom on add a drop shadow.
To the top one
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blue, radius of 5.
Change the blend mode to soft light.

Now just embellish.
Do so to your liking.
I used the following, from the bottom up, with a drop shadow unless specified.

~Below the mask layer~

splat 2 (no drop shadow)

~Above the mask layer, below the frame background layer~

cribble 1 (no drop shadow)
string 1
ribbon 2

~Above the star 'frame' layer, below the top tubes~

tiara 3 (an outer glow was also added to this one)

~Above the top tube layer~

tar 1
flower 4
flower 1
lower 2
bow 2
bow 3
I added some sparkles from elsewhere here.

Add your name to your tag.
