This Tutorial was written on June 23rd, 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
But, if you know your tools you can use any program of choice

Tube of choice.
I am using the artwork of Dirk Richter
You must purchase a license to use his work and can do so HERE

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using a PTU kit called “Pretty In Pink” by Irish Bitch Designs
You can find this kit HERE

Mask of Choice
I am using Mask84 by Weescotslass Creations
You can find this for download on her blog HERE

Additional Filters Needed
Xero – Porcelain
Vanderlee – Unplugged X – Pattern Ofset

You'll also need a heart brush, I can't remember where I got mine I got it awhile ago but there are bunches out there to choose from.

As well as a sparkle brush, I got mine from Obsidian Dawn
Which you can find for download HERE

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

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

Open Frame1
Add to your canvas
Resize to 60%

Open Frame2
Add to your canvas
Resize to 60%
Rotate the silver frame about 3.43 degrees
Merge these two layers down
Add a drop shadow

Open Paper13
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas below the frame we just made
Use your magic wand and select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete

Duplicate the paper layer
Filter → VanDerLee → Unplugged-X → Pattern Offset
Change the blend mode to soft light

Add the close up of your tube in between the two paper layers
I flipped mind horizontally
Erase any parts that are outside the frames after you've got it where you want it and like it
Change the blend mode to Luminosity
Lower the opacity to 50%

Open Paper4
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just above the white background layer
Apply your layer mask here

Add your full tube to the left side of the frame, again I flipped mine horizontally
Resize and position how you'd like
Once you have that
Filter → Xero → Porcelain
All at default, except blue channel set to 0
Duplicate this layer
On the bottom add a drop shadow

Now add which elements you'd like
I used the following from the bottom up with a drop shadow unless stated:
Pearl Circle1
Duplicate the Pearl Circle, desaturate it and reposition

Add some wordart if you'd like

Above that add a new layer
Using a light pink apply the sparkle brush “misty-swirl3” above the elements for just a bit of a sparkle effect

Add another new layer, I put this one above the close up layer but below the second paper layer with the pattern offset on it

I just randomly stamped the little heart out, if you want it to rotate and change colors play with the settings under your brush menu.

For the rotation make sure that Shape Dynamics is checked
I have the size jitter at about 25%
The Angle Jitter at 88%
Again play with these to find what you like

For the Color Changing make sure that Color Dynamics checked
Play with this again to find what you like

I have:
Hue Jitter: 20%
Saturation Jitter: 75%
Brightness Jitter: 83%

Add your name

Image → Trim
Top left pixel color all boxes checked

Resize if you'd like to

****Most Important****
Add your copy right information

If you're happy with you're result save to your liking and you're done!
