This Tutorial was written on May 9th 2013 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 Zlata_M
You must purchase a license to use her tubes and can do so HERE
This particular tube was a quest item. Look at the quests on the PFD site to see how you could get it as well :)

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using the “Magnolia” Mini by ChiChi's Designz
You can find this HERE

Mask of Choice
I am using Mask5 by Melissa's Creationz
You can find this for download HERE

Additional Filters Needed
PhotoEffex - Scanlines

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

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

Open Frame1
Add to your canvas
Resize by 60%
Duplicate Twice
On the middle one desaturate
Rotate the bottom two a bit
Each going opposite directions
Merge all three together
Add a drop shadow

Open Paper5
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas
just below the frame
Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete
Duplicate this layer
Filter → PhotoEffex → Scanlines
All at default, except the width, change to 3
Change the blend mode to soft light

Open Paper2
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just above the white background layer
Apply the layer mask here

Add your tube to your canvas, resize and reposition to your liking
Duplicate this layer
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to screen
To the bottom tube add a drop shadow

Add your tube once more between the two frame background paper layers
Erase any of the tube that's outside the frame
Change the blend mode to Luminosity
Lower the opacity to 80%

Now add which elements you'd like
I used the following from the bottom layer up with a drop shadow unless stated:

LaceBrush (no drop shadow)
Sparkles (no drop shadow, erase what's over the tube, duplicate twice)

Add your name

Crop your tag to get rid of the access space that's not needed

Resize if you'd like to

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

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