This Tutorial was written on March 11th, 2012 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.
Do not translate or script.
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 Jose Cano
Use must purchase a license to use his artwork and can do so HERE
This particular tube as a limited edition and is currently no longer avaliable

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using a collab from Pimp My Tags W/Scraps called, “Cupcake Surprise”
Which you can find for purchase HERE
I used a bit for each of the kits for this tag. It's what a collab is for to mix and match and have more than enough elements to choose from and make something entirely new and unique with endless possibilities.
You'll also need some sparkles if you want to follow my tut, any will do. I used the ones from Designs by Sarah's E.T. Kit.

Mask of Choice
I am using Mask349 by Vix
Which you can find for download to use HERE

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

Start a new canvas
600px by 600px
Flood fill with white.

Open tk-cupcakesurprise-element18
Add to your canvas
Resize to 80% and angle -15 degrees.
Add a drop shadow.

Open paper05_CupcakeSurprise_Schnegge
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas below your frame
Use your magic wand to select inside each of the three squares
Select → Modify → Expand, by 8
Invert the selection
On the paper layer, press delete.
Open PDS_CS- paper12
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas, below your other paper layer
Apply the mask to this layer.

Add your tube to the middle and right square
Erase any parts outside the frame
On the middle one change the blend mode to luminosity, opacity at 43%
On the very right now, change the blend mode to multiply, opacity at 25%

Add your tube to the very left frame have it below your frames in the pallate
Add a drop shadow and erase any of the tube that is outside the bottom of the frame.
Duplicate it.
Delete the drop shadow on this layer.
Drag to just above the frame in the pallate.
Erase any of the tube that's over the frame at the bottom
Duplicate it
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0 px.
Change the blend mode to soft light

I used the following from the bottom up with a drop shadow unless stated:

pd12-tulle-01 (no drop shadow)
sb_pmt_cupcake_surprise_ribbon 5 (no drop shadow)

pd12-beads (no drop shadow)
